"Here we all are sittin' in a rainbow
Gor blimey hello Mrs. Jones
How's old Bert's lumbago?
(He mustn't grumble)

(Tweedle dee bite)

I'll sing you a song with no words and no tune

(Tweedle dee bite)

To sing in the khazi while you suss out the moon - oh yeah"


Well I don't know what that was all about. I have been having really weird dreams lately. This one in particular more than normal. There I was in the film 'Waterloo road' which I haven't seen for years. I was in black and white as well. Me and John Mills were going up the road to this pub where they had his 'D-Day special' chicken (?) and he wanted to pay his final nine pence towards it. The bar maid went away and then came back to say "Sorry deary it's not here" To which I replied "I bet that cunt Grainger's got it." At which point Stewart Grainger comes out from the back of the bar from behind a curtain in a doorway jumps at me across the bar and I grab him by the belt buckle and the collar and threw him across the room to a table whereupon he lay upside down and dazed, then there was some other crap about the Italian army carrying these exaggerated machine guns and ammo boxes which were huge and made them look like those Warhammer figures that sad people in the Bournemouth shop play. The Italians were in colour for some reason then sadly my alarm came on and I woke up listening to the partially annoying Shaun Keaveny, still at least he's not the really annoying people on Radio 1. Some woman came in the shop the other day asking for a 'Wind up radio' I said "it's any of them that receive Chris Moyles Surely?" She didn't seem to understand. I also met my Gran and Grandad in a dream the other night in their old house up the road from here. I was so excited to see them and I was amazed to be able to feel the corduroy material of my Grandad's sleeve saying "ooh I can feel corduroy" I could see that my Gran seemed annoyed as I was too excited to listen to what they had to convey to me in the dream. I know I go on a lot about my dreams lately but they tend to be more interesting than the tediousness of day to day real life. The thing is we in our little electronic emporium are bored with the crap of day to day life within the company and tend to make our own amusement. With the merchandisers, decorators and builders all having made a slightly better sow's ear out of the silk purse it was we have very little to do lately other than serve the people who come in to the place. Most of the time we tend to spend staring out of the window at the plentiful amount of good looking women that go past. We tend to share I.E. "you have to blonde I'll have the brunette" that sort of thing. Well, it's better in one way than what we used to do. That was to send water rockets down the stairwell nearly decapitating ex members of staff and hitting aerosol air fresheners with hammers thereby turning them into lavender fragranced exocet missiles, (mentioning no ex members of staff called Ben Dawson lately of Guildford). I suppose it keeps us all of the streets and in our lovely grey and puss green shop. I can honestly say that if there was another job I would be off quicker than the air freshener rocket, which was fast, I hardly had time to dodge out the way as I was laughing so much. Anyway enough nostalgia for better times here's the music. Links are as ever in the comments.

Tonight's posts are Prince Buster - The Outlaw, The Smiths - Louder than Bombs and finally The Clash - London Calling/Vanilla Tapes/The Last Testament (The Making Of London Calling)DVD. Enjoy!

No, It's just when you archive it into either zip or rar files just where it says 'Split volumes into bytes' or something I always split it into 100meg part by typing in 100m and it'll automatically do it for you. No problem for The Clash.
