Flag of United States  ,
Friday, August 27, 2004

Not really been up to much travelling or anything, but for a few updates that have been happening in my world, you have come to the right place. I have realised that USA was never really high on my list of places to see before I go, but I only came here to visit certain people. The REAL traveling starts when I leave.

Ellis was off with Salmonella poisoning for 8 days, after eating some dodgy fish dish somewhere. I have heard a million and one stories of his explosive botty and now I can't take no more. I have had food poisoning before (I was in hospital for it) and am always getting stomach bugs, stomach cramp etc etc. I have been there. Its hell. Grin and bear it. I have India to come...

I have been trying my hand at busking after a good night out in OB. I went out to Pacific Beach with Ellis's mate John, cause he was determined that I should see what it was like in the evening. As I guessed, it was like everywhere that I don't like. Overdressed, stuck up, arrogant men and woman that think they are 'IT', clubbing to music I can't stand. However, in the midst of this hell........ was me........ and my guitar, walking along the street......grinning....... singing songs (at great volume and probably out of tune) to all the woman that were passing by. I did get $3 tip, but the was like "take it, now off, before my boyfriend comes along and tans your hide" She didn't win my affection, funny enough, but some homeless dude got my 3 bucks. His toothless grin made me chuckle. Heres a song example:
"I can see a , shes got brown hair, shes walking towards me and she doesn't care......cause she walked straight past and gave me a dirty look, so i'd better shut up before she calls the cops"
Oh well. I spent the night chuckling. Ellis and John think I've tapped a winner. I don't care. I admit it. I am not a trendy and cannot be someone I'm not. I'm a scruffy rocker through and through. Bring on the metal!!! Also did some busking on the beach and had loads of random people coming up and asking me to play songs for them, to jam with me (lots of beetles, eagles and other old stuff), to hang out and finally with woman hanging around listening, my english accent is getting the attention it deserves. Damn, I love my guitar. Its better than any chat up line ever.

Also another film has been filmed in Ocean Beach, my second since I have been here. Not sure what is is this time, but they had this massive light suspended from a crane with a filter on it. Never seen a yellow street before. Series is called Veronica Mars. Sounds paff.

Been having problems with doing financial stuff online. I have too many pin numbers and memorable dates to recollect. If I get anything wrong, I get locked out and a new number gets mailed 3000 miles away. If I need to rectify things, I have to keep calling the UK, which is also very annoying, due to the time zones

Am also in the process of printing some artwork of mine onto a t-shirt or two. But am waiting for internet banking to be resolved. And I am going to record an accoustic cd of some songs I have written here. Some are a few Mothers For Angels tracks, some are a few comedy songs and the rest are just other random things I have written. Once both things are done, I will let you all know and you can send me praise (or cash). If poss, I might see if I can upload snippits onto this webpage. But the cash wold be cool.

All for now.
