Pirate radio never looked so good
Nigel Farage, who has the fifth lowest attendance in the entire European Parliament, has announced he’s running in the General Election. I kind of hope he wins. De facto anarchism.
Metal fandorks crying about Rihanna wearing a Judas Priest top:
1) Rihanna personally chose Extreme’s Nuno Bettencourt to be her touring guitarist, and he was even giving her guitar lessons on the road, so she must at least know a fair bit about rock.
2) Judas Priest are hardly some obscure band you have to be WAY INTO TEH METULZ to have heard of.
3) Assuming that an attractive, female, black R&B singer could not possibly be into them based on zero evidence, and despite points 1 and 2, says all kinds of awful things about you.

This is incredibly cool. I really hope this helped some people get off the streets and in permanent employment.
Incidentally, if you’re wondering about the green M&Ms thing; it’s used to gauge whether the event organiser has actually read the rider and how far they’re willing to go to keep their stars happy. It is actually pretty useful.

Francoise Hardy with Iggy Pop, covering the standard I’ll Be Seeing You
In that small cafe
The park across the way
The children’s carousel,
The chestnut tree,
The wishing well
I’ll be seeing you

I’ll be better when I can listen to that song without you
I’ll be better when I can finally bring myself to delete that first email you sent, so many years ago
I’ll be better when the thought of kissing or sleeping with someone else doesn’t give me vertigo
I’ll be better when every aspect of my life doesn’t revolve around your absence
I’ll be better when I stop making lists about how and when I will be better and can just let it happen.
None of these things is immediately forthcoming.
It came up on shuffle, and I didn’t skip it. I’ll never let it be ‘our song’ with anyone else, but maybe now it won’t be ours any more. Small victories.
