I love the ZZ9 editor. She's managed to find a London pub that's wheelchair accessible, serves the real ale and has a fucking bar billiards table! Get in! :D The venue and date have been set, and MH is being stuffed on Saturday - I advise ZZ9ers to keep the Saturday after Eastercon free, since that's the only possible date within the timeline suggested by the AGM.

As I have briefly mentioned before, I have been to a couple of recordings of a new BBC Radio 4 show entitled The Musuem of Curiosity. The premise is an interesting one - use the medium to create an imaginary museum into which anything can be placed, from the actual to the conceptual. Make John Lloyd (he of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Blackadder and QI) the host and make Bill Bailey the curator of the museum. Invite three guests each week to talk about themselves for around twenty minutes each before asking them which three items they would like to place in the museum.

Bill Bailey helps lend an air of humour to proceedings, but generally speaking the show is more interesting than funny, although the first episode to be recorded (which I attended and have a feeling will go out mid-series, rather than first) was not as good as the third to be recorded - the first was very dry and so although interesting, not terribly entertaining. The third got the mixture right.

However, the coolest thing about the third recording is that one of the guests was Ben Elton. That means I've been in the same room as Ben Elton, that does. I recommend tuning into the series when it finally hits BBC Radio 4, as it's got potential and I'd like to see it carry on for a while.

Oh, and Bill Bailey is brilliant. Just so you all know.
