Ireland

Once again is there the significant chance of proper violence in Irealnd.

Quite lately many people have been complainging about the "anti-British" film about the Irish stuggle and what not. Much complaints about how we the British have been shown as evil tortutrous bastards. Of course we're never like that. And of course we have no involvement with the concentration camp in Cuba and the occupation of Iraq and our involvement in pretty much most countries where the US has decided to intervene for the good of it's people, I mean the good of that countries people.

Anyway, I doubt anyone would be complaining about the "pro-British film", if it were ever made, of heroic British soldiers sorting out Ireland as teh Irish couldn't do it themselves.

Either way it's the red tops showing through their inability to take into account facts and not to write to sell, but to inform. Does it worry anyone else that I, a 17 year old, could write at the same level as the top editorial writer of The Sun?

P.S Please excuse any mistakes. Most will be due to the drink I have consumed while away from the pc.

Thank you to the rhythm section....

Well I'm currently writing this while in hiding from visiting family. Luckily they'll be gone soon.

Anyway, I shall recap on my current events.

On Friday I went out to a couple of friends house of where I drunk maybe more beer than I should have done as my memory is near blank of the whole time of going to Aldis and seeing Peggy Sue and the Pirates at the Lido. They were absolutely great, excellent voices and definitley a refreshing sound around here. Supposedly me and a few friends clapped along the whole way through. Chances are we were probably out of time, so I apologise on all our behalfs to whoever we annoyed. I really hope they come back soon so I can see them again.

Next up was Blood Red Shoes of whom I saw before at the Lido quite awhile ago. They were brialliant as usual and it was great to see them once again. Although, disappointingly they didn't play Bless His Heart, but ah well, it was very enjoyable all the same.

Overall an excellent night, yet very blurred. One of the best moments being when I went up to retrieve my lost passport from the bar, upon recieving it I ordered some drink and got served. Of course, had the woman checked the passport she'd just given me she would have known I was underage.

Hmmm, there's a strange ant that's been living on my computer desk for a couple of days now. I'm not sure on a name yet. I was thinking Anty, keep it simple. I wondering if he's preparing the room for the annual ant invasion, but we shall have to see.

Sweet Home Margate

On the drive home fro my exam today I realised I suffered from/enjoyed micro-nationalism (as mentioned in an Arts and Elbows entry) for Margate. Not sure why, but I do love the place despite it's many faults. Although, that won't stop me from leaving as soon as I get the chance.

My last exam for 10 days today. A nice 2 hours of Psychology. Nothing too bad, got through it, although time seemed to drag on and on as it does when you've got nothing left to write little messages to the examiner.

A very strange find I had looking through all these Thanet blogs was a picture of my media teach Mr.Moran with a fake blue mohican and pink tribal paintings on the side of his head on UnderOurInfluence.


A very wierd thing to find indeed. Ah well, I'm sure I can use this picture to my advantage somehow, although I expect I'll fail at that. Either way, it made me laugh.

Well, tomorrow I'll be off into Margate for the day, gonna look around a little retro shop that appeared awhile back (it's RAF/mod signs attracted me straight away). Gotta find myself a new jacket and black thin tie anyway. After that I'll be off to a friends to drink up while watching Blues Brothers, Animal House, Footbal Factory, or whatever else takes our fancy. The evening holds for me a night in the Lido of which I'll be sure to write up a little review of the bands.

Departure

Mr.Eastcliff Richard has closed his blog. A shame indeed, he being one of the main reasons that made me actual bother to do this blog. Let's hope he may one day grace us with a blog or two in the future. His wit shall be missed.


Well today I had another exam, 2 and a half hours of sociology. Luckily I was sat next to a window, but all I got a glimpse of was kids walking around and the occasional giant segull flying around. My last exam until after next week is Psychology. Wish me luck and all that.

My chances of getting out to what is shaping up to be an excellent night at the Lido were sliced a bit today as my parents discovered my borken bed. It's all fixed up now and I'm hoping they'll become senile and forget before Friday. Maybe I could just hit them with a frying pan.

Hailstorm

Just had a hailstorm appear here in Margate. It was quite fun to watch, hail bouncing in the grass and the occasional flash across the sky. It's just kind of descended into summer rain.

I'm quite suprised the few flys buzzing around my garden aren't being crushed into the ground by the rain really.

Storms always remind me of childhood when, with the first boom of thunder, we'd dash to the window to watch the whole storm through, depsite anything that was on TV. Nowadays, I have a glance outside and instantly return to whatever I was doing, which happened to be watching Quadrophenia with some toast. Good toast might I add. Good film aswell.


I wish there were still mods around today. I shall have to start a mod revival or something. Although, I suppose I could do without those scooters. They were a bit shit to be honest.

Also, does anyone else find it strange that Phil Daniels is on Eastenders now. Everytime I see him on there I have the strange hope he'll next appear in suit and parka and lead a small group of mods to terrorise the Square. Alas, I doubt this is going to happen anytime soon, but I'd certainly enjoy the soap more if it did.

Morning, morning, morning.

With my stomach filled with a couple of bowls of Weetos, I feel ready to do nothing as usual with my free day. Chances are it will include sitting on the computer constantly refreshing in a futile attempt to see if anything new has been put up anywhere. Plus I can't go out because I'm grounded.

I think that last sentence made me realise I'm possibley the youngest blogger in Thanet that I know of. I'm 17 by the way. Well thats what I get for bringing 10 people into my house, dropping a bucket of vomit while running down some stairs and breaking a bed. I could tell the full story, but I can't really remember it. I know we met a man who looked alot like Meatloaf and one of my friends fell down some stairs at the church on Northdown Road and smashed her face in.

Anyway, hopefulyl I'll be able to get leave to go the Lido on Friday. It's not somewhere I really enjoy, but Blood Red Shoes are returning to Margate to delight us with their music and it's not something I really want to miss all that much.

Also, as being a teenage with a blog, this gives me the right to complain and moan about nothing at all, like "Oh woe is me, the girl I love has grown an extra 3 arms and a fish wing on the back of her head". Well, actually, that's not happened, but ti would give me something interesting to stare at during my exams.

On the subject of my exams (A-levels), I done my last General Studies exam yesterday. If you've ever taken a General Studies exam you'll know how utterly useless it is. One of the questions being:

"A man has a chicken, a fox and a bag of grain. The chicken cannot be left alone with the grain and the fox cannot be left alone with the chicken. The man must get all of them across a river, but he can only fit one thing on the boat at a time, including himself. How does he get everything across?"

I'm not entirely sure what that tells a Uni or employer about me, but ah well.

Luckily, during the exams so far The Blues Brothers soundtrack has been on repeat in my head, so that's kept me slightly entertained.

Back under a new alias...

Inspired by Eastcliff Richard, Thanet Life, Oonagi and Skin of Stars, I have now restarted my blog. I've got rid of my old posts and changed my name as that previous blog was more of a personal thing. This one of the other hand will be much more public, hopefully recording events and my opinions.

Thanks for reading if you do.
