  • Bzangy Groink Playlist 18/11/09

    Ahh, the best new song tonight was easy – ‘The Comfort’ by Moss. Just a perfect, singalong indiepop song. If you’ve ever sung along with The Shins, The Format, Phoenix, The Pursuit Of Happiness or Sex Clark Five, I suggest you go and buy their new album. It’s ace! The best old song was ‘Sunday’…

  • Jizzing Cock Fame!

    Oh wow! Look at the above pic! As I’m typing this, the current top image result if you type ‘jizzing cock’ into Google is the little chappy I drew myself which takes you to this article. How amazing is that! Out of all the websites in the world, particularly the ones featuring far more porny…

  • Musical Moment 3: Bowling For Soup – ‘Girl All The Bad Guys Want’

    Late October, 2009. It’s a week until a particularly Unhappy Anniversary rolls around and I’m feeling bad. Not sad bad, weird bad. Unpredictable bad. Incongruity-of-affect bad. I think too much about some things, too little about others. Thoughts of the unchangeable past circle continuously in my head like vultures, shrieking and swooping and there doesn’t…

  • Friendship, Houseguests and Peanut Brittle

    Cookie Monster – he knows how to be happy. Lately, I’ve been re-reading Alain de Botton’s ‘Consolations of Philosophy.’ My life has, for the last year, been distinctly not-great. I remembered de Botton’s book providing me with some measure of calm previously so I thought I’d dip back into it. Also lately, I’ve started a…

    There wasn’t one best new track, there were three! All from the featured album by Vitalic, ‘Flashmob.’ I’m guessing it’s not inspired by Larry Niven but even so, it’s my fave electronic record of 2009 (so far!). It’s dancey, demented, dissonant deliciousness. The track ‘Flashmob’ itself sounds like Louis and Bebe Barron discovered the funk…

  • Autumn 2009

    There’s no season I particularly dislike but I do have a fondness for Autumn. I love the colours, the chill in the air, Bonfire Night, the noise of walking through piles of dry leaves on the pavement. Click the pic above to see some autumnal pics I’ve taken recently!

  • Mosh Halloween 2009

    Wow – what an excellent Halloween! I was going to stay in for reasons I won’t go into here but after talking it over with mates, I just thought, fuckit – go out. And I’m glad I did as I danced till my knees ached and saw some absolutely amazing costumes, the majority hand-made. I…
