This Week 2/6
“A few years ago, everybody was saying we must have more leisure, everyone’s working too much. Now that everybody’s got more leisure time they are complaining they are unemployed. People don’t seem to make up their minds what they want.” Man of the people Prince Philip shares insight into the recession that gripped Britain in 1981.
“A giant ice cream and light-up cocktatil cabinet are just some of the results of Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s eBay addiction. ‘I buy some crazy stuff,’ she says.” The mental world of SEB in The Times Style. Quick there’s even a copy on eBay now!
I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book. – Groucho Marx (Network Awesome)
“If this is shadow boxing, I’ll take mine in the gym” Spiderman
“We could be heading for a cultural catastrophe, when “the seam of pop history is exhausted” and there is nothing left to copy.” Is ‘retromania’ stifling pop culture?
So there’s me thinking that no-one reads this load of ole biscuits and then I start getting emails asking me to write a bit more about me as opposed to just quotes and links… who’d want that I don’t know but hmm… I think I need to start getting angry about some things again. What went wrong?
Well, well… it’s been a week of impending heatwaves and clouded vision. Yes folks, I think I’ve finally reached the end of the ever confusing cul-de-sac that is ‘to smash it’. Well, till the boat departs on Saturday anyway. The white flag has pretty much been waved on all facets of my withering youth…
Been trying to do good stuff to my body this week but seem to have been thwarted at every turn… the highlight being my first ‘run’ (it’s jogging mate, jogging, you’re not running!) has resulted in my struggling to get down stairs due to muscle seizure… I’m proper fit me.
There must be something else I can write about to slightly amuse you but I can’t think what there is. E-Coli, Syria, Bank Siege Man carry bomb… mmm, there’s a reason my cohort has been saying of late as I avidly consume more and more negative news… “it’s cool and everything but can we watch something else?” Good job the summer’s here and we don’t have to while away evening’s indoors isn’t it? Isn’t it?
Went to see the ace Ducktails last night, that were ace, that were. Vaselines, Teenage Fanclub? As me ole mate Joseph remarked, if Kurt Cobain were about he’d go mad over em. Sound downstairs in CAMP’s ace these days too.
This is turning into a diary entry isn’t it?
Right then, best mosey on over to our first in the series of Glastonbury Previews. This week comes from Stonebridge Bar with an exclusive mixtape not mixtape from Danny Heavenly Jukebox ahead of their opening set of the festival… fling the windows open and pretend that it’s the end of the moneth already.
There’s even a little Sonar preview coming next week. I know, I know, you’re on the edge of your seat aren’t you?
Want a Web Economy Bullshit Generator? Look no further.
why not bid for “My ex Brother-in-Law’s shit record collection”
Exciting english pea recipe – comments are good:
The second highest correlated search term to “ransom note” is “buy hedgehogs”, obviously.
A rather superb selectrion from L . this week. Be sure to check his excellent Mango Diary 5 – just out.
Network Awesome: very excellent site.
White Power Milk – what fk is going here?! Am I so inhibited that I find this stuff disturbing?
The 30 Best Pictures Of Bill Murray Playing Golf both courtesy of Rob, ta for them.
Ninety gaffes in ninety years – nice one Dukey. Is it cos you never made King?
Swedish House Mafia Accuse Music Producers Of ‘Raping’ House Music – quite right, you make a stand lads. Your gig on Saturday was the stuff of legend… well, let’s not mention the music but the lasers… mmm the lasers.
It’s my friend Franek’s Bday this weekend… we are having a boat party on Sunday to celebrate about 16 million of our bdays. Have a look at how great he looks in Vice from a few years back. He’s the one of the right of the ‘being gay’ section: “Being gay in university is great because straight boys are at that experimental stage. You will never get such a huge dose of risk-free cock again in your life so drop to your knees and get slurping! See?”
Right I’m off to get someone to pay me to take a lorry of cucumbers off their hands…
