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 [artist]Goldie Lookin' Chain[/artist] 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

[quote]NME.COM is extremely pleased to announce that Shockwaves NME Awards Big Gig ticket holders who bought their tickets through Trinity Street, a company that recently ceased trading, will have their original tickets despatched to them on Monday, by registered post.[/quote]

The actual awards ceremony is going on now, at Brixton Academy, this will also feature a live set by [artist]The Cure[/artist] and [artist]Franz Ferdinand[/artist] and others, that'd be the gig to be at... Supposedly it's being broadcast live on nme radio. I went to it a few times, a long time ago, and we didn't have a full gig as part of the show, best thing I saw was Mark and Lard doing a song as part of their presenting...

UPDATE: found it online.
