Look I can paint a kitchen (before you say anything it's not finished in the pictures), i'm officially useful in a menial capacity. A long and monotonous task made bearable by playing Lethal Bizzle at ridiculously high volumes.
Oh yeah i have a really bad punchline to go with the title of this post but it's so bad I couldn't possible share.

Well thats it for oiNK. Wasn't a member myself but still indebted to its work. I'm not bothered about the evils of piracy, all i know is i can't afford all the music i desire so i download it. Musicians aren't losing out from me because piracy isn't stopping me from buying music simply allowing me to experience more.

So aside from meeting deluded middle aged Oasis fans i've not really done anything of note other than develop an addiction to eBay once again. A sea of cheap DVDs and N64 games is currently flowing through my door. The crowning glory of this ocean of other peoples tat is a fully boxed copy of WWF No Mercy for the N64, it truly is the single greatest game ever.
Right thats your lot for now i've got some job applications to fill out on paper of all things, how retro!

The most amazing can opener ever, put in on the can, one touch and it spins around the can. Perfect for lazy bastards like me, an end to all that tiresome turning.
Now i'm gonna watch The Peter Serafinowicz Show and i suggest you should do the same.

Well summers as good as over with the return of September but this is a new kind of September for it is the first since like 1991 that I haven't been starting a new year of education. It's the end of one of the most significant periods of my life and to be honest one I’m glad to see the back of, all that learning was getting me down now I can get to work forgetting it all. Although I’d gladly swap a testicle for another year of the student lifestyle as long as I didn't have to do any work.
Despite having no job and so no money I’m still managing to spend an awful lot of it. Got a new suit for graduation, it's the first one I’ve had that wasn't pieced together from various charity shops and it actually fits! Got a nice pair of shoes as well, the first since I left school vowing never to wear shoes again. I think 5 years wearing only trainers and work boots is pretty good going.
In another act of wreckless spending I got a new MP3 player. I lost the cable for my old one ages ago so instead of getting a new cable like a normal person I bought a whole new player and you can't have a new player without new music which luckily for my bank balance I didn't buy because I’ve been killing music for as long as I can remember (home taping was bad ass piracy). I'll do a music post later cos I really should go and get dressed, it's nearly 3pm and I’m still in my dressing gown and nightcap.

The Tossers - Where Ya Been Johnny
Think The Pogues but from Chicago and still making quality music and you've just about got a grasp on The Tossers. This tracks from their latest album 'Agony'.
David Allan Coe - Longhaired Redneck
Outlaw country at its finest, sure he might be a little racist but he's from Texas so what do you expect and anyway it doesn't detract from the quality of his song writing. Although not commercially successful as a recording artist his songs provided hits for many of Nashville's biggest stars. This tune cracks me up every time.
The Fighting Cocks
I can't anything other than what's on their MySpace to pike for free so i might actually have to buy a CD for a change. Looked into them cos they're playing the Lounge on the Farm festival in Canterbury in July that i may or may not be going to. Don't know how to describe them really other than different, you'll have to make up your own mind.
Thats it for now but i might add some more later, so download, enjoy then tell us what you think.

Anyway i'm in a good mood today, mostly cos i actually feel human again after the party but also because it actually feels like summer now. Ever since i we all started school summer was a big deal, it was time do whatever for 6 weeks but not anymore. This summer i actually have to get a job and become an adult, bollocks!
I've still got a few weeks in Chi to relax like old times starting with the inevitable soundtrack to the summer. It's coming together nicely already (most of it thanks to my brother), here's what i've got so far
Cansei de Ser Sexy - 'Alcohol'
Justice - 'D.A.N.C.E'
Steve Earle - 'Condi, Condi'
David Allan Coe - 'Longhaired Redneck'
Sonny Jim - 'Can't stop moving'
Rebel Meets Rebel - 'Cowboys do more dope'
Gogol Bordello - 'Supertheory of Supereverything'
Dizzee Rascal - 'Sirens'
Anyone got any recommendations?
Here's to the last summer ever

So what have i done in the last two weeks? Same as i have done for years, drink, smoke, watch TV and play on my Xbox. Why should i change instantly after Uni, i've got the rest of my life to get a shitty job and be miserable so why rush into it?
The last 2 weeks contained vast quantities of
- Prison Break - What a quality show this is, only watched season 1 but i'm already in love with it. Only thing is you have too turn your brain off and dribble cos if your don't you'll over think it and realise how stupid it really is.
- Xbox - Been playing Pro Evo 4 almost constantly with bits of Amped and Project Gotham Racing thrown in for good measure, still got Max Payne 2 to start as well. The first thing i did after Uni finished was get down to Gamestation and get all 4 for £10.
- Sleep - Still as much fun as ever
So what have i got planned for next week? Well more of the same really just with Heroes instead of Prison Break.
Oh and the new Megadeth album is much better than i thought it would be, i even like the new version of A Tout Le Monde.
So until we meet again.

Spiders flushed from boy's ear
A NINE-year-old American boy who was suspicious of a "Rice Krispie" sound in his ear, was found to have a couple of spiders living in there.

However i refuse to get bogged down in the sadness, i'm gonna celebrate this week rather than mourn it so i expect to see each and everyone of ya in the bar at some point to join me for a drink or many.
Now for me to actually start this last ever essay.
Wednesday, May 02, 2007

If i see ya tomorrow don't expect me to do more than mutter something about tired.

Right time for a little rant about something unimportant but still enough to irritate me. I've been looking forward to the film 'Grindhouse' for a while now, it's been out in America since April but i'm used to waiting on stuff to make it here, no big deal.
What is a big deal is when they go messing about with the very thing that makes the film an interesting concept rather than a simple B-Movie. Grindhouse is really 2 movies in one with an intermission and fake trailers in between. Its a celebration of the B-Movie double feature of old that is sadly missing from modern cinemas. However the film tanked at the US box office so to try and rescue the situation Harvey Weinstein in his infinite wisdom has decided to release the films separately in the UK.
Now i don't know about you but i was looking forward to sitting on my ass for 3 hours with a vat of popcorn and a bucket of coke. Unless i find a cinema showing them back to back i ain't going to bother, why should i pay twice to see the whole spectacle just because they need to recoup their losses.
Right rant over.
I should really start my essay now, 3000 words for Friday but before i do i'm gonna give a few of these Zombie Games another go. Oh try this one as well, Zombie Grinder

We don't know if he has a history of mental illness, but he's clearly not a well boy.'
So until the novelty wears off i'll be filling this with random stuff i find on the internet and maybe a few rambling thoughts of my own.
