London: the hottest day in May for 50 years, and we are suddenly sweltering in Mediterranean heat.

This is from yesterday evening – Holloway Road evening sky beckoning the summer.

I went to the London preview of the excellent Sonar last night at Fabric, and saw/listened to Durutti Column, Hot Chips and Jamie Liddell. I couldn’t stop laughing, for some strange reason. Amazing what detoxing does (eventually) for your mood.

I wrote a long post earlier today, a real-life story, adolescent memories with explicit sexual references. I decided not to publish it, a first for Blog of Funk. Not because I have suddenly become shy, but simply because there are things afoot which shall make feet more than mere 12 inches. Which is all I am saying right now!

    wow. we almost never get skies like that in the city. or maybe there are too many skyscrapers up there for me to notice any more sky.

    and about that post, i suddenly feel like i’m short on a secret.

    Beautiful picture and I love your cliffhanger ending. Do we have to wait until September to read it like they do on television?

    Every time I come by here I want to be in London, but I don’t want to go to Chelsea.

    Yes, we experienced that awesome wheather here in Holland too. It was quite a pity, I had to work that day, but oh, well, I hope your sky makes a quick circle around the planet and returns again!
