Christ, least you could do is mention the address of the other page. Meanwhile, hope NYC treated you well -- or least gave you tit for my tat, as it were. As you'll recall I was on your turf last year. Etc. Happy dancing...
from idiot-milk :
What is this "opendiary" of which you speak? Or rather, where might one find your own particular corner on this opendiary? If you don't mind my asking, that is. And if you do, well, never mind. That is all. Carry on.
from fightn4life :
Yes I would love to read on...that was intriging. I hope you win. Sandyz
from anisettekiss :
And he confirms his presence. Very impressive.
from anisettekiss :
*gasp* He lives!!!
from somthin :
Ha ha, thanks anyhow... I never check my notes either. Came and went from UK, good time had except for the airline bomb scare deal that kept everyone on edge and carrying their under things in plastic bags. Frieze art fair, sent stuff there, even had a ticket to fly but couldn't get there at last minute, alas, gallery life. Bloody stupid, really. Maybe next year, approximately the next time we check our notes... oh, and may I recommend The Boot for cheap eats and a loud and lively pint -- near Russell Square, as I recall.
from heelandlass :
So what's the name of the flipping show? And congratulations on the win(s). xxx
from anisettekiss :
If I had any right to tell you what to do, I'd tell you to write more often. xxx
from somthin :
Dear Mousemilk, I'll be in London sometime in the next few weeks and was wondering if there is anything of general interest that you'd suggest I should visit -- clubs, galleries, etc. I haven't been there in sometime and might be a bit at a loss. Thanks ever so much, JP
from girlsdontcry :
In that case I'm going to start telling people I'm on the cup. Although that's a bit too close to in my cups... oh dear.
from boogityx2 :
XM satellite radio. I don't think it's available in the UK yet. Boo.
from the-moo :
thanks for the "cor" it was much appriciated! ;-)
from heelandlass :
Oh and no problem re: CD chain. Thanks for starting it. And as the creator aren't you supposed to send everybody your CD? Or did I make that up? Yes I did.
from heelandlass :
You are one of the few people who would unashamedly write the word 'cock' on someone else's notes. So I'm doing the same. Jackoman..I reckon you could bring out your own fanzine or something.
from pollymagoo :
You are, of course, quite right, and when I used to live in the 1960s (in 1996-2000) I liked R&B a lot. Now it is something else altogether I am completely appalled by it.
from heelandlass :
Absolutely. It's the whole point of it. And he's so easy to sing along to - especially after too many fags and wines. 'And if a double decker bus, crashes into us, tra la la la la la, well the pleasure, the privelage is mine' etc. Tremendous.
from dinahsoar :
Accidentally fell into your diary and find myself in no great hurry to climb back out.
from pollymagoo :
God I just had to edit because I realised I made it sound awful. Jeff Lewis is playing at 93 ft East tomorrow. He's going to think I'm stalking him.
from heelandlass :
You were pretty close eh? Was it just a one band gig or were there others? I would like to see British Sea Power again actually, I think I will look into that. Thank you for sending me things and helping me remember my weekend!
from heelandlass :
I mean Clapham. What the hell is wrong with me today?!
from heelandlass :
Ooh exciting. I will look at it right after I finish doing this very boring work that i'm doing. I wondered why you had named those photos camden or whatever it was you called them. How did you know they had the bear on stage at the festival, are you septic?
from heelandlass :
I checked out your photys, thanks for that. I had totally forgotten about that bear! He was was a bit of a ramshackle panto bear now I think about it, the band were having fun drop kicking it from a great height! They were really great actually, the more I think about it and they looked like they had a good time at the festival. And at the point they were playing, it really was wet which seemed kind of apt. Nobody cared either, we just kept on drinking and dancing as you'd expect. I even went over to talk to them, which is mortifyingly embarrassing, espesh because I had almost no voice left and had to start off my shpeel with 'excuse me, sorry I've got a bit of a fucked up voice but please don't worry, I just wanted to tell you I really enjoyed your set'. That's got me on their list of favourite fans I can tell you! I didn't see Brakes I'm afraid, I didn't find out about the connection till after I was at the festival but I will defo go and see them when/if they play in Edinburgh soon. And the Bees really are ace. They made me very happy. I would like to be trapped in that weekend for another few days so I could re-visit everything and perhaps catch some of the bands that I missed. Think you can work some mousemilk magic for that to happen? Thanks for the photies, I am going to link them if that's alright?
