from dusk til dawn

man, i'm busy at the moment. for those of you who regularly read (rumour has it) i'm not yet pushing up daisies or anything - just my social calendar seems to have exploded and i'm never in anymore.

it's quite nice.

my bank account disagrees.

ghost rider

for a long time now, i've wondered how brian harvey managed to run himself over with his own car. perhaps this video will help us understand.

if no-one has yet coined the phrase "splash mob" for the events today in hyde park, let it be forever known that i invented it.

thanks to facebook, today a dry(?)run of next years BIGGEST EVER WATER FIGHT! started at 1300hrs. i was there, and i looked like this:

it was going to be much bigger, but expected bad weather and a security alert got it canceled. still, about 100 people turned up. if i canceled something and a hundred people still turned up i'd be quite impressed. it was brilliant.

i love london. roll on next year when maybe all of the 100,000 people that said they would come won't be put off by a bit of rain and some bombs.

singin' in the rain

i don't listen to the radio. generally it's rubbish and plays the same 10 tracks over and over again interspersed with some gobby lout and his-her mates jabbering on about big brother and eastenders. i tire of that very quickly.

if only we could bring back john peel.

today i found out that the number one song is an urban song about an umbrella. i looked it up on youtube to find that its another meaningless rap meets nonsensical droning songstress computer generated song about letting a boy join her under her um-BER-ella ella ella ella.

there's so much awesome music out there, how is this number one?!

the best things in life are free

last night i spent the evening with a colombian girl with the energy of a stick of dynamite filled with beans, a polish goth and a mongolian girl who is scared of the countryside, a russian girl who had a stroke in her early twenties, a retired gay methodist minister and sunni muslim security guard who got so hysterical after falling in love with a blond girl on the other side of the pub, we had to leave.

i love london.

sometimes the random hand you're dealt is unbeatable.

black diamond

oh yeah, the other thing i did yesterday was buy a car. this little beauty:

ooh, mr. strong

except "little" really is the wrong word. it's a big-mclarge-huge of a car. possibly too big, but look at it! it rocks. and hopefully keeps rolling as well. for a long time.

it is a bit old, but it looks kick-ass so i guess i just said "i'll have it" and handed over a wad of cash. i'll ignore the fact that it's a vauxhall. it's a 'diamond' (?) edition 4x4 with a limited paint job in pearlescant black that changes colour depending on the angle you look at it and the sun. it's got a 2.2 litre engine and a tow-bar and power steering and leather seats and a little bit of dog hair in the boot and an mp3 stereo and alloy wheels and electric windows.

on my very short street there is now weirdly 4 big black jeeps. mine, a cherokee, a range rover sport and a hummer. mine is the second biggest and it's the best colour. i feel i rule enough.
