Brad Renfro 1982-2008

I only just found out that actor Brad Renfro died earlier this year. How fucked. I will always remember him from one of the coolest comic book movies ever made: Ghost World.

To An Ex

Did I watch Origin? Good grief. You're still a big sports dag, I see. No I didn't watch the footie. One of my facebook friends wrote something like "Go the blues!" which I think is such a retarded statement. The whole thing is idiotic if you ask me. Going bananas over sporting teams. My friend The J Man wrote the best line on that when he said, "These people who spend all weekend watching sports. The only excuse must be that they have completely memorised the Bible..." He's somewhat of an extreme Christian, so it was funny.
Anyway, my mother goes bananas over the tennis still, so I just say whatever, if you like that sort of thing go for it, but I'll take an afternoon with my nose in a book thanks (or a video game, or movie, or even dusting, or cleaning the toilet).
But having said that, you won't find a bigger fan of women's synchronised swimming, or gymnastics.
And yes, I do cook in my microscopic galley kitchen. I like to pretend I'm on a boat. It's cosy!

Textures - Millstone

If you don't mind a bit of shouting, you might love this song and video as much as I do. Their new album Silhouettes is very good too.

List Feedback Appreciated

It's so wonderful to receive feedback when you have posted a list of various items you have bought in the past few weeks. It makes the effort to type it all out worthwhile, it really does.
I'll post another list soon - I only hope it inspires my readers as much as the other one did.
