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.
