    This fucking ridiculous with a capital T.

    That is, if they are all public events. London is like a games convention through late October… I ahve to go to ONE of these.

    Fuck what an awesome country we live in.

    There will no doubt be a bunch of excellent fringe events too.

    There is also Playful, which I am considering.
