101th entry- Good idea for next year- or two

Hello small but loyal readership!

Before you is the 101st post on this site. I am strangely proud of this. There you go. I wasnt going to drink tonight, but if I do I shall dedicate it to you. and the entry. hmmm it better be good then.

And it won't be full of links, and photos or videos. No. Not the lazy posting tricks of looking back on 2008 and giving awards for best film or singles. no. Oh No.

Instead I shall share with you my genius, like its a secret shared. In fact, I will give you two.


I was reading the guardian insert this morning, and there was one article per month that stood out. And its really interesting. Its a good way to look back on the year. Anyway next year i will do that. Well this year really starting with Dec. So from Dec-Dec. So this time next year- you know knocking wood we are both still here {knock knock}- you can look back and see how it all worked out. If this credit crunch falters out, how arsenal won the league against all odds, and how in one year one simple idea transformed a mild mannered presentation supervisor into a London phenomenon. Phenomenon
Oh sorry. I said I wouldnt do that.

Any way- this idea I speak of is point the second;
I am going to start a photo group! hey! I will advertise on the net- in photo magazine forums, dps, flickr, shop windows and record stores. The advertising will all point to a blog in which this months theme and location will be. Then we all meet at the said location at the golden hour- which is early!!! Or could be the afternoon. So say its Hampstead Heath- with the theme of Close Up. So then you meet at the place, take photos for an hour then head to a pub. Then you talk show photos, drink, and send me your two best photos by that Wednesday. Then I put them up. Obviously I think that you should all put a fiver in and in that month you all vote for the best photo and that person gets it! what do you think?

Aids Day Concert

Proud Gallery Camden held Aids Day Staying Alive concert sponsored I think by MTV. Three newish bands played there.

I Blame Coco.
Although there was a feeling that these guys had just been swept together from some music school and moulded around the famous by proxy singer- is her name coco?
The youth surrounding us certainly liked them, and so did I. actually the more I listen to this song the more I really like it.

We Have Band
Its all about three name bands here it seems. These guys were good fun. It wasnt just we were a bit drunk by this time. honest.

The Plath Play

Not enough poetry on this site is there? To be honest I havent really checked into poetry for some years, but the upcoming opening of the Plath Play "Three Women" has reminded me. This is the first airing of this in the UK for thirty years or something, and though you dont expect it to be "Mama Mia" its surely a good night out.

Herr God, Herr Lucifer

Out of the ash
I rise with my red hair
And I eat men like air.

Lady Lazarus by Sylvia Plath

Each virile bachelor dreads paralysis,
The old maid in the gable cries all day:
Never try to trick me with a kiss.
Sooner or later something goes amiss;
The singing birds pack up and fly away;
So never try to trick me with a kiss:
The dying man will scoff and scorn at this.

Never Try To Trick Me With A Kiss by Sylvia Plath

xmas hits work

yuletide mother fuckers!

Thursday, November 27, 2008


Had to mention this place. Coming home from Dylan Moran and I was H*U*N*G*R*Y. Now it must be mentioned I live above a perfectly good Kebab shop, but when needs must, its down the road and around the corner for me to Crystal Kebabs.
Now not only do they over do the delicous bread, vege and meat stews and delicious lamicuns but they also drop in a couple of free rice puddings.

I know.

Free. Rice. Pudding.

Art Alert

Extended but absolutely going to end this weekend is a third form science project gone horribly wrong! Its going to be a long wait, you have to shed your own boots in favor of theirs and its south of the river but... it looks ace!

Roger Hiorns presents Seizure his most ambitious transformation yet to create a crystalic wonderland from a former dull old estate house.

To quote

British artist Roger Hiorns makes exceptional use of unlikely materials: detergent, disinfectant, perfume, fire and copper sulphate crystals. Transforming steel poles, car engines and cardboard architectural models into crystalline forms, Hiorns effects surprising, physical and aesthetic transformations on found objects.

