Thursday

terminated conversation of the week:

uncle alan: are you into football at all, david?

me: no.

uncle alan: ...

me: .,...

uncle alan:

--------------------------------------
the wedding was great. *lovely*. even Tim's [drunken] speech {that went on too long (and involved calling Michelle's family 'anal')} was terribly moving. but all the crying was a bit rediculous. we had a klezma band! and they rocked so hard. and they were all lovely girls... *sigh*. the party went on as long as it could.

then this week involved watching the princess bride with rachel at last [though we'll never finish Willow 87(]. best film ever. every other line is a fantastic quote. i been becoming dangerously close to eating three veggie burgers in as many days (steered towards falafel instead today), and sorting my life out, which i haven't actually done. +never mind, eh?+ won't take long to pack up and do my share of the house. all it needs is a little concentration

what happened to Departure Lounge? went along with Laurenec and Aimee, and it was just a bunch of people watching football. that doesn't seem very Japanese to me! we went to fringe bar instead at that point, Robin boy turned up and they all talked about Glastonbury. wankers.
what else...
bought some smokes and a bottle of whiskey, with the intention of being a proper rock star and recording a whole album while doing all of the stuff i needed to. what did i achicheve? one song. one lousy song with a crap vocal and two guitar lines. rubbish! if anyone wants a bottle of whiskey (a blend of islays, diluted of course) and the very best part of a pack of amber leaf (which i've realised i hate) then please phone me. phone me anyway, it'd be nice to hear from you.

edit: this week's Onion is right on target. very good read indeed.

edit 2: i got this from ateaseweb.com:
FHM magazine surveyed 100,000 people online for their best album album of the past decade. Radiohead's OK Computer came in 6th. Here's the full list:

1 Red Hot Chili Peppers - Californication
2 Oasis - (What`s the Story) Morning Glory
3 Eminem - The Marshall Mathers LP
4 U2- All that You Can`t Leave Behind
5 Coldplay - A Rush of Blood to the Head
6 Radiohead - OK Computer
7 Coldplay - Parachutes
8 Prodigy - Fat of the Land
9 Blur - Parklife
10 The Verve- Urban Hymns

U2 were also voted the best band of the past decade in the survey by FHM magazine, followed by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Oasis and Coldplay.

The Matrix (1999), starring Keanu Reeves, was voted the best film of the decade, followed by the last in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Return of the King, Quentin Tarantino`s Pulp Fiction (1994), The Shawshank Redemption (1994) and Fight Club (1999).

FHM surveyed 100,000 people online.
so now you no, you meet someone, and they talk at you about nothing so much as the matrix, californication, and Ubleeding2, you need not talk to them any longer (so it doesn't really tell us anything, then).

interesting that Fight Club - possibly the most anti-FHM film i can think of (except punchdrunk love) rates in there. do people just like the fighting? like the quote "everyone copies Gang of Four's guitar sound, but no-one copies their politics." can't remember who said it though.
