It's great to be alive and famous
Well, good day to you all. I'm afraid to say that the time of this post isn't set to Greenwich mean time, which is close to home. Spending the winter in Birminghamshire-upon-Sussex has been one of the greatest bloody moves of my life. The colour of the sky itself is so much more gorgeous than in the dregs of Los Angeles. It feels like combat trying to get the newspaper in the morning over there.
If you want to see what it's really like to live the wretched life, rent a cheap motel room in the States somewhere. My personal favourite was located in Highland, Nevada. You need to get some mates together and just trash the lousy place. But that's not what we're about anymore, is it? (Really, though, even if we were, y' don't really believe that we'd tell you, do you?) But that's not why I'm even writing this. I personally would like to leave a social commentary aboout the importance of technology in our society. I don't really care about all you neighsayers out there (and besides, if you're a horse, then you can't really be reading this, can you! Ha!) but technology really has improved our quality of life. Some of you out there have mentioned to me in the past (okay, when I say some, I'm in actuality referring to millions of people, those of you who are bold enough to just let off an anvil of your chest and shove it down your favorite rock star's throat. If you're reading this right now, chances are you've done that already) that I'm not the most favorable or aestetically pleasingnest bloke to speak with. Well, that's your prerogative now, isn't it? But my real point here is that because of technology, you can just turn me off, or edit me out. (The BBC have already had their share of that privilege).
And besides, without this blessed technology, you wouldn't be sitting there out in your world wide porthole and watching me throw these words at you. These new biographies, or biogs, (or 'bigos' as I like to call em) make it possible to really know what's on someone's mind. (I think the word 'blog' is actually a typo and whomever threw it out there was too daft to notice). Also, the technology of these modern times will make it possible that you can visit this site and listen to our recordings. The sound quality's not as good as vinyls once were anymore, but it'll do.
Please send us out a hullo when you visit here.
Well, it's about time that my "favourite" band has put up a blog. I've been in withdrawls since the documentary came out so many years ago. Malcolm, Simon, when is your next cd coming out? Cheers,
I heard from a weird source that they got into a heated arguement over new songs they were recording and only released "Why Bother Trying" as a single with no full-length CD yet.Post a Comment
