Ground Chalk On The Walk Home

Yeah ok, serious lack of any postings recently. Have been stupidly busy. Not complaining though, plenty of people out of work at the moment and I'm very happy to not be one of them.

Something I have noticed in the last 2 weeks is that everyone standing in line at the supermarket till looks like they are about to commit a religious fanatic style mass suicide. Death by fatal grapefruit stabbing. Straight in the ear.

I also saw a guy buy a bar of chocolate, 2 multi-packs of crisps (after he saw them on offer in the queue so it was a definite after thought), and 8 2.5 litre bottles of Pepsi Max. Yes, that's 20 litres of caffeine and sugar. This was also done because he saw them on offer whilst waiting to pay for his chocolate. It was £1 a bottle. It would have to come down to around 1p a bottle for me to buy it. Bloody horrible stuff. Just as well Tampax weren't on offer really. Anyway, moving swiftly on...

Song of the Week is To Be Someone by The Jam. Haven't had a Jam song in a while, but I'm showing this tune loads of love at the moment, especially the live versions. Not going to bother to post the lyrics this time, they're pretty easy to understand. This song has been featured on this blog before, but it was the cover version by Noel Gallagher, and was originally on the 1979 album...All Mod Cons (Robyn, check out the version on your copy...).

Will do! Thanks!

Did you hear good ol' Noel Gallagher quit Oasis today? Shock me shock me shock me. Says he hates his brother or something.

All Mod Cons said...

Robyn - Yeah, heard about that. Headline news over here. Again. They're always splitting up. To be honest, I'd like to see what Noel can offer up in the way of a solo album. I really like his acoustic stuff when he's been on his own (see MTV Unplugged for a good example or his gig at the Lowry Theatre Manchester). Oasis as a group have gone downhill over the last few albums. I didn't even buy the latest one.

How very weird ... How did he carry all that cola home? Or did he drink it on the spot?

All Mod Cons said...

Gledwood - No idea fella. He would've had to double bag all of it. Must've weighed some too.

That stuff in that large of a quantity will rot yer guts out. I don't have the need to go into huge supermarkets, in my hood we have alot of butchers, green grocers etc. Much more of a pleasant shopping experience...

arbyn said...

Yeah I think this is a good move for Oasis. His acoustic stuff IS good. And I don't even like Oasis :)

If you fire me over your address I'll drop you a couple of CD's that you won't have heard before. I'll personally guarantee that you'll like them!

That guy must have had a van waiting for all that coke. Or some kind of spontaneous bacardi party going on. Or a desire to no longer have teeth.
