[ mood | wet ]

At Roskilde festival. Raining constantly. Swampland. I can't contact anyone i want to meet as my phone ain't recognising the numbers. Haven't seen any bands yet. Kind of want togo home, this is turning into something of an endurance test. This is my only holiday time in summer. And i soon as i get back i have to go to work! At least i haven't lost my wallet, like the girl i met when i got here. Want to see the beastie boys and talib kweli, but i have no idea when they're playing. I'll be happy if it doesn't rain for almost a whole day. All in all, a bit of a fucking nightmare. Probably my last festival :P Chance of hypothermia = 1 in 3.

I want to buy some weed, but it's probably too fucking wet to even skin up. The danish people are super-nice though!

[ mood | tired ]

on wednesday morning when it snowed, someone set a fire alarm off in our halls around 5am (by throwing a snowball at it), pissing off a lot of people. some huge drunk guy (i think he might have been the one who threw the snowball) kicked off at security, three of them were too petrified to actually do anything. freddy and jack were yelling 'fight the power!' in the background :) Some of the more hardcore among us stayed in the courtyard until sunrise, it was lovely. we even got to pelt (nicer members of) security with snowballs!

freddy proudly showing off his window-covering skills. we thought it would be hilarious if harry awoke to find his window completely covered in snow, thus leading him to the conclusion that he'd been snowed in! unfortunately the sound of snow being applied was pretty loud and he came out before we finished :P

i will be so goddamn happy if it gets to like knee-height.

rinsing my current essay, there was a lot of shit i never got to touch upon in my other Midsummer Night's Dream essay, this time i just have to do an 'analytical review' which means i can pretty much whatever i find interesting :)

it was jack's birthday last night. funfun, many hours spent puking.

started painted again for the first time in a while. will post a photo when i finish the shading.

the wonders of prohibition. twats [15 Dec 2006|12:48pm]
[ mood | infuriated ]

Due to the vast amounts of crackdowns and raids on small-time cannabis growers and dealers of late, an increasingly common problem of shit weed being sold with sand/talcum powder/chemical nastiness (to increase the weight) is arising. It seems that over the whole of the UK it's becoming nigh-on impossible to get decent stuff. yay for the war on freedom.

Thank you government, for spending our money on fucking over millions of people in this country, arresting people who have done nothing wrong, having a serious detrimental effect on weed smokers' health, and putting the unregulated cannabis trade in the hands of criminals who only give a shit about money. This may actually be what they had planned....it will certainly force a lot of people to give it up if ALL weed becomes disgustingly contaminated. This has got me pretty riled.
If this doesn't show any signs of clearing up next year, there are probably going to be a LOT of pissed off stoners ready to take some form of action. could be interesting. i'll certainly be ready to gouge mr. blair's eyes out if i haven't had a nice spliff for a few months.


presentation went ok.

almost sorted my creative writing presentation. i think i might have a couple of shots of vodka in my coffee before i go in to get nerve up. one spliff left for afterwards, i'm gonna need it.

edit: and now it is looking damn fine! i have to get up in less than four hours to present it though :( once it's over i can stop thinking about the impending list of tasks ahead of me.

last night wiggs was making funky sculptures out of blue polythene stuff with a cheese-grater type thing for his design project. i decided to have a go and made something suitably trippy:

today i have been - playing guitar and drinking out of coke-can ashtray.

[ mood | exhausted ]

last couple of weeks have been good. getting to know a lot of people well, went to coin operated in hackney after lots of chaos, we missed the last train and had to get a cab at two am. it was nigh-on impossible to find and we had to ask lots of random pedestrians if they knew the way. but it was possibly the best thing ever! amazing atmosphere. can't remember the last time i got so trashed. matt ended up with a book called 'a penknife to my heart' (someone was snorting lines off it or something) and we decided to steal it. it has the gloomiest cover ever, a murky photograph of a boat. damn fine souvenir which will forever symbolise the night. the last page was ripped off for usage as a snorting instrument.
next night awesome house party in a VAST mansion of a house right next to brunel (you walk over this field and through a muddy, pitch-black path). it kicked ass. freddy dj'd and at one point i was led into a room with a drum kit and dude freestyling. wasn't astoundingly good but i was suitably enthralled while coming up. on the way back it was ridiculously windy; we huddled together, closed our eyes and listen attentively; a few minutes of absolute serenity and calm. followed by running around a vast, open, unlit field yelling 'BBBRRAAPP!' for a while. hope there are lots more insanely phat parties.
smoking too much pot.
saw the borat film with john. amusing, but a tad disappointing. jammed, always good.
turned 20. lots of people keep on assuming i'm a few years younger, so that's ok :)
creative writing presentation on friday. trying not to think about that. portfolio going ok. gotta start english coursework. can wait a while.
started going to the gym.
feel quite frail atm, wanna stay in bed all the time. but probably shouldn't.
stayed up all thursday night helping my wiggs build a strong crane out of straws, nails, glue and thread. lots of finger pain! pined over girl in my creative writing class on friday morning twitching and disorientated.
flatmate chris' birthday on same day as me. he is extremely annoying, but this often seems to provoke me to make witty derogatory comments after he says something, something i am rarely capable of. so at least some good comes out of it. his manner of speaking reminds me of nathan barley.
started painting again in the name of procrastination. bought some decent watercolours, canvas and A3 sketch pad. done jackshit drawing in last few months. not an ideal time to compensate.
lots of freaky coincidences as usual :)
end of term in like a week and i have to go back to the midlands to make monies until like new year. trying to get most urgent work done in next couple of days so i can actually have some free time. or i'll just procrastinate until the last minute.
saw DEAN LEARNER or whatever his real name is, on the tube! i was sleep-deprived and awestruck.

what a legend. camera phone + dongle = joy.

hilarious. and a pretty darn awesome dance!


rrr, i need to finish a creative writing assignment by tomorrow morning. i got like 2/3 through it last night, and just as i was about to do the final bit, wiggs came in at about 1am asking me to proof read an essay he'd just finished. it took longer than expected.
starting reading 'the age of reason' again. so damn good. i had intended to reread it like a year ago, but my old copy fell apart and i lost like the first 30 pages. haven't been reading enough purely for enjoyment lately.
also got suikoden v, which is rather excellent. it's been a long time since i've actually felt engrossed in a video game :)

not only am i in flat 23, i also found out one of my flatmates has the exact same birthday as me! trippy shit!

[ mood | blah ]

i just remembered what i was dreaming about when i woke up at SEVEN AM this morning. or it might have been a few hours ago, i'm not quite sure:

it was night-time, and the only bit i can remember is john pointing out that the moon was really huge and low on the horizon. i turned around, and saw it was taking up like half the sky, every crater and contour was visible. really wish i could recall the main story line!

presentation this morning actually went pretty well. pulled off a surprisingly convincing german accent. most of today has been spent in bed.

recently bought 'ico'. first impressions: most overrated game ever?
