Anyone up for seeing The Offspring at Shepherd's Bush O2 ? I'm getting tickets the day I decide to take up a job.
I donno who's up for it, but I really wanna go to their concert, I haven't been to a stage performance like this before, but I'd fucking love it. Do you get seats and galaxy minstrals and a brochure? Do you think they'd be t-shirts and stuff too? I really wanna go.

I just want to post to say YAY ME! Just went through the scary panel of doom with document of enormousness - they kept saying document was very good which made me proper chuffed. Next stop, panel of ULTIMATE doom

Hay hay, I remember when the last album came out me and you were gazin' 'bout goin' to see them.
The only gig, as in, not a play or something like that, that I've been too, is a mate's mate's band when I was 18, and we left when they finished their couple of songs. Never been to a real one though.

I like that there are many inner sanctums and cliques of LARP'ing involving the verious degrees of seriousness and subject. I imagine there is big in-fighting between the Steampunk, mythical-creatures-currently-existing (LOTR) and mythical-creatures-are-all-gone (GOT) lot.

You know when you take an 'E' tablet how they talk about being able to feel the up'n'downs of the baseline in the club.
I wonder what it would be like to take an 'e', then sit on a speaker and have someone go down on you where they move at exactly the right time.

Anyone can cook, I have no doubt of that. But a lot of people are scared of cooking a bad meal... personally, if I have to bin it and eat cerial instead, then I don't mind.
But its not really about the cooking for substance thing, although it is that a lot, its more about being able to treat yourself and create something you can enjoy and share. Some nights I just want something solid inside me, other nights I want something I can thoroughly enjoy. Sometimes I'm hulishing* for something and if I don't have it that week, I'll always be thinking about it, and be really disapointed if I can't have it.
