Another Wedding Update plus Miscellaneous Tat
The bride and groom's "first dance" has been finalised! It was going to have been one of a number of the trippy pieces of wonderment off The Flaming Lips' album "Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots" (as hinted at in VSX's December teaser-preview), but we've only gone and gone for somerthing a lot more mainstream, more recognisable, more relevant for us instead... unless the chef laces the wedding breakfast with 'shrooms, I guess.
On the subject of music, because let's face it the only thing that the internet is really fit for is people's music lists, there now follows a listing of the CD's duly burned for our honeymoon. There's nothing suprising or inspiring here, but sod it, I'm hardly John Peel reincarnate.
Air - Talkie Walkie Amajuba - Like Doves We Rise (2004 Cast) Arcade Fire - Funeral DJ Shadow - Endtroducing Eminem - Encore FSOL - ISDN Goldie Lookin Chain - Greatest Hits Graham Coxon - Happiness In Magazines Kaiser Chiefs - Employment Kasabian Kasabian (again? what's that doing there?)

Other things - the speech is nearly done. Thankfully my free play-time on my downloaded Ricochet Lost Worlds demo has came to an end, and despite it being the most addictive Arkanoid (ancients - read as: Breakout) style game that I've ever played, I'm damned if I'm going to shell out for the full version until after the wedding, so that's another distraction out of the way. Now if only someone could DOS attack the Boulderdash website...
Miscellany: I was watching a bit of Animal Park on BBC1 just now, and I got all nostalgic for the birthing-pains of this blog - my fifth ever VSX post was about Animal Park - the last time I've seen it! Ah, its nice looking back through the archives - I was a lot more focussed about this website's mission in those days...
Anything else whilst I'm rambling? (Aside: how many bleedin' blogs have the words "ramblings" or "meanderings" etc in their titles? Too fracking many, that's how many.)
I was going to tell you about how I find sport-reporting incredibly boring on the whole, but that I'm hooked on the reports about the crappy amateur teams that you get in the free local newspapers. However that would lack sufficient excitement considering my pending nuptials. Likewise any editorial about my fascination with the Classified Ads (examples: "Oak five bar gate, 12' long, 4' high, £50, buyer collects" (!), "1950s distressed (?) kitchen cabinet", or the bargainacious "Free cast iron bath, white, 1950s style").
Nope, instead I will just tell you that I am very very excited about this forthcoming weekend...
