Valencia or bust!!
Because my company decided to cancel all Christmas holidays last year I had some extra days to use up, so I took that one off, I danced happily out of the head office. As a matter of fact my time off happened to be the same week that my mum and dad decided to take my baby niece out to the villa in Valencia, so I tagged along for the craic. Unfortunately when we arrived, the weather was just as bad as back home and the house was freezing (que panic buying of electric heaters) but the alcohol was flowing freely and being away from real life for a bit was really nice.
Valencia is a beautiful city with amazing buildings and sights (including a functional bull ring, which I don’t like at all) on this trip I managed to learn a lot about the history of Spain. I discovered that Valencia was actually a independent city in Spain up until Franco and his fascists took control and made it give up it cultural identity, including it’s language. You can see examples of where people have changed the spelling of many road signs back to the original Valencia spelling. I also discovered that during the Spanish civil war (just before WWII, which is why you might not have heard about it) the German Luftwaffe practiced its bombing raids on the Bask region of Spain killing thousands of civilians and destroying hundreds of homes. The fight against Franco and the Nazis was undertaken but Communists from all over the world, including England, but because the world was gripped by the paranoia of the “communist threat” none of the world leaders would lend aid and condemned the fighters travelling there. Right up until invasion of Poland by Germany, at which point we all know the story.
Funny that, huh?
Anyway the most amazing part of the weekend was that on the Friday it snowed in Spain for the first time in 24 years. Me and my sisters bloke Ian had a play in the snow that night, just so that we can tell the shorty's to come that we had a snowball fight out side our Spanish Villa, while dodging behind snow covered Palm trees.

Christmas in the doledrums
There is one thing worse than being alone at christmas and thats being surrrounded by people trying to cheer you up and asking why you're alone. So you end up recounting the same half true story to everyone single person at the party,one at a time, and god forbid you should find a quiet place to sit out of the way of everyone!!!
Now don't go thinking that i've spent the weekend dressed in black, mopeing about like a pissed off teenager, I'm very good at hiding my feelings from people, putting a brave face on is speciallity of mine of which i'm quite proud in fact. But unfortunatly when everyone thinks your sitting on cloud nine, they have a tendency to be interested, to ask questions about "how life treating ya?". So, in order to hide the truth from the people closest to me i dodged, side-stepped and spun every conversation that was thrown at me until, at the end of the night, i managed to escape in the shadow of my brother and his baby arriving (grandchildren are a 1st class distraction).
Thankfully the night was partially saved by a long, cold walk home.
In case you were wondering what the moral of the story was it is as follows...

"I really am a cock".

I can't help it and i never seem to be able to catch myself doing it at the time, only noticing through hindsight (which, as we all know, is 20/20) I DO try to keep a handle on my mouth but unfortunatly if you only every hurt the ones you love maybe i should have bought them some body armor instead of DVD's.

Things can only get better.
To add insult to injury today, my laptop died and won't be fixed for at least a week.
Plus the company i bought it off has gone bust and the warrentee is worth sweet F.A. so it'll be expensive.
This sucks SO MUCH!!!! No communication for me this week.
Lonely, sad Dog in a big metal box flying through the countryside at 60mph BOO!!!
This is beginning to take the piss now. I'm seriously considering getting a false passport and trying to start my life fresh on in a remote part of the planet, far far away from all this shit. It could work, it could!!!
Life can dissagree with my Balls!!!!!

Thats right ladys and gentleman, My pet monkey are playing support for the grand-daddys of Ska BAD MANNERS!!!!!
I'm so excited i could shit myself, I've never been so nervous of a gig in my life, and i'm the biggest show off around!! It should be packed and thats where we do our best work. After the Bell gig last week we've had alot of good feed back from fans and such. Even using words like "incredable" and "genius" to discribe us, which is nice, however one woman discribed me personally using the words "dirty" and "Bastard". I'm not totally sure what i did to her but she wasn't happy. Nothings changed on the relationship side of things so, nothing to report there. Sucks to be me :)

saturday night cleaver
Well, saturday night we played one of the best gigs we've ever played. When we turned up to the bar for the "battle of thre bands" We all sighed, due mainly to the fact thet the guy who had told us that all the gear we needed to play was already at the bar, Was a lying wanker. When we realised that we didn't have any Amps or PA Danny fronted up to this bullshitting fuckwit and asked what the deal was his response was as follows
Danny: you told me on the phone that you had all the equiptment we needed to play?
Shithead: yeah, i know.
Danny: so why the fuck did you tell us that, when you obviously DON'T have the equiptment?
Shithead: Look, I'm the manager of the bar, what the fuck do i know about music equiptment!
Danny: You're a fucking moron ain't you?
Shithead: So, how many punters have you brought down tonight?
Danny: Are you insane?
This went on with the guy not twigging, at any point, that we were REALLY REALLY pissed off with him and ended with another band turning up with JUST enough gear to get us wired for sound.
Unfortunatly, the reguals at the pub really didn't give a shit about any of the bands playing, so whan we hit the stage we pulled out all the stops and raised the roof off the place and managed to get the whole bar jumping. when we came off stage it took me ten minutes to get to the toilet, what with everyone stopping me to tell me how good we were. which is nice.
When it came round to the winners, the whole bar was telling us we had won and as the announcement was made all eyes were turned to us.....and we lost, to the guys who brought the Amps and PA. the whole bar started booing and calling fix. which must have sucked for the winners, who were really nice guys. I'm not sure who was more pissed off actually, Us or Them. The Bass player was livid, he said that he hated doing "battles" and he even more hated being patronised by moron Bar managers.
All in all though, We all had a great night and have made friends with the band we lost to (they've asked to support us anytime we need them)

