I figure I need to keep smiling tonight, cause if I look serious, people are gonna run away! It's scary! While I'm playing it feels like hard work and a bit too cold, but when I've finished there's loads of fantastic pics, videos and good memories.
The best, maddest moment is when a huge pink bunny comes up and requests some Barry White. I've played 'My First, My Last, My Everything' hundreds of times, but the sight of a seven foot tall walking Duracell advert, throwing cheesy John Travolta dance moves would be enough to put Jimi Hendrix off his chords! Far too funny to do anything let alone play guitar.
I see a baby walking up so, obviously, I launch into the Ronnetes... 'The night we met, I knew I needed you so...', the baby's singing along, and all his mates are singing along. Apparently he's from spain and he's not dressed as a baby for halloween, he's just a pervert!
A huge gang of animals go mad and loopy to the Arctic Monkeys and 'Stuck In The Middle With You'. Some fantastic guys in wrestling costumes come up and start throwing each around. So many bizarre moments in one night!
Some people haven't got a clue how to use a camera. I've got a three second clip of my out of focus feet, saying don't press the button or it'll stop!' Doh! But Tasha is doing a photography degree, so she knows exactly which button not to press. Give me a week, then click 'video' at the top, I'll post something funky.
There's far too much going on to remember many names. But big shouts to the Sick Russian Girls, The Seven Foot Pink Duracell Bunny, Ian, Photo Tasha, The Wrestlers, The Spanish Baby, The Joker, The Guy Who Got His Face Slashed On The Way To The Pub, The Ugly Monster, The Yellow Munter, Too Many Sexy Black Pussycats To Remember, Sexy Witches, Ugly Witches, Green Witches, The blood Soaked Slasher Teen Bride, Lady Whiplash In The Jodpurs, Count Dracula, The Gay Superheros, The Six Hitting Cricketers, Sudeep, Mysterious Dave, Greek Alexander The Great (ish), Greek Singing Haris from Greece, Big (small) Ronnie, Big (huge) Dan, and The Happiest Littlest Woman In All Cambridge. I pose for a photo with her, and even on my knees, she's only just taller than me. But her smile's wider than my guitar!