Weekend Round up: Tinselworms, Pies and Pandas

Monday already! How to buffer myself from work/play? BLOG!
Yes its a bit early, but I bet there are people out there who want to know what I have done this weekend... surely?

Went for dinner at the old HK Diner, it had good write ups, and all in all not dissapointing, L's hot pot (pork Belly) was the best, then F's prawns was second, my duck was the worst but still quite tasty! Then we went to Bill Bailey

Which was ace, he was less absurd than I expected. And you could tell he was on the back of his American tour. But his best joke was distintly English, (Spoiler alert not too high though./.._) and the joke was about him cringing from the future about how embarrasing the olympic ceremony is going to be! haha, true bro...

Saturday and we tried some pies. Now as I am sure you know the UK is sadly lacking in decent pies, so when I see them I am always torn between running in fear, or running for the promise of savory goodness withing those thin pastry walls. So when at Broadway Market on a freezing Saturday I saw them- I went for it!

"Thanks, can I have a chilli steak pie and a steak and cheese please>?"

Now they had take away pies, that you could bring home- and they cost about £3.50 each. (NZ-ers will balk!) and to make matters worse- they microwave them! bah. But on a chilly day, it was a delicous, home made filling filled tasty treat.

And then Sunday we took a walk in Crouch End, where we found an excellent print shop, which just shows where our aspirations lie because we so wanted to bring home art. haha. This was one of my faves.

Mitch Mitchell RIP

So its a bit late, but its one of those things that needs to be blogged about.
One of the best drummers ever, the connection between jazz and rock, and how to be everywhere on the skins without overbearing the guitar.
Mr Mitch Mitchell

Its neate ayhe Aunt?

Adam Neate is turning London into an art gallery on Friday. A quick check into the auctions and one of his pics reached over 40k so even though he is going for a *ahem "Warholian" technique of not actually touching canvas there might be an investment to be made from walking around the streets of London at midnight scoping for free art.

“I’m interested in that Warhol idea of the brand as assisted readymade. Apart from creating the master image in stencil, I haven’t had to touch these works at any point in their production, even the signature is rubber-stamped – and although they’re multiples, each one is compositionally unique.”

Now although I am sure that this is not the reason why he is doing it, but I am sure I wont be the only night prowler!

pimp my loaf

Annoyed at myself for losing stuff, there was nothing to do on Sunday but to break bread...
L made some (!) bread! it is delicous, with basil and stuff! but although she looked at it wearily saying "thats a lot of mix" she loaded up the oven, and made 6 loaves! I know! Like jesus! only hot.

Remedy for a Chilly Thursday

I sat there wondering if there is really any point being there if I couldnt record it somehow for the blog. I mean sure I have a photo from the phone, but that lacks definition and obviously- movement and sound.

I thought of reviewers of the past and how they would rely on words and choice phrases to evoke the mood and setting of the night, but I think I can almost feel your eyes glaze over as my sentences grow...

But it was an old fasioned gig last night at the Old Queens Head. It was a lounge, with a glitterball; old leather couches; lushly upholsted lounging chairs and tables set up with plenty of room so you could sit and watch the band. It certainly is my new favourite venue. Even apart from the fact this was free it seemed to me had a real community feel to it, and I really enjoyed being able to sit back and listen to some live music! Each band had at least one amazing song, and although there was a screechy (and female singer) theme that ran between each band had stand out performances.

Here is my briefest take on the night
Young Paul
I mean they said it themselves when they said it was karaoke... Why is the mac the only thing I can hear? it's a common problem that the mac goes straight through the PA but the guitar just through the amp. At times I couldnt tell if it was plugged in. And I mean nice shirt and all but to me (and I know I am just being picky) wear your stage clothes all night, dont put the shirt on after soundcheck in front of everyone- wheres the magic? Stand out song was the one about the major chords.

