So, I'm back in Canterbury now. It's good to be back to all the little comforts of home. I have a phone in my room now too (thanks to kimble I presume) which is also good. Getting up at 6am this morning for the journey was less good though, and I'm thoroughly tired now.

Random thoughts that occured to me in the car on the way down:

Prince Phillip and George Bush are clearly having a stupidity competition. "We should ban tourism in London" was pretty good, but I still think "do you have black people in Brazil?" beats it.

It is inherently unfair that when my parents were in their teens they grew up to the music of the early and mid sixties, and in the same period of my life I had the mid and late nineties.

Bits of Back in the USR are very Beachboys-esque.

Um, and that's about it. Not a very interesting day -- or if it was then I'm too tired to remember it.

Well, naturally "Back in the U.S.S.R" was Beach Boys-esque, as it was written specifically as a spoof of the perky beach bum songs done by groups such as the Beach Boys. I never really liked that song until I understood its point as making fun of other songs like that. It's a great piece of musical literature. :)

I figured it was probably intentional. I'd just never realised until today. Nobody ever accused me of being perceptive.

One learns something new everyday. :)

Unfair to me. I mean, granted there was some shit and some good stuff from both, but I bet that if you took 100 chart hits at random from both, I'd like more of the 6os ones than the 90s ones.

(and heh, let's just be thankful it was the late 90s rather than the early 90s, huh?)

speaking of which ...

This list and the reasns were pretty amusing. Although I disagree with some of the choices.
