Just finished reading “The War of Don Emanuel’s Nether Parts” by Louis de Bernières. It’s a superb read. It’s the third book I’ve read of his and I loved every moment of it. Amongst the things I love about his master of the art writing style is the way he describes place. The first book I read of his was… Read more →

Top night FIRE was on Sunday. I think we have finally cracked it with the layout for that place. Ram packed, superb music from all the DJ’s – I particularly loved playing along to Mike H. Dissident, the new (to FIRE) chap was ace – he did 2 till 4. Much fun and frolic. Went to Moko Lounge after that… Read more →

Warrington

Warrington, originally uploaded by DragonDrop. Staying in Warrington tonight. The last time I experienced music in Warrington (or Warrington in general for that matter) was to come and see Radiohead. Tonight, very randomly I saw a battle of the bands, due to the fact I was having a general explore and heard some music. A 6 piece band called Dropscience… Read more →

This is a bit freaky in a ‘big brother is watching’ kind of way, a chap I’m working with at the moment needed a scan of a bank note for a graphic / design he’s doing.. I had my camera with me so I offered to take a snap of the afore mentioned cash. I took 2 photos, and sent… Read more →

This thing is ace – We Feel Fine / by Jonathan Harris and Sepandar Kamvar never before has blogosphere been directorised like that! I like it. Much better drive over to Cheshire today. Came the A59 / M56 / M6 way. Sunny morning, only one hold up and that wasn’t that bad. (an incident between a ford ka and an… Read more →

It’s a while since I’ve had to experience the wrath of the M62 on a wet Monday morning rush hour. It’s incredible how busy it gets. Set off about 06:40 I reached the M621 / M62 merge south of Leeds by 07:15 ish and it was bumper to bumper. 8 miles east of the M60 things stopped. Crawled my way… Read more →

Stayed in last night with Sophie. Eirene went out on her first girly night out for months. She had a nice time by all accounts. Very soon we’re off to Native State to try out their Sunday Roast. Something that they are very proud of. Locally sourced meat is the bit that did it for me. Also phrases like “everything… Read more →

Very tired today. Had a busy day that involved meeting 2 big deadlines and driving to Cheshire for a meeting, getting home (in time to watch half an hour of Big Brother 7 opening on the telly) Before I had to go out and take photos of a friends shop front. I ended up hanging about there to watch his… Read more →

Amongst the many many many things that made me decide as a kid that films just couldn’t ever get better than Starwars (now called “Episode IV a new hope”), was the scene when Princess Laya appeared as a hologram from R2D2 and chanted “Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, your our only hope…” I thought about how cool a thing like that… Read more →

Belleville Rendezvous (AKA Triplettes de Belleville) Watched a fantastic film last night. All the qualities of what I think a good film should be. Great characters, very believable (even though it’s a feature length animation). Bruno the dog is fantastic – his facial expressions and body language had us in stitches. There is a waiter who is also absolutely hilarious…. Read more →