from starzero :
bill drummond, one-time manager of echo & the bunnymen and the teardrop explodes, tried to retire from the music industry when he was 33 1/3 yrs old. his friend james cauty dragged him back, eventually to become the klf. at 45 he wrote a book about his life, mostly about the music biz and adventures with jimmy. he plans write another one when he's 78. i am a font of utterly useless information.
from girlsdontcry :
I have emailed, hope it made it through.
from waspman :
If you wish to know what a meme is, I can tell you that it is a cultural 'bug', if you will, something that appears in one place, and quickly spreads throughout society. Much like syphilis, but much nicer. See, that contemporary art degree i did was something useful after all...
from girlsdontcry :
Am I first, am I? I didn't even read the whole thing, I just saw sign first... now I'll go back and find out what this means.
from heelandlass :
Yes, I have one of those big, light, strange-shaped, high-ceilinged echoey-communal-staired stoney beauties. Impossible to heat in the winter and sweltering in the summer. Lunatic neighbours are par for the course, seeing as people move into those flats and then NEVER move out again, they age with the stonework and go all bonkers!. Nice dream lyrics by the way! Now you just need to dream yourself up some pans people style dancers and you've got yourself an entertaining evening!
from no-map :
Hey hey.. i have friends with eyewitness stories and since nobody on here knows them that mkes them my very own scabby second hand horror stories I suppose!!! meh! It was all too surreal for me I just couldn't take in that it was actually real! Anyway yes.... you left me a comment... and I was wondering.. which friend in particular caught your eye! I swear Im not a pimp.. I just wondered!! x
from heelandlass :
Good Oh. Horrible news. Speak to you soon x
from heelandlass :
Are you alright?
from anathema- :
I am ashamed to leave a note based on a comment on someone else's page, but I'm going to do it anyway. "I spell behaviour with a 'u', not because I suck, but because that is how it is spelt in nations where the public's brains aren't atrophying at a rate that necessitates removing progessively more and more letters from words so that the slack-jawed, supersize-hoovering, non-passport-holding populace can still understand them." Well said/written. You rock.
from waspman :
So... Uninspired by Live 8 also, huh? I watched Brad Pitt, then switched off. Thaks for leaving me a note. I hear that you are very popular and very busy. Apparently. And in response, No, I am not a Geordie. And Chavs and Charvers are different things. Apparently.
from leemr :
hello! thank you for leaving a note on my music site that wasn't a complaint. come back at the start of July and it won't look half as dreadful and there will be even more goodness. if you get carried away and want to be included on the mailing list, email me at [email protected]
from pollymagoo :
Ok, I'll get the camera out tonight. I have some particularly hott tan lines and sunburnt places at the moment, as well as a very sexy ENORMOUS BRUISE on my thigh. Changed your mind? Good. Who were you seeing at Shepherds Bush? Some bands have very suspicious fans.
from heelandlass :
You'll need a big pot of vaseline then and I better give you the email address for the bad boy pills. Let me know how you get on! www.badboypillsgivebigblueballs.co.uk. xxx
from saru-san :
The Tradimento entry is brilliant! Just... brilliant. I am in awe.
from girlsdontcry :
Why don't you update more often, hmm?
from pollymagoo :
Bollocks I just deleted your comment by mistake while going 'ooh, what's this delete comments feature?' I hope you don't wander by my comments page later and get offended. Write it again, if you want. Note: this is not part of a scam to get people to leave me more comments so I get loads of e-mails and feel dead popular. Really.
from anisettekiss :
You. I read your answers to Incredipete's survey. You're a very naughty young man... *low whisper* but I like it.
from wicked-rvws :
hi i am millie from wicked-reviews... im just trying to spread the word out that ive created a diary review site... come get reviewd!
from onewetleg :
i'm sorry, i just read your comment 'do you work in a prison giftshop' and nearly peed myself laughing. thank you for making me laugh. you're the best!
