Voodoo Hoodoo!! [Mar. 25th, 2004|04:05 pm]
Miss Von Trapp
[Mood |sillysilly]

Food Consumed Yesterday
1.5 litres of lemon/lime mineral water, 1 pack dairylea lunchables,
3 mugs of coffee, 1 machine cocoa, 2 cheese + onion sandwiches,
2 bottles of silver V-Ice vodka, 1 bottle watermelon VS vodka,
half a pint of cider or something. Smoked: too much.

Oops! I didn't get up till 4pm...

Sue rang me...was about time I got up lol!!

Didn't go to theatre this afternoon...I have a rotten sore throat/good old british cold and didn't want to spread it about:/

Now I'm sat here, drinking black coffee...off to work as usual at 6pm, and hoping they'll let us out at midnight-ish again.

They let us go at ten to twelve last night...so, naturally, I didn't want to go home, so took myself off to Voodoo Lounge instead. The lure of alcohol was too much!!

Had a good time, saw Rich, Kenneth and co., Izzy (who was 'Scheherezade' in the panto), Sam (DJ, band member) and a few other people I know...the music was mostly crap...but had a few drinks and ended up dancing to The Doors, Radiohead, The Lemonheads, Weezer and even a NIN/SuperMario mix of Closer which was god-awful, but funny.

Got home at about 2:30am, and went to bed...dug out a few old tapes to listen to and found one with my first band (aged 16) on; an 'album' entitled "Riot with a Dead Rabbit" which was mostly us doing appalling 'rawk' interviews (I came from space and invented rock and roll because my ship got caught in an asteroid storm..."a lot of rocks!! and the ship went 'roll'...") and playing T.Rex 'Get It On' and 'Jeepster' very very badly...

On the B-side were recordings of a lot of old songs I'd written, with schoolfriends playing the piano with them, heavy electric guitar on the goth ones...a very sincere song about a pet mouse my ex and I had called 'WiffleMouse'...

"WiffleMouse, you are so small,
WiffleMouse, you're the best mouse of them all!

Your nose is pink and purry
And your skin is soft and furry
And you're OH SO WHITE!

You wiffle in the morning
And you wiffle in the evening
And you wiffle all the night!

WiffleMouse, you are so small,
WiffleMouse, you're the best mouse of them all!"

...even some seriously funny psychedelic stuff (recorded to the backing of a musical jewelry box, tambourine and Mike Oldfield's 'Woodhenge' on vinyl) about 'Green Dr. Scholls', some dodgy 'Academic Failure : Music Played for GCSE' piss-take rhyming/rapping stuff with an instrumental 'Two Unlimited' Techno backing, crap acoustic guitar solo and delivered in a northern accent...

...and an 'Our Tune' about Dennis Thatcher committing suicide because the 'Iron Lady' was finally coming home and he didn't want to be stuck with the 'Ironing Lady' for the rest of his days...a satirical piece I wrote in 1991 (?) when she stepped down as Prime Minister...and recorded with the 'Romeo and Juliet' classical theme that they used to use for 'Our Tune' on Radio One. A sixth-form staple - that was!!

I'd really like to burn them all to cd...was fun to listen to them again...

Anyway, got to sleep around 5am, which is why I slept so late again...

Ho hum. Another working day. Roll on payday!!

Hahah, that Our Tune sounds fantastic. "Today's Our Tune concerns ... a man, let's call him ... Denis". Priceless. It's hard to imagine someone getting away with an item like Our Tune on the radio these days, at least sans irony.

I'll have to find some way of converting it to mp3, and then you can listen and laugh:)

those songs sound devine... if you burn them to dvd you must let me rip them off you so i can see if the way they sound in my head match the way that they sound in reality. ;P

Well, they made me laugh, but they'd probably sound AWFUL to anyone else lolol!!!

The tape its all recorded on is at least 14 years old...I really should make a copy:)
