Not such grand designs

August 17th, 2014 · 1 Comment · Life

On the way home from having lunch in town on Friday we popped into B&Q for a new toilet seat and came out with more than we expected because they were getting rid of some firesat ridiculous prices. I think it was old stock of a discontinued product line. When we got home I decided […]

Yet another bass prodigy

September 5th, 2013 · Comments Off · Music

I was doing a bit of channel-surfing tonight and happened upon a programme on Sky Arts which has musicians playing live sessions in a studio. I think it is called something like the Basement Sessions. When I got to it it was halfway through a song by somebody I didn’t know and I might have […]

The Clarkson incident

December 1st, 2011 · Comments Off · Life

I may not like what Clarkson said yesterday, ”with his outrageously politically incorrect opinions which he has for money” but I can hardly complain about it – last year I absolutely cracked up when I saw Stewart Lee in Horsham and he did this routine.

The perils of the Bruce Willis vest in middle age

December 14th, 2010 · Comments Off · Music

Let me say straight off that I enjoy Elmer Food Beat enormously, and was overjoyed to see that they returned to the stage in recent years even if it was just to relive past glories rather then produce anything new.  All I will say is that perhaps the singer might have considered not wearing the […]

More Mala Vida

December 13th, 2010 · Comments Off · Music

Oh dear Piers

December 8th, 2010 · 2 Comments · Politics

I know it is old news, but only just heard about George Osborne allegedly getting voice coaching to sound less posh and weedy from a radio show on Saturday that I just listened to as a podcast.  If it is true (and the story is in the Daily Mail which immediately makes it a bit […]
