GEORGE WASHINGTON'S MASONIC APRON



I wouldn't mind getting one of those to do the washing-up.

IBS PLAY KRAAK FEST '09

I guess it's okay to mention this now. Yep, Ice Bird Spiral to play Kraak...!! Shurely, shume missshtake...

I know the Kraak guys like to keep things under their hats, but since there's now an advert for this in Wire, etc I guess it's okay to spill the beans. Cheers to Steve n Tommy n...

Great line-up (and I'll come back to this nearer the event), but...

Henry Flynt! Fucking Henry Flint, man. How awesome is that! (Okay, so mayyybe I'm just a little bit excited)...

Meanwhile, in breaking news, our pal Edgar Wappenhalter gets his photo taken with Kevin Ayers! Kevin Ayers...!!!

(Sorry, I'm coming down with a dose of that weird over-excitable italics-flu that's going round right now...)

IT'S NOT MY BAG

I hate buying anything in Marks & Spencers - I try to avoid the damn place completely, if possible - but every time I go in there the fuckers give me another Bag For Life.

I now have so many of these that I'm like a cat, with nine or more lives in the bag; metaphorically, if not literally: cartoon ropes snap and falling safes and pianos crash down on me from above, leaving me undamaged; I bounce off the bonnets of hit-and-run drivers with little more than a scratch. Everytime, I just get up, dust myself down and keep walking (cue: background music by Chumbawumba). And still they keep giving me more Bags For Life.

How many more bags? How many more lives?

Do stuntmen buy their microwavable meals in M&S?