from lollygrass :
Hi, I just found your blog and I think you're hilarious. Thanks for being a good blogger, my favorite thing is to find non-inferior blogs. heh -stepha
from hubbabub :
Thanks so much for the suggestions! You made my morning. Which, incidentally, was a morning that needed to be made.
from pollymagoo :
Goodness these notes are flirty. Am I interrupting? Yes, looks like it's just you. Are you seeing Joanna Newson at Queen Elizabeth hall in April?
from anisettekiss :
hmmm. I have no way of sending either. It will have to be a mystery to you. I too shy to outright say it.
from pollymagoo :
Your neighbours really only had themselves to blame. Because what chance did that have of working? I think the death of the chihuahua was probably the best case scenario. Imagine if one of them had impregnated it.
from anisettekiss :
I promise to comfort you rotten as long as you know I'll take advantage of your fragile state and "something else" you rotten.
from hubbabub :
Your mad trivia skillz are quite impressive. Do look me up should you ever venture to Seattle and we can play the circuit-- raking in millions! I'm already drunk with power at the the very thought of it.
from anisettekiss :
Cream? How completely beautiful and odd...I am confused and delighted on so many levels right now. lol.
from anisettekiss :
Thank you for the gentle rocking and cooing. I needed it and will gladly return the kind gesture. Repeatedly. Until your eyes blurr with delight and you beg me to halt. xxx -Jenna
from themark :
And whoa--is that a *design element* I see at the top of your diary? It's about time!
from themark :
Try as I might, I can't stop laughing at the thought of George Peppard's lifeless body busting out of his coffin in a makeshift armored vehicle. (Oddly enough, it reminds me of Charlton Heston's "dead" body stiffly leading his troops into battle on horseback at the end of EL CID. His men start fighting but his horse just keeps on running. Suckers! This is perhaps the most unintentionally funny moment in cinema history.)
from idiot-milk :
I envy your immune system, my friend. If someone sneezes three states away, I get the plague within 48 hours.
from anisettekiss :
Thank you for the hugs, Darling. I love you, yeah, yeah, yeah. ;)
from beatpoetgrrl :
smartass. thank you.
from comma-abuse :
But seriously? The laughing never stops with you. It's utterly fucking fantastic considering I really have nothing else to do. Aside from bake, maybe. Would you like some cookies?
from anisettekiss :
Darling, I'm waiting patiently for you to update.
from drbigbeef :
Just found your page thanks to the always excellent kristintracy. Keep up the good work.
from girlsdontcry :
So I make my boss wear the bandana to humiliate him, and threaten him with the gun if he won't do it? That's brilliant, he will look dead ridiculous and everyone will laugh at him. Hurrah, thank you.
from anisettekiss :
"You know, it may just be that someone has taken each individual tooth in your mouth and attached a clamp or a vice of some sort, and tightened it mercilessly." Again your wisdom leaves me speechless... *sigh*
from normaltoilet :
Dear Mr gay-geography-teacher-mousemilk, wow that was quite a rant you put on for us over here on the "other" continent. What i'm wondering though is if you have as much disdain for Canadians as you do for Americans? What about someone like me who is both?
from anisettekiss :
"Why do I never get that kind of offer from someone on the same land mass as me?" Because you are followed by a dark, dark cloud. But you should come over here. U.S. gals LOVE accents.
from anisettekiss :
"3b.Why is everyone getting some but me?" Hmmm. That's a tough one... wanna hop across the pond and see how you do over here. I'll give you a romp. *sm00ch*
from anisettekiss :
Ooops. I forgot your compliment. Here it is: I like you just the way you are. xxx
from anisettekiss :
HEY BABY!!! xxx
from satellitebob :
and the spring rolls would love me long time, if i were to buy one. the spree's newest album, together we're heavy, is actually really good. live they are best though.
from arletterocks :
Mm. So the teeth-grinding answer is "reduce stress," which I think is a euphemism for "Just go ahead and commit suicide since you're already killing yourself with the type-A behavior that you can't let go of even when you're unconscious." Mmm. Cheering.
