I'm curious, did you run out of the shower screaming or is that your notion of singing?

No to both. I stayed in the shower and screamed. A mental tic like a very mild form of tourettes that happens now and then to me.

Being out of work has made me weird. I've decided to watch all of Gundam from beginning to end.

I've never watched any of it. I always assumed it was terrible. But, I enjoy G.I. Joe for some reason, so it can't possibly be as terrible as that.

Anyway... nachos, whiskey, slovenliness and Japanese cartoons from the 80's await. If I never post again, I've died and my cat has eaten me.

12/02/14 - Up before 1pm. Ate fruit. Read Russell Haswell's Invisible Jukebox in The Wire #360. Enjoyed his talk about sell-ability of music as noise without beats. "Simplicity is the only thing that can make our lives less complicated." - like that from The Golden Mirror Twitter, it puts in perspective if I stimulate myself with too many things I'll overload. Looking forward to my ushering job for a Cuban night in Oxford on Friday. Bought a ticket for my Dad who I'll see in there. Had herrings, potatoes, gurkin, salad and low fat crisps for lunch. Read The Wire #360's Collateral Damage, Global Ear and Cross Platform articles. Listened to's 14 Tracks: Gone Midnight and Ateleia - Formal Sleep, as well as Gordon Ashworth's new release.

it will rightly kick my ass right out of the mental mundanity thus far
i really need it
posted about SHELLAC, cuz FUCK i pine for thee
ate ice cream, that's lunch right?
will i do laundry today? my eternal debate
I'm actually watching "Rock'n'Roll Highschool" while i post this.
i'm random like that.
dinner? WTF!!?

look kids! you can watch it too

i used to blaze sooo much back when as a kid, and trip out on how the Ramones would record the early records on mono channels. bass in one speaker, guitar in the other
i'd literally lay on the floor, on my back, and position the speakers on both sides of my ears. sooo blazed out, and just trip out on the Ramones.
i did that lots.

youth. Hypno

went to local gym to get application forms, filled them in to return; listened to eno's "textures" lp, wrote a review of it and posted it as part of ftal; stuck under my syns allowance after not getting weighed yesterday because i thought an old friend was going to turn up; walked dog between this; watched the chase on itv and saw the beast get beaten by four players, they took home £9k each; watched a great moog video (link on my facebook) and ali g video. dinner was cuts of chicken, sweet potatoes, roasted veggies and rosemary. Smile

chicken again tonight. ha! i'm weighing 17'3 no clothes this morning. later in the day it'll prob be about 17'5. either way i've lost at least 2 pounds. gym this week has helped with that. weigh-in tonight.

not going to the gym today as my leg was dead yesterday. read some of the wire #360, still on the february issue!

working on chords and music later today.

met my new link worker yesterday, and she looks like someone i used to know. Baffled

it's good though.

...was stopped by police, because I rushed over crossroad with a yellow light (which probably was more like orange by the time I got over). Also they didn't like, that my plates were dusty. Dunno, what was the deal, but I didn't get the ticket or warning or anything. Just checked my documents at let me go.

...Terrified some project managers.

argued a bit, resolved argument, went to gym, burned 407 calories, weighed myself on gym scales, i'm 17'1 - i've lost a stone in 4 weeks! indian tonight was khazana and mushroom rice. khazana is tandoori chicken, red colour.

Ordered today as a 26th birthday present from my parents: Novachord!

"The Novachord is a gargantuan, entirely tube based, 72-note polyphonic synthesizer with oscillators, filters, VCAs, envelope generators and even frequency dividers. We sampled every one of the 72 notes on this beast - not just once, but over and over, with different settings each time."

I imagine Mike Oldfield used one of those at some point. He was on the telly tonight: Tubular Bells - The Mike Oldfield Story on BBC 4. Great watch.

Went to the gym earlier, burnt 250+ cals, within my Syns limit for the day.

Up at 5, worked, went out walked the dog, did a bit more work, went to the gym, now sat down to a bit more work before I kick off my Friday.
