I just threw a Christmas party.
It was lots of fun, and Jop and I spent the longest time at the end of the night trying to figure out what song was from what album. Anyway, in the mayhem I broke my iBook charger. It may or not be a while before I blog again. HOORAY for Christmas parties! Boo for internet death.

2009 really has just been one of those years.
I should probably save this for next week, but I’m ready to write it now. So here goes: It’s been the biggest rollercoaster of my life, so many amazing things have happened, yet they seem to be overshadowed by the bad. It feels like everything has changed. They kind of have and they kind of haven’t. This year I have come out of a long term relationship that I was unhappy in...

It refers to the Anti-Homosexuality Bill being proposed in Ugandan Parliament this Friday. Some of the comments are utterly disgusting. I think it’s well known that I’m a firm supporter of LGBT rights, and it never ceases to amaze me what bigoted, nasty and outright terrifying things people say. It’s not all bad, there are likeminded people out there that recognise that gay...
John Street is my hero. Okay?
I just had a supervisory meeting with him and we talked about Pavement. He said they are one of his favourite bands. He said he went to see them when they played at The Waterfront. CAN YOU BLOODY WELL BELIEVE IT?! We talked about Stockton and San Francisco and Steve Albini. He’s watched so much music he’s got tinnitus and can only hear out of one ear. He told me to get ear plugs. Oh,...

It’s about this absurd new way to ‘not have sex’ conceived (and I use that word knowingly) by sexually repressed chastity types. “This awesome new sex practice is commonly referred to as floating. What you do is (I’ll try to be as medically accurate as possible) is insert your penis in your girlfriend’s vagina and try to hold as still as possible. The lack of...

This is my rundown of the happpenings at ATP 2009. A splendid weekend filled with drums, queues, amazing beards and more drums. First things first, I had no fucking idea where we were going. I had imagined we were going somewhere along the south coast, somewhere roughly in the region of Brighton. WRONG. Minehead, not Maidstone, is practically in Wales. It’s by far the furthest west...

Tonight, I was told I look like Zooey Deschanel,
this was perhaps the 7th time this comparison has been made. I’m flattered of course, but it’s utterly bizarre because a.) I don’t see it, b.) I’m blonde (I know, Elf, whatever, but still). She just seems so different to me in a way that she is effortlessly cool. I’m highly interested to know. Can you explain it?
