Manchester Science Festival

so Thursday 18th i was at the Manchester Science Festival's "You Have Been Upgraded" event. it was absolutely fantastic. i was part of a panel of speakers talking about the various facets of transhumanism, alongside the futurist Ghislaine Boddington and the Spanish cyborg artist Manel Munoz, both of whom were great to share a conversation with - many other awesome people were there too. it was really good to get out and talk about my shit with some other weirdos. the highlight of the evening was a live chip implant done by Jenova Rain (someone i really highly recommend if you want magnets done or xNTs put in!) but it was also ace to hear from the prosthetics and futurist bits of the panel, and watch a gorgeous tattoo being finished by the amazing scientist-tattooist Rebecca de Cadorette. it was such a good night.

in other news, i'm also gonna be at BDYHAX 19, a conference in the States about body hacking (obviously.) it will be a bit of a bitch getting a passport and visa sorted but as soon as my payment for the last event comes through, i'll be sending a passport renewal off ASAP. i'm really looking forward to it and there's also Grindfest 19 so a lot of things are kicking off from my point of view. it's all good.

Nice going there, Lepht. The very fact that you were able to relax and have a good time, is encouraging news. And now BDYHAX 19 is coming up, and hopefully Grindfest.

Lepht is on a roll.

Don't wait to get paid from MSF. This is too important. Just let us fans know how much the passport fees are. I'm sure we can get together to cover it.
