Fightstar

Playing On The Friday Night Project, 10pm Channel 4 on 4th February
I was totally astounded when I heard Fightstar play live on last night! I was expecting them to be ok, but the radio would say they were rubbish anyway. But in actual fact; they were utterly utterly crap. Charlie proved that his voice isn’t powerful enough without the help of two other guys singing at the same time; the backing singer guy proved that he could sing totally flat; and the band altogether proved that they cannot write a song. For their launch song, you’d think they’d make it good wouldn’t you? Perhaps even the best song on the album; so if this is the standard to expect, I’m really not going to bother listening out for any more. The only thing that might rescue them is if they stop singing live. Perhaps the actual single recorded in the studio and fiddled with cleverly, sounds better; but I wouldn’t know as I am yet to hear it on the radio.
I’m sorry Charlie, but you should’ve stuck with Busted. I get the feeling that Charlie wanted to be a lot cooler than Busted, but he should’ve looked at his industry. By the time Take That split up they were definitely credible, and bordering on cool; and with the advantage that Busted were an original type of band, I think they would’ve hit that ‘cool status’ quite quickly. It really is a shame that he didn’t stick at it.

Making a social outdoor dining area
September 16, 2018
We have been dragging our heels for ages over buying a new set of outdoor furniture. Our old wooden table and chairs are well and truly rotting away. We have also had it in our minds to build a verandah at the back of the house, leaning against the kitchen wall. However, each spring has come along and we’ve ended up spending any spare money we’ve had on a holiday instead. So it hasn’t happened, but the idea was still there, and it made a choice on the garden furniture difficult to make…..

A review of ‘Things are what you make of them’ – Life advice for Creatives by Adam J. Kurtz
March 21, 2018
Rain kindly bought this book for me for Mothers’ Day, and I’ve since managed to fit in the odd five minutes here and there to read it. That’s one good thing about Things Are What You Make Of Them – it doesn’t take long to read! Oh that makes me sound like I don’t like it, which isn’t true. It’s a book for the current generation who take their entertainment and information in snippets; in bite-size chunks of Instagram stories. There are even perforated edges so you can choose your favourite little pages of words of wisdom to put up on your copper magnet board next to the foiled print that says Eat Sleep Create….

Approaching forty – Is it time to take out my piercings?
April 13, 2018
It has been on my mind for a while that maybe it’s time to take out some of the piercings in my face, and as I’m turning forty in a couple of days, I thought now would be a good time to do so! Over the years two other piercings have fallen by the wayside – I took out my belly-button ring when I was pregnant with Jude as it was getting in the way, and (rightly so) I felt my days of showing off my tummy in a crop top were over. Then about four years ago the ball on the end of my tongue piercing came off, and as I didn’t know what size to replace it with, I just took it out. Now don’t get me wrong; I’m a firm believer in wearing whatever the f**k you want, regardless of age, but there are a couple of reasons that have led me to think that it’s time for a change….
