This is not a test. Unless it is, and no one told me so I haven't revised, which means I'm going to fail. Thanks for that.

It;s fresh and it's new*, it's a mixtape for you

Pour vous, a Spotify mixtape: V&M's comp

Named for the folk who I originally made the mixtape for (and who left it in a van by accident - but that's another story). Lacking in the punk rawk sound you might expect from a blog named 'Travelling Punk', but conventions are for folks in suits who carry laptops.

Sadly missing the following tracks off the original pressing, not available on Spotify**:
Behave - Slumber Party
Angryman - The Bees
Morning Sun - The Beautiful Girls
Little plastic castles - Ani Difranco
Modern girl - Sleater Kinney
Oregon - The Maybellines
Plastic girls - The Minds


* It's SNFU, with Erics had a bad day...

** Oh Spotify, why you lemme down like-a this?

This weekend I...

  • Took 4 hours to get from Nottingham to Sheffield via the M1. The motorway was closed because of an accident
  • Saw a pheasant explode under the wheels of a car
  • Lost a false tooth when I 'held' the rope in my mouth as I was about to clip at the climbing wall. Luckily it came off into my mouth and was not lost forever
  • Made my wrists and elbows ache bouldering in the cold at Burbage North
  • Enjoyed my last days of climbing outdoors for a while - I'm going to be out of the game for a month after having laser eye surgery this week.
  • Eek.

The universe is in control. Is out of control.
I might try and choose my destination, attempt to plan my route, but forces outside of my control affect the path and influence the outcome.
Financial system

A fork in the road.

On the way to work this morning I was caught gurning in frustration at myself by a Paul O'Gady look-a-like.

While out running before work I was also spotted dancing on a pedestrian island (while waiting for traffic to pass - not just for fun).
