    crime goes backpacking

    i dont live anywhere near borough market, so cant help on that front. each area will have their own - my area gets bare pikey clothes stalls and nothing else! markets are markets....standardly, it depends on whether you know the people you are buying from to get those discounts. for example, my chef buys fish from a market up in town (i forget which one). but as he knows the dude who runs the market, he gets the discounts. when i go up, i get bumped.... such is life though... more london flicks are needed though!

    Don't quit your day job.

    Re: You ever have those days.... dazzle and swif, ill get back to you to both tomorrow! i promise (that ill try to remember...hah). My memory is appalling for things like that im afraid. i haven't been a "bar tender" in years now, so im not sure why that came up. once upon a time i worked in many a pub / bar / club, then i moved onto managing them. Now i work in events / festivals / sales / marketings.... ps. my bad monday continued into a shit tuesday. pps. drugs are bad.

    Don't quit your day job.

    You ever have those days.... ... Where you question what you do and why you do it? Well I'm having one of those fuckers now. Christ almighty, I was ready in more than one occasion just to go out for a smoke and not come back. I would have left all my clients in the lurch happily just for 5mins of breathing space. Combine that all with a dickhead for a boss and numerous colleagues it was fucking tough getting through today.. How does anyone else cope? /end thread and go back to sulking in the pub.

    Don't ndonit a comeback..

    *edit, I posted this and then found out the pics are rather large. my apologies but i am not going to change it / dont know how anyway. ...I've been here for years etc. Well, actually almost 10 years on the oz now...:o Seen some changes over the years, and the one thing that has stuck with me has been the phrase "flicks or it didn't happen" and the fact that many years back when channel 0 was in arguably its best period, there were decent photothreads coming from every-fucking-where! I wanna bring that back... Anyhow, I tried this yesterday and failed epically. I've now spent the last few hours sorting, editing and uploading these for your enjoyment. Long story short, I haven't been posting on here in ages cos things in this corner of suburban London have changed rather dramatically this year. Change of career, home, friends, fashion sense....pretty much the only thing that hasn't changed is my car (although the dents have increased somewhat...) So sit back, roll up and click the occasional youtube links to listen to the tunes i was, and enjoy. Ps. there is very little order to all this, but most of them are from the last 7 months. youtube no1: Ok to kick things off. I got sick of the pub game, and fucked off outta that game. I just lost all motivation to kiss everyones arse and the pub won the awards i entered it for, so i thought it was time to leave on a high.. I've now moved on to the events / festivals / concerts / stadiums game. Still selling beer, just on a much much much larger scale. New company does other things, and as a passage of fire my first 4 months were spent organising / co-ordinating / stressing / running the countries largest inner-city festivals. We do it each year on behalf of the Dutch govts. Tourist board...and is pretty nuts. This year we had over 75,000 people pass through on the day and sold over 30,000 pints of lager. At £4 a pint, you can do the maths... These next few pics are all about scouting the location and the set up. do you recognise it yet? London town from the as of then very unfinished, very exclusive rooftop bar of hotel by same name of the square. We blagged our way up there when paying a visit to the hotel to check them out... Very early morning on the day of the event. I'd had serious sleep deprivation the week before. Christ, the stories from organising the fucking thing are enough for a thread themselves....Pop stars who only want certain sweets / drinks on their rider / trying to find a hotel for 40+ people the same weekend as the london marathon (ie. no hotel rooms in the city at all) and being on a budget! I could go on, but i wont... Duing the day.. Thats the national portrait gallery in the back there. New music link - another house classic. So one day I was asked if I wanted anything from the wholesalers... I got a pack of these way before they hit the shops with the new blue flavour...sorta made my day... Smash137 - good life metaphor. More to come...

    Don't ndonit a comeback..

    those are grapes... more pics... so my boss asked the operations team to get some bottled water in to the office for us to drink / offer at meetings. this is what showed up. a tad excessive in my eyes.... much needed for the friday afternoon, cricket sessions in the warehouse. aka how hard can you throw a ball at someone? watching Morrissey (of the Smiths fame) perform, through the trees from on top of a lorry in my filling station area, whilst "working" at a festival. Morrissey was a bit of a twat. we tend to rent a lot of vehicles for events etc, and use the local branch of a nationwide rental chain. we are this branch's biggest customer, and regularly spend small fortunes with them. they thank us by sending pizza for lunch every so often... bacon from said pizza lunches floating in my lemonade. not best pleased!! ill try and add more over the weekend...

    Don't ndonit a comeback..

