Bit of a nasty bout of “that fluey thing that’s been going round” topped off with tonslilitis. Great fun. Made up for lost time this weekend though. There seems to be loads of birthdays this time of year so I’ll say a big DragonDrop happy birthday y’all. Random acts of note – got microcosmos on DVD and have painted the… Read more →
Eugh. I feel rough today. Aches and pains. Very sore throat. Tonsillitus on top of this lot is not helping. Soluable solpadine and a big ol’ bottle of lucozade is helping though (thanks Eirene x). A bit of work therapy may help take my mind of feeling sorry for myself. I also found out that I was eliagable for a… Read more →

Noticed this scene out the back window just now whilst making a cuppa tea..Idle since summer, standing tough and ready for action… Tonka’s rule.
A light (disappointing) sprinkle of snow was on the ground this morning. The boys got all excited. I can’t remember the last time we had a proper dump of snow round these parts. Not like when I was a lad (by eck) when we lived up in’t Dales and we’d get a foot of snow… sometimes 2 foot and upwards…. Read more →
The Haggis Horns down at The Late Lounge last night were Awesome. Great set up – brass lead 7 piece, backed up by a great rhythm section. The percussionist had a very desirable rig! Congas, cow bells, timbale, symbols and hitty things.. looked great fun. Heavy weight, super tight, mainly home grown (as far as I could tell) funk central…. Read more →
Good night at Doctor Wu’s last night with Brett and Neil. Had a keyboard players join us and a female singer stole the show! She was ace. Looking forward to tonight in a big way.

DJ Johnnie Fredericks mixed up the vinyl whilst Ben Lacey (sax) Al Smyth (guitar) Me (percussion) and Tom Taylor (Human beat box!) free formed over te top of it. I really hope we… Read more →
