kingston kenI am bound for London — well, actually Kingston-on-Thames first for the conference. Never been to this campus before but it looks lovely. I’ll be near Hampton Court so I might finally go there. The Royal Horticulture Society had a big show there: the gardens are bound to be lovely.

Of course the conference ought to be a blast. I really get to enjoy it because I am the first speaker after the welcome! Heh, that makes a difference from going in the last panel of the last day. Far more relaxing. All the papers look interesting — after all, it’s Ken Russell!

I’ll be flying down which is a change. Rail tickets have gone up so much it was actually cheaper (not to mention quicker). Going by way of Surbiton which always puts me in mind of Monty Python.

I will have adventures to share, of course: at least a couple of concerts in London afterward, too. I will doubtless share my opinions here. In the meantime I’m just glad to have my paper finished well before time!

    Russell retrospectivizationismings? About far Ken time! If there’s a screaming of ‘Thomas’, I hope you point out to the glitter-thonged throng the visual blunder during the Bernie’s holiday camp sequence, and point and roar at the close-up of Eric Clapped-out where he has a dismembered teddy bear glued to his face (because he shaved off his beard before knowing that a close-up was needed for the groovy wig-out section).
    Kenny and you and Murray Melvin, too!
    The front row’s eyebrows will SINGE at such explosive brilliance.

      We had the screening of TOMMY last night, introduced by Lisi and played at full volume. Much fun. You would not believe how great it was on the big screen!
