So fucking good.

Finally managed to see Mike Leigh's 'Abigail's Party'.

I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Anyone for Demis Roussos?

Just buy this box set - it also has 'Nuts in May' in it. Which is also fantastic.

Nightwave Plaza

I have been even more lazy than usual as of late.

One of the best soundtracks to my laziness is Nightwave Plaza.

Give it a listen.

You might like it. I think it makes boring rubbish seem more movie-like.

You might not like it. Whatever.

They have an app now. If that's your thing. With cool backgrounds.

My favourite background so far. Goan Daria.

Victoria Beckam for Target.

It finally arrived. After having to pay £7.00 for next day delivery it came today - 8 days later.

I was sent an email saying it would be late though. Which was nice.

UPDATE: I have been refunded the cost of shipping - thanks VB. 

Here's the only item I ordered:


And here I am wearing it while standing outside a shed:

Somebody call Models 1.

I can only speak for the piece I got. And the quality is shit hot. The fabric has a good weight. The fabric covered buttons are a nice touch. And the sleeves - excuse me for sounding like a wanker - are everything. They're long, but not falling-in-your-jelly long.


I've read some shit reviews but as far as I'm concerned this is way better than I'd expect for a $30 shirt.


Final note: the invoice papers were fastened with a rabbit shaped paper clip. That's classy as fuck.

I'm going to parade around now.

Beauty Papers and booze.

The new Beauty Papers turned up.

Beauty Papers (issue 03)
Old Mout kiwi & lime cider

That was my day off taken care of.


It's the best beauty magazine out there as far as I can see. Feel free to correct me if you think I'm wrong. If you have found something better than this I want to have a look.


There is something for everyone in this magazine. But no rules. No endless lists of products. Just encouragement of expression and acceptance. Sometimes from unexpected points of view.


I understand why a lot of people have turned away from glossy magazines. The bullshit followed by the guilt of throwing it in the bin. But you'll want to keep all the Beauty Papers and refer back to them. Every issue is like a fucking coffee table book.


I will buy a coffee table someday.
