I knew it!

I said Conspiracy.Shame it turned out to be true: Bowie pulls out of T in the Park.Paul McCartney to replace?UPDATE: T in the Park organisers confirmed that The Darkness would replace Bowie to headline Saturday night's main stage."This year we have one of the strongest ever T in the Park line-ups across all stages, and

Syndicate

RSS, Atom, feed readers, news readers, syndication, XML, and a few other terms aside, what's it all about?Prompted by Lyle finally adding an Atom feed, and this post by the venerable Mr.Sippey, I've been delving into this whole thing again.And once again the 'simplest' way for me would be to export my blogrolls to OPML

Coffee

I have a little ritual when I get into work; make coffee, read email. Simple.Many other people have the same ritual. Thankfully I was slightly more awake than a co-worker of mine was this morning. I mean, do you really have any excuse when you forget to turn your coffee mug up the correct way

T in the Park #3

Saturday on the King Tuts StageNow we are getting to some of the better known artists, on the stage sponsored by one of Glasgow's best venues (where Oasis were discovered if I remember rightly).Ocean Colour Scene + Ash - Odd one this. Ash, yes, OCS, maybe... but what does the "+" signify?Katie Melua - Live?

Overheard

Standing waiting for the lights to change, a wee Glesga granny turns to her two grandchildren: "Now, we'll just wait for the wee green man. Jinky Johnstone." (who?)

Conspiracy?

Dominic Howard has my deepest sympathies with the news that his Dad died at the weekend. On top of that and David having a sore shoulder, I'm beginning to wonder if my first visit to T in the Park is jinxed.Ohhh in case you don't know, Dominic is the drummer for Muse, and David is

T in the Park #2

Sunday at the X-TentSo here is Sunday's list of bands for the X-Tent, once again, if you have any suggestions let me know. At some point next week I'll write up who I'll be trying to catch, your vote can make a difference!The Stands - Heard some of their stuff, not overly moved.Hope of the

T in the Park #1

Saturday at the X-TentRight, here we go. The X-Tent is the smallest stage, and I'll probably only be there for the earlier bands. I've heard of a few of them, and I'll list the rest in case there is anyone I MUST go see. No doubt a lot of these will suffer as they are

Festivals

So, watching highlights of Glastonbury, some good stuff, some mediocre. All of it whetting my appetite for T in the Park in a couple of weeks.Ohh did I mention that the best mate a man could have in the whole wide world ever managed to score some tickets? Top stuff!So, with that in mind I'll

Myth?

Well I know where I WON'T be going for a holiday any time soon, and they can put their Olympics where the sun don't shine..(OK, OK, France didn't deserve to win. There. I said it).

Muffin

OK, last word about last night's game. Portugal had a shot that was cleared off (or behind?) the line last night. Funnily enough I don't see any mention of it, and we didn't see it on reply after the game. Just saying...Headers - no not the physical type. I mean the web type... the bit

Halftime Extra Time FULL TIME

Flippin' 'eck! THEY might even win!UPDATE: EXTRA TIME. Unlucky Sol Campbell though, didn't see much wrong with that.UPDATE: It's all over. Lost on penalties. Again. Oopsy.Well I said I was supporting Portugal as they were the host nation, but I have to admit that England were unlucky. No way Campbell's goal should have been disallowed.

Pride

Bit of a dodgy topic this one, so stick with me.Tonight, whilst watching the football (yes yes I KNOW!) I'll be... wait for it... supporting Portugal. In as much a way anyone of 'neutral observer' can support a team that is.Now, this is NOT because they are playing England. No. It is because they are

Rain, rain

Well all this precipitation is ruining my plans. I mean what's the point in having a few days off work it you have to spend them stuck indoors playing computer games and watching crap on TV??Ahem.Anyway, how are you?
