Area Man Updates Blog About How Boring Life Is

Thursday, May 10th, 2007

I’ve ditched my old life as a redundancy-inducing idiot for the life of some rock and/or roll socialite idiot. An update. Try keep up.

REMEMBER, YOU CAN’T SPELL RELAXO WITHOUT RELAX!

I sang with a great group of lads called Funzo in a Battle of the Bands. We won of course and, as the prize, are now playing the main stage at Trinity Ball; supporting CSS, Ash and Hot Chip! Who saw that coming? We’re on at ten if any of yez are around and wanna j/cheer. I’m not sure how else we’re gonna differentiate between the sound check and the show. I’m so out of touch I’m Image-Googling some of the bands so I can get that special feeling when I spot them posing backstage; that feeling that they should know you ‘cos you know them. And you wanna spill your guts to them about why they’re so great and such. I hope the other artists don’t find that video of me.

OOOH TELL US MORE!

I got back last night from a work trip to Leuven, Belgium. That’s all there is to tell.

I’LL DO IT. I WILL, I’LL DO IT.

I saw Joanna Newsom play Dublin a while back. Stunning show. Stright to the Top 5. Feel free to keep on hating her though, if that’s your stance- I found this. She needs a swift kick in the eye. Only the eye though. I like her singing, songwriting and playing; nothing else.

YOU CAN’T MAKE ME REDUNDANT, I QUIT!

Next month I, along with her and him, am quitting my job! But not before I go to France to see CocoRosie! Woop woop! They play La Cartonnerie, Reims, which, literally translated, means The Cardboardery or The Boxery. So hopefully we can visit some of the cultural centres there and learn more about Reims’ rich cardboard-box-making heritage.

After that it’s to Apolo, Bolivia (more info here) for some cross-cultural training and orientation before I embark on my thrilling two month stint of voluntary work in Sussex. Wait a minute- strike that. Reverse it.

I WAS DREAMING OF THE PAST

Things are up in the air right now but this superstar may have peaked and hit his Rishikesh phase way earlier than expected, because I may well be discovering myself (and Latin America) afterwards in Cuba for an (as yet undisclosed) amount of time.

Watch this space. If you dare. And other catchy soundbytes. Yum.

stigmund‘s fine! He’s more worried about you!
