However, he kicked off the month with this delightful picture from the pantry of the Buxton Billet.

Then he went on to upload all the old, beloved XFM Podcasts. The 'Best Of' version has Zac's artwork.
He did a gig for Friends of the Earth....(and another picture here)

The following week, he took Kernel Panic for another twirl around the country. Tickets sold out so quickly in Nottingham that he had to add another show.
He lent his voice to George's Foot in the Door video.

Adam posted this picture in May and I'm hoping it heralds his inclusion in an episode of Gadget Man. It might have just been a light lunch with Graham Linehan, though.

Adam was briefly on The Horne Section which I really ought to put on my nuggets blog since it's gone from the iPlayer now. Can I also recommend Alex Horne Breaks The News from Dave? Thank you.
The month finished up with the first outing of XL Recordings BUG Special at the BFI.

More pictures from Ben Meadows here and here plus WoznotWoz took this Instagram. Creative Hub reviewed the night.
ceased to work on Ant-Man. I cannot begin to imagine how this has felt for them both. They had worked for so long to bring this to the screen and had been encouraged all the way along the line, until now. If you look back over the various interviews throughout the years, any reference made was always tentative. We may never know if that was because they were always wary that their concept might not eventually be accepted by the Marvelverse but they, especially Edgar, had their feet firmly wedged in the starting blocks and this must have felt like they'd twisted their ankles seconds before the gun went off.
It was a busy month for fan activity too.
A dear Twitter friend was inspired by some frozen weesticks.

Last day of the Mogwai N.American tour has been cheerified further by listening to the @AdamBuxton and Joe BBC podcasts on the tour bus.

Finally, why not pass a few moments looking at Adam's Vines?
Annoyingly, I can't see how to embed with an audio toggle. It's either on (tiny bit irritating after a while) or off (eerily quiet). Soz.
