Hello world. My computer is sort of dead, so assume I am without email, and making very challenging music on a reel to reel machine.
Oh yeah, all those times I played I Feel Love have been cosmically rewarded by:

Syd has tonsillitis. Sick kids are always a worry, especially for a Zulu worrier like myself, and I always freak out whenever he gets a temperature because of his history of febrile convulsions. That’s where your kid stops breathing and turns cold and blue. I recall the first one quite vividly, as I didn’t know [...]

OK, Day 3…are we here already?
So we all gradually awaken, each musician slightly more obscure and hungover than the last, and tuck heartily into thee breakfast. Probably Patrick roams about 16% wider over the bill of fare and with about 47% more good grace.
Then we listen to Fannypack, which I get [...]

I am now officially back from Spain, but it might take a while for what passes for normal service to resume.
Yesterday was hilarious. I woke up after precious little sleep feeling particularly awful and estranged from myself. This was because of all the holiday drink, and also because I’d decided to orally ingest [...]

Went to Colchester a month or so ago with the Bad Timing posse to see the last V/VM gig. I was feeling incredibly physically weary and spiritually fucked-over, but I forced myself to go, and I’m glad I did because it definitely joins the long list of best gigs ever. I’m feeling a bit physically [...]

[...]

Here is a list of things wrong with my computer:
My anti-virus thing (AVG) is out of date. This means that when I boot up I am told that my anti-virus thing is out of date. An update automatically begins downloading. However, at that point:
An error message concerning Windows Media Player comes [...]

Hey, I forgot the point of the last entry, which was to chucklingly inform you that my brace of Technics 1210s are being hired by The Labour Party for their “victory” do. At twice the going rate, I might add, not that that bit was my doing. Also, since I will be holidaying in the [...]

About five years ago one of my mad-ass buddies from my keraaaazy years at college announced he was going to vote Liberal Democrat, and I snorted because I didn’t know what to say. I didn’t see how you could sniff the very rectum of reality on acid one minute and vote LibDem the next. Then [...]
