Europeans



Looking at this video reminds me that Europe isn't so great after all... I think I made the right decision in going to the Troubadour instead of making sure I caught that plane.

ps I'll try to post on different subjects as soon as I get over myself.

holiday through computers



instead of actually going on holiday I'm now going to have to live the experience through my computer. I have to say, THIS is a holiday I would like to be going on. Wow Wee!!

douchebag douchebag douchebag



Like a complete douchebag I went out last night and missed my plane to go on holiday this morning. I didn't even get as close as the picture suggests (that isn't me), its not like i was running late and got there just past check-in. I completely fucked it up and woke up at the exact time the flight took off. In a way that's kind of impressive.

Having to pay loads of money to fly out tomorrow isn't.

car park pervert.


My office toilet has a window that looks onto a dingy alley way. It is frosted, but we tend to leave the top half of it ajar. It’s about eight ft above street level so there’s no chance of anyone peering in unless they are on horseback which seems fairly unlikely. I was happily urinating a few weeks ago, staring blankly out of the window when I realised there was a multi storey car park on the other side of the alley and that there was a businessman looking down at me. It has left me perturbed. Now I have to close the window every time I piss, then open it afterwards. Which is a real fucking pain in the ass. Thanks a lot car park perv.You can kind of see the car park in the picture...

ps


if you like Ben Rayner's posts, you might like to try out this blog he writes. He does it through his alter ego - a homeschooled 16 year old boy - and writes about important issues like how bad abortion is.

standards of english



Dear Sirs,

Upon entering a local convenience store in Hackney, London to buy some tampons I was shocked and appalled to see the above headline on the London Evening Standard. For years I have been campaining for the use of proper English grammar in all situations. Yet, my work is constantly undermined by knife-wielding street churls and 'popular culture'. I look to the last bastions of Brittania, the Daily Mail, to uphold my ideals of proper language. However, their bastard child the Evening Standard can here be seen to resort to street slang to refer to the wonderful Red-Cross workers who saved this young boys life. For Goodness sake, London is not one big football ground. I for one will refuse to buy any newspaper until we can all agree to call women women. And not the colloquialism 'gash'.

Yours in disgust,

Lynne Truss

Gravediggaz




I am currently playing the whole of 6 Feet Deep, also known as Niggamortis (considered a less commercially friendly title) over the office stereo. Not sure how the office is feeling lines like 'I fuckin hate crackers'... GREAT album though.

NEW BLOGGER!




After weeks of anticipation - Ben Rayner has LANDED!(as you can see below)

I won't be



Listening to this song in the park, or i definitely will get worried about somebody 'smoking' me and have to go home (again, Right-click to save)




Dr Dre & Snoop - Deep Cover

I think I might


go to the park and read a book... On the other hand, I might freak out and worry I'll see someone I know and play Grand Theft Auto instead. Either way, I'll probably be listening to music like this today (Right-click to save them)






Angela & Rene - I Love you more (than you'll ever know)

Nathan Fake - The Sky was Pink (James Holden Remix)

Cream - Strange Brew

Alton Ellis & The Flames - Girl I've Got a Date

In fact I've uploaded a better version of this Alton Ellis & The Flames song here on Div Share, which is brilliant. It's off a Trojan Compilation 'Work Your Soul' which is excellent and full of soul versions of Trojan songs. In fact, it also features this song:

The Gaylets - Here Comes that Feeling (aka that lonely feeling) which I don't recommend listening to on a sunny day as it will really bring you down.



... Yeah I know, I'm eclectic.

bad start

"Boris Johnson, the new London mayor, made his first policy announcement today – banning the consumption of alcohol on all public transport in the capital from June 1.

However, the move immediately drew criticism from transport unions claiming the policy could endanger transport staff.

From next month anyone found drinking or carrying open alcohol containers on any of London's buses, tube trains, trams or the Docklands Light Railway is liable to be ejected. If the offender resists, the British Transport police can be called to help remove them."

More free music

This Website is pretty handy if you want to download loads of the Best Albums of All Time... If you consider Lou Bega to be a seminal artist. Still, there's some good free music on there. And to entice you in, here's a picture Jamie Cullum looking ALOT like Caius.

More 70s Rock / Gangsta Rap links



Would you believe that all those Gangsta Rap phrases you know and love were really around for years and used by Whitey??

Check out this Steely Dan track about having a party with loads of dancing chicks and nobody fighting - "No Static at all". Pretty much a direct precursor to "Today was a Good Day".

FAO: Foreign Bus Drivers



Can you just be a bit more careful, please? Stop crashing buses with Britons on them.

Carry on driving really fast and ignoring basic common sense if you're only carrying locals, god knows I won't ever hear about it.

I Heart U




Dear NoodlesandBroth,

My boyfriend of 2 months just sent me the below e-mail. Does this either mean that he is 'The One', or that he actually wants to rip out my heart and dismember me?

Thanks,
Nicola



My Dear Nicola,

Thank you for the phone call earlier this evening. It was such a lovely surprise, I was in a state of shock! Darling I thought I could handle being apart from you... I was wrong. My beautiful darling Nicola I love you! Just writing that puts a smile on my face. Darling I'm always thinking of you. It hurts to be so far apart. I miss you so much. I want to be with you and hold you. I want to gently touch your face in my hand as I look into your dark inviting eyes. I want to snuggle with you. I want to hold your hand across the table at a restaurant. I want others to be jealous of our intimacy for one another. I want to lie next to you in front of a fire and gaze into your eyes. I want to romance you. I want you to know how much I cherish you. I want to give my heart to you. I want your heart, I want it all.

Love Antoin x x x

Mens Health



Erm, is this thing an annual or something? Every time I see it in shops or advertised I'm sure it has exactly the same picture on the cover with the same headline – 'Lose your Gut', or 'Get a 6 pack'. Do these guys realize the reason their magazine gets left on the shelf for a whole year is because anybody who gives a shit about that sort of thing already has 6 packs?
