My favourite Halloween joke:
Small child: "What's Dracula's favourite fruit?"
Us: "We don't know - what's Dracula's favourite fruit?"
Small child: "An apple."
Small child's mum: "A nectarine."
The Scotsman has a nice write up here of Sound Festival including a favourable mention for "You Can't Get There From Here", composed by me and five composer pals and performed by Ensemble Thing.
