Tube strike outside Camden Town station. I really feel sorry for people who have to get tube to work and go home everyday..,
I was in Camden on Monday evening for the NME pub challenge.There were 7 contestants including myself, Kate Nash, Will Mystery Jets, Rose Dougall, Martin British Sea Power etc....
It's coming out for their Christmas Issue, that's why I'm wearing the
The winner will receive this trophy!
I can't really go into the details what we did, you have to wait and see till the issue comes out.
Unfortunately I had to retire the game after round 5... it was taking a lot longer than I expected and I really had to go to somewhere else. So This is Ash, the Big Pink press guy, I asked him to take over my position! I gave him my outfit.
So I'm back in Dalston
I went to catch up io echo's headline show at The Drop
Nova & Amiee
Robbie the Big Pink DJ set
Me & Amiee
The Maccabees DJ set
Leo packing up, he never does it when he's with the big pink
My Lovely Pearl Kit!!!I felt bad that I had to leave the NME thing, I took my friendship over NME... I'm sorry but I really had to make it to their show.
I wonder who won the competition, I really hope Ash won for me, I was winning before I left!

Tesco is doing Pizza Express Half Price offer at the moment. £1.99 for the margarita!!!
I've been eating Pizza Express margarita pizza like 5 times a week.
I arrange it by adding different extra toppings each time, so I don't get bored...
This one was with cherry tomatoes, chopped chilli & basil pesto
I'm very satisfied...
oh yeah and I listen to this song while I eat my pizza...

It's getting very cold in London. I like sleeping with GG, he keeps me warm.Me and GG reminds me of this Japanese Anime called "Jarinko Chie". Chie and her cat Kotetsu (little iron) are best friends.
The story is based in Osaka, the area I was born and grew up.
The main character Chie is a 10 years old girl who works on her own in her dad's small skewered BBQ restaurant after school.
because her dad is always off to a gaming club gambling,
She does admin.
I love Chie's character so much. She's a very strong independent girl. She's always full of life.
She often gets teased by these two boys.
But she doesn't let anyone mess with her.
Chie's cat Kotetsu is also a very important part in the story
He's always by Chie's side
He's really good at fighting with other cats
He always practice his fighting skills on top of the roof.
This anime is my ultimate TV program of all time. They repeat broadcasting it on Kansai (Osaka) area channels.
If anyone want to watch it, here is the episode 1 (with English sub)
You can watch in total of 11 episodes.
I went to see The Drums Wedensday Thursday 2 nights in a row at London Forum. The shows were supported by io eho and 2 other bands. Lou came with me on Wednesday.
Connor & Jacob
The Drums rider
The Drums new guitarist Tom, Jonny, Connor, Amiee the manager & Jacob
The Drums sold out show.They've been on tour non-stop since the NME awards tour this February with The Big Pink
they were so much better live from the last time I saw them, it was so good to see how bands become so big and great within a year by working hard touring constantly, building up their fan base and profile.
and YES!!! Connor trashed his drum kit on stage!
I was showing him pictures of my kit I trashed a while ago, he said he has never trashed his kit before, he couldn't care enough for the band. But Wednesday night, he trashed his kit!!!
Champagne! Happy Thanksgiving!!!
on Thursday io echo at Forum.They sounded so heavy and were so great. They are definitely for big proper venues.
they looked like it was their headline show.
back in the dressing room, Leo's Mum & Dad came to see them.
I watched them from the front tonight.
They sounded better than the night before
Well done Jonny!!!
What??? Connor is trashing his kit again! 2 nights in a raw!!!
We hung out in the dressing room for a bit and said good bye.
1am, io echo finished packing up and stored their gear in Dalston. (they are borrowing my drums and some of the big pink gear)We were all so starving. So we went for a late night Turkish dinner, the restaurant just round the corner from The Big Pink storage space/near my house.
They have a proper stone stove & charcoal grill, and check out they are grilling orange peel with charcoal for fragrance...
Starter to share... Hummus, Taramosalata (cod roe dip), Grilled Halloumi Cheese etc etc.
