Finally, Happy Birthday hendrix, you dead ol fuckah

 

Return of the Lotus eater

Things I have found out this week:

1. Work is overrated and long and causes neck pain and back problems that will lead to ol Stretch packing an Uzi with his lunch one of these days. (Probably Thursday)

2. Kate Middleton is as ubiquitous as the insignia for Coca Cola and Heineken, yet tastes rotten in comparison

3. “Livin on a Prayer” chorus makes no sense. Change ‘prayer’ to ‘housing estate’ and the song becomes tangible.

4. I get cravings for the title track of ‘The Fog,” so I had to buy the album, now I need the Dvd. Stupah

6. I have no desire for the new Apple iPhone, happy with what I have. Does this make me a dirty red?

7. Kitchens of Distinction are planning a new album. Fuck sake, are there any new bands? New Fast Automatic Daffodils at least have the decency to stay dead.

8. Mitt Romney is a perfect example of a potential US president, who by getting all his gaffes in early, can manipulate the short term memory of the voters who will think he is kind and someone whose knee they would like to sit on. They will end up on the roof rack.

9. The new Dallas makes the old Dallas look like the Wire.

10. Broadsheet is funny, the commenters on Broadsheet are not.

Until next time, watch out for the fog, you may see Jamie Lee Curtis.

Peel slowly and see

Hey! Cheeky!

Well that didn’t last long. Soundcloud removed the user. anyways

Dudos! Muchos Kudos por los dudos whose puts up many, many John Peel shows on soundcloud. Clicks on the many, many wonderful shows above and pretend you are a teenager again, stoned, sitting in a bedroom full of christmas lights, cigarettes and a sense of hope for the future. You can listen to a huge selection of his shows ranging from 1967 to 2004. This is a good place for confused people who always asked Stretch, “Hey Stretch. That music you listen to. Loike where do you find that stuff? Is there loike a place where all you weird munkis dressed in black go to loike circle jerk and listen to music no one cares about? Why can’t you be normal and listen to Ryan Adams or Scooooooter?” That dudo didn’t make it, but for all you other dudos in need of a slappo, this might be the beginning of a special course in cultural delousing.
As me Da used to say, “John Peel, wha!” All you need now is for Dave Grohl to start crying again.

Lotus eating and egg beating: that Coltrane woman’s great-nephew is back

Everyone’s favourite jazz thang is back.

The film is nicely done. Album, “Until the Quiet Comes” out soon. Or now, or then, depending on when this is read.
