this was the place i 'nearly' went to see pulp, oasis, suede, nine inch nails and faith no more whilst they were still smalltime(ish) i did go to plenty of other gigs + club nights over the years there though, speshly whilst in my teens.

that's 1 less club without a dress code now too.

so we went down london and watched chelsea thrash villa 4 nil. we had q a good laff before the match, setting off fireworks in our favourite park near the ground. matt did his sobering up ruff trick 2 days in a row as we headed home and the coach inexplicably drove past harrods. we didn't get back to brum till 10 to 2 and after some junk food, we were all starving, we got a black cab back with a driver who kept dozing off and was worryingly drinking red bull.

wasn't planning on leaving the flat on thurs as i came to grips with the day / nite before but my mum needed me to pick her some stuff up.

went and got a load of grub ( and beer ) in on friday and then went to admas party as i'd got roped in to djing. i q enjoyed it and i was q drunk by the end. stef n rod came down which was cool. nat turned up n i ended up getting a cab back with him.

ate food all day n nite saturday n watched villas win up at everton on the net. didn't gp out flat all day.



last ex blooze player to score for villa?? answers on a postcard please ( i'm hoping surprisetruck will get it )


we had a good pro evo tournament at micks on the nite. i'm getting q a bit better at it now n can give mick, dave and nat nuch closer matches now, even scraping the odd win.

played football on sunday. i wasn't as good as the week before as i had a strain on the inside of my left thigh that i really don't know how i got.

on the night we had another pro evo tournament and watched 'the business' which i enjoyed. prob more so having spent a lot of time in spain in the mid 80's.






didn't leave the flat on monday, did cook a nice tikka masala though, won't go out today either but will cook a nice pork hoi sin thing. mmmmmn.

might do a bit of running around tomorrow. andy j is supposed to come up on the nite but we've both cancelled on each other so many times l8ly who knows if he'll get here?

might go have a mooch round town on thurs. depends on the wether i suppose.

metalheadz on friday. would be cool to go. depends, as usual, if nat fancies it.

stef has said 'bout a jibbering records do, their 6th birthday, on saturday nite which sounds cool.

i could never decide if this song was cheesy or cool but anyway thinking about it now you can hear that it's a bit of a cross of the sounds that had gone before on homework and were to come on discovery.

michel gondry video too.

a small consolation for gareth missing out on the england squad due to his current injury n also missing todays win up at everton was the fact his goal against spurs, which led to the picture below, was named goal of the month for october.



have you heard the 1 about the 3 englishmen, the colombian and the bulgarian?

went up to beccys thing. had a ropey pint so decided to hit the cocktails. an hour later i walked out of there with a pounding headache and my pockets a good deal lighter. the music had been depressing too but i hadn't noticed it whilst i was throwing the cocktails down my neck so that hit me too. i caught the bus home feeling like some1 was putting a dr martin boot in to my head.

i must get round to telling you the story about 1 of my nbours and the pakistani porn DVD's too.... lol.

off to the match in a bit...

decided to go up the shops for something to do and bought all those fun things like toilet duck, scourers, loo roll, cotton buds, that sort of thing. saves getting them another day. got my sister some chocolates and a card as part of the stuff for her birthday too. saves worrying about it nearer the time. maybe i'm actually getting organised??

decided to have faggots n mushy peas for tea so i had the dreaded pot noodle for lunch, which was surprisingly nice but they are about as filling as a bread sandwich.

really looking forward to tomorrow now..... will be nice to actually get out of brum for the day / nite. q looking forward to this thing later too, prob won't stay too late though.

saturdays drop beats not... has been cancelled due to the fire officer and police report.

http://forum.breakbeat.co.uk/tm.asp?m=1968596523

i only went on to look up the set times too :/ turns out it's been a week since it was cancelled with prior rumours doing the rounds.

fuuuuukkkkkkkk. was really looking forward to that :/ only upside is i've now got a spare 30 odd quid to my name. will defntly have to get to metalheadz at the custard factory the week after.

EDIT; the music for this post should perhaps of been; jane's addiction 'idiots rule' or N.W.A. 'fu(k the police' or S.F.A 'the man don't give a fu(k'

andy j can't make it up till thurs so i'll do the curry that nite which will prob leave me with a pot noodle for 2nite :/

beccy contacted me to say she's putting on an acoustic nite up town 2nite ( in a bar i used to work a long time ago no less ) so i'll go and check that out for a bit.

had to go and pick something up for my mum yesterday n kate cooked a nice chicken thing with mushroom sauce, mushrooms and onions and peppers. was really nice.

really looking forward to the chelsea game 2mrw nite. shame we can't drink on the coach though. i was thinking last nite i was there the last time villa won a game in london, charlton, march 2004, ( also the last away game i went to ) so maybe this time too??

some1 sent me this quiz by email the other day so i thought i'd fill up some space by posting it up;

"Participate with me on this. I only sent this to folks whose answers are bound to be clever! This is what you are supposed to do, and try not to be lame and spoil the fun! Just give in and do it. Copy, not forward, this entire e-mail and paste it into new email. Change all the answers so that they apply to you then send this to a whole bunch of people you know *including* the person who sent it to you. Put your name in the subject.
