It’s Friday, it must be time for the Biscuit… Does your heroin lose it’s glamour on the washboad overnight? When your mother says Don’t do it, do you crack it up in spite? Do you rob your brother’s Giro, do you talk a load of shite? Does your…

I love this current poster campaign from the British Heart Foundation.

It is exactly one year since John Peel died. This time last year I put together a compilation to celebrate what he had done for my music listening. At the time it was very much a personal thing but time marches on so here’s what I came up with.

Straw poll: anyone else had problems with a Sony Ericsson T68i? I’ve just sent mine for repair under warranty. A minimum two weeks just to look at it, and point blank no replacement phone, says it all to me.
Walking from the station to the office this morning, a peculiarly large number of people appeared to be smiling; almost chuckling to themselves. While this is entirely laudable behaviour, in London it is enough to make one feel somewhat paranoid. On a different note,…
