Okay, I know no one reads this besides the loverly miss k, but in any event...

I, um, 'acquired' the new Bloc Party album, Silent Alarm the other day. It is fucking rad. 'Like Eating Glass' is one of the best track one, side ones ever. They will be huge. Hugh, even. Hopefullly they will find someway to kill and then desecrate the still warm bodies of Franz Ferdinandzzzzzzz whilst becoming hugh.
I would be a really happy man if somehow Bloc Party, Spoon and the Arcade Fire became as big as radiohead circa 2000.
I'm sure I'm late to the Bloc Party praise fest, I know. But they're good.

Y Ddraig Goch ddyry gychwyn

Happy St. David's Day!
Apart from the fact that he was a teetotaler, you have to love a Saint whose major miracle was making the ground beneath him rise up to form a small hill when someone in the back of the crowd complained they couldn't see him.
So, get out yer daffodils and yer leeks and celebrate the fact that Wales is undefeated and tied with Ireland for the lead in the Six Nations.
Go Wales!
(Oh, and the title means something like: Out of the ashes comes the Red Dragon)
