"She's going out tonight but drinking just champagne
And she has been checking nearly all the men
She's playing her game and you can hear them say

She is looking good, for beauty we will pay"

I'm quite chuffed to say the least, "why?" I hear you not ask because you don't care? Well I'll tell you anyway. It was recently pay day, a reason in itself to be happy for day at least, but also because I'd changed my phone number so no more 'missed calls' from some investment company or spam texts from someone wanting me to do the Irish lottery. But I'd managed to finally pay off my last debts (yay I hear you not cheer but I did it for you anyway). Then after I'd done that we had a really good day at work with regards to takings etc. Then we all went out for a very nice Chinese meal in the restaurant up the road from the shop and had a quite decent time. I had a hard time deciding on what to have and my mind changed itself more times than I can recount. The longer we had to wait for the other parties to arrive the more I'd pick up the menu and choose again. The main reason for it being a bloody good day though as that I have finally managed to use chopsticks without spraying my fellow diners with my rice or noodles. Although my assistant manager Rosie to my right managed to get rice on my left hand (she said it was sign of affection but quite frankly I only accept a hand down the trousers as a 'sign of affection') and supreme leader ...sorry, sales team leader Chris managed to order more than he could handle (please note chicken curry without rice is not a good idea nor is filling up on sweet and sour chicken balls first ...and vodka and coke doesn't take the sting out of a spicy curry dish ...as he found out). My main portion of sympathy is for Ben who decided to order something off the menu because "it sounded funny", Seafood Ho Fun, anyway I told him he reminded me of the scene in Mr Bean's Holiday where he orders food in the French restaurant not knowing what it is and is seen chewing on a lobster. However, I having managed to master chopsticks somewhat after the best part of forty years not being able to, was having a mild time and enjoying it, (I'm too old to have a wild time). I want to go again and nearly went on my own a couple of days later even though I was so chuffed that I began showing off and tried to get a Chicken ball in my mouth with the chopsticks this all went well until about two centimetres from my mouth and it made a bid for escape so I stabbed it with a single stick and drowning it in sweet and sour sauce and chomped the old choppers down then carried on shovelling the old chicken chow mein in me cakehole. For some reason as I sat at my laptop writing this afterwards, a pigeon (who had made the flight several times before without mishap) decided this was the time he'd get drunk and try to fly onto my roof above the bay window where I sit creating legendary literary drivel. To say he misjudged it would be an understatement. The roof was about two feet above my window unfortunately the pigeon was working in metric and the house was built in imperial. He flew into the top of my window pane and made me jump. He slid stunned onto the window ledge and fell over. By the time I'd gotten downstairs to see if he was alright some thirty seconds later the thing had completely disappeared making me wonder if I'd actually imagined it. I asked my landlord if he had heard it and he had but he thought it was me dropping my D.M.s off my feet at the end of a long day. Where the pigeon went I have no idea but I do have a pigeon smudge on my window to prove I wasn't imagining things. I mean if my imagination was that good I'd be constantly wrapped up in a threesome with Justine Frischman and Winona Ryder with Kate Humble on alternate weekdays and there'd be a hell of a mess.

Hi Mike, I'm just a little confused about the rs part numbers as there is no part 1. I downloaded parts 2-5 and winrar asked for part 1 but still unrar'd parts 2-5 and I appear to have 70 tracks so I'm guessing all is fine,just thought I'd check. It's a brilliant upload. Thanks very much.

Mike said...

Ah well done I wondered who'd be the first to spot that ;)

Hi there,
2 years ago you've uploaded the film called 'Those Glory Glory Days'.
I know it takes such a long time, but would you be so kind to upload it again, please? I would be very pleased, that's the only way I can get it.
Many thanks!
Mark, from Hungary

Hi Mike my first visit here in far too long, great stuff as always.
Just downloaded the Prince Buster actually looking for one B-side "musical college" from Big Five and it wasn't there sadly but 70 great tunes made up for it :)

This website lists all the Fab records - http://www.xs4all.nl/~tapirs/fab7.htm - to help with all those "no titles".

Keep up the great work.