Slightly wonky aethestic with guitarist and singer were glammed up and the rhytm section thought they didnt need to bother. However they held the band together with great restraint. Stand out song- the last one no doubt. I dont think its on their myspace? surely its a single. I was actually blown away by it (but I am a sucker for spectoresque intros)

The DeBrettes
"enjoy the show" she said, and I did- she was everywhere, however like a dog on a lead could only stretch as far as the lead would so we were safe, but I did think she shocked a rather sophisticated couple when she was on the table. Stand out song Rage was released at the start of Oct and produced by Gordon Raphael (BTW)

Chapter 24 rounded off the evening with surf guitar led choppy eccentric rhythms that would change without warning. I thought the singer was really cool for some strange sophisticate reason. Oh and young paul should note that the drummer wore his top hat all evening. oh and the girls were going to go until they turned the sign on- great little prop as with the teapot.

Hey and the website for the old queens head (which is really rather good) was apparently created by delete so if you want some, come and get it!

William Blakes Grave

You know how it is, you get use to a place and then from out of nowhere peers something you have never seen? well we were heading to brick lane on Sunday, the clouds split just enough to leave dappled light on one of the best poet/engraver's in the world's grave...

oh- cool new artist

With his Victorian etchings with a penchant for duplicity the dark fantasy art of Dan Hillier lept out at me in the up market. Check him out!


ok, well so without turning this in to a coffee blog, had great coffee at this place in brick lane yesterday. Nude. Which no one was nude so apart from that let down had a great flat white just over the road from the upstart market on Hanbury street. Hey its good!

More Human than Human

Had a lovely breakfast with L. today (there was no milk at home!)

Hammersmith Tube Station is an unlikely place for a peaceful and pleasant dining experience, but Antonias really captures something with its hideaway position and fabulous service. Lunch is great as well with a choice of al dante pasta and tasty toppings. So if yr hungry around there> snubb Mcdonalds with its 5am start (!) and disregard pret, head to something human!

PS photos from the iphone- not too shabby with a small size hey?

Ringing the Changes

Its a sad day as the art is washed away, to swirl into storm drains, filtered down to be one day drunk by someone... hmmm not too bad I suppose!

Wash em down!

all mortal until the first kiss and the second glass of wine

OK so its Jewellery time! Having just returned from Murano I am amped to make things. Oh here is an ace shop that I got my mum a necklace from, and thought you might like to have a look as well...

But I have just received 50 microscope slides, that I intend to make into brooches. I still need a few items (solder iron, clamp, pictures!) but the slides themselves are a step in the right direction. Looking on the net everyone uses stained glass foiled tape to hold the two slides together before you solder- but where am I meant to get that from? Obviously the "misc..." shops in seven sisters road will probably hold them! I am hoping they have solder irons!!

Rhyming slang learn during the weekend: Bag= bag of sand- Grand. £1000.

I am still looking for somewhere with a kiln to let me make glass bricks!

John Soames Rocks!

cleptomaniac, originally uploaded by gfitz36.

So ma has arrived, we have crossed off a few things from the list, old hallows, tate, trafelgar square, jewell tower, westminster abbey etc. But it was John Soames Museum that really blew my mind, so great to walk around the house to see what those fancy houses look like inside, and then the sheer volume of his collection is overwhelming. But for me the jewel is the collection of the hogarth "A rakes progress".
oh and the sweet t towel for a fiver. watch out people xmas presents coming yr way!

Havent seen Bex yet, but you know itsgoing to happen

Blogs around the world

Loving Blogs around the world at the moment, the puddlelicious crew has grown today. if you feel like reaching around this dark internet for a spark of inspiration, check some out now!_ oh wait, read me first- read me first-/oo\

I have been thinking. Lots of things really, and I know I dont usually rant here but do you know what? Posts have been pretty thin on the ground, and if I expect people to read me (I dont actually but you know what I mean) then I have to write something.

