From The Diary of a Young Girl

"We're all alive, but we don't know why or what for; we're all searching for happiness; we're all leading lives that are different and yet the same."

The Human Race

"The human race is the most stupid and unfair kind of race. A lot of the runners don't even get decent sneakers or clean drinking water.

Some runners are born with a massive head start, every possible help along the way and still the referees seem to be on their side.

It's not surprising a lot of people have given up compeating altogether and gone to sit in the grandstand, eat junk and shout abuse.

What the human race needs is a lot more streakers."

Some Things Deserve Promotion

I've been meaning to post something for ages but keep not doing so. In an attempt to do just that I'm going to give some promotion to a couple musical acts that need more attention.

First up is Steam Powered Giraffe which was something I was introduced to last year. In particular I'm fond of their song "Honeybee" which I've posted the video for below. It's a fantastic song with a fantastic video. Good luck getting it out of your head.

Next up is a group called Grape Digging Sharon Fruits. I've been listening to them for a few years now. They are one of David Firth's myriad projects. One of my favourite songs is Bloody Nose from the 2010 release Grappling Head Songs.

If you like that you can download all their work for free from their official site (link).

There, I've posted something. Perhaps I can get some motivation together and post more often than last year (twice).

I'm Not Dead

I just don't have anything to say to the general public.

For All Those Born In The 70s & 80s

"We are the last generation that learnt to play in the street. We are the first who’ve played video games, see cartoons in color and went to amusement parks. We were the last to record songs of the radio on cassettes and we are the pioneers of walkmans and chartrooms…We learned how to program the VCR before anyone else, play with Atari, Super… Nintendo and believed that the Internet would be a free world all on a 56Kbit modem. Traveled in cars without seat belts or air-bags and lived without cell phones. Rode our bicycles down the roads without breaks. We never had phones but still kept in touch. We did not have Playstations, 99 television stations, flat screen’s, surrounds sound, mp3s, iPods, iPhone, iPads, touch tablets and broadband……….

But nevertheless, we had a GREAT Time!"
