Old Friend

Weather, Work and New Music

Ok, so the weather men were right.

I didn't think having a Friday which was all blue skies and sunny enough for t-shirts would mean we'd ACTUALLY GET snow (and quite a lot of it in North London) on Sunday. Stopped snowing an hour or so back and it's starting to melt now but apparently we might have some more.

Waking up and looking out of the window to see lots of snow covered gardens and streets was very nice though. When I get home I'll see how the pciture I took on my phone of our back garden looks like once I've transfereed t to the computer and then I might treat you all to the picture. I know you all incredibly eager to see my new backgarden afterall :p

Anyway, yesterday was a very nice day in London - even if I forgot to eat anything at all until about 5.30pm. Picked up Hardware (or Mark-13 under it's alternative ttile) on DVD which I've been after for years as well as the appalling Star Wars Christmas Special to lend to Sean and David at work to prove to them the true terribleness of it (the DVD was very cheap). I also picked up some new CDs (the new Hocico 'Memorias Atras'  and Wumpscut 'Polyalbum Schadling'  Limited Editions as well as a 4-CD collection of Wumpscut remixes 'Dwarf Craving' and 'A Different Life' from Diorama).

Today I'm at work getting orders and paperwork ready for the week and listening to my new selection of music LOUDLY :)

Hope everyone is having a good weekend and to catch you soon!

Music...

I think I'd have to say that I could do without most things but not music. Music has to be the most uplifting and inspirational constent in my life.

There are some songs that can take me a million away and fill me with such emotion and remove me from the world and everything around me. Today has luckily been filled with many of these songs and as a result I am feelingvery much on top of the world and indestructible.

In a weeks time I'm taking my laptop and portable harddrive away for the best part of the week to a cottage in the middle of nowhere. When we're not walking miles across moors seeking ruins and stone circles and whilst Jasmina is off meditating, doing yoga and staring off across the green countryside or out into sea I'll be plugged into the laptop writing and listening to some of my favourite tunes miles from civilization.

Music is one of my ultimate loves and inspirations.

I can't think of anything else that I can compare it to in my life.
