Now that’s what i call a porn film.

Digging up old posts, redesigning the scrapbook from the ground up not to mention all the other stuff. Kishi Bashi, Leeds, of Montreal, Yip Deceiver, Kendal Memes.

I would have posted last week, in fact I tweeted that I would. When I came to add my of Monreal scrapbook, I forgot it was broken. So I bit the bullet and obliterated the scrapbook and integrated it into this article thing you are reading now. Basically it means you can search the website for scrapbooks now.

This took a few days to add and tweak all the scrapbooks, I even managed to find Simon Pegg’s tweet so I could date the Shaun of the Dead Rising 2 scrapbook properly.

There were a couple of pictures missing so while i was searching for them i stubled upon the original Booshambles code. I actually had 2 files named, archive2005 and archive2006. So with another few days work i have added nearly all the posts from the original site back in. It’s suprising how small they were but if i remember the way the site was designed a paragraph looked pretty big. I also found the official Booshambles Website birthday, It’s June 10th so mark your diaries. The forum is also coming back just for practice in setting one up really and to see if i can keep it bot free.

On to the actual update. I went to Leeds again, quite the adventure, I read The Body by Stephen King over the whole week off, mainly on the train there and back. Excellent story as i have said before, especially while on a train, 3 hours travel flew by, or should i say trained by ah ha ah.

I went to see of Montreal again and there was an amazing band on before them called Yip Deceiver, which is made up of 2 members of of Montreal. Go grab the EP from iTunes for £2.99. Also Kishi Bashi was there as part of of Montreal. He just released his first album and again it’s excellent, I ordered it from the US for about £8. When it turned up it came with all this stuff:

A Spring tour postcard
A Watermelon Jolly Rancher
Two Kishi Bashi button badges
A Kishi Bashi Sticker
A Joyful Noise Sticker (The Record Label)
The Album

Crazy stuff, which brings me on to Troy setting up Kendal Memes on facebook, i did three and thought i would stick them up here.

That is all.

What a month

Nobody was happy when Ron learned the 'Arseus Explodeus' spell

Nobody was happy when Ron learned the ‘Arseus Explodeus’ spell

Been rather busy with work and going out nearly every day i have had off. Leeds, Pub Crawl, Cold Pizza.

First off I have made a few changes to the site. I can now hide articles so updates can be worked on over time then made visible when finished. Also I can change the time something is posted so I never miss a deadline. It’s cheating but no one reads this anyway. Once i have learned how to make articles visible on a certain date the site will update itself as long as i stay ahead of the updates. It’s all to do with timestamps kids.

Sadly this new system was setup after this journal so there is probably a few things that i have missed out, that won’t happen anymore because as soon as something interesting happens i will make a note of it hidden away until later.

Anyway on with the update y’all.

Well after the Of Montreal gig in Manchester i went to with Troy, he began a campaign of pestering me to go see him at Leeds. After a bit of research and good timing i managed to get a ticket to Leeds from Kendal for £14.50 with a change at the dreaded Manchester.

I said this in the Leeds Scrapbook but i don’t have a compact/good digital camera, something the size of a phone would do. All i have is a big chunky professional thing so there is only one picture of me in Leeds and Troy took it and he can’t find his camera, add irony where appropriate. Maybe i didn’t go to Leeds after all.

The week after Leeds we had a Pub Crawl, which was one drink in Ring O Bells, Wheatsheaf, Brewery, Shakespeare, Wetherspoons, Burgandys, Ruskins then Dickie Doodles. No one really managed a drink at Dickies and i was still drunk the next day. If we did it again we wouldn’t bother going to Ring O Bells again, it’s a strange place. It was a good night though and picked up Rory on from Wetherspoons, who i asked if he wanted to be on Booshambles, he said YEAH like it was something awesome. So here you go Rory enjoy. Also in Burgandys Chris wanted a pint of Duvel, i was drunk enough to buy it at over £6 a pint, upon researching the name for this journal i found it was 8.5%.

A few weeks ago the oven broke, and it’s amazing how much i actually use it. If the microwave had gone too i would probably have starved to death. Ended up buying an overpriced dominoes because i ran out of stuff to microwave and really fancied a pizza. Didn’t eat it all and only because we had no oven i kept the left over slices. Never had cold pizza before, just because it never appealed to me like cold gravy or melted ice cream. It was really nice though.

Well that will do i think, it has taken me ages to get this update together because i ran out of caption pictures and doing all this background stuff to the site not had any time as usual.

Leeds Trip

My trip to Leeds after being pestered by Troy to come see him. I should really get a small portable camera as my phone just doesn’t cut it and there is no way to turn off the clicky sound when you take a picture, so i didn’t take as many as i would have done. Maybe next time…

The whole trip was really good and went to Wagamama’s for the first time and i had:

Chicken Tama Rice
Grilled chicken breast stir-fried with courgettes, mushrooms, red and spring onions in an oyster, ginger, garlic and wine sauce. Served on sticky white rice.

There should be a picture of me looking at it disapprovingly but it was really nice.