    More flicks... This is a shot of some of our equipment in the warehouse. Without dropping any company names or anything like that - we are a leading provider of "beverage dispense systems". Essentially, we find new ways to pour and serve beer. These are "draught backpacks" where we take beer from large kegs, move them into small kegs, put the small kegs in a backpack, attach gas and cups and wham bam you have a mobile bar man capable of serving perfect pints. the campsite at one festival. When i say campsite, it most certainly was not where i stayed. i have discovered that there is nothing better than doing a festival and having a hotel to go back too. fuck camping yo! it was the bosses birthday this week, so we had cake more to come at somepoint soon...

    cheers for the help harvey, symbols too... Rolf - i was working with some south africans who had never heard of the bru, so i made them drink a can. they claim to have something similar back in SA but its green... Dow, im pretty skint at the moment but if i ever get the funds to go travelling to hawaii no doubt yoou can watch me get knocked back...it'll be fun, im going to put together some more flicks of some of the events ive been to recently at work tomorrow, but in the mean time here is a very grainy shot of Prince (or the artist formally known as whatever) about to play his first ever UK festival - rumoured to cost the promoter about $3mill. In fact, they even extended the festival by a day to cater for him and had to find loads of other acts to fit in around him...

    the murdoch downfall..

    you cant get away from this story in the slightest, its everywhere....all news programmes lead with it, the sky news app on my phone has rocked it as the top 3 stories every day, all radio news is on about it, its all over twitter.... christ. then, jonnie marble splats him in the face with shaving cream while he is being questioned bty Members of Parliament?!?!? i cracked up when i heard it - only English people would go to all the trouble only to throw shaving cream! i heard a quote from security at the questioning saying (or something to the effect of) "We did not consider shaving cream to be a credible weapon, hence why it slipped past us..." !! Classic! It is proper shady though, especially when Brooks (the red head editor) says she won't quit, then they shut down the paper causing people - who didn't work there when this all happened - to loose their jobs, then only a couple of days she does quit....Hmmm. On top of that, when the NOTW journalists were being told the paper was closing, Brooks is quoted as saying (again to the effect of) "You will realise in a year why we shut it down..." - implying crazy more stuff would come out. Im gonna call shenanigans over this one.... And, thats only about 1/4 of the whole story...

    Don't ndonit a comeback..

    it was to celebrate Dutch queensday - their national holiday. We organise / run it every year for their tourist board. officially it was to promote tourism and commerce to holland, but essentially it was a piss up in trafalgar square. we arranged for 5 dutch bands to come over, got Amstel to sort the bars and the beer and organised food stands, cultural crap and childrens activities. also managed to convince easyjet to hold a national "double dutch skipping contest" in the weeks before hand and have the final at the festival. i paid a rather large sum of money to a team of mountain bike stunt riders to wrap themselves in orange and do tricks everywhere (because apparently the dutch like bikes) and also persuaded the Van Gogh museum in Holland to give out some prizes... the parrot came about one weekend where i was at another event we ran in a park in central london over the weekend. that weekend was funny as hell, it was the first time i had to drive a large lorry (if you saw the state of my car, you would realise why my boss was worried and doesn't park next to me in the car park) through central london - streets like Oxford Street, Regents st, Picadilly circus etc etc. Proper scary....well for the passengers. i fucking loved it... anyway, back to the parrot. its sunday afternoon and after a day or stopping tents from flying away and getting rained on in a windy thunderstorm, the sun came out so i stopped working and had a beer. i then got a radio call saying i was needed by the entrance to the park. turns out this woman had been walking out of the park when this parrot just flew in and calmly landed on her shoulder. the woman shat her self and ran off screaming, whilst lil parrot chilled out on the floor. turns out security guard on the door keeps parakeets (as you do) so picked him up while he called us. whilst we tried to find out where the fuck it came from, the bird just chilled out with us and had a cheeky bite of our food and sip of the drink. no problems... we ended up returning the bird to london zoo which wasn't too far away as they had the equipment to check for any tags. last i heard, he was reunited with his owner a few days later..

    ^cheers man. Teh back is still there thank fuck, no further action has been needed. *touch wood*. I got back on a push bike for the first time in a year the other month...was a nice feeling! I had so many ideas for the commentary, but doing this on a shitty laptop that started to overheat became pretty long so i cut it down... If people are interested, I'll drop some stories about all the crazy stuff I've seen in the last few months...

    Don't ndonit a comeback..

    Driving through the countryside. The first of what will be many festivals this summer. No rain! This lil dude was raving away during some headliner I'd not heard of. Upon my return home, i discovered an over zealous scum of the earth (traffic wardens) had given me a parking ticket for parking on my drive. On my own drive for fucks sake! I took a photo to show that i was parked in a close as i could and as such they shouldn't be dickheads. another failure.... Whats on your desk? Turns out the other half of my photos didn't upload themselves so i will end with a sunset shot taken just before Prince played his first ever Uk festival set.... Ill update more over the coming days. Ps, the first 2 posts can fuck off. get in the spirit of things..

    Don't ndonit a comeback..

    I had to go to Glasgow in Scotland for a week to work a series of Take That concerts. Scottish people drink a lot. We sold out of alco pops and beer over the course of the 3 nights. Another thing, it seemed that there was only 2 types of people in Scotland: people who look like crackheads or morbidly obese people. The crowd on the only evening it didn't rain. Ask Rolf about this shit. Irn bru by the case load... Part of the very expensive stage show. 5hours worth of stock. Robbie Williams and 50,000 people. We have learned the hard way and now, every time we travel to work we have a kettle and tea making equipment stashed in various vans and cars. Sometimes we end up waiting around for hours on end, and as Brits a cuppa goes down a treat. Even thunder storms won't stop Scottish people getting wankered. Back in my part of the world for a meeting with the mayor of london's events team. Off to Kings of Leon gig...not a fan myself, but for free then alright. Dinosaur Ribs... Much abused stress toys Random flick no2. Beer drinking parrot. More to come....
