Sasha playing on Friday as well. Really looking forward to it.

Where's Sasha on the Friday?

Take her with you Dan! Isn't your wedding anniversary in September - closing party!?

Resident Prog God Harwood way back in the day. Dude on Facebook trying to ID the track playing. You guys are normally pretty good at this sorta thing! Any ideas?

We all should meet here one day lads -


Will be a top top night.

Despite Ed's crap fish and chips recommendation I'm going to give this a go in December. It looks like the darts except with food instead of darts.

Been to the Hawker House one in Canada Water a few times. To be fair, the food was fucking boss.

Nothing I've ever had in London compares to imperial dining in Beijing at places like Li Jia Cai, but I hear Four Seasons on Wardour Street is respectable.

+1 for Four Seasons. Used to eat in the Queensway branch when I lived there 20 years ago, and the Wardour Street is, if anything, better.

Does three hours really represent an 'extended'  set?!

My local Tesco has started stocking these. My favourite American pale at the mo...


They do a decent session IPA if you're planning on having a bunch of them.

Surely Operation Lenor / Fabric softener thing has got to be a wind-up?!

Well in buddy!

At least he and his wife are still in one piece, that but that kinda experience must be fucking horrible.

Don't know why, but I woke up with the piano riff from this stuck in my head this morning...

Stayed in last night. Bugged out at the Old Queen's Head today. We've got tickets for Dixon as well, but might give that a swerve...

I saw a review that mentioned that,  and likened it to the development of the iPhone.  Original iPhone was great at the time,  but iPhone 6 beats it hands down.  Same basic premise though -  just an evolution of design and technology.  The original premise of the death star was sound - so they've just evolved it in the intermittent thirty years...

That said,  it's failed miserably twice.  Maybe they thought third time's a charm....

Thought it was great. Didn't try 'too' hard, and had some proper funny moments...

Have read a few reviews saying there were too many links back to New Hope. There obviously were some, but I actually thought they helped the narrative rather than detracted from it.

I can't believe you're both so wrong on this one...

Rumours is an astoundingly good album.

Tonight - nowt.
Tomorrow - birthday type lunch for me and Mrs with the family, followed by beers and music for Vicky Pickles' birthday.
Sunday - as little as possible.

Love The Departed. Did you fly like it was 1985 and not have other film options? Entourage?

Options a bit thin on the ground to be honest. And was utterly knackered, and wanted something easy to watch. And quite enjoyed the TV series. And and and....

Long flight yesterday, so...

Southpaw - tosh. Updated Rocky for the 21st century with an angrier (and worse) soundtrack. 4/10.

Entourage - enjoyable tosh. Haterz gonna hate (etc), but was a pleasant enough way to pass 90 minutes. Just felt like an extended episode of the TV show... 6/10.

The Departed - excellent. Cracking cast, well written and directed etc etc. 8.5/10.
