28 days later...


so i'll be rockin' the uk next month. there's a thread on the bowlie.com to keep track of dates and such. i have this compelling urge to go visit stonehenge. perhaps i've seen spinal tap one too many times. sharon assures me we'll be hitting up HDIF on the 19th of may. so come out, we'll drink, we'll get drunk. i'm also going to edinburgh to kidnap kristin, if only for a few days. predictably, here are a couple songs about london, because london is obviously the only city in england. do i get points for not posting london calling? man, it looks like an 80s revival in here.

bananarama > hey young london
xtc > towers of london
the go-go's > london boys


oh fuck it. i'm gonna post it anyways, if only because of this story. wtf is that shit all about? it's racist bullshit, that's what it is. so here it is...

the clash > london calling

oh, and how about a bonus track for good measure...

the clash > london's burning

btw, has anyone seen 28 days later? zombies are cool.
man, i need help.

OOh, you're coming to the UK?

You'll have to let us know when you're going to be around and what you're up to. Maybe we can hook up.

Sharon and I live at opposite ends of a motorway (freeway) and Stonehenge is sort of in the middle but it's hard to get to without a car unless you book on a bus trip with a load of old ladies.

Zombies are cool. Have you seen Shaun of the Dead?

Very good and also set in London

BANANARAMA?!!!

A quick search on google suggests tours that take in Windsor/Bath/Stonehenge. It's a little pricey, but includes the day's transport and entrance fees... I'll try and find out more before you get here.

aren't bananarama one of the uk's top musical acts? or maybe it's shakespeare's sister.

Aww, J, I never got around to putting together a little London & Edinburgh touristy list while I was on 'spring break', and now I'm mad crazy overwhelmed getting ready to move in 2 weeks. How about this: as you think of questions, why don't you just send 'em over to me?

robot_hero said...

what? where are you moving to?

jennifer said...

To the Ukrainian Village, yo! Getting out of this expensive ass neighborhood and going where the hipsters go.

robot_hero said...

is that still in the city of big shoulders?

jennifer said...

Of course! I ain't no 'burb livin' girl. :D