The Big Ska night out!!
Last night, Me and the boys from the band went down to one of the local venues on southend seafront to watch a huge line up of some of the best Ska bands that europe has to offer. TooTonic were playing when we turned up and i have to say i fell inlove with them as soon as they had started there first song. Combineing Phat ska with some of the best Vocals i've ever heard They were so tight it made my hair hurt!!! Following them up were a band from Eastern europe called the Chancer. Fronted by the smallest skinhead i have ever seen they were a interesting mix of old school ragga and new wave euro-punk and they managed to have the room jumping with little apparent effort on their part.
For me though, as always, the band that rocked the fucking roof off were THE BIG, Ed and the gang started the their set with the bluesest number in there bag of tricks, i feel that this may have been a kind of test for the crowd, to see if they turned off at the sound of somthing other than off-beat ska. As usual the crowd totally fell in love with the big within seconds of Them opening there bag of tricks and laying the first notes of "(she fucking wound me right up) what a cunt"
I order every Music love who reads this to check out their web site at www.thebig.org. your lives will be less bright if you don't :)

Role-play a go go
I had a great weekend this week. Me, Danny and Ash dragged our sorry butts to Maestrom near Nottingham. After an hour of being there were were hired to play a hen night and i have to say, theres nothing like being the centre of attention in a room full of pissed up women that brings about the precise balance of Terror and Enjoyment that is as close to S+M as i like to get!!! Talk about dangerous work, after two songs we were told off for being too bawdy but after a few more drinks, i think we were luck to get out with out pants on. After that we were the celebritys of the event and could'nt go anywhere without being chatted up.
After a few more gigs around various camps and bars we settled down to an enjoyable evening of drinking and jokes.
The drive home wasn't bad and having decided to take monday off, it all rounded out to a great weekend :)

Lights, camera, traction!!!!
Well, me and Lex got a script to film on friday, the guy wanted it in a week, which left us no time to prep. but in true "BLue hyena" spirit we panic-ed for a few minutes and then assembled our trusty filming crew. So, on sunday afternoon, after our "trusty" film crew dropped out we dragged together a rag tag gang of people, including a young scally lad called "Tel" who happened to be hanging around in a empty car park, to help us get this project done.
It was pretty hairy and we had to set up in the blind spot between two security cameras but in the end we got it all done.
And it looked pretty good, if i do say so myself. The only casualty was Leon, our leading man, who dispite putting in a stella performance, managed to get punched in the face by me, smash his face in on the concrete floor and almost freeze to death.

So i now expect that we'll all be big stars and make loads of money instantly.....ok back to reality....i'm still poor...but at least i'm not as sore as leon is this morning :)

Considering that for the past three days i've been bored shitless sitting in my works yard, in the middle of nowhere, with no work to do. What are the odds that on friday i get sent on a 576 mile round trip through some of the worst weather in recent weeks? ....pretty fucking high actually!!!!! thats right the one weekend that i have something cool planned and i've had to bust my balls to get home!!!! I'm knackered and sitting in yet another FUCKING service station!!! I hate them, i hate them so much it makes my bowels loose, it makes my hair move about and my finger nails itch.....ok.....i'm calm.... really i am......£6.99!! FOR A POXY BURGER AND MANKY CHIPS???!!! YOU MUST BE OUT OF YOUR TINY FUCKING MIND, YOU MISERBLE LITTLE ######################################

two in as many days....
You lucky, lucky people!!!
I'm currently at work skiveing in a service station so i thought i would chuck another entry in this thing so you can laugh at how empty and sad my life is.....ONLY JOKING!!! life is grand, got a nice job, big truck, a loving bunch of friends and I'm off to see a great band on saturday in reading!!! Sonic Boom Six are a band from liverpool, or somewhere near there, and they mix a pounding blend of Jah and punk, combined with clever lyrics to produce one of the best sounding bands i have ever heard, EVER!!
If they have a stage show as good as their sound, then i'll guarantee that you'll be hearing alot of them real soon.

Last night while chatting to a girl online i was evacuated from the building because a car bomb had been found outside. So, with a heavy heart i said goodbye and went back to my truck. when i woke up this morning i found out that it wasn't a bomb after all and it was just old car with wires hanging down. i'm not sure what the moral of that story was so i guess i learnt absolutely nothing yesterday, which goes to prove my nan wrong, cos she always says "you learn a new thing...################
