didn't see any pictures from Stadium of Light {Wearside edition} last night - was watching the collection of acrobatic set pieces that is Blade II with friends instead [and feasting on rainbow-paper wrapped chicken, prawn dumplings and a sliced pork ruby]; vampiric Luke Goss leading an army of Richard O'Brien clones through the sewers of a dystopian central European city = must be a joke there somewhere - so unsure if that lump Sinclair could possibly celebrate like Andy Cole did on Saturday in Birmingham, but anyway, did you see Cole?

gurning, like a tic or a leap of the mouth, just whooping it up = COOL AS FUCK

does Patricia Cornwell want to give it a rest on the Walter Sickert/Jack The Ripper theory?

reviewing some compilation of regional-specific tunes in a local magazine there was the phrase "think braindance on a budget".

is it just me or is that lame [much like the New Brand Flex ripping of Westwood once Si SDC mentioned, where one DJ is denying any responsibility for calling Tim, whilst the other slags him off to high heaven]?

not perhaps as lame as a rather dumb whinge about dancehall, of which possibly more on that later here...

Reynolds mentioned this the other day but i saw an advert, right, for some August bankholiday weekend bash in town (Mcr city centre) at the admirable Sankeys club - or it was affiliated to them, it's one of these warehouse parties {Carl Cox etc} - and i'm sure James Zabiela was a flagged-up name.

i know what he means, it's a functional death of imagination thing in the regional dance press, anything that comes along gets clapped at uncritically in my experience, which is not an ideal starting point for a forum.

this is indeed remarkable

i'll piss off my mate Steyn (sorry Mark! P.S. the cannoli was excellent, thanks) saying this, but Robert Fisk has a good article today in his Indy about the passing of King Fahd.
the first few lines, free, here.

i only skimread it, but nice touch in again calling Iran [& Saudi Arabia] a necrocracy.

elsewhere, although Dick Bentley is trying to make a good point, he ends up reading - truth? - like a, frankly, blase twat: this particularly due to his second bracketed aside and what comes immediately before those brackets.
