prince regent pub gloucester road

So I was in the pub last night, which afforded me the oppurtunity to do a number of things. mainly to actually write up a few things in my blog.

So first of all I ordered for my PSP a new 1gb card at about half of the price of the high street.. Thank god for ebay. It took a while to get here from Hong Kong. but so worth it, as I can now have music pictures and videos on the thing with out worrying too much.

Personally I think it is a huge shame that the logic 3 PSP keyboard has been cancelled I had been realy looking forward to that.

I have been flickr' ing as per usual and really getting in to it. Discovering all sorts of new applications within it, like making mosaics of my images.

Any way I was at the pub because I wanted to meet up with Cas. he had just had an interview that day that day witha company called... Acamite. though I not sure yet how to spell that.

So Cas will be back in the land of the employed very soon. At last.

Any way it was a noce night knocking back a few jars of guinessand all was right in the world again.

Also another techy thing here I am glad they have finally released a few UMD films cheaply here now. Under £8. now i can have a few movis for when I am on the go.... though that does make me sound far to geeky and techy. oh well

What have i been listening to

Well I have been listening in a kind of a additive way to the kanye west album late registration.

some great samples and fantastic lyrics. Fun and serious stuff all the way through.

I would recommend it to all of you. the diamonds track is so good as is the really sweet song for his mum... ah bless

Musical night out

Just been out tonight and been to see a cool band, who did an acoustic set in a cool little room off bond street. 43 south Moulton street. It was a really lovely session, a bit folksy but more of the Belle and Sebastian / Nora Jones /Beth Orton.

The band was called 'me and bobby'.

Check out their website if you have a moment

The best bit of the night was the atmosphere there was about 40 of us in this cooped up little room with a great band playing. The music was amazing really because the it sounded so clear at times I wish I had a audio recording device to keep it all, because it was so clear.

Strange to think that I will be working now at the dana centre only for another 3-4 weeks. Scary. then on to the world of podcastign for me it would seem after a little bit of travelling.

The light lounge and it's circular sofa

Apparently out of all of my photos, this one has had the most views with 63 views... the light lounge has obviously been designed to haunt me for the rest of my life.

Flickr posting values

So as you may know from a lot of my extensive photo uploadings, i have quite few images 'out there'. Below are the links to some of the more popular images that I have online. I really will try to increase these values. Like the teacher would write on your report card...must try harder.

This is one of fvouite photos i have taken so far.. mainly because it was done in the middle of the night on a 3 second exposure on my camera. Just the blues of the sky and orange of the foreground are fantastic I think. And of course battersea bridge as well.

I have also been planting seeds of basil... for future summer harvest. Yes country domestisity is getting to me.

not that intersting but nice use of technology in terms of organising parties
and drawing out the route for people so that they can find their way to yours!

Late nights at Dana

So this week has been a week of late night events, one of which ,(speed dating sceince) i have now done... but one fo them is still to come.

speed dating science though was hilarious... not only was it a fantastic event which had the science of body language talk then speed dating but also the fact we had loads of peope staying at the bar durieng and after the event.. some how i was leading a procession of these people down to the south kensington wine bar that i knew was open late. Janets'!

when i got home at 01:00 i thought it would be a genius idea (i may have been drinking) to try out watching ferris bueller day off again.

It has to be said waking up to the sound of bird call at 5:30 in the morning is not allways a good sign especially when you have been slumped on the sofa for the past few hours, with the TV still on in the background showing the ferris bueller test card.

Any way.. tonight will I am sure be more restrained and relaxed which will be great. It is all about aliens.

catch you all soon. I will be loading up some new photos soon. when i get a chance to take some images.

It is amazing how much success it created.

Worked 5 days of more than 12 hours
Been out drinking for more than 5 nights
one of which was with this hard drinkng OBE person
Run at least 4 full Dana centre events by the skin of myteeth
