Cut off

  Thu 13th December 2012

Yesterday afternoon I uploaded a mangled version of an audio blog post, but as I am manfully up at 6am in order to listen to the Fourth Test against India, I have taken the opportunity to upload a better version of Today's blog post. The original cut off the last few seconds.

Hope she dances as good as me mate, in fact I reckon she will be 10 times better.
Enjoy your Saturday. Have they sorted the annual September do, if so I may need a single room.

P.S. Good luck with the bloody bailifs.

Well Tony she’ll have to be a nifty mover to match your swerves :) They’ll definitely be running the Spetember weekender. There’s a slight possibility she won’t like it so I’ll let you know whether you need a single room (or a girlfriend) :)

DF: Thanks! I wish they’d bloody hurry up and come round. The waiting’s the worst.

She no work, cap’n. I tried on two platforms; my iPhone and PC netbook. What’s this about a bailiff?

Listened to it and am now greatly worried. I didn’t know you were a Dalek.

It was so crackly, and full of pops and hisses that I couldn’t really understand it at all.

Have you been naughty again?

Oh right ok, I’ll scrap it. It’s a cheap recorder and I had to hold it close to the pc’s microphone to transfer it. I’ve just tried it on the girls’ computer and yes it’s incomprehensible.

But in a nutshell:

1) Fucking lodger has got the heating on all bloody day, and I’m anxious about approaching him to say the rent isn’t fixed at the level of having the heating on for fifteen hours a day.

2) I’ve got bailiffs coming round any day now because I owe the Council 630 quid.

3) I’m just trying to get through to Friday night when I can concentrate on Saturday, when I am going out dancing with Trina ("a fucking top bird, as we say in the local parlance"), at the Modern Soul and Soulful House night in St Anne’s.

Strange–works ok for me on my own computer but not on the girls’.

Never mind–

1) Bailiffs haven’t turned up.
2) Soulful House @ the Langdales tonight has appeared in the Weekend section of today’s Guardian, so I hope that doesn’t mean there’ll be lots of people there called Saturn and Storm, agonising about having to downsize to a 700K house in Clapham.

looby, n.; pl. loobies. A lout; an awkward, stupid, clownish person

M / 60 / Bristol, "the most beautiful, interesting and distinguished city in England" -- John Betjeman [1961, source eludes me].

"Looby is a left-wing intellectual who is obsessed with a) women's clothes and b) tits." -- Joy of Bex.

WLTM literate woman, 40-65. Must have nice tits, a PhD, and an mdma factory in the shed, although the first on its own will do in the short term.

There are plenty of bastards who drink moderately. Of course, I don't consider them to be people. They are not our comrades.

I am here to change my life. I am here to force myself to change my life.
Chinese man I met during Freshers Week at Lancaster University, 2008

The more democratised art becomes, the more we recognise in it our own mediocrity.
James Meek

Tell me, why is it that even when we are enjoying music, for instance, or a beautiful evening, or a conversation in agreeable company, it all seems no more than a hint of some infinite felicity existing apart somewhere, rather than actual happiness – such, I mean, as we ourselves can really possess?
Turgenev, Fathers and Sons

I hate the iPod; I hate the idea that music is such a personal thing that you can just stick some earplugs in your ears and have an experience with music. Music is a social phenomenon.
Jeremy Wagner

La vie poetique has its pleasures, and readings--ideally a long way from home--are one of them. I can pretend to be George Szirtes.
George Szirtes

Using words well is a social virtue. Use 'fortuitous' once more to mean 'fortunate' and you move an English word another step towards the dustbin. If your mistake took hold, no-one who valued clarity would be able to use the word again.
John Whale

One good thing about being a Marxist is that you don't have to pretend to like work.

The working man is a fucking loser.
