    I just noticed the classic Adam West Batman logo shirt. Nice. :lol: Take that, oppressors of the world!

    Last few days I went on a business trip to Genoa, on the Ligurian Riviera, between the Tuscan coast and the French Côte d'Azur.

    While not really a "beautiful" city (it's basically a dilapidated Middle Age maritime city with a huge industrial harbour stuck in the middle of it), it does have its charms.

    I managed to take a couple of interesting shots of it.

    Very modern building looking upon the shipping harbour. The old tower in the middle of the picture is the Lanterna, the old lighthouse that is the symbol of the city.

    Two pictures of the sun setting behind the Porto Antico (old harbour), now a cultural centre and tourist area.

    I went to see Erasure in concert last Tuesday night. (Yes, before anyone asks, they're still around. Their new album came out a couple of weeks ago and is #2 on the Billboard dance/electronic chart.) I was up in the balcony, so most of my pictures didn't turn out too well, but here are a couple:

    I'm sort of regretting that I didn't take any pictures last time I saw them, because I was a lot closer.

    I also took some videos, but I haven't uploaded it yet. If/when I get around to it, I'll post a couple of those as well.

    Ooh, Erasure! I'm envious. :)

    JayOwl, love your pics. The Penwith area is my favourite place in the UK. We always stay in St. Just when we're down there. You can never tire of that incredible scenery.

    I tried starting up a thread, but it didn't last. :(

    Cheers. :)
    Absolutely- it's a beautiful area. I hadn't been there for a long time (aside from one visit to St Ives earlier this year) and I don't think I'd ever been right to Land's End. I'm living near Truro now, barely 40 minutes away so I'll probably be back there before long. I saw several signs for St. Just, I think we might have driven through it actually. It was a great day, one of my friends drove us in this amazing car:

    I wasn't aware that there was a feud. Do tell!

    Vince Clarke (the keyboard player for Erasure) was originally with Depeche Mode. He left them very early on, though - I think the last song he recorded with them was "Just Can't Get Enough." He went on to form Yazoo with Allison Moyet before forming Erasure with Andy Bell. That was 30 years ago, though (yikes :eek:), and my understanding is that Vince opted to leave the group - he wasn't kicked out or anything like that.

    Vince Clarke was the founding member of Depeche Mode, in fact he wrote Cant Get Enough. After he left, he formed Erasure and there has been a mild feud between the bands. In a Erasure video, sorry can't remember for which song. They spray painted across the large loud speaker, which at the time was the symbol for Depeche Mode. I was totally being tongue in cheek, Depeche Mode actually recorded a song with Erasure. Being from the 80's, I loved the back and forth between the two bands.

    Frog is good. The only thing new to me there is the python but I'd certainly give it a try. Hey, I notice the squid rings are on sale. Who's down for some calamari and some spicy aioli?
