More awesome links...

I'm not of the skinny tyres and lycra brigade but I've had my bike for nearly half my life and commute on it practically every day. To say I couldn't live without it would be a serious understatement. So anything that makes cycling easier and more mainstream gets my seal of approval, if only to stop the Cambridge Crazies going on about how rubbish we all are...

Spreading the linkage...

Via [livejournal.com profile] bagfish
http://www.danoah.com/2010/09/disease-called-perfection.html

"Let’s not forget this quote: “I went out to find a friend and could not find one there. I went out to be a friend, and friends were everywhere.” Somebody who is being a friend doesn’t spread “Perfection”. Somebody who is being a friend spreads “Real”. Then, and only then, can we all grow together."

Amen to that.

Organic, vegetarian/vegan skin care

Their products are a little on the expensive side, but nothing is tested on animals, everything is vegetarian, some of it is vegan and all of it is free of all the usual nasty chemicals used in standard cosmetics. :-)

Sacrilege one week today!!

Yes, your regular monthly Sacrilege dose is now just a week away! We're celebrating the summer holidays in style with the best Goth, Industrial, Post-Punk and EBM around. :-) We were so impressed with [livejournal.com profile] nevla's DJ set back in June that we've asked him to come back for another go, so you really are in for a very special treat. And of course your regular DJs [livejournal.com profile] alixandrea and Dvae will also be there keeping the music going right the way through!

Sacrilege
Friday 19th August
Q Club
1 Station Road
Cambridge CB1 2JB

9pm-2am

Entry is the usual £4/£3 concessions, but we're also running a promotion! As we now have the lovely Leroy as our security guard, we have been able to relax our door policy. However, to encourage you all to dress up, we are offering £1 Entry for the Fabulous!! Come dressed amazingly, beautifully or just downright awesomely and you get in for JUST £1! Though I must add that £1 entry (or indeed entry whatever you're wearing) is as always based solely on the discretion of whoever is on the door at the time. ;-)

Flyer and Facebook event link under here )

We hope to see lots of you this month; we've missed quite a few of you recently and it'd be awesome to have you back. We have a new group on Facebook; please feel free to join and let us know what you'd like to see more - or less - of at your club. :-)

Sacrilege tomorrow!! :-D

Come and get your regular dose of Goth, Industrial, Post Punk and EBM at Sacrilege tomorrow, Friday 15th July at The Q Club, Cambridge. Our guest DJ is the lovely NoseGirl from The Calling, playing her very last set in Cambridge before heading down to live in London.

To celebrate the fact that DV8 Fest is just around the corner, I will be dedicating both my sets to the myriad excellent bands that will be performing there, while DJ Dvae will be filling in with the very best music you can expect to hear. :-)

We've got ourselves a great new security guard now, so have decided to relax the dress code. As long as you're lovely and not too drunk you can come in no matter what you're wearing. HOWEVER!! We are running a new promotion - £1 Entry for the Fabulous! Come dressed amazingly, beautifully or just downright awesomely and you get in for JUST £1!! Though I must add that £1 entry (or indeed entry whatever you're wearing) is as always based solely on the discretion of whoever is on the door at the time. ;-)

Guess I ought to make a public post about this for you all...

Just copied from Facebook because I don't want to have to write it all out again:

It occurs to me that lots of you don't know the news that's made me so sad this past week or so as I've only really told a few people close to me. So here it is. Stef, my guitarist from Skelliga, a man I once loved very deeply for all that he drove me mad, is dead. He took his own life last week. The last time I spoke to him was seven years ago, shortly after he broke Skelliga up completely out of the blue. I was just getting my head together after my divorce and thinking about getting back in touch to see how he was and now he's gone forever. We drove each other crazy but he meant so much to me, I never really stopped loving him.

Calling all photographers...

Or at least those of you who came to see Skelliga back in the day. Please can you reply to this entry with links to any online galleries you might have of us? Alternatively please can you email photos to me? My email address is alix DOT corvyn AT gmail DOT com. It's fairly urgent (before next Tuesday) and you'll earn my undying gratitude if you can supply. :-)
