Today is the day when...
I got up early, intending to use a day free of meetings and other distractions to clear a large stack of work.

Today is also the day when...
The development system went down. FAIL. Oh well, hello The Internet.

In more enjoyable stuffs, I went on a Tube Walk on Sunday around Colliers Wood and saw pylons, trams, peacocks, canals, murals and LJ-ers, thanks to excellent navigation and organising by [ profile] hoshuteki and [ profile] miss_newham. Along the way I took 913825482 photos - the decent ones are on my Flickr. Curry at Kastoori afterwards was k-num. I et far too much of the Sundays-only moong rice but managed to leave room for a ras malai for pud. Which reminds me: must make barfi.

It's POPTIMISM this Saturday at the Cross Kings. I'm guest DJing the young persons' pop music along with [ profile] atommickbrane plus yr regular hosts [ profile] freakytigger and [ profile] barnetape. Plonk yr requests in the comments. It is going to be VERY AWESOME INDEED.

Hooray, lovely Xmas despite miserable weather raining off pubbe visit (will make up for tomorrow). Ma and Pa very happy with the wine & the photo album & and the FOUR WHOLE HOURS of Gary Moore live DVD. I now have a nice fat copy of Against the Day to cart around and a book called Extreme Cuisine which seems to be in the "they eat different stuff in forrin y'know" vein and has a chapter about marmite. There are some useful insect recipes for my next dinner party though.

Speaking of food, I have eaten all of it with some extra spuds, followed by Xmas pud. I am now washing it down with all the beer.

I enjoyed Doctor Who and the Titanic Emo lots but Harry Hill's Xmas TV Burp was funnier and had a more convincing Queen.

Happy Wobs all!

1. Go to the Wikipedia home page and click random article. That is your band's name.
2. Click random article again; that is your album name.
3. Click random article 15 more times; those are the tracks on your album.

Ambitious 3rd album falls way short of the mark... )

It's week 2 of Freaky Trigger and the Lollards of Pop tonight at 7pm on Resonance 104.4 FM (or

This week on a Very Special Episode, [ profile] barnet_ape presenterates. [ profile] atommickbrane, [ profile] fathands & [ profile] freakytigger guesterate while I producerate. I'm told the job involves being very careful not to play any music on pain of Bill Drummond burning a million remaindered copies of The Manual outside my front door. Instead, you can look forward to a music-free mix of ideas, facts, banter, rigorously-researched lies and SURPRISES.

Another mememe. This time from [ profile] freakytigger

This is Acclaimed Music's aggregate list of the top 107 albums of the 1990s (as of now). Put any that you own in bold. Put any that you have heard all through or used to own in italics. Put a strikethrough any that you hate (whether you've heard them or not!). Underline any you want to hear. And put an asterisk by any that you would count as one of your own favourite albums of the 90s.

200 cider-fuelled Saturdays on South Parade Pier couldn't make me like RHCP )

Everyone's doing it y'know...

These are the top 106 books most often marked as "unread" by LibraryThing's users (as of today). Bold what you have read, italicize those you started but couldn't finish, and strike through what you couldn't stand. Add an asterisk to those you've read more than once. Underline those on your to-read list.

Books books grate big list of books )

I don't think there's anything in the 'not finished' pile that I actively hated, just plenty where my attention wandered elsewhere and the book didn't have enough spaceships/pirates/locked-room puzzles/lengthy digressions on economics/swordfights to draw me back in again.

I saw a mouse run across the living room so I chased after it and cornered it in the bathroom. I realised then it was actually much larger than a mouse and covered with soft black fur so I decided it was a mole who had somehow burrowed up to the first floor. It then dashed (are waking-world moles capable of dashing??) between my legs and into the kitchen where I found out it wasn't a mole at all cos its mum and dad were waiting by the sink and they were badgers! I'd apparently been unaware of a badger sett under my kitchen sink the whole time I'd been living there.

I woke up before I could phone Bill Oddie.

The animal in the dream didn't look like this. It didn't really look like a mole either.

You know the Bible 82%!

Wow! You are truly a student of the Bible! Some of the questions were difficult, but they didn't slow you down! You know the books, the characters, the events . . . Very impressive!

Happy New Year everyone! Poptimism was good times on toast despite feeling the effects of two prior days of ruin. Yay!s for all the DJs. I'm now attempting to restore full health by eating green things and watching Superman. At least one of those should work.

The canteen at werk is offering 'blood soup'.

On closer inspection, it turns out to be tomato and chili. And not even the right colour.

Also, just for today, red cabbage is considered 'devilish'.

I'm currently having AN ILL involving intermittent stomach pains and half the night spent in the loo. This may or may not be related to an otherwise quite nice Chinese meal consumed last night. This is the first time I've been MAN POORLY in quite some time and it is rub.

In happier news, BOSHTIMISM was stupidly good fun despite a) sweating twice my body weight and b) PUNKA not playing when I tried to put it on. Top marks to the Poptimorganisers!
