The guy lied to me at Teahouse on Prince. He said I just needed the green one to finish and my English Breakfast was strong enough. Plurrr.... had stronger teas in a greasy spoon on the back streets if Kings Cross at 4am at night.

Thur 25th Aug: Rob Dickinson Sings

G92083eydv11Saw a cheeky show down at Joe's Pub: Catherine Wheel frontman is about to release a new album and I have to admit, he's got some corker songs.

Joe's was a superb venue for the accoustic set - watch out for the record released in September. The only song I think is a little twee is one where he talks to someone called 'Love'. No matter - Oceans is a stormer.

Sumo Tube

Sumoact1_1Tonight I am going to Europe on holiday and I will have to bring an extra suitcase. The reason being is that I have to pack my Sumo Tube(!!!) - a crazy inflatable coat that will let me splash around the Med behind any powered water craft or in the froth of any wave. Watch the video.

Summer holiday - here we come!!

Playing House, Being Grown Up

006074163501a2r2ritdjnw1q6_sclzzzzzzz_11Something for the ladies: Part time PSFK contributor and full time journo Celeste Perron has just released her first book, "Playing House: A Starter Guide To Being A Grown Up". It's a self help book with a cool difference for young women in their twenties.

Advice includes 'how to pick wine with confidence and mix cocktails that hit the spot' and 'making food that tastes delicious'. My suggestion is that if you're a chap and you see a young lady reading this book: marry her!!
