Malcolm McLaren…

Just reading some stuff on Malcolm McLaren, who has died today and found a great quote….

There are two rules I’ve always tried to live by: turn left, if you’re supposed to turn right; go through any door that you’re not supposed to enter. It’s the only way to fight your way through to any kind of authentic feeling in a world beset by fakery.

HomeBrew Lager….

The resting period is over!…

Homebrew Lager...

The first attempt at our own lager is ready for drinking. A European style lager, with a mild flavour. A success for our first attempt though. We’re enjoying the first bottles tonight!

Next up, the bottling of our Malbec, on Saturday. That’s best after about 6 months apparently, although, I’m not sure how we’re going to last that long with it sitting there….

Muse-eumology….

Well, that’s that then. Utterly brilliant….

The title of best live band on the planet, is one that they deserve…. possibly takes the position of best gig Jesus Boom has attended in his short span on what can best be described, as "Planet Muse"….

British rockers Muse deliver supercharged theatrical rock concert

"…. If you had doubts before Thursday night, Muse would not only make you believe, they would downright convert you. With a massive onslaught on the senses, Muse delivered an art-rock concert the likes of which they don’t really make anymore: grandiose and spectacular, yet smart, litterate and 100-per-cent inspired. An absolute triumph."

The sound was maybe a little off, but apparently the venue is known for that. But, you know what, that’s live gigs for you. If you want it perfect, put the CD on. If you want a show, these guys are what you want. If they come back next year, to a larger venue, we’re going again.

"Muse-eumism", it’s my new word….

One thing though, on the tickets it states, no cameras allowed. And yet, almost every cell phone is now enabled with a camera, some with video capabilites, most with more quality than my old digital one. And everyone has one, other than us of course…. so what’s the point in banning regular cameras at gigs anymore?
