Searching for “Madonna” and American Life (her forthcoming single) on Kazaa, I was not surprised at all to find it there, tagged as “demo”, “unreleased”, “new track” etc. I downloaded a few of those files on the off-chance that it

G. the flatmate left last night for a three-week holiday in Australia. I had planned to take this opportunity to stop smoking, his absence meaning no cigarettes around the flat. He is one of those lucky bastards who smoke half

My boyfriend? No, too teenage-like, and we’re not sixteen any longer. My lover? Not too bad, it sounds a bit too much as “a bit on the side” though. My long-term partner? My life companion? I certainly wish that to

3 bad things about last night’s Brit Awards: Davina McCall speaking like a normal human being, then regularly punctuating her speech by suddenly shouting “IT’S THE BRIIIIIIIIIIIIITS!” – enough already, Dav baby; Sugababes singing (“singing”?) live – my illusion of

One more reason to watch Footballer$’ Wives (in addition to the far-fetched storylines and the inevitable gratuitous locker/shower scene in each episode): him there on the left. Only two lines, but delivered with such power, such thespian pathos, such a

This post about Faustus‘ father made tears well up in my eyes, in amazement at how enlightened a human being can be. It also made me wonder once again about what it would be like to have my own father

I am not paranoid, nor hypochondriac, but I woke up in the middle of the night after falling asleep on the couch (on my left arm apparently) with the aforementioned limb completely numb. It has happened before, and I did

Hats off to Mike for another of his compelling initiatives: Which decade is Tops for Pops? The perfect chance for me to hear songs for the first time, or to put names and titles on tunes. Today’s songs? Never heard

If you are partnered, be nice to your other (and probably better) half. Flowers, chocolate, bling-bling and / or dinner are quite appropriate today. If you are not, you have every right (and my full support) to be obnoxious to

There is a delicatessen shop about a five minutes walk from where I live. I walk past it almost every single day, and I was convinced it was Italian. I never paid much attention to it, but for a while
