Writing Armageddon in your diary seems a bit risky, especially as I’d been reading Cormac McCarthy’s The Road.

But Armageddon 2010 kicked off pleasantly enough on Friday when I bravely barrelled up and said Hi to Michael Winslow (famous for his noisemaking prowess in the Police Academy movies) on Victoria Street.

Today we saw  Robert Rankin, Paul McGann, and the whole spectacle of costumes, wrestling, DVDs and Twilight merchandise. Was a bit star struck sitting with Mo-mo in the table next to Paul McGann. My gosh, he was I in “Withnail and I”, nevermind Dr Who. He’s still ravishingly gorgeous with a fetching King Monkey/Liam Gallagher gait.

There are some photos up on The Pulse Te Auaha website too.
