"girls, rub on your titties"


i just changed the song on my myspace profile. i am planning to leave the new song on there for somewhere between 24 and 48hrs; until i stop being amused by having on my profile, i guess. i am thinking about making a 'bird room promo video' using this song in the back ground, maybe, too. i don't know. about a week ago i kept thinking about the part at the start for some reason, as we were doing the last No Point in Not Being Friends night, in the breaks, i kept saying, "Simon says get the fuck up" to people for some reason.

the night went really well, by the way. i didn't take any photos or video or anything, but there was lots of good stuff and people came and listened and seemed to have a nice time.

we have the December and January nights booked, too. December is on the 23rd (Christmas Eve Eve), and there's going to be a 'surprise present' for people that come to that one.

January is booked for Tuesday, the 27th. (from Jan onwards, the nights will always be on the last Tuesday of the month.) we have some good people confirmed for January: it's going to also double as the 'Bird Room launch party', kind of, and Steven Hall, Richard Milward and M.J. Hyland are already confirmed to read. more 'TBA'.

there is something written about the Crossing Border festival on this website now. i get a mention, and there's a photo of me reading, too. there is also another photo (by the same photographer) of one of my red socks here. i don't know why i am so proud of these socks, why i keep mentioning them on here, and displaying them for photos, etc. i feel like i am going to be known as the 'red sock guy' now. they were expensive. i don't think i can buy any more of them. they will only come round in the 'sock cycle' like once every week and a half, do not expect red socks if you meet me ever.

also, The Bird Room now has that 'search inside' function thing on UK amazon. they have missed out the epigraph and the picture of a bird, though.