Now, like a lot of people, I want to get me an iphone. this is mainly because of the maps function, I just get a kick out of seeing -electronically- where i am- which would probably be a pub, and I could look out the window, but I will be showing everyone where we are on the phone... (I know how lucky my friends are!)... So you can then choose to see the restaurants around you- but (obviously) only the ones that have signed up and become iphone ap. 101 savy. Which is ok at the moment, but as the money begins to come in for this, it will soon only be the places that are chosen to be sponsored by which ever app it is.
Which brings me to my point. We are living in the wild west of the internet, but the later stages of the pioneering spirit. Very soon, our choices of what we want to view- or what we can view, will be limited by our providers in much the same way. I actually think that we will have to pay for the sort of things that we now just bump into, like peoples blogs- or user generated content. so a nominal fee for the huge products- but a larger fee for wanting to view content made from independant users.

the end, in short is nigh.

On the upside, I have sunburnt shoulders for the first time all year. Its September people!

This week sees the return of Bex- and the intial arrival of my mother!

and its a short week.

Pubs and Drinking
learn how to make a martini £18
Old Gin Bars
In Soho, the Argyll Arms (18 Argyll Street, W1; 020 7734 6117) boasts Victorian etched mirrors, snob screens and mahogany; the original layout is intact too – a corridor leads to the large back saloon past three small snug bars. For knockout Victoriana, the Albert (52 Victoria Street, SW1; 020 7222 5577) is a fabulous confection of hand-cut glass, carved dark wood and old gaslight fittings, built in the 1860s to honour the empress’s departed prince.
The City is where many old-timers of the London pub world are still standing. For example, the Viaduct Tavern (126 Newgate Street, EC1; 020 7600 1863), an 1869 pub, is just across the road from the Old Bailey. Up in north London is the Island Queen (87 Noel Road, N1; 020 7704 7631). Swathed in wood and etched glass, it celebrates nautical glory with a wave-damaged wooden figurehead, palm leaves and prints of ships; a vast island bar presides over the middle of the lofty single room.
Best of the lot, though, is the Prince Alfred (5a Formosa Street, W9; 020 7286 3287). The beautiful old tiling and exquisitely curved frosted glass frontage barely prepare you for the architectural delights within: a complex series of snugs with a fabulously ornate half-moon dark-wood bar as centrepiece. The snugs (free to hire!) once kept the proles apart from the toffs, and stand now as fascinating testimony to the British class system.
On Carting Lane, a gloomy side street off the Strand between the Savoy and the ShellMex building, you can find London’s last remaining sewer-powered gas lamp, still giving out its queasy yellow glow around the clock, thanks to a hollow iron column that allows sewer vapours to travel to its flame. Lit by the capital’s slurry since the 1880s, this Patent Sewer Ventilating Lamp represents Victorian ingenuity at its best.

Bar Polski (11 Little Turnstile, WC1; 020 7831 9679)
N1 real ale casks
Charles Lamb
Tequila Club

Day Trips from London Ideas
St Albans
Leeds Castle
Arundel Castle

just bear it in mind

status report

We have a vegetarian mouse! he only likes to dig in our little (inside) garden and nibble on our baby tomato plant! He ignored the chocolate or other goodies around, and digs a small maze below the ground. I think its cute. I am also going to use it to kill him, my plan is to put some peanut butter and tomato plant on a mousetrap hidden in a paper bag and slightly submerged with the mouth of the bag opened invitingly.

Then in the morning I can pick up the bag with the poor little mousey inside and throw him in the rubbish with no ceremony.

A state of war has been declared.

Shock! Half past July and still no entry?

Rain and Crowd, originally uploaded by turoasaur.

I joined up to Expat today (check them out by clicking the logo on the left).

Now although I am loathe to use the term expat or O.E but this site is fantastic for the casual blog stalker. Its USP is you can ask questions of the blogger about the places you may want to move to or visit etc. I think this is awesome!

Anyway, mid July what have I done? This photo is at Wimbledon Tennis ground on the mens final. as these menacing clouds took over the skies, the crowd ran in almost manic fashion! it was quite amusing. I like the drama of those black clouds!

