Entry #26 – What I’ve Been Listening to Lately (a.k.a Oh yeah. I have a blog, don’t I?)

Hello again. Sorry I haven’t been posting much in the way of content lately. Basically April has been a curious blend of being busy and living life as close to normal as possible. The pubs are open once again and I’ve been back out with my mates twice having a good time, minus freezing ourContinue reading “Entry #26 – What I’ve Been Listening to Lately (a.k.a Oh yeah.

Entry #25 – Blur (a.k.a Fame’s a Bitch part 2.5)

Entry #22 – Stop the Clocks (a.k.a The Holy Grail of Oasis)

Well, I’m about to use that term again to describe this song I decided to listen to today. For a good ten yearsContinue reading “Entry #22 – Stop the Clocks (a.k.a The Holy Grail of Oasis)”
