It’s facebook page explains it as ‘A Night of magic and mystery to rekindle the hearts of the once enchanted.’Sounds good to me. It also features the band Films Of Colour recently voted band of the day in the Guardian.It’s not far...
Two days ago I tweeted “I need a better name for my number 3 blog.. “I’m bored of ‘Data dump’.. Nik @Loudmouthman was straight in there with ’Taking Paynes’ and Gordon @125f8 turned it around to suggest ’Paynes Take’.And so ‘Payne’s Take’ was born. Lee @LondonFilmGeek sent me a funky...
Urban Survival Lesson 142
You never know what the city might throw at you. When at a party in a posh hotel, never underestimate the cost of the drinks. With lager at £6 a pint and a 50ml whiskey at £12.. it pays to be prepared. A £4 coke is a lot easier to swallow if laced with lashings quality mixing malt whisky. Note: I never normally mix my malt whisky. The coke is camouflage. Posted via email from Payne’s...

London Buskers Need Amplification
This guy stopped playing before I had a chance to grab any audio. He wasn’t singing as such. He was la-la-ing tv & movie tunes. The A-Team, The Damn Busters, The Red Hand Gang. He was certainly bringing a smile to peoples faces. No home, no clean clothes, but he did have perfect pitch. I remember my Ukrainian Grandad telling me that as he walked across Russia during the great famine,...

Dr @AddictionPsyche and her Three-Wheelers
I was heading for home on the Triumph when I saw a large group of bikers parked at the Super Sausage on the A5. I could not help but notice a number of three wheelers and in particular the two in the photo above. One is a Reliant Campervan and the other a trike based on a Honda Civic. Both are owned by a Doctor Vanessa Crawford who is @AddictionPsych on twitter. She very kindly told me a little...

Been up for a while with @Minimentally He has my old iphone 3G. Not sure if this is a good thing but he can unlock it and open apps to play. Then he shuts them down when bored. Having got his head round the iPhone he now thinks all screens should be touch screens. Needless to say the TV is not as interactive as he would like. Posted via email from Christian Payne’s Data...

Diversify To Survive
I was up before the sun was this morning. It’s still not really visible up behind the mountains. I’m in Wales on my Dads farm. He’s less farming more outdoor pursuits & Baavet development (www.Baavet.com) nowadays. His tractor has seen better times. A tractor was the first vehicle I ever drove. When I say I drove I mean I sat on my Dads lap steering. A little grey machine....

Non-stop mobile Wifi with #Vodafone
I’m a passenger today and am amazed that my Vodafone MiFi has remained connected all the way into Wales from south Northamptonshire. Thanks to my PowerFilm solar panel from @Select_Solar it’s still also close to fully charged. I know I could just plug it in to the car.. but that’s less fun. It’s a sunny day so why not harvest the sun. Posted via email from Christian...
