Why I’ve joined the Green Party

I haven’t been a member of a party since the early nineteen eighties when I joined CND, I imagine about the same time as Caroline Lucas did. We were supporting the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp alongside other things but I was too much of an individual to stay a member and so quietly let …

Oh dear, Oh dear, Oh

I send flyboy one on first as usual, he likes it that way (so the ladies tell me), job done, he’ll be fine at the pearly gates, apparently god doesn’t mind if he’s white with black stripes or black with white stripes and since we’re from Brighton, we don’t mind either. To be fair he …

Brighton 5 v 0 Norwich

20161029_164733

You don’t get to see a 5-0 very often in your life and as an Ipswich fan I’ve been lucky to experience that against the old enemy Norwich, 21st February 1998. So to experience it twice was a joy, a spy in the Brighton camp I am never the less a supporter and of course …

Emaciated man takes down the zebra as the crack of doom opens up and swallows the wanderers

Doom, doom, doom, the drums beat as they reach their destiny. The toddler steps up and he’s got his luck back from the Zebra. The big eared cunt toddles his way to a win. 6Fish steps up and stumbles as he’s done all season and the moral victory goes to puff the magic dragon. Mr …

American Pie

ziggy

Having frightened the life out of some poor guy whos back garden we invaded thinking it was the back entrance to the club we were attending we finally reached our destination. The first of the fly boyz stepped up (Zebra) and began to strut his stuff. Mr. Angry said he wasn’t as aroused this week …

Jack Kerouac, Bob Dylan and all the way back to existentialism

Its a long road from the The Hikers Rest to reality. Taxi drivers lose their way and never come back but ours stood firm and showed us the light. I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser …

What goes around, comes around

The Invitation More than two years ago now the idea came to me. I was watching a TV programme and a lollypop lady who had been working for 30 years was retiring and so people had put her name forward to attend the Queens Garden Party. It became apparent to me that it was now …

Bridget Riley at De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill

2015-07-04 11.03.47

My first thoughts on Bridget Riley are that she must have the patience of a saint. Her work is effectively ‘technical painting’ and as such must be very time consuming to do and test her patience to the utmost. Because the work is so technical I struggled at first to see past the production process …

Two shots 6fish

hail-mary1

Well we were soundly beaten once again and realistically no one was to blame really. Bitcoin played a nice defensive frame to get himself into a winning spot and then promptly cocked it up. Mr. Angry was bored to death by his snooker playing opponent. Big unit stepped in on short notice and made a …

Spy in the camp

Brighton 0 v 1 Brentford I’m going to get to see a few Brighton games this season and this was the first. Very enjoyable day with beer either side of the game. Brighton had their chances in this game but their attack is pretty toothless and they payed the price for that when Brentford scored …
