09:38 pm - To boldly go to London where quite a few people have gone before
Hello peeps! 2ndavemusic is coming to London at the end of the week because the comedy musical for which he wrote lyrics, I am Star Trek!, is playing at the Greenwich Theatre in London this Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. Curtain up at 8pm, tickets £14 (£10 for concessions). It takes the mickey out of Star Trek and Gene Roddenberry, Edinburgh News gave it **** and the fans give it **** on average as well. Apparently it is accessible even for non-Trek{kie|ker}s and so I am going to give it a punt. (Would I have done so if it didn't have a connection with one of my Friends? Yes, but I wouldn't have travelled down to London just to see it.)

I haven't booked tickets yet - I'm not sure what availability is like at the moment, to be honest - but am intending to come down to London and attend on Friday night if at all I can. Anyone else want to come along? (malachan and/or titanic_days, if you want to t00b along, in your cases it would be on me.)
Current Mood: sillyLondon! People! Good times!

Of course, the "...and all that" originally comes from "1066 and all that". But for 100 points, which mathematicians wrote
1089 and all that
1729 and all that
What is interesting about these numbers?

Well done! Yo have indeed identfied the history of the numbers and their curious properties, but not the authors. Maybe Chris can help you on this one?

Any particular recommendations? (There was an article with recommendations in today's Grauniad.) I have been through the list and picked out several potentially interesting-looking ones, all in either Westminster or the City of London.

The financial ones (Bank of England, Lloyds of London, HM Treasury...), Barbican (I enjoyed walking around the highwalk, so...), Dept. Culture/Media/Sport, "The Corridors of Power" and all the TV ones.

Ooh, plus you can go and see the projection room at the bfi London IMAX near Waterloo. That would be cool, wouldn't it?

Having never seen Star Trek I'll give it a miss, but what other plans have you got whilst in London? Do let me know...

radinden suggests the weekend offers a good chance to have a look round interesting London buildings; today's soaraway fun-size Berliner-shaped Guardian (quick verdict: still needs folding, so less practical than a tabloid; somewhat ad-heavy, but good content) has a list of recommendations, so I'll probably go and see something on Saturday morning and/or afternoon. Not sure what, though; possibly the Bank of England. However, I could well be persuaded to do something as well / instead, especially by good company. :-)

Saw it...at the Fringe

"I Am Trek" ... Was good entertainment, but not something I'd bother seeing again.

I shall read that as "worth seeing once" and take it as a recommendation!
