Random II

I saw some Ostriches today in a field near Chesham. They are quite amazing creatures from a different time and space, they used to be dinosaurs dontchaknow. They can make the most amazing sound by inflating their necks - it sounds a bit like a didgeridoo.

Near Death Experience
I cut through a live power cable. It went pop, like someone popping a crisp packet. It burnt a 2mm hole in my metal clippers. The RCD in the house fuse box tripped. I didn't feel a thing.

I'm doing a remix of Radiohead's new single Nude. Lots of people are doing it. I think it's kinda cheeky that they charged us 79p per track to download the individual stems.

I've put my name forward to appear on Tom Robinson's unsigned band podcast and show on BBC6. My friends Wayne (Fit & The Conniptions) and Victoria & Jacob have already been played. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

I will be at The Duchess in Battersea Park tomorrow night to do a floorspot. Come along from 8.30 and join in the fun. Mine's a Guiness.

Love to all,


P.S. Two new songs on the way too!

Near death experience! Phew for the 'near' part! I was once a conduit for a lightning bolt: it hit the post office I was in just as my arms were pushing a package under the metal grating - contact of my arms to the metal grating: vavooom! What a rush. :)

Ostriches sound like a digeridoo? Shame they aren't an Australian bird. That's the emu!

Clarissa: Well if not for the 'near' bit I guess my blogging days would be over. Wow, your experience sounds much more significant! Glad you're still here too.

Vi: Yeah, shame about that, would have been an interesting observation otherwise! Still kinda weird though, I wonder if Emus make the same noise.
