- Nothing Left To Kill, by The Otherside. Los Angeles, California.
It’s my one year anniversary in my (not so) new job. Mixed emotions I suppose. Good to have a job and some money coming in, but as the song says… "Is that all there is….?". I shall be "celebrating" the start of year two with some management offsite shenanigans in Budapest, which will, at least, be a change from the norm.
I’m off to Budapest next week for, not one, but two, management offsites! Yeah, Yeah, I know it’s all going to be talk and BS, but I gather there is beer and food aftewards. I shall be taking the trusty iRiver and try and capture some sounds for the podcast!
Went to see of of my work team, Jason (aka Keegan), who is the coach of the "Reading Raptors Floorball Team", who were playing at the Dolphin Leisure Centre (now more poshly titled Olympos) this morning. Took my daughters camera, but only managed to get a few blurred images of the team playing (sse above). God, this game if fast! Or maybe I’d had too much to drink……?
Spotted that both "New Young Pony Club" and "Asian Dub Foundation" are playing at Concorde2 down in Brighton in the week commencing 12th November. Very pleased to say that I managed to get tickets for both concerts. I’m going to NYPC with my daughter and she’s very excited indeed! Of course this means I do need to listen to the album slightly more!
I’ll be going to see ADF with my son. We were going to go and see them in Brighton during their last UK tour, which was way back in 2005 when their album "Tank" came out, but it conflicted with a family holiday. Since then I pretty much thought the band has disbanded. I know Dr Das was doing his own thing, so I’ve really no idea who’s going to be in the band on the night. Neverthless they seem to have a "best of" album coming out soon, so maybe new life in the bandf yet. Most excellent!
Well finally managed to shirt the cold I’ve had, which involved a couple of days working from home and a lot of sleeping in between. Not really done an awful lot besides that.
