Congratulations Will and Nicki!

Call him Roger, Keith or Clive.

Something must be done to prevent these beautiful British names dying out.
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!

Maybe I should make another mistake! ...maybe TWO more!

It's about time someone brought Isambard back as a baby name.

Bit of a disturbance on the road just now, guys running up and down shouting "CUUUUUNNT!!!" or something, like proper angry. First thought was probable domestic but then it continued and we wondered if it was a mental person. It's stopped now, still glad I live on a street of Victorian townhouses where people will be wandering out and wondering what the jolly heavens is going on.

I saw some of that when I went to the Imperial War Museum North on a visit to Manchester.

...I also saw a 3D-printed bust of Bez from the Happy Mondays at The Museum of Science and Industry.

Last time I looked at the top, it was 300-odd days to Bloodstock. When did it suddenly become 68? Shit, slow down, time; you'll give yourself a heart attack if you're not careful!

In 2011 I went to Nova Rock in Austria and it was 25C, but felt more because there was no shade, or clouds, anywhere. I probably would've estimated it at about 30C due to this.

Going to Nuremburg for Rock im Park this week. It's predicted to be 32C with no clouds anywhere.

Hellfest was like that last year, and that had the added factor of massive dust clouds everywhere.

I dread to think what temperature it was at Wacken a few years ago. But I came back like a lobster. :flame:

I'm very much hoping for small shower queues, otherwise it'll be a case of throwing cold water over me each morning before putting on that day's clothes

Fucking huge bang in the house (something falling on the floor) last night at 4am - I swear it sounded like there was someone in the house but when I explored absolutely nothing was amiss.
