The 8th Cathedral Arts Festival is in full swing in Belfast right now:
I can't tell you how great it is to have so many exciting performers in town - the 'Festival of Fools' is injecting a very needed dose of comedy, surrealism and surprise into the street scene here: I was in a bad mood this morn and a troop of Ugandan Acrobats brightened me right up - the icing on the cake was meeting friendly LTA fan 'Steve' whose hearty handshake, though it caused discomfort the rest of the day - and possible some bruising, was testament to his love of the Podcast.
(As to why I look and pose the way I do in this photo: well, I'm a natural clown and I find this look and expression comes in handy while dodging debt collectors, stalkers and ex-wives; you never know.
Also I'd like to take this opportunity to say sorry to the LTA listener who approached me in Manchester last week - I didn't stop to chat as was deep in conversation with the creator of 'Project X' and my mind was focused on that - many apologies).
