Engineering Work at Clapham Junction

Posted on 31 October 2004 in London, Transport (No comments yet - be the first!)

Engineering work is a necessary evil and I’ll never begrudge the fact it has to happen - as long as the railway companies handle it properly.

John Peel

There’s not exactly anything I can say about John Peel that hasn’t already been said umpteen million times by friends and other fans of his worldwide. But say a few things I will because the death of John Peel - well it’s like losing an old friend.

My Sanyo VCR - probably about three years old if that - has recently started chewing up tapes for Britain. Which is, to be blunt, shit. Three years old and its knackered.

Flashmob - The Opera

Posted on 6 October 2004 in Music, TV Programmes, Television (No comments yet - be the first!)

Okay I’ll be honest. When it comes to opera… well. And as for flashmobbing… well the phrase ‘new media wanker’ is what usually springs to mind.. So you can perhaps see why something called ‘Flashmob - The Opera’, well… might not really work in my mind…

Well I guess Chicken Soup can’t solve every problem which is why I spent most of yesterday and part of today, in bed with flu.
