Blog Break

Hey 🙂 I had a bit of a break from the blog, as you may be aware. It’s mainly because i havnt had much happening and i’ve been spending time moving and seeing things, spending time on other projects. So what’s been happening?

Well right now its nearly 10:30 at night and watching horrible histories. I’m always learning. I may have lost the last podcast recording as this time i recorded it the way that makes no back up so i’m hoping to do something about that in the morning.

In good news i watched The Dark Knight Rises at the cinema. It was weird watching it after hearing about the america stuff and those poor people who went for a good time and ended up dieing. On the news they had a guy who took his kids into watch it… while in the UK its a 12A… why on earth would you let a child under 10 watch it! I found it to be a mind fuck and a kid would find it scary. As for the Cheltenham showing, maybe they should have cut the trailer for the gangster film where they burst through a cinema screen with machine guns. At this point i stated “That’s Ironic” is a deathly sarcastic manor rather loudly.  That good news changed to bad didn’t it? I’ll try and keep it chirpy. Just watch the film. You wont regret it.

I was at 2000 Trees festival last weekend which was fucking amazing. I managed to interview about between 8-12 bands (I didnt count properly). It was the muddyest vicinity i have ever stepped in. I’ve never seen so much mud. I cant get some of the mud stains from some of my clothes. If i could remove them though i would put them all over your face.

I had a Killing Dream last night. I had a weird situation before hand which may have been the reasons. Jess (Remember her?) and i had a chat last night and fell asleep thinking about her. The The dream involved us being contract killers and we were hunting people down. She took the order and we were outside this place (Which looked like my old school, Oakfields, which is long dead and gone) shooting Nazis and the Gestapo… it was still illegal though in the UK to shoot people… they were watching us. When i realised it i decided to abandon the second part of the shooting. I told Jess i thought it was a shit job, so we drove our Red Renalt to the nearest icecream place. I then awoke.

R.o.b.i.n.s p.i.s.s.e.d.o.f.f

so just got bk from the headphone disco and were talking about worms. the can shall not be opened. but its obvious robin is not a happy chappy.hopefully after the stress of the tent being brought down he will b ok. this swiftly moved on from talking to him about worms and cans to talking to my self then not at talking all because i wasnt listening to myself. on the plus side i saw the girl who lost her phone that i found – Racheal. and another who was dancing around with me (jo) who said she enjoyed my dancing hehe. any negative comments that may have been mentioned by anyone else were like water off a ducks back because i had a good time. i kinda was a bit down today but i had a sleep and woke up energetic. i was havning a down moment.
anyway i am gona try n sleep and try and be more bareable to my friend in the morning. just remember… its christmas. (it is cause the dj played 2 xmas songs. proof!)

wychwood. iphone funtimes yay!

ok so today has been pretty cool. i got up late and shud hav been at wychwood about 1 but got there at 2 ish as i was finding beds to use for the show. i got to the festival and met robin where we (mostly him) put the tent up. this was rather complicated because the wind was a fucking prick. after an hour and a half we completed the build and walked into town. we got back to camp and on the way to see punk innovators ‘the dammed’ which robin loved, i saw a big bubble and some muppet hats whick are fucking amazing. anyway we saw the dammed however my sensitive hearing became a problem and after moving once already i was feeling a bit crap so after. i needed an adult to confide in because i was feeling a bit down… but i dunno why.
i went to the radio studio to regain my hearing and spoke to sam and knocked around the studio til robin showed up. we saw some comedy and was the joined by jelmer.
we decided to call it a day but check out the headphone disco on the way back. we thought it seemed cool but didnt go in. i needed a piss so went to the toilet. jelmer asked if there was a light in there and said it was daft. i pondered over this thought while pissing and i saw a light – someones iphone!
it was ringing so answered it (someone called sarahi think) and said id found the phone. i met the person whos phone it was and she offered me a drink. robin at this point had just got out the bog and was un aware what happened and all of a sudden him and jelmer was being whisked off for a drink. (we saw tone station manager robbie at this point who said something but cant remember) and i managed to plug our show :p.  the girl whos phone it was took us into the headphone disco and got me robin and jelmer a drink. she was rly nice :-).
so we had the one and jelmer had to go. our show is at 10am so we were all gona go. but robin and i was havin fun with the music. i got a cider and carried on. then we had more drink and danced more till slowly we broke out into full on dancing. we saw te girl again and had a chat about it was adictive and carried on dancing. it got to 1.30 when we decided it was time to go… and danced about to house of pains jump around just as we left. the tent was still standing when we got back so got in.
what will happen tomorrow? hmmmm