Not that I have been there, but now I really want to go!! Oh yeah!

check out this vid of a design to use a sky scraper to generate electricity, and look as trippy as you like!

New Tate Membership

I belong!, originally uploaded by turoasaur.

L has graciously renewed my Tate membership! Woohoo! The upcoming year sees Francis Bacon, Rothco, Echakhch and many more.

Life in the Kitchen

DSC_0004, originally uploaded by turoasaur.

we are begining to grow our own food, and finally being like Tom and Barbara.

When I say we, my role is obviously minimal, consisting of comunication with the plants, to ensure a healthy mind set before I eat them. L takes care of most of the rest.

I think they are lettuce?

you have to heart where you live

London rocks. I mean if you are floundering around for something to blog about (AND LETS FACE IT- Telling you about my dinner is not going to get me an audience!) then all you have to do is grab your camera and hit the streets on any given evening. I suppose you have to be in the mood for it, but I went out last night with the lovely L. and everything was blog tastic.

We went to the Cy Twombly exhibition at the Tate Modern last night. We walked over, and then under Blackfriars Bridge and I noticed this frightening sign.

Defo bloggable, think about it for a second... why do you need a licence?
anyway, This is our first time to the tate since all of the art has appreared outside the gallery...

We hit the bar as soon as we got there, a nice bottle of wine and we even had a seat on the river side, which is usually packed.

The exhibition was quite something. The first few rooms I felt assaulted! It was like the vicous slashings of a maniac, the scribbles, the thick pastings of oil, the plaster of paris sculptings, really did not agree with me. I was getting more and more anxious, I felt myself being wound up tighter and tighter with every painting. thankfully, the curators calmed you down with room 3, which was two huge complimenting canvases. I really enjoyed the last two rooms, the penultimate was emerald greens smeered over cream painted wooden boards. I found it looked very Japense, like a bush covered river. And the last room was the famous shots that are on the literature for this exhibition.

Then we walked down the embankment, found a strange garden dedicated to NZ plants! There even was Pohutakawa trees! And this (not native but popular in NZ) Plant; the red hot poker.To give its scientific genus name.

And as we were kicked out of this park for drinking, we sat in the Trafalgar Square, which I think is one of the strangly romantic spots in the city. I took these two photos that I really like.

This fountain was apparently built to stop crowds gathering in too concentrated numbers when protesting, as some of the biggest English protests took place here.

and this is just a photo I liked.

A Ducks Life

Early Sunday morning we levered ourselves out of bed, jumped on the bikes and made our way to Hampstead Heath with strawberries and yogurt in our stomachs. In the space between the clouds, the sun shone through. Though it was fleeting it warmed instantly.
Hampstead Lido is a lovely pool, 50 metres, (*which is large when trying lengths!)
Its cold though! 18 degrees, man oh man, took me a while to get in. And there were two ducks in the middle! just bobbing along, people still swimming, and the ducks just shuffling in their wake. Madness. Can you spot the duck in this photo?

Thursday, June 12, 2008

Does anyone really care what I am having for dinner?

Come on London, its mid June for crying out loud. stop fucking rainging!
well its threating quite wildly out there now, with earthquake looking clouds awaiting. Although with Wimbledon just around the corner, we all should know better.

Anyway back to my dinner. Last night L. invented a completly new salad involving crazy beans, smoked fish and olives, so its my turn to invent something tasty and healthy. I am going to make chicken w/ tomatoes, asparagus and rosemary in little tinfoil parcels. should/could be nice. if you really want I will put photos in tomorrow haha.

ok, an hour to go til the football, and it looks like rain.

Ian Seigal hits the 100 club.

Hung over again! I plan not to go out tonight- "but its Friday>?!" I hear you say!! well shut up you, you're the last one I need to hear from, its people like you that make me wind up holding my head against pillows.

