"Papers in the morning, bowler hat on head. Walking to the bus stop, He's longing for his bed."

I've decided for Christmas next year that I want the above present, blow job vouchers. I'm hoping that boots accept them as there's a nice looking woman in there. Not that that would mean she'd want me but there you go. Still even with this comment I continue to remain positive in regards to the new year (until it proves otherwise that is). But then that's the way life goes isn't it? There you are sailing along without a care in the world happy as a pig in shit when all of a sudden bang life's little U-boat decides to torpedo the good ship venus. Oh well. I'm hoping that there's such a thing as karma after all, as my landlord (ex hippy) says "What goes around comes around." Let's hope so, not out of any malice or vengeance or anything like that (although I would laugh like a drain), but I would just like a break from time to time.
Still remaining on the positive side I've managed to spend all this free time I have from looking for work to good use by converting my old VHS tapes to dvd via lots of swearing and cables. First to be converted was Madstock and I'm pretty pleased with the results considering I've had the tape for 14 years. That will be put up before long on my wonderful and reasonably poplular blog. Still at least it makes change from playing Star Wars Lego. My thumb is killing me. Why don't they invent a game controller that doesn't make you feel deformed in the hands after an hour of playing? I've also converted 'In Bed With Carter USM' and 'Big Audio Dynamite greatest hits' which will all be put up as soon as possible.

In the meantime here's a Trojan Ska Rarities Boxset wot I bought, now go away whilst I watch The Life Of Brian. "He's not the messiah he's a very naughty boy".

"If you must write prose and poems The word you use should be your own Don't plagiarise or take "on loan" There's always someone, somewhere With a big nose, who knows And trips you up and laughs When you fall."

So here it is Merry Xmas everybody's having fun etc etc. Well not everyone is having fun, I know I'm one of them. But I refuse to go all "Eeyore" as my landlord says. So I'll look forward to 2007, it'll be the twentieth anniversary of 1987 you know? 1987 happened right at the correct moment for me between 1986 and 1988, the perfect time (apart from the Conservative 'junta' that is. It was my favourite Christmas as we had the biggest laugh by organising a treasure hunt involving 42 cryptic clues in envelopes placed all over the 6 bedroom three floor house only find the present under the tree an hour later. Oh how we laughed. Can you guess the author of this scheme?

Anyway we had a slightly traditional Christmas which involves several members of the household locking themselves in a spare room until the children disappear having left in thier wake the remnants of wrapping paper, discarded boxes, broken toys, blood, ripped carpet, smnashed windows and broken furniture. Also sitting bloated from my big servings of traditional Christmas dinner and chocolate traditional biscuits, sweets etc. Then we traditionally ignored HM Queen's waffling old traditional bollocks, in my case I was busy in a Lego Galaxy Far Far Away ... spending several traditional bloated hours sat there blasting away at evil plastic bricks. Iwould like to have gotten the things I asked for but then how to you wrap up Winona Ryder giving me a blow job? Later I unlocked the door (once the noise had subsided from the kids disappearance and the smoke had cleared), and left my darkened room with sore wrist and strained eyesight ... it was like my teenage years all over again.

If I'd have had my way it would have been an untraditional Christmas with no songs relating to noel and a lunch of beans on toast with an egg on top. Although I did like the bit where people kept giving me stuff ... even the socks. So I'd have kept that bit. Next year I'm going to ask for money as it seemed everyone ignored my wishlist. Maybe they all think I'm some sort of Christmas nay sayer or something? I don't know why ... although maybe my window had something to do with it? My world famous window to be precise. Although it had the desired effect by making people laugh (including Craig Charles). Still the new year should be better than the last one (I hope). Though time will tell. I'm beginning to get over all the 'Panto' buisiness at my ex job. Although I dreamt of 'the Knees' the other night see even my brain's against me.

Tonight's music is from Morrissey and The Smiths in fact all the stuff I bought myself because I knew others wouldn't. I'll post a Jam cd too.

Posting delayed due to being given Star Wars Lego on the PS2 for Christmas.
Normal service to be resumed shortly (because I completed it in one sitting and have a sore thumb from pounding the 'X' button).
Sad News on Christmas Day
James Brown
Brown won a lifetime achievement award at the Grammys in 1992
Original Source The BBC

Soul star James Brown dies at 73
Singer James Brown, known as the "Godfather of Soul", has died at the age of 73, his agent has said.

He had been admitted to hospital in Atlanta to be treated for pneumonia but died at 0145 local time (0645 GMT), said Frank Copsidas.

