NTL/Virgin/Telewest - pick up the phone!

Right, so having attempted to cancel twice, once on the phone and once again in writing, I find myself on hold for OVER AN HOUR today trying to get through to someone who can terminate my service and get them off my back for £50 I don't owe them.

NTL/Virgin/Telewest: you suck.

I will NEVER be a customer of yours EVER again. You may even have polluted the Virgin brand to the point where I'd think twice about flying with Virgin again.

Robinson Way again

Hm, now they've offered a 25% reduction in the amount "owing". Dream on.

Biomechanical, Camden Underworld

Rammed, sweaty, a total mosh.

Being sick sucks.

That's all.

What's worse is I was offline for 48 hours and no-one noticed.

Perl Storable object broken in recent OS X update

If you suddenly start getting this:

Error:  Storable object version 2.13 does not match $Storable::VERSION 2.15 at /System/Library/Perl/5.8.6/darwin-thread-multi-2level/ line 253

Do a:

cpan> force install Storable

To bring everything good again.

Naughty, naughty Apple. I hope this gets enough Google Juice to help someone :)

Richard Riley, Alsatia launch, Fopp Bath

Attended Rich's launch party for his album last night. Check it out! Amazing, lovely, wonderful stuff.

Counterfeits, Bullycats, Hitchmo, The Volt @ Invention Arts

OK, I'm now almost up to date with my gigs: Counterfeits, Medalist, Luca, Counterfeits, Bullycats, Hitchmo and The Volt.

Good haul I think even if I have only uploaded a couple from each band. Plenty more good ones in reserve should the need arise!

Pauline Taylor, Monkey Chews

OK, so I've seen a lot of bands in the last couple of years: full of enthusiasm, a modicum of talent and a few pretty little fan girls. Very occasionally though, I get to see an artist with exceptional talent in a more intimate venue. This was one of those occasions. Pauline Taylor, for anyone not already acquainted with her work, has done 90's bangin' choons with Faithless and written for Dido and the latest wunderkind Paolo Nutini.

Just. Fricking. Amazing.

Beautiful songs, on relevant subjects, beautifully executed.

Crappy indie bands take note.
