I mean they’re good bollards
My phone is set to cycle between pictures of family, pets and landscapes on the background screen. I LOVE that one of its favourites of the latter is some bollards near an oil refinery ❤️

IT'S A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE 😭
A fox cub which was blinded by cataracts had its sight restored after undergoing a delicate operation at Seadown Vets in the New Forest.
This is just one of the gentlest, loveliest albums ever.
No wait I’m lying! I do have cloud backup - with backblaze. I do the backup to external drives manually as I have to delete stuff every couple or three months in order to keep laptop from overflowing - but those external drives back up to BB.
Some people were born in leather and looked right in it at every age.
Oh god do it do it do it. I’ve been careless and lost treasures in the past, now I back up everything to two external drives. Ideally I’d probably have a cloud backup too but that’s complicated and possibly witchcraft.
Palestrina masses with a strong sour beer here 👌🏻
The thing about this is: they DO be.
when we feel safe and comfortable with the ones we love, and every passing year brings that home even more. So: SEASON’S GREETINGS, FUCKOS - ENJOY IT!!!
I do harp on about the importance of music that’s gentle, domestic, intimate, etc, and how pernicious it is that “safe” and “comfortable” and “coffee table” are pejorative terms applied to music. It’s a harsh world out there and we should absolutely cherish the privileged moments
I started this playlist 11 years ago putting up Xmas decoration with my daughter asleep in a basket. It's soft, sentimental music to celebrate comfort and safety. Now she's taking charge of the decorations, passing time REALLY turbocharges the sentiment

🎶 NO SUNSHINE! NO MOONLIGHT! NO STARDUST, NO SIGN OF ROMAAAAANCE, WE DON’T STAND A CHAAAAAAAAANCE 🎶
I think my favourite celeb encounter was walking through Brighton with my mate Zoe one evening late 90s and seeing Neil Morrissey and a McGann brother out on the razz. She shouted “famous blokes!”, Morrissey shouted back “pissed bird in a hat!” and then we each went on our way.
He also broke up a fight between Sean Connery and Oliver Reed in George Best’s club (or possibly a different iteration of those three but definitely a fight between two of them in the third one’s gaff, I always forget which, but I think that’s right)
Literally just green boots! He didn’t like them.
My very Italian father in law managed various bars / restaurants in Soho in the 70s and 80s. He really HATED “her and her sister, always shouting, always on the bloody cocayyyne”.
He also hated “Tom Jones in is-a fuckin green boots”
The concept of the winsome acoustic cover of rock / disco / etc songs has been so debased by advertising but when it’s done right it still has great power.

This sounds like something another spy would say.

Unfortunate as Mulhern has one of those faces that instantly gives me The Fear 😰
Was listening to The Cure in the car on the way to pick Punk 11yo up. She got in, said “well THIS is very bad singing” and switched it off.
“Why is it so bad?” she said. “It’s just his style.” “Well he should try having a style that involves singing well!”
Absolute brain-tickling hip-twitching ram-jam slam-dunk PARTY IN YOUR LUGHOLES for the last monthly roundup of the year. I cannot emphasise enough how much you will enjoy all these records. Go go go! If you press play at the top it'll run through a playlist of a track from each.
I went to ibiza a couple of years ago. When the plane landed half the passengers yelled “WAHEYYYYYYY!”
Your idea of causality is literally “look what you made me do”.
Your idea of causality CAUSED me to call you a deluded prick - that’s how this works, right?
As I once pointed out, if he was a middle class white lad with a funny haircut he'd be a mega headliner superstar, but that's showbiz and the prejudice is baked in Anyway, he is one of the best producers out there, and this album will remove your head top.
RIGHT it's BANDCAMP FRIDAY. My November roundup should be up later today but this isn't in it because it's a December release. Altered Natives is a cantankerous and brilliant man and he's made a jungle album and it's INCREDIBLE.
It's endlessly telling that these guys will always "reluctantly" praise a right winger like this dufus is with Liz.
It's exactly like Yannis Penisskull today: "Say what you like about Kissinger, he supported my worldview when push came to shove"
Fucking hell it's been such a long year I can't believe I actually did this in 2023

Isn’t it Chas off of Chas & Dave? I choose to believe so.
It would certainly explain why he seems able to hold literally any ideological position from Tankie to shitlib to MAGA at any given moment and see no contradiction. It's like he spins a wheel of fortune type thing before deciding what his take is going to be.
Prevarication levels: asking the AI for Betty Boop tarot cards

I think I would have literally died if I'd have encountered her in this era.
Can remember hearing it on Peel after staggering home from doing buckets at some older boys' shared house. Took the top of my skull off and made it spin round.
