Dusseldorf

Went shopping... went out early, a mental, loud, obnoxious, rude, vulgar, energetic, permanently drunk guy called Sean drove another four to Dusseldorf. Keith and I were on the search for USB extension cables and a basic HUB (cat 5 style). Which we got... now, using our funky wireless arial that we've selotaped to the side of the building, we can get intermittent Internet access on our 2-computer network. Which makes me a very, very happy bunny.

Anyway... we split up, three of us went to a large multistorey indoor shopping center. The top three floors were devoted to technology, music, etc. We got computer kit there. I picked up a nifty 256MB USB drive for €15 (£10), which I think I've lost. I also found a large corner devoted to music, including lots of alternative stuff.

I bought:

Sisters of Mercy - Vision Thing. The only Sisters CD that I didn't have but have been meaning to buy forever. With this one, I can now (FINALLY!) give away the "Best of" CD to someone unsuspecting as I don't need it anymore.

Tristania's new album, Ashes, which rocks in choral, dramatic, gothic metal glory. My second Tristania CD.

VNV Nation's new CD, Matter & Form.

Dead Can Dance - Into the Labyrinth

E Nomine - Die Prophezeiung

Delerium - Karma
Delerium - Semantic Spaces

Haven't listened to most of them... I have a year's backlog of partially looked at emails, and a million other things to do.

Duseldorf is a good city, polite, clean, simple, etc... in short, it's not British! Nothing beats London, my beloved spiritual home, but London is not polite, clean or simple.
