Guess what? it’s pay day, guess what? yeah that’s right I went and bought an xbox 360. It’s one ugly looking piece of kit and noisy too making it very difficult to hide. Other than that it’s awesome. This weekend is a write off, and hope fully the rest of the month too :).
Might get xbox live setup…don’t really know anybody else that has it setup…or even if that’s an issue. Anybody got any reasons why not to get it? (other than eliza)
Well it’s finally happened…courtesy of Gary Wood. Four player wii action. First of all you need a massive room and you need at least 3 mates…we had all these boxes checked. Played wii tennis although an instant flaw was found. We were sweating and it made drinking very difficult. So the sports option was binned very quickly.
Inspired by alcohol on friday afternoon however I went and bought super monkey ball banana blitz which I knew was going to be awesome. It has over 50 mini games all can be played whilst making a hangover, as well as with a hangover so I recommend it to anyone.
My sister just come back from Shetland. To be honest I wasn’t holding out for a present but My did she do good…check this out!
Find out more at shetlandfudge.com I too was a bit dubious about clicking the link, but the site’s hilarious in it’s own right!
More gigage today me and Eliza went and seen the Rapture. I bought the tickets ages ago and roughly tied it in with Elizas birthday but it was purely selfish as she doesn’t know much about them. If you don’t know them go find out…it’s awsome. They’re from New york and it sounds kinda funky kinda housey kinda discoey kinda punky but good for a dance. The gig was good…Although it was like H&M were having a sale on skinny jeans (surely not an ideal outfit for dancing?) They also had a full time cowbell player! woohoo! his dancing was genius…like some kind of disco gollum.
The support was shit disco which i liked and Eliza didn’t. Like the rapture only a bit more punky and rough around the edges (and from glasgow! woohoo!). All good!
Well last night I went to see Nine Inch Nails or NIN as all the cool kids call them. Was a bit of a random last minute choice, some people from work were going and I thought I would give it a go. Don’t know much of their songs but enough to get the jist which only added to the randomness. Ladytron were supporting and I’ve got one of theirs (albums not children).
After work it was off to the solid just to get in a “rawk” frame of mind and remind myself how bad I am at pool. Later we walk to carling academy where it’s pretty clear the bulk of the crazys we’re caught in the crowd with were also going to the gig. How out of place did I look?
Just caught the end of Ladytron wasn’t that impressed it all just came out as a wall of noise.
NIN were good although there isn’t a great deal I could compare it to. For the first 5 songs the whole academy was filled with smoke so all the lighting just turned it into a warzone…which was…eh…different. They have alot of crazy tunes it all a bit difficult to do anything to really. One minute it’s quiet and mellow (just when you’re about to strike up some banter) then it just turns to thrash.
Concert comes to an end start talking to member of security i’m quite drunk at this point and everything is quite hilarious. Asked him what was the best thing he’d seen live having worked there a few years…then he said it…”Richard Ashcroft“…we left.
I’m glad I went…just haven’t figured out why yet. Having nothing to eat for most of the day I opted for an early tube home and a scooby snack…job done!