from werdx :
i can't explain the arcade fire. so i'll let someone else. (the arcade fire) are "exactly what you would expect a band to sound like if its members were collectively raised on early rockíníroll, Motown, Bob Dylan, the Cure, the Pixies, New Order, Talking Heads, Brian Eno and the Sugarcubes, with informal educations in pre-Renaissance medieval music, Canadian folk, and Texan big band while studying electro-acoustic music and recording the entire Constellation Records roster. As Howard Bilerman puts it mildly, The Arcade Fire are not five kids who listened to the same ten indie rock records."
from arletterocks :
So how does one stop grinding one's teeth, other than wearing humiliating mouthpieces that make one drool even more than one usually does while asleep?
from comma-abuse :
DDR is the thingy! The dance thingy! Dance Dance Revolution. In arcades and such, and there's arrows on the screen and you hop about and call it dancing. The thing that's getting all the American children unfat, says CNN. The game. Yes. I can't explain things very well. I'm not any less disoriented now than I was with the last note, but I think that's a constant thing with me, maybe. And yay! Full marks. I'm going to stop again, because, you know, I can't seem to make a proper note ever.
from comma-abuse :
I am leaving a note. Because notes are absolutely lovely. Truly they are. I don't have anything in mind for this note. I do love your diary. I suppose that's the usual thing you say in notes, right? Unless they're rude, random notes meant to insult you. But this one isn't. I wish I could be more coherent, and mayhap slightly less scary, but I'm really very tired and also sort of sweaty. That would be the DDR. Have you ever tried sticking the DDR pads to walls with the sticky thingies they provide and playing by hitting is spastically? ...Have you tried DDR, for that matter? I am talking like I know you very well or something. I've probably ruined any nice impressions I could have given. Agh. (Stopping.)
from heelandlass :
oh frig - I thought i'd added you as a favourite but i lost you and now I have to catch up on you. bugger.
from betchy :
YOU'RE WELCOME. AND I REALLY LIKE THAT ENTRY ABOUT THE PRICE OF YOUR SHOPPING. IT REALLY MAKES YOU THINK!
from under-yuki :
Ohhh, ideal. Although technically you'd need to be free on the 9th and every day after that. It's sort of a captive lifestyle. However, you will be provided with water puddles and a leaf to recreate your natural habitat. Mayhap some booze, depending on your country of origin and whether or not they enjoy getting rat-assed drunk.
from albannach :
It's half joke, half in earnest, actually... Alright that's just what I tell people. ;) It remains the most beautiful place I have ever visited. Of course, one of my good friends from England put it to me this way: "Yes, but then you have to be around Scottish people." I LOVE it there. Why do you ask? How are you?
from kristintracy :
Anyone who mentions R2D2 and William Cosby in the same e-breath = Kristin's best friend! For that, I thank you. And, while I am here, I would like to say that yes, we do call cell phones "MOH-bl" phones, as opposed to "MOH-bile" phones. I call mine my celly, though, because, well, mostly because I'm an idiot.
from heelandlass :
I have just read your sniff, is that you or the dog entry. It made my shoulders go up and down with laughing in a way that only mums do and I spat out tea on the computer when I read your list of the day. That has pleased me. I have a pathalogical hatred for Lulu/LouLou it actually gives me heart burn. Minging. xxx
from chadly7 :
I read and enjoyed '100 Minutes'. Most excellent! Keep up the great writing.
from joecartoon :
Orienteering?? What is that? Oh, and you check your googles by going to you profile page, clicking on "your stats" then clicking on referrers (and probably go back 24 hours). If any of those links shows http://www.google.whatever....///asldkfslf/ Then you can click on the link and it will take you to a google page and you can see what they typed in to find your page.
from kristintracy :
aha! the crab place of which you speak is called cantler's, and is very close to my house! i have been there a few times myself, but once summer hits, it is always so f-ing crowded as to be almost not worth the effort. but, they do the local crab thing up right & tight. ~k.
from kristintracy :
OH. mygod. you know that i am terribly excited that your comment about me on your profile being a beastie boys lyric = badest. ass. comment. ever. i am almost inappropriately excited about it. make of that statement what you will.
