Intermission

As you have no doubt noticed this blog is in the middle of a summer break. I’ve been finding it hard to find the time or inclination to blog since returning from Scotland way back in June. This lethargy coupled with having to deal with three kids on their summer holiday means thing are not likely to improve in the immediate future.

Normal service will be resumed…one day…probably.

Meanwhile, for your enjoyment here’s Bill Nelson playing ‘For Stuart’ at his recent ‘Legends’ show at Metropolis studios. The Stuart in question is Stuart Adamson of The Skids and Big Country.

darkdance said...

You had best get your own ice cream....

You may have liked the blog
For the blogger it was his dream
But it has fallen to bits
It's no longer what it may seem

Bovril n Wagon Wheel for me.
Fitness could be the key in the 2nd half. He's got a strong bench to turn to.

BrotheRay said...

Bovril'n'Wagon Wheel!!!!!.........

Got to be a Wolverhampton Wanderers supporter.

Mick said...

It's worse than that. I think our Tony's a L**ds United supporter.

BrotheRay said...

L**ds Un*t*d !!

That'll mean the Bovril's past it sell by date and the Wagon Wheel's on loan..

I was joking.

During an Intermission, I got some Ice cream and a chicago hotdog. WEll, if those two are available, I would love the intermission rather than the show. lol

Dear Mick,

Please could you blog and/or tweet more. I miss ya. (That goes for you too, dicky.)

Lots of love,

Kippers

Mick said...

I'll try to get back into blogging mode soon. I've been having all sorts of problems with Twitter for months so i've virtually given up.

Been having a bit of a mare in the Group of Death. Lost 32 points by not using my wildcard. Last round I got the 3rd highest score and finally got off the foot of the table. I need to do that every week to have a half decent finish.

dickvandyke said...

Hello our Mick.

I too am less than pink and perky with Twitter these days. Dunno why really.

There must be something off Planet Rock that'll inspire you. Something nice and proggy from '72? Lennie Chickenfoot and the Giblets (Live at The Baader Meinhoff Community Centre, Stevenage) perhaps.

The Group Of Death will hopefully spark up a bit soon. (Rooney's kick out at the Montenegran? just about sums up the game in England at the mo).
Kips will soon turn the corner and reach his perfect operating temperature.

It is a very long intermission...

darkdance said...

"People Who Died" from the oldsters' bungle in the jungle has been downloaded over 100 times. Perhaps prophetic, but even the Isham Jones tunes have been downloaded more than a couple times. Person or persons unknown are listening to at least some of the linkable songs on this blog. One of them might be mum. I'm told she's quite cool. Now all we need hereabouts is a proper blogger.

Is there a blogger in the house?

dickvandyke said...

Or ....

'Is Mick there?'

dickvandyke said...

Ey up Spunky
Happy New Year

Mick said...

Thank you DVD, this year's surprise package in the Group of Death.

I might restart the old blog in January. An older gentleman at work (in his 60s) gave me some old 70s LPs to convert for him and then said since he hasn't got a turntable I can keep them. That's at least a couple of posts sorted.

dickvandyke said...

Oh I think you should post on the back of the old lad's kindness and precious LPs. (In his 60s eh. That'll be us soon!) You owe it to him. Is it proggy or poppy stuff?

Yes indeedy, The Fantasy Football 'Group Of Death' has been an interesting 3-way tussle for some weeks. My 'success' was helped by my enforced sick leave following a back operation - leaving me time to sit, wade through 'the form' and do the thing properly. Although, at this point in the season - when at least 80% of the players are worth avoiding, it's a question of luck as we choose a nucleus of players with a variation on a theme.

Am toying with a wholesale Wildcard splurge and pick players on moral grounds only. Then watch my impressive fall from grace.

I'd also add more scoring options to spice it up a bit. Like: 3 points for being wrongly red-carded, 2 if you've been verbally 'abused', 5 for being an ex-player returning from retirement, - 10 for being an obnoxious twat. (Clearly, the latter category would have a glut of 'Star Men').

Mick said...

One LP was proggy the other latin flavoured. That's all I'm saying for now. He also gave me a King Crimson CD for christmas because he had two copies.

Take a look at the December leaugue for the Group of Death. If you can't be arsed I'm No 1. Bit worried what I'm going to do without Demba Ba though.

I like your new scoring system. A ginger twat who can't tackle coming out of retirement could score well if he existed.

Rai said...

Man that was pretty enjoyable! =P

davyh said...

Did it have to end this way?

Mick said...

Inspired by your recent record box picture and the fact that I've just won an Ebay auction for "100 new wave/post punk/synth" singles including one I've been after for ages I will be back soon.

Those records were £18 including delivery which I considered a bargain even though I already had about 25 of them. As ever it's the ones I've never heard of that I'm interested in.

darkdance said...

Davy and I and also yur loving kin Ray will believe it when we bloody well see it. Contgrats on your purchase. I won't tell Mrs. Mick about your latest binge if you could drag thyself off your fat arse and resume posting promptly. Now would be good. Am done with intermission whatever that is. Just ring the bell to your left and I'll bring you another elixer.
