I see a ship in a harbour

Went to the Peter Hook gig at Coherent on Thursday - it was awesome!

I wasn't expecting that much - 40-something (ok 5-something) bass player DJing - but he was cool. No technique, just great choons (and quite a lot of them matching *my* record box).

Jackson to remake "Dambusters"

Peter Jackson is to remake the WW2 classic movie "The Dambusters".

I wonder whether they will change the name of Guy Gibson's dog?

Also, I really hope he does it without CGI. There are two Lancasters still flying they could use for the aerial shots (as well as lots of genuine wartime footage that could be spliced in). The Waikato dams could be mocked up to look like the Ruhr.

It'd be so much better than a high-tech cartoon!
