An Englishman And An Irishman Are Riding A Bike...

Just a quick post...

Ted has been over since Wednesday. That evening Ted, The Viking and I went to see Paul Weller at the Hammersmith Apollo. Unlike the last 3 times that I've been to see him, which were acoustic gigs, this one had the full works...electric guitars, drums, keyboards...and it was utterly INCREDIBLE! The Mods were out in force, plus a bunch of "normal" looking people. Met a great couple, and the guy noticed the All Mod Cons t-shirt & asked where I got it from. Told him that it was my design & that I'll try and get him one made up. So I've been scanning the net for a company to make up a few of them, but they seem to be fairly expensive unless you get loads. Looks like I'll have to wait until I go back to Heidelberg again!

Took the 1st video in the Apollo, it's of From The Floorboards Up...I wanted to get more but I just couldn't sit still enough to use my camera. He even played Eaton Rifles, All On A Misty Morning, Broken Stones & The Changing Man (song of the week!) and a whole host of other songs. Hope you enjoy the clip...(dodgy sound quality at one point, I moved my finger over the mic on my phone)



I even managed a few beers without passing out! Nice!

As with all "boys", Ted has been eyeing up the Little Steed. So I told him to go for a spin on it (like his arm needed twisting, as IF). Took a little video of Ted trying to come in my front gate & into the house with the Steed...take a look at the video to see his efforts...and the one in the middle is All Mod Cons having a go (please note the Englishness of AMC offering to make a tea from the kitchen)...



Probably more to come...who knows!

>Ted trying to come in my front gate & into the house

What was the objective... up the stairs and in to a bedroom?

All Mod Cons said...

David - Objective? You need an objective to do stuff like this? Erm, I think it was just getting through the gate & in the door. Mainly because it was "something" to do. Adults + BMX = Infantile Behaviour.

It's great hanging out with friends and goofing off, isn't it?

Princess Pointful said...

Glad to hear you had another spectacular date with Mr. Weller!

All Mod Cons said...

Beth - Indeed it is! Working sucks, skiving off rules!

Pointful - I really WISH I could adequately convey just how spectacular it was *sigh*

Beth said...
