  1. I also saw the Pixies last Friday at the Ally Pally. Considering they're probably my favourite ever band and it was the first time I had seen them, probably didn't love it as much as I should have (or as much as the others I went with did). Decent set list, they played well, but just missed something. Still, one off the bucket list. BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, WE COMING FOR YOU. Craig Finn in Hackney next month. Can't wait, I Need a New War is my favourite album of the year.
  2. Devastated to hear that Charles Bukowski has died again. I've only just got over his first death in the mid 90's.

    Sad Satan

    Let's not go overboard here.
  4. Had my first pub night out since moving at the weekend and spent most of it drinking a glorious bitter called Smuggler by Rebellion Beer Co. One of the best things about it heading towards Autumn is that it's brown beer season again.
  5. The worst thing about my commute is not the overpriced tickets or packed trains, it's the fact that this is what I have to look at when I get off the tube:
  6. News travelled slowly back in those days.
  7. And that really did feel like it went on for fucking years. I know it was a HIGNYF/Private Eye style joke, but genuinely, The Express never seemed to go a month without a Diana front page for about a decade after the event. Edit: they've had two stories on her in the last two days!
  8. What historical events do you vividly remember and why? Ridiculously, it's 18 years since the September 11th attacks. I heard about it when I was on a school trip to the Isle of White and the teachers gathered us all around to explain what was happening in justifiably somber tones, somewhat marred afterwards when they gave a bollocking to Sam Myatt for attempting to teach the year 4's a lewd and probably racist song about a gigolo called 'Jonny Banana'. I also remember where I was when I heard Princess Diana died. I was staying with my Dad that weekend and he was setting up a game of Monopoly when he put teletext on and went: 'Oh, Diana's dead. Do you want to be the top hat?" before immediately switching over to Live and Kicking. Apathy for the royal family evidently fell close to the tree, as my only other memory of her death was throwing a wobbler because the BBC cancelled Peter Rabbit in order to show her funeral. So yeah, things like 9/11, the Berlin Wall, Archduke Franz Ferdinand being killed @Thunderplex

    Baconator. Get a Baconator. You know that episode of the Simpsons where Homer tests how greasy things are by wiping them against surfaces? You could cut through a breeze-block with a Baconator.

    In-depth analysis of Wilko own brand product names. This is why the internet can be a force for good.
  11. I immediately read this in the voices of Adrian Lewis and his waiter from Athletico Mince.
  12. Walking around during my lunch break earlier and wish I knew the context of the following: "Baby, I've got to go back to the office. I'm broken, I've been sitting on the toilet for two hours. Please don't do this to me "
  13. Steve Smith's fear of Big Craig's 78mph thunderbolts after being bowled by him at Adelaide I reckon.

    Chippy Tea

    That's the bollocks right there. Love that the fish looks like a massive battered oven glove too.
