Random Babblings

24 03 2008

Hello, I thought that I just write and see what happens, so I will update you all on a few things.

Firstly I have been spending way too much on music lately, I have bought Example, Cat Power, The Young Knives, The Best of the Spencer Davis Group (a bit of an impulse buy, because its got I am a man on it.  Its the song from the VW Polo advert with the singing dog, which makes me laugh.)  MGMT and Bat for Lashes.  I was going to reviw all of these, but in the end I couldnt do it for various reasons, I will just say that they are all pretty good, Oracular Spectacular by MGMT is the best musically, What we Made by Example has the best lyrics and Jukebox by Cat Power is the most dissappointing, as I was expecting it to be better.

Also on the Music front I went to see Buck 65 last week, I really wasnt up for it, which was a shame, because he was excellent.  The 2 support bands were rubbish though.  I felt quite sorry for the first guy, an MC, so he was the only one on the stage, and his microphone stopped working.  He looked absolutely panic stricken, and you can’t blame him. 

Buck was sporting some good facial hair and some really excellent tunes.  Yet again being an MC and the only one on stage he had surprising stage presence and was busting a few dance moves.  It was a good nights entertainment.

As for the Easter weekend, its been quite good.  I met up with Ebby on Friday and we had a nice meal out and then went to the cinema in the evening.  We saw Vantage Point, which wasn’t as bad as either of us thought it was going to be.  We then went back to mine and sat up drinking and watching crap TV before turning in for the night.  The next morning we didnt really do alot, but it was nice to sit and chat and everything felt far too comfortable.  Even me forcing Ebby to watch the football that I am sure she didnt really want to watch was quite nice, even if we did lose 2-0 to Spurs.

After I had dropped Ebby back at the station I went to the parents and cleared out a bit of the loft, and finally forced Mum to get rid of a load of crap that I have been saying to get rid of for a while.

Easter Sunday brought a nice meal at the parents followed by going round to some friends.  What followed we shall describe as drunken debaucherry. We finished off 3 bottles of spirits and I burnt my tounge on some flaming German stuff.  I got home at half one and passed out on the sofa after sending inappropriate but grammatically fine (considering I was wasted) text messages.  I eventually got to bed at 4 am.

I woke up this morning with no hangover, but with some stomach twisting and I was shaking like a nervous dog.  This has now subsided a bit and after a crispy chicken sandwhich and a packet of mini Creme Eggs. 

All through this I have been living the England Cricket Supporters nightly heart attacks, after a terrible first day and innings, the second got better with the collapse of the New Zealanders.  Then last night a great second innings started, we are firmly in the driving seat and should win the series.

Anyway, a bit random but there you go, loads has been going on, and my writers block doesn’t appear to have got any better.  Later.
