Jokes about bumming people when they pass out and liking Kylie Minogue? I thought Bloodstock were better than that. Some metal fans are gay, and I believe a comedian performing this year makes the point that there's not much manlier than fucking a bloke. Not impressed Bloodstock. Not impressed at all.

Man, I hate those. There's only two or three that are actually funny.

The pathetic excuse for a police force in Northern Ireland who have allowed the rioting in Short Strand to go on for 3 nights in a row. It's all kicked off because the UVF has a new brigade commander in East Belfast and not doing anything about it these last 3 nights is just giving them free license for more havoc over the summer.

The only ones I find amusing are those with the voice that sounds like Alan Dedicoat (sp?)

Appointment was a waste of time apart from to say that there is nothing wrong with my nervous system. Got another appointment in 6 weeks in a different hospital who will no doubt get no closer to finding a diagnosis. Still cannot drive.

Jacket arrived. They sent the wrong size, and it looks hideous on me anyway. The cut is like a business blazer :/ looks more like business woman trying to be rock than anything. Picture made it look way nicer than it actually is. Fucking disappointed. Also going to have to waste £7 on postage sending it back. Fuck sake.

If they sent you the wrong size can't you claim the return postage costs back?

Possibly, I'm not sure. I think that might only be if I were to ask them to send me a new one, I don't know if they would do that with me wanting a refund of the jacket.

Finally got an email back regarding my photopass to a festival over summer.

They've given me a level 1 pass, which means I get into the festival and campsite for free but I'm only allowed to take photos in the campsite or areana (but not of the stages)

What the actual fuck is the point of that? Why give me a "photo pass" when I can't fucking take any photos of the bands?


and before anyone says "oh but your getting a festival for free don't complain" I was never going for the bands as it's a shite line-up, was just going as I was asked to do photos for a site
