My car has decided that it is time for it to branch out from being awesome on the road to trying to be awesome online. It has a twitter account. Here: http://www.twitter.com/nissansilvia It tried to post a GPS record of it’s journey this morning but the mapping tool said that it had travelled only 0.76km. […]
At the risk of turning this into a reblogging site for My Favourite Band, I share with you the following – Nine Inch Nails with Dillinger Escape Plan doing what can only be described as a fucking amazing version of Wish, live at the Soundwave Festival in Perth, Western Oz. As much as I enjoyed […]
Crash your dreams and fall forever.
I have the man-fluÂ and I am at work. The combination of these two things has me down, down, down, down. To cheer myself up, I thought I would watch that Hard Copy episode with Trent Resnor (sic) faking his death. The best thing about it is the sarcasticÂ bearded reporter who can’t tell the difference between […]
Everything they whispered in our ear, is coming true.
No lights in the sky. Or power on the stage.
It’s the nature of… Of my circuitry.
I have been away. Kinda. Not really. I think I found somewhere I want to be all the time and that is in the crowd being a part of something, being connected, being punched, being hugged, being pushed, being pulled, being there. Two Thousand and Nine Inch Nails has come to an end. A bunch […]

When the world is falling apart and burning down around us, I allow myself to get upset about the cancellation of a car that hadn’t even been officially announced. So, good bye what might have been the next Nissan Silvia, good bye. The boys in […]
In transit you pass among the strangers of the world.
I got a random Facebook email this week from this Clare girl asking, in the subject line, if she knew me. I was going to bin it, because I pretty much have enough friends on Facebook without new unknown ones requesting the add. But I clicked on and read it without thinking, and it turned […]
You and I get along famously.
Dear John, Did you know that one part of the Super Furry Animals and an American producer called Boom Bip released an album of music inspired by you? You didn’t? Well, they have called themselves Neon Neon and the album is called Stainless Style. You should check it out. Here is the clip for one […]
Move right through me, can you feel the power?
I got thoroughly confused the other day trying to explain to someone that Yaz were not Yazz but were Yazoo. So, in order to have a single point of reference in the future, I present to you the Shallow Bay Guide to Bands That Vince Clarke Done Been In. He started off in “No Romance […]
