  • Wow. De Staadt are the band you should see if you only see one band in your whole year. Actually, make that your whole LIFE.

    10/10 obviously. Just brilliant. We hadn’t really even listened to them before we w […]

  • Sirs, Yet again one of your buses has declined to follow the rules, this time very clearly the driver’s own discrimination. The no 4 bus driver on the 237 route at Brent Lea bus stop argued to my Carer that he […]

    Over these last 5 years I’ve witnessed something that’s bemused me. It does seem to be the way of the world, at least in Britain. When men and women get married here, at that point the relationship seems out […]

  • Brilliant night last night. Maisie Peters was playing in a packed out Shepherds Bush. IBot gigging with iBot pubbing before it is about as good as it gets for me. More of that tonight in Brixton seeing the wacky […]

    The play was moving It was relocated to The Young Vic, because of the ceiling drama. Death of a Salesman is about a happy positive guy who is married with 2 children . He has such hopes for his future and that […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, Again 1 week, 1 day ago

    Well the Lightning Seeds were brilliant. Once again I went in the iBot, this time with Wendy and feeling a bit protected by that. But the curse of London transport hits me every bloody time!

    This time the tube […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, The week. 1 week, 2 days ago

    Well it’s been a full on week. Sunday my oldest mate ( no, not in age ) Mike J came to visit, with his son Olly. Jeez his son is now 22, and plays the sax for a living now, well as well as being in Music c […]

  • I can relate to how Michael feels, in every way. No, I’m not as badly off as he was, nowhere near. But his words could be my words, they are my words, the ones in my head that go round and round every day, still.

  • When you are in a wheelchair you can’t do zillions of things because you either you can’t even get near to em, in the first place, or once there you aren’t physically capable of partaking. But you can do thing […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, Spasms. 2 weeks, 3 days ago

    So what of my spasms? I’ve not really said much about those for a bit. I used to get ones where my legs would jerk and it would happen a lot at night, so that I couldn’t sleep. My spasms have altered so that for […]

  • Blimey. I just remembered that I had a dream about Michael Jackson last night! In my dreams I’m usually not in a wheelchair, and I wasn’t in this one. I’d been introduced to him in a sort of function the day b […]

  • A lovely fella I used to work with sent me this – and yes it’s true….

    I volunteer at a cancer hospital 5 days a month but thought you would find this funny 😂2 elderly patients brought this book in for our […]

    I just got a call from social services. She said that I ought have a hospital bed, that’s higher up and moves electronically. I said yes, that would be better, and can I have a double so that my girlfriend fits i […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, Gazza 3 weeks ago

    Well I have to say that Ga.R.y Numan is bloody good. If you don’t actually look at him, and just listen and ‘ be there’ he’s brilliant. If you look at him then you see a short rolypoly fella just a bit too old […]

  • Im going to see Gary Numan tonight. Not seen him before, but my buddy Leigh has been 95 times and said he’s brilliant. What I didn’t know is that Gazza has a very big gay following, having had a spell of gay […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, Aliens… 3 weeks, 3 days ago

    I don’t know… I worry about the lack of common sense

    Here’s Roger, the Lodger.

    I’d put my mobile phone on charge on the kitchen worktop, right.
    Now if you were to want to cook something in a frying […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, Roger …. 3 weeks, 3 days ago

    He came into the kitchen.
    He opened the flip up bin and just looked. Looked inside, as if he’d lost something in it.

    I said ‘ what are you looking for?’

    He said ( slowly ) ‘ can. I. Take. A. black. […]

  • Russ wrote a new post, Parp 3 weeks, 3 days ago

    A while ago I bought a remote control fart box machine. You press the button on a little fob and the fart speaker farts very loudly. I’d forgotten about it, but it was in the lounge somewhere near the TV.

    3 d […]
