Dehermitting

I've been a hermit since Christmas. Not going anywhere, and not seeing anyone much. You can't stay at home forever, so I ventured out on Saturday, and took Tukru with me. (I drag her out of the house, she tells me when I'm being an idiot (frequently), it works out nicely). Tukru wore a purple wig.... Read More...

What about the voice of Geddy Lee?

On Thursday I went to see the last night of the Pavement reunion at the Brixton Academy (I refuse to call any of the London venues their new sponsorship names).

Last Weekend

Panda Eyes

Hot Silk Pockets are my friend's band, and they're ace. I often get phases where there's only one song I want to listen to. Their song Panda Eyes was the only song I could listen to last week.
