The Prodigy

Playing on the Other Stage at Glastonbury 2009

They certainly lost the battle of who to see amongst all the clashes on the last night of the festival. The crowd was their smallest I’ve seen at Glastonbury before, but it was full of the hardcore fans, so it was a fantastic atmosphere.

To be honest, I would have preferred to see Blur. We did see them before in 1995, but it was so long ago, I hardly remember it, and we aren’t likely to ever see them again, but I was outnumbered by the rest of the family who would all rather see The Prodigy. We started at the Pyramid stage for the beginning of Blur (who were great) and then raced round and actually got there in time for the beginning of The Prodigy’s set.

We’ve seen them twice before at Glastonbury, once at Reading and once at V. I think I’ve preferred them before when Keith was the main stage presence. They’ve obviously decided that Maxim is now taking over and I didn’t like it so much. I’m going to sound really old now, but all he did was swear. Every other word was the F word and you could tell everyone was getting tired of hearing it. It just sounded like he was trying too hard to look cool or somthing. It really got on my nerves and that spoilt the performance for me; it was constant.

So; complaint out the way; I still enjoyed myself and the group did a fantastic show full of energy despite being ten years older since we last saw them (I can’t believe that!). Keith still picked up the vocals on his songs and was fantastic. They did an even mix of new tracks from their latest album and classics like Outer space, Breath, Firestarter, smack my bitch up and smoothly missed out their less popular albums completely. Me and the kids danced the whole time and really enjoyed ourselves.

Bedroom renovating part 1 – Making a reclaimed rustic wooden headboard
October 22, 2016
I watched back the September Favourites You Tube video I made, and I don’t think my tone of voice was sarcastic enough when I said that next time I’d be in the bedroom with a white headboard with fairy-lights and a vase of flowers and candle in the background! (This seems to be the setting of 99% of monthly favourites You Tube videos.) When I made that video we had no headboard at all; flaky plaster; holes in the ceiling and a lot of mess. Last weekend though, we got busy in the bedroom(!)…..
Review of the L’Oreal Voluminous Superstar Mascara
February 15, 2017
On holiday in America in 2015 I bought the L’Oreal Beauty Tubes mascara. This was amazing, but when I went back last year, I couldn’t find it again. Instead, L’Oreal had this mascara, called Voluminous Superstar. It is one of those mascaras with two ends – a white coat first to lengthen your lashes and then the actual mascara to go over the top. This was just what I was looking for as I’ve liked those kind ever since I bought the Maybelline XXL volume mascara. (See my review here from 2005)……

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….
