Feather in your cap

feather in your cap

Make a move with what you can
Dead waters rise higher than your mind
Disappointment is a feather in your cap
You want the truth so you can crush it in your hand

There’s no map that can tell you where you are
You’re in between things that only go half way
Your tangled brain, your tired old refrain
You’ll be singing it in your tired old asylum

You want the best, you want contests
My eyes are filled with prizes you’ve been showing
Your disappointment is a card up your sleeve
Place your bets at the door before you leave

Pier to Eternity Sea Monsters vs Hell Lizards

Pier to Eternity fancy dress bicycle party is back!

First ride of the year is themed Sea Monsters vs Hell Lizards. After terrorising the pier, the group descended upon Hastings Old Town and ending up in Bottle Alley for ice cream courtesy of William the Conequeror. The new crowdfunded sound system is booming. You can bring your own bike radio and tune in for your own handlebar tunes too.

Down by the Seaside

Down by the seaside, see the boats go sailin’
A-can the people hear, oh, what the little fish are sayin’?
Ah, ah-ah-ah-ah
Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Oh, oh, people turned away, oh, the people turned away

Down in the city streets, see all the folk go racin’, racin’
No time left, no, no, to pass the time of day in
Ah, ah-ah-ah-ah
Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Yay, yay, yeah, aw, the people turned away, people turned away, so far away, so far away

See how they run, see how they run
See how they run, see how they run
Run run run, run run run, run run run

Do you still do the twist?
Do you find that you remember things that well?
I wanna tell you, some go twistin’ every day
Though sometimes it’s awful hard to tell
Ah-hah, ah-hah, ah-hah, oh

Out in the country, hear the people singin’
Singin’ ’bout the growin’, knowin’ where they’re goin’, yeah, yeah, they know, yeah, they know
Ah, ah-ah-ah-ah
Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, people turned away, yeah, the people turned away

Sing loud for the sunshine
Pray hard for the rain
And show your love for Lady Nature
And she will come back again
Yes she will, yes, she will

Ah, ah-ah-ah-ah
Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Oh, oh, oh, people turned away, the people turned away
Don’t they know that they’re goin’

–Led Zeppelin

Where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride

Fila

Megan

Full Fila in FX @ Brighton Station

Megan stepped onto the train with her kids and family, totally rocking the Fila look. I’ve seen people try and fail at the 80s/90s throwback, but this is a pure 1987 look without even trying. It also looks so completely modern, but then, in 1987, these clothes looked like they were from the future…

You can’t see the Bank Holiday train chaos for some reason, but behind me is insanity with buckets and spades.

Thanks for the picture!

Electric Crazyland

Tiff McGinnis Grand Dame Electric Crazyland

Tiff McGinnis opens her Grande Dame show, Electric Crazyland at the St Leonards’s bar tonight. Check the links for her artwork, I’m not going to describe it, go see for yourself, it’s really great.

She speaks in a low Georgia drawl, with a purr like an idling V8, and tells me an abbreviated version of how she arrived in the UK, via New York, San Francisco and doing a gig with Jane Birkin in Europe.

Never, ever leave the house without your camera. How many times have I told myself this? Anyway, got this, shot on iPhone.

I love these iMessage stickers from the show:
