8:13 pm - RIP Syd Barrett

1946 - 2006

'Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
You were caught on the crossfire of childhood and stardom,
blown on the steel breeze.
Come on you target for faraway laughter,
come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine!
You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Well you wore out your welcome with random precision,
rode on the steel breeze.
Come on you raver, you seer of visions,
come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine!'

"Once well underground, you know exactly where you are. Nothing can happen to you, and nothing can get at you. You're entirely your own master, and you don't have to consult anybody or mind what they say. Things go on all the same overhead, and you let 'em, and don't bother about 'em. When you want to, up you go, and there the things are, waiting for you."

Mole in 'The Wind in the Willows'

1:43 pm - A week of revelations

Today I brought some of that new Coke that i've noticed popping up around the place, Coke Zero. It actually tastes pretty darn close to real coke! Amazing. Here's hoping they keep it around.

My shopping trip concluded with purchases of Golden Honey and Cinnamon Apple tea. Not a big fan of the cinnamon however - blackcurrent is next on my list. :)

current mood: coke

So yes, I left for work at 8am Friday morning, and have just arrived home at 8:15am Saturday morning. No sleep, just all work installing a brand new server. Thankfully I had Mrs Green Tea and Mr vanilla tea to keep me company. It's up and running after a few dramas, but there's still more to go. I don't think i'm going to go back in until Sunday, but hopefully by then our network guy will have finished the rest!

8:32 pm - Get the guns out, get the guns out
Wow, the new Kills album, No Wow, is killer. Saying that it isn't really new, (released in March) but i've only just really listened to it properly in the last few weeks.

Favourite tracks so far;
Love is a Deserter
I Hate the Way You Love

9:29 pm - Random Queens gig thoughts
Well this time last week we were watching Queens of the Stone Age. Here's my run down from the gig;

-The Futureheads supported. Don't know if you've heard of them, but I'd only heard Decent Days beforehand and that hadn't really sunk it till I saw them. They were really great live, i've since bought the album and i'm enjoying it. A few songs to skip over, but a few great ones too. Decent Days and Nights and Meantime sounded fucking awesome live. They also had this cool light thing going, everything dark, light flashing onto each member during Decent Days, looked very very cool.

-Definitely miss Nick Oliveri stage presence wise, and miss his songs. The new bass player handles it well, but really just stands and plays the songs.

-Not really into the keyboardist that much. Kinda felt like she was just there for show, but the keys sounded alright in about two songs

-Lights weren't as good as Interpol, but cool trees in the background and looked suitably eerie in some parts. :P

-Ended up getting a little too close to the mosh pit, so had to put up with a few knobs in Billabong shirts who had heard No One Knows a few times jumping around into people and being generally annoying. Plus some knob who jumped on Victoria's back whom i'd liked to have given a right old whack, but alas, we can't resort to violance these days....plus the bouncer was staring straight at the guy. ;)

-The place was absolutely packed! We got there about 10 minutes before the doors opened, and the queue was down the street and around the corner!

-Joey put on a great drumming performance, I was really impressed. Loved the drum solo in Avon

-Troy is great - still keeping the suit up.

-I like Josh Homme's dress sense (don't know what happened with the hair on Rove)

-I found myself getting a bit bored in the middle of some of the new songs. I disliked the version of Monsters in the Parasol they played, plus they didn't play Regular John. :\

-Funny bit - someones keys ended up on stage, Josh picks them up, shows them to the crowd, then puts them down his pants and walks off the stage. Then came back out for the encore and threw them back to the crowd with a cheezy grin.

-Josh seemed really humble at the end and apologised for the last gig they played with Nick. Said something along the lines of, "Well, it was rather eventful last time we played here, we didn't want to leave you with a sour taste in your mouth". Anyway, seemed really appreciative and said they'd be back soon.

-Hearing was finally restored to 100% after 3 days. Battled to hear anything after the gig, and my right ear was suffering for a few days afterwards.

Rock n roll \m/
