Today has been very, mmmm – dull. Woke up at twelve, tried to remember how I got home last night, failed to remember how I got home last night so went back to bed. Played F1 2001 for too long than can be healthy and watched “Meet the Parents” (Rob De Niro & Ben Stiller), a funny film [...]


Hursley needs it’s share of axe-murderers.

– Rick (on my chances of getting back into IBM after uni)

If there is such a thing as karma, then I have definitely scored some good karma today. I took “Fur Fighters” back to Game to exchange for “F1 2001”, and could have walked away with both! OK, a little explanation needed .. I was being served by someone who for some reason had to stop serving me and go and answer a customer’s question at the other end of the store. At this point I already had F1 2001 in my bag, and just needed to sign a receipt, so assistant number 2 comes over, I sign the receipt and he gives me “Fur Fighters”. For a moment I considered just walking (heh, they gave it to me!!), but after a moments hesitation my good side came out on top and I handed it back to the guy.

So something good should happen to me now, right? What goes around, comes around ‘n all that. Went out with Ant and two of his mates down from Southampton, we all met up with Ant’s new lady-friend & her mates at 9. Good night out, by half-eleven I was propping up the bar with a pink ‘little miss’ handbag, having been left in favour of the dance floor by the others, needless to say the alcohol consumption rate increased significantly without any of that conversation malarkey to interfere.

I was on the long and winding road to becoming totally, utterly wasted, then out of nowhere … Ricky Martin. I finished off the remaining drinks double-quick and made for the nearest exit.

To Be Deficient

The male chromosome is an incomplete female chromosome. In other words the male is a walking abortion; aborted at the gene stage. To be male is to be deficient, emotionally limited; maleness is a deficiency disease and males are emotional cripples.

– Valerie Solanos

Had a really slack day at work, some IT’s had organised rounders at one followed by a night on the town. So I was planning on a half day, but in the end rounders was as unorganised as I’d expected it to be and didn’t start ’till 3. But never mind as I ended up playing football for 2 hours instead. After an hour playing rounders the idea of a night in their ‘posse’ out didn’t seem quite so appealing, so I stayed in and watched Spaced on DVD instead.

Knives Out

Amnesiac has been out for ages and I don’t think I’ve mentioned it here once, shame on me. Needless to say, I bought the album on release day and it took me a few times through to get into it. Track 6 – Knives Out is probably my favourite on the album at the moment.

Your One Defining Moment

Every generation has its one defining moment. We are yours. – Nicky Wire Started reading Everything (A Book About Manic Street Preachers), by Simon Price. Having never finished a book of my own accord it’ll be interesting to see how far I can get with this one.

Who is JoeX?

Gav can’t remember anything from Saturday, so at least I missed a fucking great party and not one of those crap ones!! Hunted WinAmp skins by JoeX, lots of broken links, but a few successes, any I find will be available on my site for download. A half hour meeting turned into a hour-plus meeting [...]

It Comes Soon Enough

I never think of the future, it comes soon enough. – Albert Einstein, 1930 Recorded my entire Radiohead catalogue into mp3 to burn onto a single cd, unfortunately at 160 kbps they won’t all fit on a single CD so I have to redo the lot at a lower bit rate tomorrow. On the plus side of the weekend, [...]

That Permanent Contradiction

You’re obliged to pretend respect for people and institutions you think absurd. You live attached in a cowardly fashion to moral and social conventions you despise, condemn, and know lack all foundation. It is that permanent contradiction between your ideas and desires and all the dead [...]

The Donut Factory

Andrew: You know what they say: ‘If you work at the donut factory all day, the last thing you want is donuts at home’. Me: If I worked at a donut factory all day I wouldn’t come home for my donuts! I see Phoney Blair got back in yesterday, and in doing so gave himself a nice 50K pay rise, [...]

First Contact

I think it’s the general election today, I’ve managed to avoid all mention of the elections since last Wednesday, but I heard on the radio this morning that a reporter “…will be spending his last day on the election campaign trail today…”. Someone has actually been to the site (other than me & [...]
