    hey all again

    got some wicked photos – lots of monkeys, flowers, scenery and even a few elephants..
    will try to upload some when I sort through them.

    I also got a few cookery lessons from a wonderful family I met there and I’ve been up to my eyeballs in pineapple chutney, coconut sambol and garlic curry since I got back (I’ve not got them locked…[Read more]

    Harlem – Bill Withers – live in Carnegie Hall (67 I think?)
    its just excellent

    I like to sing at the top of my lungs – so anything by Nina Simone but especially “I wish I knew how it would feel to be free”, and “feeling good”

    my cousin – an old Fantazia cheesy rave head who has definately lost a few too many braincells over the years – missed his ride back after caning the mumbles mile and taking far too many e’s, so him and a mate nicked a row boat and paddled all the way to Port Talbot.

    There was perhaps initially something different rave culture, people were a bit friendlier etc but it wasn’t long (only a few months TBH) before the problems started, people falling out with one another, blagging money and being deadbeats, the usual stuff.

    thats how fragile the links can be and although one particular area of the UK was mentioned here I’ve seen similar situations in other areas..

  • PLUR for me embodies most closely what the scene should be about – not so much as an external philosophy even, just as a means of promoting a positive attitude within the scene if nothing else – an attitude among ravers even if this doesn’t extend to the rest of society.

    I’ve suffered from paranoia and depression many times in my life – seems to be a kind of circular thing that spirals back in on you when you’re not expecting it.

    I think the advice you’ve been given is good though – lay off the drugs (not easy when you’re feeling low cos you mostly just want to forget everything), but they’re obviously not…[Read more]

    get well guys and rest up – sleep is key!
    eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables – oh and my grampa would insist on a honey, lemon and whiskey (heavy on the whiskey) hot drink to wash it all down – if nothing else it might knock you out so at least you won’t be aware of how shit you feel
