touche  ;D

No. I had more than a grain of truth on my side, whereas Richard's contribution was mindless and unfounded retaliation. Untouched.

Just bought a new copy of Hotel California as my existing copy is pretty noisy and I'll be featuring it on my next 'Classic Vinyl@The Plough' on Wednesday. I wasn't expecting a stellar issue, sound wise, for £16.99 but it is considerably quieter than the one I have. Unfortunately it has a significant pressing fault in the form of a 'bubble' on one track probably caused by a lack of care at the pressing plant - thunk.......thunk.......thunk.......thunk. Noticed it before I'd removed it from the inner sleeve. Unplayable.
Back to the shop tomorrow  >:(

Mice!
Went to the Garage to get my chain cleaner and lube for the bike to find that mice have been in and shredded the foam pads in the cleaner and nibbled a hole in the lube bottle so that's all over the garage floor. Luckily it was the dry lube and they'd left the wet lube bottle alone - apart from secreting the top of the bottle somewhere. Hopefully the pesky critters will all have been poisoned!

Refunded as I had the last copy. Collected a replacement from Amazon locker today - great copy, no sign of previous pressing flaw. Happy bunny. Shame I was unable to support my local independent store though.

Pubs and Clubs that allow these guys to stand in the Gents toilets trying to give you soap and scent to wash your hands and paper towels to dry them all for a tip - here's a tip, I am perfectly capable of washing and drying my own hands there is no need for you to be here........Dingwalls in Camden last night - a rock gig - no need!!!

Pious fool Justin Welby showing his execrable anti-secularist true colours in the HoL today. 

Long past time the 26 unelected professional faith-peddling old bigots were placed in a safe space well away from the machinations of the State.  As it stands the only other the country to have a similar arrangement where clerics sit in such positions of power simply because they're clerics is Iran.

Embarrassing.

Masses of fecking snow everywhere. Supposed to be on nights later as well. Will have to look at conditions nearer the time and decide if it's safe enough to try and get there.

We got forecast 10-20cm, and had a good 9 inches of the bastard stuff.

No good deed goes unpunished!

No amount of anxiety can change the future. No amount of regret can change the past.

Proper balls-up at Leeds Academy for Extreme/Dan Reed Network tonight.

Still a massive, glacially slow queue outside - in freezing cold - when DRN started so mickpaz and his mate and I missed the large majority of their set.

I’ve never seen such a shambolic operation at the venue, it’s usually smooth as clockwork.  Really took the shine off the evening. ☹️

Went in Thor's Tipi in Sheffield today on our works' Xmas do for a quick flagon of ale, and there's only me rubbed down with baby oil, wearing a furry nappy and waving an inflatable Mjolnir in the place!