But last night was fun! woohoo! Out in one of the only sunny afternoons London has had for a while. Had a few beers on the bus (its illegal you know- as of the first of June- what-ever) the 94 from Shepherds Bush to Oxford Street. Then shoe horned myself through the human sausage maker that is Oxford Street. Grabbed a couple more beers and sent myself and A. to Soho Square. As is usual that place was packed. Its impossible for two men not to look gay in that square. Then off to the famous 100 Club. Looking at all the photos on the wall, its obvious how important this place is to the musical heritage of London. Its such a gem of history.

I was there for Ian Seigal. I love his dancing and snake boots.

Here is an addictive number countdown cut with a lot of patience from films.

Live at the Forum, 27/5/8. Was a good gig, dispite the first set from the newest three albums, and I didnt even know it was them playing!

a muggy london day- where is summer?

This week is lagging even though its a day shorter! where is the justice?

I have found new blogs of note today and have entered them over there in the land of blogs and other sites you should visit before you die.

In other news I am reading Michael Chabon's "Kavalier & Clay", and although not yet a third of the way in, I am very excited with it. Being the third MC Book I have read this year (!) I am a fan! READ HIM! And of course the cover art is excellent in this new =WARNING SHAMELESS PLUG WITHIN= format by HarperCollins.

Friday, May 23, 2008

Long weekend!

woohoo! not that I have had such a long week this week!
Minehead was awesome, just the best time, watching bands, hanging out at the chalet, waterslides, more bands. pretty cool.

Highlights were ghostface killer and silver jews. good fun.

I burnt my mouth so took a couple of days off getting better, and here i am on a Friday before bank holiday haha.

I am off to the Ministry gig on Tuesday. Thats going to Rock!

I will put some pix and videos up when we add them to you tube. the ones on at the moment have awful sound quality!


Thursday, May 15, 2008

off to the parties tomorrow

ALL Tomorrows Parties.

Minehead. Tomorrow. Party. Tomorrow. Minehead.

How exciting is it going to be? pretty damn exciting.
The gig starts and ends really really well. Constantines first and ends with Envy.

Soon enough- great song, the video is obviously fan made but I like it.

and to end, Japanese hardcore band Envy

and heres some of those crazy NZers...

falling down...

Sun floods the desk as I type these words. May bursts into its second week with sun and smiles and job interviews.

Just heard this for the first time, and as a dedicated Scarlet fan thought I would highlight her debut single.

I think its pretty awesome.
Of course if you dont know the original it should sound like this.

So really no comparrison between them, but scarlets does have a low fi attractiveness...

Friday, April 25, 2008

Of course the music is a great difficulty. You see, if one plays good music, people don't listen, and if one plays bad music people don't talk

Went to the Vaudeville theatre last night, watched Importance of being Earnest with Penelope Keith. Awesome. She is great, the others were cool, theatre is just fun.
And I love the old buildings, and ordering your interval drinks, and how they have boxes for the stubbs of everyones tickets so to easily tell if a seats been double booked. Magic.

oh I took a photo of the roof, but bloggers not letting me post.
will edit it later, coz I am sure you are keen!

come back and check!

Hey- its FRIDAY!

Wednesday, April 23, 2008

23 April 2008. London.

23 April is always a big day in my family. Hayds birthday yesterday- Happy Birthday bro! Nicks birthday tomorrow- again Happy Birthday bro!
And today is a special day as well. Friday is of course ANZAC day and I am not sure to go to the service or not?! I would like to because its always good to make an effort, it is on my bike ride to work and I haven’t seen the Paul Dibble statue yet.

I don’t want to go because- its too early! I will have to be at work an extra 2 hours early, its always borringly christian (as if the church isnt responsible enough for encouraging them to go fight for the motherland in uh, Turkey) and L. is planning to make ANZAC biscuits! YUM! Which means if I want to see the service I will miss the cookies!

apologies for relying on wikipedia a bit heavily there. Pictures of buscuits to follow.

Here is some art for sale at the Animation Art Gallery that I want to buy. One is affordable at only a hundred quid, and one is a bit much for me thank you very much at four hundred. But oh well!
