so, you're probably familiar with randall munroe's recurring character zombie marie curie, but i'm betting you didn't know that there's a real life (or should that be death) feminist icon back from the dead doing good deeds!

ladies and gentlemen, i bring you zombie anita roddick

so, there's less than a week to go before we must vacate invincible towers and it's dawning on me that i sure am going to miss living here in this flat...

i mean where else can one see such sites on a monday afternoon as this madness?

man with kitchen sink on evering road

at first, just having got back from some exam fun at university, i thought i was imagining this crazy chap outside the shop...
i was convinced that the pressure of eviction, approaching finals & financial worries had finally pushed me too far!
i was worrying that part of my mind had snapped and i'd started hallucinating...
in fact, not having had much sleep over the weekend, i was fairly certain that i'd finally lost the plot.

thankfully, this wasn't the case. it turns out my sanity's not deserted me quite yet ;)

when i left the shop the sink wielding weirdo was but a wee bit further up the road, no doubt explaining to the chap in front of him that he wanted to make sure he'd packed everything and that was why he was carrying his kitchen sink.

how to be you sure you packed everything

for all its faults, hackney really does have a different class of nutter... it'll be a shame to leave the borough, but hopefully wherever it is that i end up will be better, both in terms of entertainment provided by the local mentalists & my own personal living conditions.

what's in a name? well, in poland, it turns out a name is not just something people call you by, it also determines when your name day is.

for those of you not in the know, a name day? is kinda like a 2nd birthday.

to celebrate we went to wood green for all the chinese food we could eat & then for a nice long bus ride.

for the first time in my life i find myself envious of those brought up in catholic countries... 2 birthdays... that's 30 lots of presents i've missed out on

...good job it's being posted at stupid o'clock in the morning, eh? o.O

been busy doing not nearly enough these last few weeks, some brief1 high/low-lights [chronologically listed thanks to pathological pedanticism]:

funker vogt gig: an indecipherable blur of alcohol induced fuzz... definitely had fun, but booze stole my memories.

slaughtehaus5: a most enjoyable evening, culminating in some "back to the slab" action. what sunday taught me: rice takes 7 years to cook properly :D

return of monday pool: a combination of my new found proximity to the oak and eva's enthusiasm for cue sports has rekindled the fires of addiction. :D

gravity stuff: arranged guest djs for next event; finished flyers, posters, etc. and even managed to get some printed [albeit for an extortionate amount of money] in order to pester people this weekend.

uni grief: more incompetence from the university of hip hop results in the threat of suspension from my course because they won't claim my fees for this year from my lea... a long[ish] story peppered with examples of why londonmet is a shit hole. fret ye not, recounting it now would make me too angry to sleep.

friday film night: much fun was had resulting in me wandering the streets of tottenham in the wee small hours of saturday

slimelight win: unexpected uwe but band banality canceled each other out. fortunately, a dose of mak magic mixed with max&simon tearing the upstairs floor up good and proper made dave a sated boy indeed.

head-state lose: self worth needs some fixing. feeling kinda lonely too.

sunny sunday: spent almost all day in martina & will's back garden with my hosts and jennifer & matt... spring sure feels like it's here at last :D

shock camden fun: post flyering drinkage with people prevented [or at least postponed] the onset of some bleak.

1: ok, so trade descriptions may beg to differ, but fuck 'em.... bunch of pedantic cunts :p

is it actually possible to have a truly platonic relationship with someone of the opposite sex who you find attractive, or does genetic imperative render our best intentions ultimately unrealistic?

so, camden town's been ablaze tonight.

i can't help think that the timing and location of the fire is just a little bit suspicious.

what with the successful redevelopment of the stables market; the increase in property prices and continual gentrification, it does, on first appearances, look like their will be some people making an awful lot of money as a result of this unfortunate incident.

not that i'd ever be the one to point fingers, or anything, but come on... it is just a little too convenient

i knocked a man down today.

he walked straight into the side of me as i shot through finsbury park bus station. the collision almost unseated me and sent him spinning to the floor like a rag doll.

he made a high pitched girly noise as he tumbled groundwards, which for a 6ft plus black man was kinda weird.

i didn't stop [late for work] but did have time to shout "jesus mate, look where you're bloody going" before i raced across the empty junction as the green men was vanishing.

in all the heat of the moment i totally forgot it was talk like a pirate day... shoulda shouted something suitably piratical really

watching the rain showers sweep across the cityscape of london from high above the busy streets its a surreal and strangely beautiful thing. wish i had a decent enough camera to capture it.

why is it in this age of high technology is it that very often, when some item of electrical equipment stops working, the solution is to switch it off then on again?
