    Dorset blue cheese soup

    I absolutely love blue cheese, but have not had blue cheese soup - Dorset or otherwise. I will have to make amends, me thinks. In the meantime, I'll have to settle for the drugs, which are due to land in 15 minutes time.

    Things that ur happy about

    I mentioned an IT problem that I've had to two IT whizz kids about half an hour ago. It's all to do with a proposed business venture that I propose to go in to. Not only did they nail it, they went beyond my wildest expectations. I had hoped that they would make a process a little bit shorter than I could manage myself. They blew that notion right out of the window, and reduced the amount of input that I have to complete down to a negligible amount. I could have squandered oceans of my limited time on this planet doing what I wanted to do, and now they've negated the need to, essentially, squander so much that time. I am, currently, one well happy bunny.

    Hello Woffy, Nice to hear from you. Hope all's well with you and yours.

    Franz Liszt

    I've just copied that, and am going to listen to it in full later, with my wife. I must admit that I did have a tiny sneak preview at after 6 minutes in, and can confirm that her dexterity is indeed insane. I'm looking forward to listening / watching the whole thing now. Thanks for posting.

    Has anyone here ever met Jarvis Cocker of Pulp?

    I guess I'll have to put my hands up in the air, and admit that it was indeed funny.

    Heatwave reveals ancient settlements

    I read about the markings in the land revealed near New Grange in Ireland about three weeks ago. Apparently they were discovered by two drone enthusiasts, who informed the relevant Irish authorities once they saw the unusual markings from above during the recent heat wave. Archeologists etc must be wetting their pants with excitement. As an aside, here's a story about a metal detector find near Glastonbury; http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-6048279/Amateur-treasure-hunter-30-unearths-Elizabethan-gold-signet-ring-worth-10-000.html

    Hello Imath8461, Yes, I've got to admit that the 2020 one might be a bit of an achilles heal for me too. I should imagine that the one where all the stops will be pulled out - both by the festival, and by the punters. I'll probably manage not to go for tickets in 2019, but may well be inclined for 2020. If I did get tickets for 2020, then that would be a suitable extravaganza to properly hang up my Glastonbury spurs.

    I reckon that I could stick just to the Greenfields, no problem. I'd probably have a problem sticking to any other area, in fact. I've always wanted more Greenfieds action than I've given myself, in the past.

    Has anyone here ever met Jarvis Cocker of Pulp?

    Yes, but it doesn't excuse his interruption of another performers act. I don't suppose Jarvis would give a flying fuck if MJ had stormed one of his performances, but that's not the issue. Yes, there were rumours about MJ kiddy fiddling etc, but at that stage they were just that - rumours. MJ had not been tried in a court, and convicted, so where's one of the fundamental facets underpinning our laws, that someone is innocent until proven guilty? There would have been a huge swathe of people who would have wanted to have seen MJ's performance without JC's involvement. If I'm honest I really like Jarvis Cocker as a character - in as much as that I know of him. However, even though his ad hoc performance might have tickled a soft spot on one level, I do firmly believe that he shouldn't have done it, and that it should never have crossed his mind (pissed or not) to consider that he had the right to do it, and then actually to go on and do it. Yes, Jarvis Cocker is cool as a cucumber, most probably a nice man, but made an error of judgement. I don't know if he apologised or not. Do you know? If he didn't, I think that he should have. We've all done mental things when pissed, and got away with them, but sometimes you've got to hold up your hands and take the wrap. Then again, that's just me applying my own moral compass. Maybe it's not as universal as I thought. Hum!

    Hello priest17, Yes, I was trying to infer that my self will not to do something I shouldn't, is less than legendary ie. I could well 'break' before now and T Day, and say to myself ' Fuck it, I'm going to try for tickets'. However, for now, I'm running with the notion of not going to the festival. Actually, I had a thought this morning about sneaking in to the festival somehow (No need for the Twix story, as I've / we've all read it) just to go to the efestivals meet up, and then leave again and go back home.

    Hello amfy, Yes, I think that I need time out alright. We've got a very small festival to go to in September, but that'll be alright. Then, I'll not be booking any festivals for next year after that. Something which I would normally do. It's good to hear that you've enjoyed the volunteering, and great to hear that it secures you entry to Glasto next year. I've got mates who volunteer with Birmingham Friends of the Earth, and they always seem to have a great time enjoying their time on and off from duties. All the best.

