  • Well, that took a day to slip right back into. Our fast-food addiction, we mean. Last night, we were so good. We were almost an adult. We went to the bloody shop and bought these things called foodstuffs. We cooked the foodstuffs. We felt pretty good about it and ourselves before during and after. Then today happened. See, what you want to do when you're running around London like a plank with a particular artist in tow, is align all the labels on one day, and all the publishers on another day. If the twain shall meet, which clearly we have allowed it to do to day, this means you will spend half the time dicking around Kensington and just have enough to make it back to HQ just so you can leave again straight away for the other meetings which are someplace completely different. As a result, we have done next to fuck-all work today, having just caught up with everything yesterday. Anyway, our meager contribution to somewhat more-visible productivity today comes in form of this-here write-up on a guy called James Canty. He is...

WE FEEL OKAY NOW. It’s cool. You can carry on, as you were. Yes, admittedly we had to once more turn to the deep-fried deliciousness that is fast food to comfort ourselves – seriously, we were not in a good way yesterday, which led us to being all fusty and musty towards certain people in … Read more

Anyone else feeling a latent fuzzy effect from the weekend? We mean, we really lucked out with the weather huh? Were the scenery at Reading Festival’s Richfield Avenue site similar to what the London skyline currently is on this dreary-as-it-is Tuesday afternoon – and indeed it was, on the Monday afternoon that we decided to … Read more

We hope you’re having a ruddy brilliant Thursday evening. Having fun, are ya? Going to drink the shit outta some beers, will you? Friends and colleagues will aid the party atmosphere, shall they? Well, that’s just fucking great for you. We’re still in the goddamn office. We want to leave. Why won’t you let us … Read more

Hey, guess what? We slept like sheep counting ain’t no thang. Konked out. No nothing. We even dreamed, which doesn’t usually happen, or at least doesn’t happen very often. We believe our subconscious is both excited and anxious about Reading Festival on many counts; spliced with the most-frank chat about women in general that we’ve … Read more

It is entirely possible we are succumbing to stress, once again. The insomnia – which comes and goes with the changing of the seasons anyway, which is at least part of the explanation as to what has become a principal ailment of ours for the last, dunno, lifetime – doesn’t seem to be shaking. We’ve … Read more

We managed to completely botty out of hitting up V Festival this weekend. Gutted. We became a prisoner of our own (then) miserable body which only just about got us outdoors on Sunday to watch something called “The Football”. This meant that we managed to miss Sons & Lovers slay/lay waste to/party up/etc the rapturous … Read more

Ok. So we had a few drinks last night. We deserved it; and now we are paying for it. We can’t move. Disabled. Zip. No movement going down up in here. This does not bode well for our man Papa John who has recently dispatched a big-ass disc of food known as pizza in return … Read more

Insomnia’s back. That piece of bitch. We are taking lectures from all and sundry about how to address this. Exercise more. Eat more healthily. Do this. Do that. Blah de blah blah blah. None of you lot have suggested “have some more time”. Time is what we need, and unfortunately something that cannot be appropriated … Read more

Life is worth living. That’s what we think, anyway. Perhaps today of all days is a stark reminder that despite the seemingly pleasurable and often-comedic output of certain individuals – their “gifts” to the world, as it were – it often takes its toll on that individual. They more you give, with a smile on … Read more
