See, I’m spending a fair bit of my time at the moment working on a secret project. Again. Last time around, this was The Devil’s Music. This time around, it’s not. It’s.. Ah, no, can’t tell you yet. But soon. Very soon.
We had a Jinx Gathering last week, when 40-odd folks from Jinx’s ten year history (that’s not ten years of moviemaking, but ten years of doing stuff with the brand identity of ‘Jinx’. Years before TrashHouse, I was above a pub in Essex compereing the Jinx Comedy Club). It was bloody brilliant to see folks we hadn’t seen in years and share a pint or two with them, and I hope we get to do it again before long. It’s always good to touch base. I set out with the clear objective of alternating pints of lager with pints of shandy, and succeeded except for the ‘pints of shandy’ bit. Despite that, I managed to avoid getting utterly bladdered (although I realise these things are relative) and thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
On a non-Jinx front, the weekend before the gathering we went to see The Faint playing in a tiny little venue called Cargo. I’d like to take this opportunity to say that The Faint are one of the best live bands I’ve ever seen, and to encourage everyone to run off and check their MySpace page at http://www.myspace.com/thefaint and check out new single The Geeks Were Right. That’s my plug for the day..
Oh, and we’ve got a final contract for Hellbride sitting on the office table, which we expect to be signing in the next day or so. I’ll keep you posted.
