It’s the Me

February 3rd, 2011


February, I said to myself. February is the time to get involvulised again. The time to re-relationate yourself with Da Beans. To do some contributioning. So here I am. They say you should write about what you know, and what I know are the THINGS I see around me on the desk.

  • Bendy desk lamp
  • Birthday present for someone whose birthday was in mid-January
  • Pen shaped like a dinosaur on which messages can be recorded, and which if you press the button now, has Kev’s voice saying “rar”
  • Post-it note reminding me to buy cake tickets

There will be more later, when I know more, and thus I am able to write about more of what I know, when there is more of it.

    CAKE tickets? As in CAKE coming to the UK? They’re just playing London aren’t they 🙁 damn you CAKE.

    On my work desk, I have the following (and more):

    * A Wheelie Bin Pencil Holder
    * A Stuffed Otter
    * A Simpsons Handkerchief
    * A Radio Shaped like a Van.

    I care not for Cake. At the moment I quite like Spoon though.

    Spoon is overrated much like Fork and Chaffinch. Don’t believe the hype.

    I have heard some Spoon and I was happy with what I heard.

    Have you heard the latest stuff from Dustpan? It’s really ambivalent.

    Have they had more than one release that wasn’t an EP, cos if they have, that’s soo totally overrated.

    I think they released an EP but because it had more than five tracks on they had to re-classify it as a mini-album and by then nobody cared much.

    I know I don’t. I can’t be seen to be listening to a band that has a whole album out – however mini it is.

    I heard there was an album by a band called Tumpty, but it’s so limited edition that nobody knows what the album is called, only one copy was ever made, and the band formed ten minutes before recording it and split up immediately afterwards. The single vinyl copy was crushed underfoot as the band left the recording studio.

    OH. MY. GOD. I love Tumpty, they are so good. They are such a breath of fresh are in the stale, multiple release world of today’s music business.

    I have the 39th and 43rd shards of that vinyl somewhere. I’ve tried playing them by cellotaping them to a Simply Red record but all you hear is coughing.

Something random
