World’s Biggest Band

Tuesday, December 12th, 2006

My friend Paul’s rudely named band, “Gloryhole”, claim to be the biggest band in the world. I can’t find anyone to contradict them - even The Polyphonic Spree only come in close at “about 29 members, we sort of lost count”.

Gloryhole’s “32ish” is a bit of a cheat ‘cos they don’t all play at the same time. Still, it is quite an achievement getting that number of people together to put on a gig. And it’s the quality that counts.

Friday Late at the V&A

Monday, December 4th, 2006

If you were quick enough, you may have read the entry on here for “Friday Late at the V&A”.
If you weren’t, then I’ll just say we had a great time.

My internet service provider would like to apologise for the fact that they destroyed the last week’s worth of entries on my website, including the Friday Late at the V&A entry. No, actually, that’s a lie. They didn’t want to apologise. In fact they didn’t even want to own up to it.

Their response was, in fact, to send me an email offering to sell me a service whereby they backup my website. Funny, that - my double glazing business sells a similar service, where for just a small fee we don’t come around your house and break all your windows.

No free link here to a dodgy service provider that doesn’t deserve it, but their name’s eUKHost if you want to know who to stay away from.

Wonder how long this entry will last before there’s another “accident”.

Anyway, to make up for the disappointment you have undoubtably suffered, here’s a bonus picture of me looking silly. This is me wearing the measuring equipment for the fun fair ride mentioned in the Dana Centre article.
