Random

Don't you just love it when you're listening to your mp3 player on random and you come across a track that you have no idea from whence it came? This morning it was Speedy Gonzalez by Pat Boone, featuring the voice of Mel Blanc. I don't even know who Pat Boone is?

True Fact

The quality of a film is inversely proportional to how many Eddie Murphys are in it.

For example, Beverly Hills Cop or Shrek - Eddie Murphy count: 1, brilliant films.
Nutty Professor - Eddie Murphy count 8, complete turd.

The only exception to this is Coming to America, which is genius, and contains at least half a dozen Eddie Murphys.

Budgets, like, whatever

Lots of people moaning on the news that the increased (again) Olympic budget will be raiding the National Lottery kitty. But hang on, didn't 'the public' recently get up in arms about unspent Lottery money? Might as well spend it on something....

Boring grown up post

Shocked as I was to realise that I've been living in my flat for 2 years now, even more shocked was I when Abbey let me know what my new monthly mortgage repayments would be as my interest rate changed to their standard variable rate. We're talking an extra over £200 a month. So, about 3 weeks ago I applied to remortgage with ING Direct and I've got to say, it was an absolute piece of piss. Hence why I'm plugging them here. You fill in a couple of forms and that's it. They do everything for you and don't even charge you any fees. Nice.

I know the rate's going to have to go up soon though as it's remained the same throughout the last couple of rate rises, but I chose it because I didn't want to be tied into anything and I want the flexibility to overpay now and again. Whether I'll actually ever do that is a moo point.

Tout

I'm feeling well ill today, so I'm stuck at home watching Ray Mears Extreme Survival on Discovery. However, a bout of man-flu won't be keeping me from seeing Arcade Fire tonight in Brixton. Anyway, I've got 1 ticket going spare, available for the princely sum of twenty five of your English pounds. Let me know if anyone wants it otherwise I'll just have to hand it over to some tout scum.

Haha, tickettout.com in administration. Serves 'em right.

Apparently there was a lunar eclipse tonight

I'm thinking it started out like this:

and ended out looking a little like this:
