Old Friend

RIP: Alan "Fluff" Freeman 1927 - 2006

DJ Alan 'Fluff' Freeman died today. I remember a lot of his shows during the 80's and his voice was instantly recognisable. Possibly the most recognisable voice on radio next to John Peel.

I was sad to see he died in a nursing home where he'd been resident since 2000. I guess it's better to burn out than fade away. I certainly hope I vanish from this planet long before I end up in a nursing home in any case!

Quick Update

Didn't get to sleep until 4.30am last night. I just wasn't tired so I just sat inf ront of the old computer blitzing emails, did some writing and waited for tiredness to creep up on me so I could lay my head on the pillow and actually fall asleep instead of just lying there awake and annoyed.

Doesn't seem to have affected me too badly today though. It's been really busy here which might go someway to keeping me awake I guess though. Only just managed to have lunch!!!

Anyway, I'm heading into town tonight to Seth's place where Dom, nicole, Seth and myself are going to be playing The Order of The Stick Boardgame and saying bye to nicole who's heading back to Brazil for a month for Christmas.

I still miss Brazil and really have to do something about getting back over there within the next year or two.

Anyway, must get back on with updating the LG website.

Catch you all laters!