    So whose getting ready for next year?

    Hello eastynh, I've never watched any of the acts (except a snippet of Lady Gaga) on the telly. The thing is, I've never gone there for the music. It's always just been to have fun with my mates. We're spread about a bit geographically speaking and it was always the one place where we used to catch up as a mob, apart from the odd wedding (such as my own). Both me and my wife realized that we were paying for entertainment that we just weren't witnessing, because we just stayed at the camp site most of the time. You know what's known as the 'Naughty Corner' - I can't ever recall seeing it. Then again, can a lot of people! So, it's a pretty high price to stay in a field when you can do that at a camp site for so much less money. Me and the wife did try to venture out one year, but unfortunately my wife's son gave us some military grade acid (to be getting on with!) and we only made it as far as the Acoustic Tent from our camp site which used to be called 'Top Webbs Ash' - not sure what it's called now, as I only remember the old name for it. Anyway, later that festival we tried again to explore, but only got as far as the place selling chips at the bottom of the hill from Top Webbs Ash. Once we got there, we decided to call our adventuring to a halt, and lay down in front of the counter area of the food outlet, and just talked for hours, before walking back up the hill, before talking again for hours. That's as far as we got the whole festival! Yes, I'd love to be there really. However it would be costly, and I'd be using up the ticket of someone who would get more out of it. I really have had a fine innings on the Glasto front, and would hate to spoil that run by going to it when it no longer has the same impact on me. Also wishing you (and everyone on here) the very best of good fortune on T Day.

    Hello Avalon_Fields, Yes, there's a temptation within me, and one which will only get stronger as we nearer T Day. However, I MUST be strong! OMG, I've just realized that I know, that you know, that I have the breaking strain of a Kit Kat!

    So whose getting ready for next year?

    Hello JoeyT, Thank you. Yes, it is on my own terms. I've done a load of Glastonbury's both in good weather and in the worst of weather, and they've all, without exception, been great. However, the place is too large and frenetic for me to handle now. I'm seriously slowing up nowadays. I went to Bestival recently, and even found getting around that a trudge - mind you, the scorching heat didn't help. So, if I'm to go festivals in the future they're going to have to be smaller, cheaper ones, and not very far away from me either. Wishing you all the best on T Day.

    My Glastonbury days are over now, so I'll not be doing any preparing. I'll be trying to get an efester his tickets on T Day though, so will get caught up in that Glastonbury excitement. I've managed to do 20+ Glastonbury's, so it was a fair innings.

    Any older clubbers want a buddy

    Hope you hook up with some people for the Friday. I've never been, and probably couldn't handle it. After a while thumping dance music really fucks with my brain - or maybe that's just what I've taken that does that! Anyway, have a good 'n'.
  22. Be careful out there. You can come across (yes, I did actually say that.) the wrong stuff you know. One minute your just one of life's puerile perverts looking 'stuff' up, and the next your trying to fully comprehend stuff like this;
  23. I see that you've moved on from late night bikini porn! lol Those do indeed look the part. I've lost track of how many bent normal tent pegs I've got. I somehow can't seem to be parted from them. They are about as useful as a balloon or holding anything down, but still they've got to stay. Everynow and again, I get a lump hammer out and straighten them, while under my breath saying 'You will work, you will work, you little bastards!'. It is never the case though. Once back in the bag with the 'hard knock' tent pegs that actually work, they just mentally disintegrate, and start dreaming of having been used to make tea pots instead. So, then you take them out of the bag, again, put them in your one hand, and bash their little heads with a hammer in to the ground. Only this doesn't happen. Instead their structural integrity resembles that of Bambi's legs,and they buckle in a spectacularly spastic fashion. So, yes, the above pegs seem like they may be the business. Excuse me.

    Things that ur happy about

    I've been more than lucky enough to fly Business Class on long haul, a fair number of times (it was an inside blag, your honour!). Anyway, it's the f'ing the bollocks. However, even though you can lie down in your own bed, it doesn't guarantee a good night's sleep. Although, if you haven't just previously taken a shed load of class A's, you should be alright!
