One of my favourite Peep Show clips

More News From Nowhere

I've changed the name of my blog.
"More News From Nowhere" is the last song on the new Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds album.
I've been having "those days" recently, not bad days by any stretch, just days that pass by without any difference from the last. I heard this song, and it blew me away, I love when a song finds you when you least expect it and sums up exactly how you feel, as if somehow by magic.

That's all.

Hmm.. I just took off my earphones in work, and the song from Peep Show is on the radio.
Stange eh!?

Worlds First (p) Review!!! Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!

Tomorrow I will be listening to the new Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds album. Expect a really really undescriptive half arsed review some time in the next 4 months.
Why am I so harsh on myslef? And why do I keep talking to myself on this blog, and putting myself down? Why have I repeated (with some variation i must admit) the fact that I put myself down twice (or is three times now). I must be trying to tell myself something, now I'm talking to myself through my blog again..... this conversation with myself could go on for a while.

I think I should be more positive in order to cheer the inner Mark up.

Tomorrow I will be listening to the new Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds album. Expect an insightful review, so revealing and hopeful you'll think it's been lifted from a passage of the bible that has yet to be discovered.

That's much better.

The last days of jivemonster

Over the past little while I've been having trouble with the name of my blog... is it jivemonster? Or is it Really? Why? Honestly. Or could it be simply, Mark Orford dot blogspot dot com? I'm growing tired of using jivemonster, I've used jivemonster since my very first yahoo account many moons ago. I like the name jivemonster but I liked it more when I was 16/17 now I'm 25, I think it might be time for "jivemonster" to gracefully be laid to rest.

Dear Blog

Mark: Why have I been neglecting you for so long?

Blog: Because you've been off with you "friends" Deano, Clare, Medb, Elaine and Brendan gettingdrunk. I haven't liked it at all, there are random internet users waiting to hear your half
thought through musings on stuff that probably happened two weeks ago.

Mark: Like The Eels 1 second advert that they tried to get on the broadcast on the superbowl?

Blog: Exactly!

Mark: Or the Super Furry Animals gig I went to last night, or, going to Niagra falls?

Blog: You got it buddy!!
