Today, I rediscovered good things.
First came OpenRA, an open source version of Red Alert, an old computer game from the 90s.
Secondly, I learned that Winamp is to be revived next year. However, a beta version is already available. I stuck with the classic skin.
Eleven years ago, I saw Madness at Newcastle arena. It was an uncomfortable evening, since I had freshly broken ribs, but it was a must because there hadn’t been a tour in years.
Now, Christmas gigs are the norm, although I’d not been to one since they switched from the academy to the arena. Last night’s tickets were something of a random purchase; I don’t really like the arena as a venue, but alcohol influenced my purchase.
Anyway, I was happy with the outcome.
Generally, I don’t bother with support bands, but the Fratellis were worth seeing.
