Radio Silence

So it’s been a while eh? Sorry old chap.
I had to tell you about the last night hence the break in radio silence. I went to see A Seriously Funny Attempt To Get the Serious Fraud Office In the Dock! and the line up was heavenly:
Russell Brand
Mark Thomas
Omid Djalili
Mark Steel
Ed Byrne
Josie Long
Robin Ince
Stewart Lee
Jo Caulfield
Simon Amstell
Phil Nichol
Yep, Stewart Lee. I finally got to see my favourite comedian live and it was awesome. Though everyone else was outstandingly funny too and had me in fits of laughter throughout.
That wasn’t the end of it however. There was a surprise special guest…Billy Bailey! Gosh, could it have been any more perfect?!

Nature v.s Nurture

My office door is open a crack and I can hear my team debating about murderers. Again.
One claims it is due to their upbringing and the other says it is “something inside them”. This has been going on for a while now and it is driving me insane.
I scream, “This is the age old nature v.s nurture argument!!! Nobody has proven it either way over the years and you’re not going to prove it now no matter how much you debate it. So stop it! Just stop it!!”
Now they’re talking about capital punishment :/

Another Ten Years

Today marks ten years since the release of OK Computer. Yay!
“On the one hand, Radiohead’s 1997 album brought themes of technology’s effect on the human psyche back into music. On the other hand, Coldplay.” – Guardian Unlimited

Ten Years

Ten years ago today, Jeff Buckley died. I didn’t even know who he was then but now I listen to his music nearly ever day.
I’m sad that I didn’t get to see him perform live and I still can’t watch him on videos; it’s way too depressing. But today should be about celebrating his life and what better way than appreciating his incredible talent.

London to New York

Who knew it was so easy to get from London to New York? I especially like no. 37. Swim across Atlantic Ocean.
