Lounging in '09

Hello! I'm DJing at the Hangover Lounge this Sunday along with fellow guest Jon Clay and regulars Ben & Jerv. There will be lovely music, boardgames, Sunday papers and BEER (and probably the usual 2for1 cocktail business) which all adds up to a exceedingly pleasant afternoon. Bring your friends and your aching heads.

This whole system is outta line!

This Strong Bad Flash game is brilliant. While Videlectrix continue to make good on their commitment to good graphics, much care has gone into replicating the look and feel of old Sierra games - right down to some slightly awkward character movement. Also, there's only one room so you can finish it during lunchtime.

That's why it tastes beastly

I just bought a coffee at work where we pay for everything with magick electric money stored on our ID cards. The balance now remaining on my card is SIX POUNDS AND SIXTY-SIX PEE.

Cooking dilemmas - SOLVED

I reckon I can find space in my kitchen for one of these if I move out the fridge and the cooker (I won't need them anymore). The only problem is where to put the Red Bull machine.

Remember the elephant and how brilliant that was? Artichoke's new thing in LiverpoolcositistheCapitalofCulture looks similarly striking but doesn't half give me the creeps. I hope there's a gigantic glass-and-bit-of-cardboard involved somewhere.

Food Meme

From [ profile] atommickbrane . Everything I've eaten is in bold. Anything I'd really like to try is in italics but I don't think there's anything on the list I'd completely shun.
I'll try anything once )

Hungover Loungin'

I'll be playing some records at top weekly hangout THE HANGOVER LOUNGE this Sunday afternoon. Why not pop along and enjoy a liquid Sunday lunch in the company of some excellent music played at volumes that won't hurt yr aching head. Also, the cocktails are 2 for 1.

The Salmon & Compass
58 Penton St (corner of Chapel Market nr Angel Tube)
Sunday 1-7pm

A soft comedown club for hard drinkers, The Hangover Lounge is the place to eat Sunday lunch, drink hair of the dog, meet like-minded souls, read the papers and make idle chit chat all to some soothing sounds. That might mean country rock or deep soul or psychedelia or soft pop or lovers rock, or anything else which sounds great and will make your head feel so much the better.

"My instructor was Mr. Langley and he taught me to sing a song..."

Thanks to the Today programme, I was woken up by the music clip in this story. It's the most terrifying thing I've ever heard first thing in the morning.

Over here, doing The Robot

About a billion years ago, [ profile] worldofagwu tagged me with this here meme:

"List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now, shaping your spring. Post these instructions in your LJ along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they're listening to."

Here we go then... )
