Convergence

So today I happened to walk past Forbidden Planet* - past, on my way to Gregg's, I wasn't even planning on going in - and I saw this in the window:



It's a bunch of Belle and Sebastian songs illustrated in comic-book form by real comic writers and artists! I went in and bought it, of course, and some of the artwork is very, very pretty. Haven't read it yet, just flipped through, but there's a variety of approaches - some people have illustrated each line, some have made a story from the lyrics, some have told the same story the lyrics are telling but in different words or whatever. It's very, very shiny.

* Tyoped this as Forbidden Plant, which is a new store I must open immediately.

Isn't it amazing how you can go from being utterly unaware of somethings existence, to needing it absolutely, all in the space of a few seconds?

I want.

Totally. I was lucky - I went from unaware -> needing -> having in less than two minutes :)

Unfortunately my delay will be longer. Damn delayed gratification, damn it all to hell!

*Very* shiny!

Sadly I can't go into Forbidden Planet. Last time I did, I walked out with a £40 model of an Eagle from Space 1999. It's very nice, and sits on top of my G5 Tower quite stylishly, but they've got *four* different types of Eagle! even if I can stop myself collecting all four, they have U.F.O. models as well.

As a sprog I lusted after the Mobiles and Interceptors so badly I know I can't trust myself not to buy them. I had to stop looking on eBay in case I bought a 30-year-old, scabby Joe-90 Air-Car; the only thing I actually whined at my parents to get me, I was usually quite good.

Just thought... the Serenity comic-book must be out by now. Darn, I have to go into FP once I get paid. I'm doomed!
