Friday Diary - including spotified 111015

I just don't remember this but supposedly we ended up  last week listening  Tom  Waits. Certainly we began there last night - but it was like listening  to Daniel O'Doneel with a bad cold. Slick Radio 2light listening, pretty hellish. Must have been a recent album or something.

Luckily i saved the day, which is something  i don't get to say often, by turning  to our lord. Something  else i don't get to say often.

How I converted to our Lord Creator.

Ok the 'our' bit is a bit gratuitous. But it all began couple of months ago when Radio 2 wasn't playing Mama Cass's 'It's Getting Better', and slapped on 'Kingston Town'  (Not NOT UB40's turgid version) but, well, but frankly by who. Rushed off to dig up  the playlist for that hour and found: Lord Creator. And of course forgot his name within  a few days. Until this week when is just sort of appeared as if having  been through a long lost walk in  the woods of my cavernous head.

I have been getting  excited about having  a grown-up  chrismas party in  our flat. It involves me upping  the DIY ante and getting  a lot more done by December, but i will try. I want: Mullet wine (of course), sweetish german white wine, Dress:  Lounge Suits (saw that on  my mothers 80th birthday party invite), Buffet (random odd vegetarian-isms, bhajis, samosas), and Lord Creator on  all night. Much as i would like to inflict Seefeel on  everyone, i just dont think guitar electronica is everyone's cup of tea, but Lord Creator's missing  link between Calypso and early Reggae is fantastic. One minute he's getting  his girl home in  time with 'Don't Stay out Late' with 50's crooner / doo wop but with brilliant brass soloists (but this extra distorted rhythm guitar), then he's calypsoing with Ma & Pa. Genius. Perfect gentle party music. Even earlier than Desmond Dekker, but heading  in  that direction. (I saw Desmond Dekker twice (or three time) in  London, brilliant).

Vegetarian still? Probably not.
I found myself having  a sausage roll yesterday.  This last week has been distinctly lose on the food front. And had more John Dorey last night.

I like this 15 minute recipe we've brewed up:
  1. Fry an onion / and or leek, garlic, chilli - to taste, salt and pepper, with lid on. Not too hot.
  2. Put fish in, in  2 bits. Medium heat, with lid on.
  3. Turn fish after a few minutes. drop a bag of Spinach on top, with lid on.
  4. When Spinach has collapsed / cooked Serve.
So good bye Carol Vorderman, i certainly enjoy vegetables much more, and mainly eat just that, but by heck black pudding's a treat.
