I feel like shouting from the rooftops!

The Pittsburgh Steelers are playing Wembley Stadium next year!

I've been thinking about making the pilgrimage to Heinz Field for a couple of years now but next year they're landing on my doorstep!

I really couldn't be more excited! It may seem silly to others but the universe seems a little bit brighter today!

Kicking back on what has felt like my first proper day off in ages!

Feeling a little more relaxed today away from work. I was kinda forced into this position being made redundant from my last job. Not that I was thrilled there but it kinda pulled the rug from under my feet. In sheer desperation I took the first job that was offered to...

Last night I fell in love. love

Caught a gig in Nottingham. Bosnian Rainbows, including Omar Rodriguez Lopez of the Mars Volta and At The Drive In fame. Also Deantoni Parks on drums, Nicci Kaspar on keyboards and the lovely Teri Suarez (aka Teri Gender Bender of Le Butcherettes) leading the vocals.

She sure can dance! An absolutely wild performance and such an intimate gig. Might...

it's always awesome when an artist recognizes your passion for them amongst everyone else in the crowd.

My vinyl copy of Mule Variations arrived on the doorstep today! Could be Tom Waits best work. Especially with the beautiful final song 'Come On Up To The House'. That part of the record will get well worn I bet!

I needed it after another pretty poor day at work. (Actually thats an understatement. It was utter shite!)
auburn:

wooooo! thanks biggrin

Hope you like the song. I'm forever trying to convert my friends to Mr. Waits but I guess his voice is what you would call an acquired taste! "Like it was soaked in a vat of bourbon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months, and then taken outside and run over with a car."

I decided to make my long awaited return to the site after over a year. (Has it really been that long!?) Gonna make a serious effort at keeping a blog this time.

Quite a few changes since last time. Got some new friends, got a new job, seen a lot of movies, heard a lot of records. Spent about 10 weeks in the dole queue...

Ok so this is kinda cheating and an update for the sake of it, but it occurs to me that I've not blogged since last October! Jeez I'm bad at this!
Well I'm still with you guys. Still rocking the site. Kinda glad that I'll be joined by people at work tomorrow. Because of the royal wedding people have had about...

Updated my profile. There were a lot of empty boxes.
In a better mood. Enjoying a chilled out weekend. Got tickets to see Black Label Society in London in February! Seems like I've been waiting years for them to tour again. Booked the time off work so have a very Metal week to look forward to!

Kick off in a half hour! See you...

Feeling pretty low about myself today. It doesn't really help much looking the way I do but I caught sight of the top of my head in a mirror the other day. You see male pattern baldness runs in my family and I've been hit pretty bad! You cant really tell from my profile pic either but I also have long hair worn...

Time for an update! Too easy to fall into the trap of checking everyone else's blogs and not my own.
Life has been boringly predictable recently. Same old routines. Did discover however that my new work collegue and I share the same social circles going back about six years despite not knowing each other. A lot of that has been happening recently. I think...

Good to see another Nick Cave convert, I love his music. I went to see him when he toured the UK last year and it was great show. He had been one of the people I always wanted to go see, main person left now is Tom Waits.

With M Night's previous track record, these days I never hold any hope for his movies turning out to be anything other than underwhelming.
