Nice to see a few different names up there this year. Unfortunately not many of them are very appealing. Bill Bailey will be good but packed. Phil Jupitus is shite.

On my drive in to work this morning got stuck behind a yaris (2nd least favourite car to be stuck behind after a micra) on a windy bit of back road, took a minute to realise that the reason the dopey cow was going so slow was that she was using various make up brushes to apply her make up and craning up to get a look at herself in the rear view mirror.

As if that wasn't bad enough she then started to take her glasses off if there was no oncoming cars so she could do a better job on the make up.

Gonna get all Kevin Myers here for a second...

Personal bug bear of mine is when you're in traffic, and in the car ahead of you, you can't see the eyes of the person driving in their own rearview mirror because, instead of being positioned like it should be, its skewed off at some crazy fucking angle, and you realise that they only use the fucking thing so they can see themselves in it, to do their makeup.

On the upside, when things are bumper to bumper and you're looking to swap into the faster moving lanes, you can count on them to sit there and not move with the traffic, and leave a gap for you to jump into.

But yeah, women!

A friend gave me a record player they didn't want recently, which is great. One of the new breed, brand new but vintage design. Needed a new needle, which I just got so looking forward to going through a load of old records I haven't touched in years this evening.

Also, needle was €5 on Amazon, compared to €25 in that DJ shop on Capel St.

Not going this year, speaking of Electric Arena. For the first time ever, since day 1. Will be weird, but have absolutely no interest. It's been dwindling the past few years; last year was completely on autopilot. So sitting it out.

Went to OZORA the past week. Amazing festival. Just what i needed.
Also quite hard, like Nowhere, but for different reasons.
Next time a better camping spot is required. Pro tip: The chill out stage is not a chill out sleeping spot.
Go there.
