The Chemical Brothers’ concert film Don’t Think has been on my Amazon wish list for a while because all the reviews of it in magazines and newspapers said that it was awesome and the closest you will get to actually being at a show without actually being at a show. Tonight it was shown on […]

On Saturday I made a rare visit to London.Â I realised that I have not been in central London for a long time: the last few times I was in London it was only Hammersmith for Sunday night comedy.Â It must be more than a year since I took a train into Victoria. What finally […]
Always lots to do and see in the last few months of the year.Â This is a very selective sample (i.e. the ones I intend to go to).Â If anybody else is going to any of these I’ll see them there. October 22nd – Covered at the Queen’s Head, Horsham Covered are a seven-piece covers […]

This was the second date on their 20-date ‘Anderson-Wakeman Project 360′ tour, coming to a provincial town near you soon, and the ticket was a birthday present from Chrystal which […]

My copy of FranÃ§ais pour une nuit, the new Metallica concert DVD arrived today.Â I haven’t watched it totally from beginning to end, but I have dipped into it and watched about half of it.Â While it is a great DVD I don’t think it really does them justice, and it certainly did not bring […]

I would not normally go to three pubs in a month, but today I managed three pubs in the same day!Â First was the one over the road from work for a leaving do – there were a lot of them today as a result of our restructuring.Â Then in the evening it was across […]
After Christmas I treated myself to a couple of things on Amazon, notionally using some xmas money from Mum (happy birthday today BTW – 70 candles!).Â Unfortunately they had not quite arrived when the snow fell and so they didn’t get delivered here until today, when the postman brought a huge backlog of mail – […]
