I heard it again on the radio this morning. 'Drug lord'. Not 'drug baron'. It was a different person too. Did I miss a meeting, or a memo? Has there been a revision of style guides? What next, are they suddenly going to start calling media moguls media mongols, as if they never did any different? Perhaps there was concern that they had been giving free publicity to The Barron Knights, or sixties crime drama series The Baron. But perhaps there's something dodgy going on, perhaps now they're giving free publicity to Peter Lord, the... maker of bits of eighties school uniforms? Or seventies sports jackets? I can't quite remember. I think it was some sort of olden days apparel, anyway. What was Peter Lord a vendor of, and when? It's on the edge of my awareness, like Toru Okada's Thieving Magpie. I could ask the twitter, now, as I'm writing this, but I prefer to ask you, and leave it unknown within the context of me writing the piece.
Service has been a little patchy lately. It is returning towards normal but might not be helped by the impending double wine night. Because I am away next weekend and can't do wine night on either the Friday or the Saturday I am doing a double wine night this weekend, the Friday and the Saturday. It's not just me looking for an excuse, one of the regulars can't make the Friday this weekend. But it will be a hinderance to normal It Is What It Is service, potentially. But maybe not, as I have been prioritising getting to sleep at a vaguely sensible time over always having this ready to go for 5AM the next day it will be less affected by me sloping off to bed due to wineage without having written it. Anyway, what I'm trying to say is that I have an excuse for a couple of days for the patchy service you've been getting anyway.
I need a different relationship with time to that which we have to realise my full potential. I just have too many great ideas to do them all. I was talking to someone earlier about a film idea I had some years ago I've done nothing about - basically I come up with a load of good lines, separate ones, and film each in a different place with a different performer. I don't think I even have any lines yet. I haven't done any more work on my Bucks Fizz cover. And now I am seriously threatening to do a remix of something featuring Paul Daniels talking about WD40. Perhaps I could kill two birds with one stone (sorry birds) and use some loops I took from Radiohead's Pearly* and only made a rough sketch out of. There's no footnote, that asterisk is part of the title you ignoramus. And while we're at it, it's not Asterix. That was the occasionally racist comic character. Or was that just Tin Tin? No, i think it was both of them. Anyway...
that's all from me for now
see you around
