well this blog has been steadily disappearing up it’s own arse for a while now so i have decided to pull the pin on it for the time being.

i will of course still be blogging away over at the grub’s site

and who knows, if and when the urge strikes me this here blog might re-incarnate in a different form or shape or something.

but for now, adios amigos


mr. smelly jr.

um, yeah, so i know nobody really needs to read a blog entry about my 7 week old son’s bowel movements but i couldn’t help but mentioning that i just changed his nappy and it smelt exactly like a McDonald’s hamburger.  no i am not tryin to make some comment about the quality of said hamburgers, just a straight forward observation.

’twas weird.

the good lady wife has a habit of giving nicknames to everything; the cat (bean), the husband (turnip, stink etc) and of course the baby.

during the pregnancy he was variously ‘the grub‘, ‘his royal highness pointy-arse‘ and a range of other things along the way.

and now he is out nothing has changed; ‘turnip jr‘ gets regular usage but my personal favourite is when trying to feed and he is distracted or just won’t latch on properly for some reason and she trots out… ‘ferret lips‘ – all in good fun of course.

as the good lady wife said the other day…

“What did we do before we had a baby?” 

“we are him”

15 second review

the new Angels Of Light album – meaty, at times playful, it has ‘bounce’.

this is Gira’s best work in a long time. while nothing will top my abiding all time appreciation of the “How I Loved You”album this is easily and clearly my second favourite Angels Of Light record.

a great listen!!

they shoot horses don’t they…?

so for three days i had an unexplained random shooting pain from my hip to my knee in my right leg.

and then it went away.

fucking weird how bodies do that.

[yeah, nothing else to say at the moment – more pointless blogging later]
