The continuing decline of popular music

Tue, 05 Jan 2016 11:18:34 +0000

A quick recap:  Twelve months ago I spoke about the worry of the number of songs in my ‘favourites songs of that year’ playlist dropping sharply.   I basically have playlists in iTunes for every year since I have enjoyed popular music and put it into it the songs I have enjoyed during that time. It’s […]

Parkrun : 4 Years of Running

Sun, 08 Nov 2015 09:00:54 +0000

“Why don’t you do a Parkrun?” says my friend Richard to me in an email. “What’s that?” I email back – no need really, as the moment after I reply to to him I am already searching the phrase online and find the website straight away, where the first thing I do is try and […]

My band is broader

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 08:31:05 +0000

The year is 1999, and I am having an argument with my girlfriend.  She has some justification that I have spent the last 3 hours on the phone … online.  Playing a game.  And thus, her mum was not able to get through on the phone to speak to her like she normally did on a […]

Turning Fifty

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 07:00:32 +0000

The year is 1997 And I am twenty five years old. I drive my car on the Saturday evening involved over to the cricket club near Croydon where the fiftieth birthday party is taking place.  I have a card and present which I’d wrapped at the last minute stuck on the seat next to me. […]

The decline of popular music

Tue, 30 Dec 2014 11:22:23 +0000

A vivid childhood memory that I have when I was 11 years old, is coming home from school in the winter just as it was getting dark around 4pm, and coming home to my mum. She would make me a tea, and as a pre-dinner snack we would quite often have some Bovril on toast […]

1,293 days later. The final tally.

Sun, 15 Nov 2009 20:34:56 +0000

And I’m on my way home. One thousand, two hundred and ninety three days later (thanks to the Date Duration Calculator for that one) and it’s time to take a one-way ticket back again. Whilst reading through all my blog entries the other day it was fascinating (if not, slightly excrutiating) to discover my posts […]

Going home is easy now, as I’ve finished my packing. I literally had to sit on my suitcase to squeeze down the top of my bag so that I could get the zip to go all the way across. I’m taking back more than I brought across with me, and I’m still leaving behind a […]

So here it is then – my ultimate list of why the UK rules, and the USA sucks. Ok, no – I’m not gonna do that. Do you really think I’ve learned nothing during me time year? (Don’t answer that!). Far from it, I’ve learned loads. But when reading through every single post I’d written […]

I’ve been busy. No, really. I’ve been back today and read through every single blog post that I have written in my time in the USA, and been reminded of everything I did. Some of it is fun, some of it is well written. Some of it is embarassing to read, and some is just […]

The Best … Going Home to London Album in the World – Ever!

Wed, 11 Nov 2009 22:49:12 +0000
