My Monday Morning Ipod Shuffle

Just like a deck of randomly falling cards - the ipod's first three tracks this morning were........

Interzone by Joy Division

You Don't Know What Love Is by Chet Baker

Policecar by Larry Wallis

and then I ended up playing this on heavy rotation very loud....

Flooded by Von Sudenfed

Mark E Smith should be Mayor Of London - that would sort us all right out-ahh!

Iggy and the Stooges to headline

Iggy and The Stooges are to headline at this years Get Loaded Festival on Clapham Common Sunday Aug 24 2008.

You can buy tickets from tomorrow at 09:00GMT from here.

Fingers poised for 9am tomorrow - I shall be purchasing a few tickets and practising my topless streak for the inevitable stage invasion. And then he might do this.....maybe...

Eyes down for a full house.

Enn (then) ui Did This

There has been a lot of talk of blogging ennui of late here here and here especially. I found this picture today while actually searching for a person believe it or not. I guess this is what non-bloggers do in their spare time? It is a penny pyramid. A pyramid. Made out of pennies. Pennies painstakingly piled up to form a perfect pyramid. I have to say that would send my ocd tendencies raging. Quite frankly I would rather be blogging about drivel than aligning the 8,500th penny stack while straining my elasticated waistband crimplene trousers. For some reason I assume people who make pyramids out of pennies wear hideous man-made fibre garments. Think of the static with that Axminster. Ouch!

Bored? At a loose end - just go here - drivetime ennui chez Rockmother .

Mix Wit Rockmother

Here you go - I'm not one for bandwagons but I am currently experimenting with mixmaxmuxtape thingies - I'm still preferring podcasts my little choux buns! The Romo For Real 17 will be up soon - in the meantime you can always trawl my podcast archive LISTEN WITH ROCKMOTHER .
Recent raver reviews:
Bob Swipe "It's better than horse".....Istvanski "That Rockmother's a slave to the rhythm she really is"....Batbitch "I would slip it in anytime".....Reggie Parsons "Makes me want to crack open a bottle of something special and inhale deeply"......Dick Headley "Yet again no Barry Manilow Special but we live in hope".....

You will have to listen to this for now - or fast forward or click to next blog or something.

I Am Common As Muck

Yes - I am temporarily relieving my controlled love of gambling by rather commonly dragging my six year old to the bookies - our annual jaunt to place bets on horses! So exciting. My general tip: Irish trainers - you can't go wrong.

We are betting on:
Comply Or Die or Slim Pickings
Dun Doire
Butlers Cabin

My tips for good e/w outsiders are:
Idle Talk
Point Barrow
Cornish Sett
Madison De Berlais

The going is currently dry - should this change I will be adjusting my bets.

Current favourites are:
Snowy Morning
Slim Pickings

Place your bets.

HURRAY! We got 1st and 4th place - £48!

Podcast Roadshow Tourbus Appeal

I have currently noticed that this quality vehicle is for sale on ebay.

LH drive with original DDR bumper sticker: I bet that's seen some Checkpoint Charlie action
Engine: VW - 1.1 wow!
In Car Audio: None - it's ok Listen With Rockmother will be broadcasting forth live
Comfort: None - we don't care
Safety Features: None - all the more rock'n'roll when you are taking a bend at 85mph kids
Body: Bits of soggy paper stuck together and dried out until goes hard - classy

Look at that perfect ill-fitting nylon stripe - I simply must have it. Look at the really basic switches and orange brown plastic door covers. Pure beauty.

Think about it - it is the perfect podcast summer roadshow vehicle - at a really awful seaside town near you. It is a thing of beauty and I am sorely tempted. Perhaps we will be the first ever entrant for Staples To Naples that can drive and podcast at the same time.

Oh Mr Rigsby - A Podcast?

Yes Miss Jones - just for you. Don't be ashamed, lots of people do it...I know...cast their pod to the world for all to hear.

Oh Mr Rigsby. How does one turn you on? I mean turn it on. Goodness, I don't know what came over me. Please? Oh Mr didn't mean it like that. I only came down to see if you could open this jar of Picallili...

Yes - The Romo For Real 16 is HERE for all to strain their ears too. No 17 will be up within the week.

Sleep. Sleep. I need sleep.