The star was famous for hits including I Got You (I Feel Good), Papa's Got a Brand New Bag and Living in America.

The cause of Brown's death remained unclear at this stage, Mr Copsidas told the Associated Press.

Gospel roots

Brown was born in 1933 in South Carolina.

He joined a gospel group as a young man after his release from jail for trying to steal a car.

He had his first hit on the US rhythm and blues chart, Please Please Please, in 1956.

Brown had 94 hits on Billboard's mainstream Hot 100 in the US, according to his official website, and by the end of his career, he had a total repertoire of 800 songs.

However, he achieved only one top 10 single in the UK.

This was Living in America, from the soundtrack of the Sylvester Stallone film Rocky IV, which reached number five in 1986.

He was credited with spreading the popularity of funk around the world, influencing a new generation of black music which spawned rap and hip-hop.

Brown appeared in London in October as part of the BBC's Electric Proms line-up.

And last month he played at a ceremony which saw his induction into the UK Music Hall of Fame.

"You scumbag you maggot, you cheap lousy faggot merry Christmas my arse I pray it's our last."
This is the window to my flat.

As it's Christmas and I don't feel very Christmassy myself I thought I'd spread a few presents around for you namely several albums by the best band ever we have Please Please Me, A Hard Day's Night, Abbey Road, Let It Be (original one), Magical Mystery Tour, Revolver, Rubber Soul, With The Beatles, Yellow Submarine, Past Masters 1 & 2, 'The White Album', A Paul Weller giveaway live best Of From The Sunday Express, I also included three of my favourite soundtracks from movies I've watched lately. Those being The Italian Job, Amelie by Yann Tiersen, and Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind. That should keep you going for a bit.Well the review of the year so far as is traditional at this time of year. It started as they all do with me in a crap job, still in debt but working for the third year running towards to goal it turns out wasn't an option but just a joke by some of my friends. The summer I missed due to being inside a shop all day. I spend all year working hard to be rewarded with a £1.99 Cadbury's selection box (no joke) I gave it away. Soon after it all came to a head and I left (see panto post). The only real high points being that I found out who the real friends were and I think they'll remain for a few years as they truly are nice people (especially those that texted, emailed and rung me to give support etc, thanks everyone). Also the main high point was meeting my Nephew again and my Niece for the first time who is gorgeous and will no doubt worry her mum silly when she's old enough for boys. See? Something positive there, I hated Norfolk but I looked for the diamond in the dogshit and found it, who says this ain't a positive site? I'm hoping that in the next few months I'll have sorted things out and found a new job which I will like for a while then get all bored etc. I'm predicting that I won't win the lottery for the 13th successive year despite the fact that I'm the only one I know who wouldn't buy a gold plated helicopter and a small island. I shall endeavour to carry on with this blog and even though what can surely be the last dissapointment this side of opening my presents I reached 10,000 Rapidshare points, I was hoping for a set of crystal wine glasses or a decanter at least maybe even a t shirt but no, I get to spend it on a extension to my account for a month which costs me £6.86 each month. What happened to getting good stuff? I'm hoping to win the Nintendo Wii from the Independent newspaper but I probably won't. I just wanted to be like all those people I saw in the paper who have destroyed several household items by letting go of the controller which seems to be attached to the wrist by the flimsiest piece of cord I have ever seen. I think it was next to the worst design flaw ever on the console .. next to it being called the Wii (pronounced wee) It must have been designed for the smaller Japanese person not the beefy British council estate dweller who let's face it is no stranger to a chip supper/few pints and therefore will just go nuts by swinging the damn thing around as if there future purchases of Argos jewellry depended on it. Sending the controller flying through the air and into the dried out concrete fish pond with the kids tricycle upturned within via the patio windows.
My new years resolution is to not be so judgemental. Enjoy and see you later.

"Well, I stand up next to a mountain and I chop it down with the edge of my hand, Well I pick up all the pieces and make an island might even raise a little sand, yeah."

I just heard a report on BBC6 Music that several hundred thousand counterfeit condoms have been seized by the HM Customs but several thousand have already gone on sale in Essex. I bet there's a few hundred girls in white stillettoes sweating it at the moment. At least Friday nights will be quite for a few weeks. Well I'm enjoying the peace and quiet at the moment what with being unemployed and all I just wish it was warmer . I've yet to start watching Trisha though although someone has suggested to me that I'd be a guest after all recent events. My great big little sister would be the irate family member who wants to be fighting all the time. Funny how she looks after me I thought it should've been the other way around? Oh well less work for me. You can take the girl out of the council estate etc...
Anyway I'm not planning on being a layabout for too long and already I have two job applications one was handed to me unexpectedly. So I hold out high hopes for that one. (They must be desperate).

