Life is like an amusement park

I don't know much about Bill Hicks. What I do know is that he sounds amazing venting over a Sugur Ros track. My friend Tom Fish pointed this out to me and I have been enjoying it since. Watch out for Ron Paul - L A D.

Also, how ridiculously amazing is the new series of The Thick of It?!!?

Check out some behind the scenes shit. it's awesome (thanks charles).

Music at the moment:

Born Ruffians album
The National - Boxer
Fugazi - 13 Songs
Fucked Up - Chemistry of Common Life
Noah and The Whale - FIrst Days of Spring
The new Yeasayer
These New Puritans - We Want War. I am so excited about this album it's unreal.

Just going through some of the gems on

They never EVER let us down...





I could go on...


This is the new video from everyones favourite LA band No Age. I literally love these guys, I saw them the other day and they did my bloody ears in.

This is the kind of video that I would like to be able to just knock out nonchalantly. If Chris ever returns my charger....

How to shoot friends and interrogate people...

Barry on top form again.

Reminds me of the awesome speech he made before the election...

Upon Viewing Bruegel’s ‘Landscape With the Fall of Icarus’

This is why I love Titus Andronicus.

I Heart College?

I know I'm a bit late on this, but Asher Roth seems to be taking the world by storm somewhat. His song 'I Love College' is literally everywhere and I have some qualms about it. Mainly, that it portrays such a cringe-makingly simple and stereotypical representation of "college". I'll just give you a few gems of his:

"That party last night was awfully crazy I wish we taped it
I danced my ass off and had this one girl completely naked
Drink my beer and smoke my weed but my good friends is all I need
Pass out at 3, wake up at 10, go out to eat then do it again"

and another

"Man, I love college, ay!
And I love drinking, ay!
I love women, ay!
Man, I love college"

Towards the end of the song he starts chanting "freshman", "keg stand" and "do something crazy" (nothing like pre-empted mentalness)

Now I know that to pull apart lyrics is all to easy, particularly with mainstream music, but some of this does genuinely make me feel a little bit ill... added to which the video takes this fromage to the next level... CANT EMBED IT AS I CANT FIND IT


despite all this, I can't help but like the song. It's horribly catchy, and ignoring the endless cliche, is quite enjoyable.

I'm not too sure what the purpose of this post was, maybe to vent. I'm kind of annoyed with myself that I like it I suppose. It's weird that there can be so much going against a song yet it's still likeable

Chimpanzee riding on a segway.

My friend Adam loves monkeys and segways, so this is pretty much heaven for him...

I'm pretty sure chimpanzees aren't monkeys though.

Facebook deleted my account last night. The c-words.

Basically, I was adding people for my clubnight and suddenly Facebook just cuts out. I've lost all my photos, friends, threads - it's not the end of the world but it is a fairly sizeable annoyance.

You forget how much you rely on it when you use it so absent-mindedly the whole time and so I think it could be a good thing in the end. Stop looking at photos of people I don't even know, and just reduce the general scale of "life-wastage"

Anyway, now for a picture of some mice playing brass.

Got to love Stumble.
