trouble sleeping

Now that I’ve got heaps of music TV channels it’s not so much that I have trouble sleeping but I have trouble escaping the TV late at night cos there’s always another music video I want to see. I’ve been deprived of music videos for too long and now I can’t get enough. It happened when M2 launched in NZ and then again when C4 came along.

MTV2 must be targeting me late on weeknights…so far there’s been Broken Social Scene, Arab Strap – Speed Date(filmed in Edinburgh over Xmas by the looks) and Mark Ronson‘s animated graffiti vid. And now just as I thought I could drag myself away and go to bed a Cat Power track comes on. No whack talk in between vids either…they are definitely targeting me. At least I can get some work done at the same time. Stuart from Belle & Sebastian is gonna be on with Zane Lowe on MTV2 Friday night at 7 which is threatening to interfere with my pub time.

There’s a new Eagles of Death Metal video online – I Want You So Hard off the new album Death By Sexy. There’s also a dodgy Bikini Bandits Eagles of Death Metal video.

I found out about a couple more free wifi bars in Edinburgh today too – Mai Thai, 111 Holyrood Rd and The Regent at 2 Montrose Tce which is in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide 2006. I must get to Prestonpans to the Prestongrange Gothenburg microbrewery soon too!

Radiohead + Beck @ Meadowbank Edinburgh pre-sale tickets

There’s some pre-sale tickets for Radiohead and Beck at Meadowbank available at the Radiohead’s W.A.S.T.E shop. Radiohead’s site had a ‘system meltdown’ yesterday when they first went on sale at midday but it’s all sweet now.

Tickets for the other tour dates are available too but they’re selling out quick. This is just the pre-sale allocation so you can still get tickets when they’re available for general release if you’re quick.

A half deep fried pizza supper and a can of Irn Bru

oh yes we’re back in Scotland! Nowhere has deep fried pizzas like Scotland. Does anywhere else have deep fried pizzas at all?

We’ve moved to a tenement flat in Polwarth near the canal and a great deli, whose name I can’t remember. We nearly took a place in Stockbridge which would’ve been cool, but the Polwarth flat is much nicer.

We’re waiting for the Telewest guy to come on Friday and sort out our phone, internet and 100 channels of pap. No internet at home is rather stink. I can’t detect any wifi action around either.

Last Fish Curry

I just had my last Fish Curry. I was after a Bombay Duck actually but they weren’t available.

We just spent the whole day on a roach-infested train from Patnem Beach in South Goa to Mumbai. Patnem is real nice, if a little busy with dogs. I think the Goa Animal Welfare Trust is doing some cheap sterilisation thing at the moment – 250 rupees instead of 600. It’s a worthy cause!

Tonight in Mumbai I saw three immaculately groomed spaniels being walked. The local mongrels didn’t give them any grief or even sniff around them. Dogs live in a caste society too.
