  • So, this is it. The last grope. The final countdown. End game. Sort of. One of the most staunch revelations we've had over the last week or so - y'know, the one where it's really difficult to give a shit about basically anything because of the general atmosphere riddled with those similarly giving up on (work) life, and the KM Christmas party on Tuesday evening (ta to Jay Brown and Malpas for playing for everyone's sonic and visual delight) that later turned into the biggest sit-in piss-up that you ever did see did not help remedy our lacklustre mindset yesterday at all - was told unto our person by one Mike Hemsley yesterday evening as we saw him bundle out of The Stillery in Camden which just happens to be very near our new stomping ground. Mike, for those who don't know, is like the Squire of all dudes and a credit to geeks everywhere. We like him a lot. Anyway, Mike said that people stopping work over the festive break is a myth, and being busy was a good thing in contrast to having fuck-all to do. Or something along those lines. Anyway, whilst this will almost certainly be the last...

Are the best things really saved till the, y’know, last? Based on how this week has gone we might well end up agreeing with whoever the bloody hell thought it was a good idea to mutter that otherwise nonsensical proverb. As in, this is the last week. THE LAST WEEK EVER. Until we decide to … Read more

Safe to say that weekend was a complete and utter write-off. Save for one or two last-minute work-related panics and and subsequent moans about this, that, and of course the other (although this is fairly standard practice for our weekends), we really didn’t do that much at all. Sons & Lovers/Money For Rope/Ally McCrae fucked … Read more

  It is really rather difficult to give a fuck about anything right now, huh? Come on, admit it. The festive break is right around the corner. For most people that we’re in relatively close proximity to, next week is indeed the final working week of the year. The last push. The final hurdle. The … Read more

It genuinely feels like the nights are indeed longer than they were before, but so are the days. Perhaps its to do with all this additional time that we’ve somehow procured in the last week or so. Or that we’re still working our proverbial A’s off whilst everyone else is thinking about trains etc back … Read more

You know what’s cool about having a 20 minute journey door-to-door to work? Fucking EVERYTHING mate. That extra forty minutes is vital. Think about that. Forty minutes saved on an either-way journey. So eighty minutes. Multiply that by however many working days you have in your week (we have lots and lots of these), then … Read more

  Wussuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuup Camden? We’re totally in you. And not just us. Our stuff is in you. Boxes and boxes of stuff.

In all fairness we probably should have written this up on Friday; however, we quite literally had our hands full as we prepare to shift our officey-style affairs from West London to the much-more-conveniently-located-considering-where-we-live North London. So TfL may well be slightly gutted to read this. Yes boys, you have made a small fortune out … Read more

We may be ill. We can’t be too sure. Ever since bouncing back to London from seeing some European peeps last week, we’ve felt like a little bit of a wrong’un. On the return flight our ears got fucked – which is to say that they popped mid-flight, and given an experience a few years … Read more

The day that we’ve all been dreading has finally arrived. No, we haven’t become real people or indeed a threat to general/good society (although that depends on your definition of “real”, “threat”, “good” and also whether or not you’ve seen our hair lately. We be feral as fuck yo, but this is commonly referred to … Read more
