It's when Trump gets assassinated.
Hello little doggy,
My, you are a nice dog,
What did you just say then?
You could do some tricks! Oh, good, then will you show me?
My word that's a good one!
Would you like a cigarette?
No you can't, they're bad for you!

If you swap numbers for letters, 26,8,17 equates to Z,H,X. Now if X is a kiss, and what's Z if it isn't looking back on an S, then what D L are we supposed to think about H? "Save the Date" could refer to the fruit of a palm, or a gift in the hand, but why "save"? What was lost? Well if we look it up in the OE, lost becomes LOSED, and eating dates can loosen your bowels, so we lose the vowels, then what are we left with? Pounds shillings and pence! Le Saved Date! That's right! You've won Dusty Bin!

fvck man, you've still got it :D Your tossed off asides are still my up all nights trying to impress.

I'm hoping it's LSD or at the very least the bumming shed dvd.

I'm fully prepared for it being a live event. Being a shut-in no-marks, my default setting is disappointment and feeling like I'm missing out, so no love lost.

I probably *was* up all night tossing off.



Yeah, I'd say it's an event. Shame, I'm sure they're very lovely but they're not Cardiacs gigs and I do live at the tip of Cornwall's boot.

It's a Saturday, so i'd imagine it's another Salisbury event, rather than just a release.

I'm hoping the live Spratleys thing will happen again then, as i went along to the Lexington and it was stunning. I'm sure it's been noticed but there's a nine-minute summary.

I suppose i should have posted a review... the doing of 'Flap Off You Beak', with Kavus; and 'Don't You Ail...' done twice.

Nice to see old faces still living and breathing here; Worms still talking bollocks. :)

Yes indeedy-do.

In case anyone has the good sense not to be on Faecebook...

It's Timmy Smith here.

That's right (that one). Just sticking my putrid head above the parapet of beautiful pop and unlike you bods i find it near impossible to use one of them computer things or to hold a pen, but there is a bright light getting in my face and getting on my wick. But i digress cos this letter is by no means a mermear channel for my brain thoughts since they swapped my brain for raspberry jam. Things are getting so much better for me! Right Spratley Japs. Im not sure how many people have heard this band but it was a groovy little outfit i got together a couple of decades back. There came from it's an album which was and still is my favourite tunes full of mischief wot i am proud of even above them mighty cardiacs i'm running out of steam the noo. But see them live and witness something you will never forget they completely knocked my block off!!

:) Looks like he's got an eye-typer or summat.

:lol:

When my inevitable stroke/heart attack double whammy comes, if I survive, all of my energy will be spent conjuring up new spiteful ways to make my carer feel depressed and/or guilty.
Hats off to harry nilsson, nay, Timmy Smith for having the fullness of soul to transcend the maudlin daily grind and spit sunshine into our collective face.

Spratleys Japs really is the tits. I spend most summers locked away inside, hiding under my bed but a few years ago, of a summer, encouraged by tablets, I took to wandering around the farmers fields near me as the sun went down until it came back up again, arguing with myself, imbibing and shoving drugs up my bum, that was always a mainstay on my earphones, one of the best summers of my life and I'll never forget it.
