Blog


25C forecast for London today but we're day tripping to the coast for some fresh sea air. It felt like the Mediterranean in June in Kew Gardens yesterday with only the bluebells, the many many bluebells, blowing April's cover.

On Monday I saw a Millennium Falcon in a skip in Chiswick and clearly if I was a half-decent blogger or tweeter I'd have taken a pic. I thought of fishing it out, but it had taken a direct hit to the left wing, so I let it be.

And I think we'll be seeing just how many Miyazaki films we can watch this week.

California Wives - 'Tokyo' (2011)

  1. I like your functional, reductive, almost Factoryesque, title. Maybe we should just call things Blog and Post and stop trying to be clever and artistic.

    I'm impressed Han managed to land the Falcon in a skip with a damaged left wing.

    Have a nice day at the beach.

  2. ..and a nice week in Japan. I bought an extra copy of spirited away in a charity shop the other day, just because it was there and I knew I'd bump into somebody I could give it to, and I did.

  6. Lovely day at the beach (sorry about Luton Drew). It's a terrific record isn't it?

  7. Yes although the mix is rather murky. I enjoyed snooping about the band's web site thanks to your link. The band does not sound like they're from Chicago any more than they sound like they're from L.A. Never mind Luton or London.

  8. Miyazaki: All for Spirited Away, not so hot on Hal's Moving Castle..

    In a similar motif - we saw a rare White Red Kite in Wales? PS you can catch it on Countryfile this weekend (honest!)

  10. DD - it's all true, while buzzing about mid Wales over the weekend, we dropped in at the Kite Feeding Centre and saw this ...

  11. Albino Red Kites are like Red Guinness; in existence, yet rare enough to allow folk to think it's a figbox of one's imagination.

    Life's a beach alreet. Am stuck in a multi-storey concrete office monstrosity dealing with lobotomised knuckle-dragging co-workers and the great unwashed.

    Through the murky windows it seems I can see most of the 75,000 students of this city either drinking, footballing or scaring old ladies by skateboarding unshirted on cramped pavements or scuttling through red lights.

    Luton = a septic boil on the bum of humanity.

    May I take this opportunity to wish you all a lovely Easter time. Raise a glass for Jesus - it's the least you can do.

  12. My holy self what brilliant people we have around here. That includes Davy himself with his by now no doubt painful sunburn. Probably why he's being so quiet. Mondo and Dick, I get it now although that bird looks to me like a ruddy seagull in costume. Mondo, what are you doing in Wales? Are you on the run? Too bad as you always seemed a reasonable fellow. Dick, what is all this talk about working. You mean you have a... what is the word... job? I hope you aren't one of those banker chaps who caused the downfall of civilization in prog. If you are, kindly leave food on your plate in hopes of keeping the bins full for me.
