I know where Micky Dolenz used to live
Friday night madness and you find that again, there is nothing on the TV and you are too broke to go out. Fear not, Weasel is at hand to fill your life with joy.
Yes, I know where Mickey Dolenz used to live - Britten Street, SW3
Richard Wattis - Ovington Square, SW3
Captain Oates - South Circular Road, Putney
Vincent Van Gogh - Hackford Road, SW9
Any more? Oh, there is a rule: you have to have stayed, at least overnight, in the same road or street or place or have lived there.
Aaaah. Names that conjour up so many fond memories. "Hey, hey we're the Van Goghs".
Soundscapes: I was driving one day and a piece of music came on the radio and blew my mind. It was Shostakovich. What's nice about the radio is how it pops little things into your head and reminds you to check them out later.
This soundscape might not do that, but try and get all the songs and gibberish without googling:
Saw a few episodes of "The Prisoner" on ITV Player. You have to be in the mood. Think Cabinet of Dr Caligari.
My moment of the week? Realising that it was not worth watching Prime Minister's Question Time. Not so great moment of the week? Realising that this has been a long month and trying to find a lot more things to cook with peppers and pine nuts.
While Shepherds watched their flocks by night, all seated on the ground, a black reggae DJ started messing with their brains. ?
I try to light the fire every day, haul the fuel, empty the grate, fiddle with sticks. I'd rather be a liar fighter than a fire lighter.
