Remote controlled plane + video camera = DA BOMB

This is great, just saw it on popbitch, a video camera fitted to a remote controlled plane and some excellent flying skills:

Countdown, twenty four hours and we'll be at the gig. I would say we'll be at our annual gig, but I'm going to TWO (count 'em) this year, off to Goldie Lookin' Chain in a few weeks too. It's all go, it's like my London glory days...

I like to check out this page on to see if there are updates regarding the gig, and I learned from there that nme's ticket shop has gone into liquidation! People who bought tickets from the recommended link (that I guess NME were making a little extra commission on) had a panic last week. NME say
