Emmy the Great just wrote and recorded me a song to cheer me up. It's amazing.
mic cds for oceanstorm and thommo and bamos
I'm almost finished making the one that's officially for Bamos but I'm going to give OceanStorm a copy as well, because I owe him one from ages ago.
I'd totally forgotten about that!
you weren't meant to read it, and it was going to be a pleasant suprise.
*punches self in the face*
you know they mean so much to me.
And so do you, sometimes.
-that was totally apt for my MixCD, good work Colin :-)
*hands monpot a sock, filled with lemons*
it IS a pleasant surprise, just a bit earlier than you had planned it to be.
it's later than planned innit. A year later. Oops.
I did actually make a playlist for your last one, but I never burned it, then the computer died and I lost all the MP3s. My old did burn it off to listen to in work though, which I didn't know. One of his workmates also moonlights as a sound-engineer in Barfly Cardiff, and he nicked the CD, so imagine my suprise when I'm sat in Barfly, waiting between bands, thinking "wow, whoever's playing the tunes has ace taste!" before realising it was the Long Lost OceanStorm Mix!
apologies in advance for lack of artwork, my printer has given in and I can't draw for shit. The music's pretty good though ;)
how are we supposed to top that?
I got a free ice cold drink from costas today for working hard in boiling heat, it was nice.
and now there are lots of helicopters whizzing about.
I like helicopters, so that bit is quite nice.
i hate that song
Â£50 under my laptop
On a night when i'd usualy be lucky to get 10.
a sainsbury's carrier bag full of 5, 2 and 1 pences.
my girlfriend, who apparently looks like keira knightley, just sent me a pretty picture message.
man, good SHIZZLE.
zack de la rocha !

i'm gonna tell colin

The Famous Colins' Raffle.
Ah, well, back to Leicester for another tuck-in, followed by Colin's annual prize-giving. The Raffle, of course. There he was, like Santa Claus with his sack of goodies, handing out gifts left, right and centre. Mind you, I was rather disappointed at not receiving the star prize, the flight in the Spitfire, which he had practically promised would have my name on it!! In fact, I don't remember anybody winning it. Perhaps I should have read the small print!
i love you, brian.
okay. does he work for the riaa now as well then?
the british heart foundation.
the WWF colin.
wanna make something of it?
you spend all your time trying to save pandas.
not with large sweaty men in their underwear.
got some of my artwork in print.
And shexy Nemone said my name on the radio.
somebody bought a Sonic The Hedgehog Annual off me for over five quid...
i've got an epson!
she's slutty. she eats ice cream
strawberry? can't eat that. not kosher.
it'd melt by the time you got it anyway.
Daniel will start an argument about how slutty it is to tell people that you like ice cream in public.
of course i will.
the ice cream is Cheescake Razz!
with raspberry swirls
who hung round with me at school tried to turn all the rest of my friends against me by telling them that I exploited them. It backfired, everyone got pissed off with them, and I've just received a snivelling apology from one of them, which I have rejected with sheer pleasure.
That's controlling and bitter.
When it all happened, I said: 'Just one thing. Explain the exploitation. What's that sposed to mean?'
To which they responded: 'You misunderstand. We'll have to explain it to you.'
'Now's your chance.'
'You really don't understand do you?'
someone brought in their own mix. On it was the first three tracks of Hounds of Love, Low and Flashdance. I danced while I took people's orders. What was best about it was it wasn't KT Tunstall or Corinne Billy Rae, like they usually played. And it was played to the whole shopping centre!
someone I've been close friends with since school and took him a pair of boots and a dvd player I didn't need. He's a total film and documentary buff and has never had a dvd so he was quite chuffed.
i should have my card eaten more often.
now you can pay me! and rachel!
i only owe rachel Â£6.50 anyway.
how much do i owe you? you're going to lie and rob me :*(
my band played well last night and made lots of friends with people who actually like music. As in, it was a gig put on by people who love music rather than a crappy promoter which is the norm around here.
Also, Emmy is great.
...just for walking into the downstairs room.
And then I was later introduced to Thomas Truax with the words "this is Paul Hawkins. He got a round of applause earlier for just walking into the room."
That was nice.
well done and everything
but that's a bit boasty and yuck.
It wasn't meant to sound like that at all!!!
I should stress that the "round of applause" was a funny, drunken thing started by the guy on stage and not based on anything I've ever achieved whatsoever - frankly, I think it could have been anyone who wandered in at that moment and the same thing would have happened.
I just then found it funny (and quite nice) that I was introduced to this guy I admire as though I was the kind of person who gets applause for walking into rooms when I'm, y'know, patently not at all.
I wasn't trying to sound like I'm in anyway cool or anything 'cos I'm really, really, really not in the least. Which made it a nice experience.
it's all fine.
you're the one who gets spontaneous applause after all.
When you post something on message boards and forget you're posting things that'll be read by complete strangers who
a) don't know the first thing about you
b) can't pick up on the tone of you mean things.
And then you realise you've made yourself sound like an arrogant idiot. Ah well! I guess I'll live with it.
Did you make it down to see the Bobby McGees in the end John?
Made me smile to myself.
early for the first time in AGES
and now i feel nice
are you gmailable?
Are you gullable?
you'll get it later then. srsly. best thing ever.
(i deserve gave it me, it's AMAZING)
can you tell what it is yet?
sing to the tune of "Take My Breath Away"
Feel the meat
It's heart still beating
I like it raw
It's meant for eating
Keep the flavour
the right way to live
I can't survive without three kinds of pig
FEEL THE MEAT!
oh, and buy the new Meatland 3" single
it's a double a side
"I Listened To Throbbing Gristle And Was Quite Disappointed"/"Meat is Murder (The Smiths)"
on SQUARE vinyl.
veggie 'alternative take' called falafel space station.
also, that veggie version better be a joke.
unless it's intentionally shit.
i've written a powerballad called "Falafels Are For Timmies"
I want you in my room!
We'll spend the night together,
Just you and me forever.
