My I-don't-have-to-run day


This Sunday, come down to the Vauxhall Griffin for a browse through the Sunday papers, a Bloody Mary and a delicious roast dinner.
Food is served from about 2pm until sometime after 4, but you're advised to come down earlier rather than later as they can sell out pretty quickly. (It's been very busy over the last few weeks).
From 1.30 until 6pm, gentle pops, wistful melodies and some soothing tunes will this week be supplied by Kiss & Make Up's Stuart. And you might like to know that Sunday Supplement DJ Hayley is running the London Marathon on the same day.
If you'd like to, you can sponsor her here:

That's all.

EDIT: Also, Hannah from work is running it too! And you can sponsor her here.

Stop me


Here's the compilation that I was going on about here.

Manniversary


Happy Anniversary to Disappointment. And also, farewell to LCD Soundsystem, who play their final concert tonight. Look at the spooky date coincidence in their Disco Infiltrator video!

Ain't no party


Recently, I was set the task of making a compilation CD of songs by artists that shared the same initial as my forename. Does that even make sense? Erm, I think it does. The CD was to have 12 tracks, and also the cover had to be an homage to an existing cover by an artist beginning with the same letter. ANYWAY. I made my compilation (which I might post here at some point) but I also made an exciting BONUS compilation that was a bit more dancey and I kind of went slightly beyond the 12-track restriction. I called it S Club Party, because all the artists begin with S, like. And also, it's kind of uptempo and suitable for those fun times in your life. (Parties are fun times). THIS IS THAT COMPILATION. And, seemingly, S Club 7 were so moved by the reference, that they immediately reunited for a night up west. Aaw, bless. Apologies for the shoddy mixing, but please realise that – due to the '80s nature of some of the tracks – I cannot be held responsible for all of the dodgy t-t-t-t-tape edits you're about to hear.
