Wow I'm bored today...

Was looking through the Jesse Malin website (far too long since I gave him a plug on here) and I noticed he does this monthly list of things he's recently enjoyed, so I'm stealing the idea. Can cover absolutely anything, so...

'Rescue Me' TV show - Can't believe how much better American TV is these days.
Kopparberg Pear Cider - truly the nectar of the gods, can't wait to over-indulge!
National Lottery (just won a tenner!)
Teddy Thompson - son of Richard, very talented.
V For Vendetta - not one for comics but the film rocks.
World Cup build-up.
Bad reviews for the Da Vinci Code (what a lot of pish the whole thing really is).
T Rex - Electric Warrior
Tickets to see The Cult in September.
And of course, Horatio Caine.

As I said, I'm bored. Feel free to join in or completely ignore!

Can't get enough of it!!!

Anyone following the under 21 European Championships in Portugal?
We lost the 1st game vs Ukraine, but later in the evening Italy - Denmark 3-3, great match! Can't remember his name but the Dane from Arsenal was great!
I don't think the real thing in Germany will have this kind of open en fresh play!

Maybe this will cheer you up Swamox, we have a strange phenomenon over here, it's called Oranje Gekte (Orange madness), every time our team joins a big championships the country goes crazy, cars, faces even houses are painted orange, people dress up etc etc.
This time the dutch RSPCA has put out concerns and warnings, I myself am more worried about the orange beer!!

Orange Madness - looks like a very apt description!

I long for the day Scotland qualify for a major tournament again - so we can get our hopes up, party and then get knocked out in the first round! Again.

My high point - Surf going to see Jolie Holland.. Have a great time Surf - I expect a full review tomorrow. I really hope she isn't crippled with nerves (I gather she suffers stage fright) :?:

My real highpoints for the last couple of weeks:

Getting my Cavaquinho :D
Seeing the 'Ukes' natch.
Finishing my 1st year of degree HOOORAY!
Going camping for the weekend with a whole bunch of Ukers.. not as square as it sounds. Lots of drinking involved. Hooray!

Genuinely getting marriage proposed to me. :oops:

No kidding? I never would have thought that, I saw her two years ago and while she didn't seem like the most comfortable person on stage, it didn't seem to be a problem...

Very few things are going well for me this week :x but next week will be great:

Taking day off work for Memorial Day + taking day off for my birthday = three-day work week
Best friend coming to visit Friday-Sunday
Another good friend coming to visit Thursday through mid-June (he is the one who drew my avatar)
Tickets to see T Bone + Marc Ribot
Tickets to see Reverend Glasseye

Watching The Last Waltz with my mum (she is visiting for a few days, loves good music, but hasn`t seen this one before).

Knowing I have tickets to see Pearl Jam in Prague in September. I`ve waited six years to see them again!

Thinking about all the good concerts I`ve already seen this year.

Thinking about the Tom Waits evening in hubbys café June 17th. I am looking forward to it with a passion! Same band as last time, and they were great.

This has been a very good year so far, absolutely agree. Best in years!! I have only two more shows planned, but they both make me happy: Metallica in June and Cave in Antwerp in September.

More random happiness:

- picking up my new (used) car in two hours
- 99% sure I'll receive a job offer from a different company today after 6 hard long job inteviews. (I received a text message saying 'You're in!!' from one of the guys there after the last interview. I can't see how that's not going to end up with a job offer) I think this is bye-bye huge american corporation, hello small american hip company.
- my daughters have all been ill and sleeping so badly lately it's been a real disaster. The only way it can get worse is if they decide to stay awake absolutely all night, all of them, which I think is impossible for a child. The only way is up and it makes me happy to think about future sleep.


Nice thread, by the way.

Hey Ruuntje, very good, the job that is...
Did you see the Metallica docu yesterday? Not my kind of music but loved the program.

Minusses for this week:
My wife's mother dying. She had been drifting away for ages, so in a way this is a relief, but still sad. :(
My son badly rolling his ankle, putting himself out of soccer (his life blood) for several weeks. :!:

Plusses for this week:
Playing some music with some Hungarians. :)
Seeing Australia beat Greece in soccer. :clap:
Seeing my son's futsal team beat some guys more that five years their senior tonight (and he didn't even play, due to above ankle, but I'm still manager, so have a strong emotional attachment to their collective success...;)). :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
Convincing same son to use a track (Invitation to the Blues) from Small Change on the soundtack of his media assignment, and him really liking it. :blues:

Oooerr Andrew you have a tough time ahead - sorry for your loss :(


My positive moments:

Uke weekend was great and I did my first live performance singing and playing St Louis Blues - went down really well so it boosted my confidence.

Got a new uke while I was there - it's a real little beauty. Only 60 of them made. A very belated Valentines Day present from me man.

Went to the beach yesterday with a whole bunch of ukers and kids. Was one of those great moments in life that cost nothing to do.

Getting home was lovely because we camped and it really poured with rain on Saturday.

I'm sorry for your minusses Andrew...

Sometimes different kind of good things come together...one of my musical heroes and the place I love to be, in other words Captain Beefheart performing on the beach in Cannes with Ry Cooder on slide, never saw it before, great stuff...