Tonight's music is a Ska compilation 'Ska Anthems' which features a load of the original sixties ska leg ends and an album I can't get enough of at the moment St Elsewhere by Gnarls Barkley which is worth a download of. Enjoy.

"Tell me tell me is life just a playground Think you're the real deal honey And someone'll always look out for you But wake up baby You're so totally deluded You'll end up old and lonely If you don't get a bullet in your head."
It's pantomime Season Kids
Once upon a time in a land not so far away there once was a man who fell in love with a beautiful woman. Her hair was like the golden fields in august before the harvest time and her skin was the colour of lightly toasted almonds (hey it's dinnertime and I'm hungry) and her smile lit up the darkness of the man's empty life . Now being a shy man this person decided not to tell the woman how he felt out of the misguided notion that he had no chance anyway and owed loads of money to loads of people and wished to treat the lady to more than a quick trip to the chip shop and a bottle of cherryade. (What can I say I'm Buttons). Working alongside were two trusted friends (Ugly Sisters), whom the man decided to let in on this notion that he was in love with the beautiful woman. These friends muttered to themselves "what a good joke this would make". So from that day onwards they dedicated themselves to the pursuit of winding the beautiful woman up with tales of all the man had said of her beauty and how much he loved her from afar although in his heart he knew she would never be his and had said nothing more than 'good morning' or 'you looked nice at the christmas party'.
This went on for ages and ages and before long the man found a note deriding the fact that the beautiful woman had found another written by the trusted friend with the awful breath. This broke the man's heart, not just for the fact that she would never be his after all but for the reason that the friend with the dog's breath didn't have the balls to own up or say sorry for the note like an adult. The man with the broken heart died from that day onwards.
Still the joke wasn't finished for the ugly sisters as they continued to wind the beautiful woman up until she felt the need to complain to the kings. The man was summoned to the palace whereupon he was made to feel he was unwanted. So with a heavy heart and feeling lower than he'd ever done before, the man left. Leaving behind his other 'better' friends and others' well wishes and vowed to enjoy christmas and that if he saw the ugly sisters in the street they'd better cross the road.
And everyone else lived happily ever after.

"I remember when, I remember, I remember when I lost my mind There was something so pleasant about that place. Even your emotions had an echo, and so much space And when you're out there, without care, yeah, I was out of touch. But it wasn't because I didn't know enough I just knew too much" Okay here's the deal. I'm in a dark place at the moment, what Winston Churchill used to refer to as his 'black dog', but I appreciate the comments and the fact that I've had quite a few hits on the site. So I'll keep it going as far as the uploads are concerened but I really don't have it in me to laugh at the moment so bear with me. My future is uncertain as to whether I stay in my job and/or company let alone this town. I'll try to keep my chin up and like I say I'll continue with the music as that is what I set this blog up for. If you really must know why I'm like this then read the previous entries. I know it's self centred etc and others have had a worse year but the full story will be posted when I leave the current store.

Hasta luego!!!

"Guess who's back, back again Shady's back, tell a friend Guess who's back, guess who's back, guess who's back, guess who's back, guess who's back, guess who's back, guess who's back...Duh da Da um, da um, da um, da um, da um, da um, da um, Duh da Da um, da um, da um, da um, da um, da um, da um."
Firstly let me apologise for the delay in writing the update even though I've been back from the dark and mysterious wilds of Norfolk since last Tuesday. But and I'm mentioning no me's here but some idiot bought himself Lego Star Wars 2 out of my money whilst in Toys R Us with my nephew. So I've been pootling around the Lego version of a galaxy far, far away... But now I've come back to the present day so here we are (reaches for notes).

On the first evening I was there my sister took me to the chippy I used to frequent as a young tearaway lad back in the dark ages. "How long has it been since you had one of these burgers?" she asked "20 years. Can I go home now?" I replied. I ordered the burger with the bbq beans, chips and garlic bread. Idiot, the bbq beans for some reason are deemed a topping for a burger in the backwaters and the burger itself was around about 7" in diameter. As I sat there barely concious and with distended stomach my wonderful sister decided to further torture me with 'I'm a celebrity get me out of here'. The only bits I paid attention to were the Myleene Klass bikini shots. Am currently building shrine in cupboard.

Day two despite the previous night's meal leaving my body stretched and my arse sore from shitting the equvalent of a small car we ventured into Cromer. A place so desolate and uninteresting that it now has as many 99p stores as the entire south of England put together. Slight exaggeration but you get the picture. "You need any cheap Eastern European branded cleaning products then look no further than the gem of the North Norfolk coast" the adverts should say. incidentally it's named the 'Gem of the North Norfolk coast' because it should be buried like treasure. I swear the temperature dropped 2 degrees as we passed the town sign. Anyway the main point was to buy the kids some presents which we did from the small Woolworths available. After the chips from the chippy down past the old job center (a place I knew all too well thanks) we escaped back to an afternoon of Spongebob Squarepants and bloody Peppa Pig. Until the kids went around their father's for the evening. The night's entertainment on offer was the sight of my innebriated sister and her friends murdering 'I will survive' etc on the karaoke machine. Being a fan of music I enjoyed myself with a chinese take away and the dukes of hazard reruns on the satellite tv instead. I did however have a bit of trouble sleeping the first couple of nights there due to it being so dark and quiet. Usually I fall asleep to the sound of a siren or two, some loud mouth kids walking past and the people opposite slamming car doors at all hours of the night and day. Also this non artificial lighting they have out in the country just really fucks you up. I should have taken a sound effects cd with me.

Sunday was a day of R&R except for my stomach as my sister did the biggest Sunday roast you'd ever seen. "I do like my roasts on a sunday" she stated. "No shit" I thought as I contemplated another morning of flushing the toilet. Taking Full advantage of an incapacitated Uncle, my Niece (2 and a half years old), god bless her, decided now was the ultimate time for piling every single toy ever owned by a small child in the entire civilisation of man on top of me. Whilst this was going on my Nephew (7 yrs old) was bouncing around like Tigger on speed waving the Power Rangers sword around like a shoalin monk who's missed a month of training and wants to catch up in an afternoon ... maybe he hadn't taken his medication like he swore he had? It was my own fault for bringing it up to him I suppose? Still full from Sunday lunch and still finding toy cars in the folds of my clothes my lil' sis decided to insist on getting a sunday tea time treat of another Chinese take away. I picture myself having to buy an extra seat on the train home. After more spongebob on the seemingly 24 hour spongebob channel and followed by I'm a shlebrity and Corrie (I suddenly miss home, well more precisely my tv which never gets turned to ITV ... EVER!!!!).

Monday the big day, our trip to Naaaaaaaaaarch, or as the rest of the country calls it, Norwich. Extra medication for the Nephew and strap the arms of my seemingly kleptomaniac Neice into the pushchair and away we go. Trundling through the countryside in my sisters' Mondeo I keep getting reminded of old songs I think its because I always listened to the music, (rather than the parents), when travelling anywhere, hence 'Hand in Glove' always reminds me of the stretch of road between Knapton and Mundesley with a lap warmed by our Chinese meal in 1983. Anyway Norwich is smaller and more confusing than when I left it 10 years ago as it now has several new shopping areas and new and shiny malls everywhere. I was a little agrieved as I had absolutely now prospects of work when I lived up there then and I could have applied for at least twenty whilst on a visit to the family. But hey ho then I wouldn't have had the discovery of electricity, inside toilets and/or literacy. So after an afternoon of trying to dissuade the Nephew from wanting certain things without giving the game away that Santa has already bought that and lost the reciept we head home knackered and slightly emptier in the wallet.

I begun my journey on the Tuesday by playing with my new phone which was my sister's Xmas pressie to me. I put some credit on it and looked about for the crowds with the burning torches and pitchforks lest they should have discovered that I tried to introduce the kids to the world of joined up writing and be burned at the stake for such. Thankfully they were not able to catch me. On reaching London I was able to enjoy the sweet sweet music of the Police sirens, crowds and pnuematic drills. I boarded the train home and found that the longest part was the last three stations. Maybe the batteries were running low or maybe the driver was pissing with me? But he seemed to be going 5 miles an hour for a veeeerrrrry long time. On reaching home I told my mate all about the holiday and realised mid sentence that that was the first time I'd sworn all weekend. I ran the bath taps just to marvel at being back in the twenty first century.

Tonight's music is the free cd from the Daily Mail of Madness from last weekend. Edited and expunged of all those extra tracks they pad these things out with. Plus I've upped the two albums by Suggs (The Lone Ranger & The Three Pyramids Club) Plus The I'm only Sleeping CD Single. That will keep you happy for a few minutes and if I canb stay out of a galaxy far far away I'll post again in a few days time. TTFN.
