i’ll be at queer zine fest london this sunday with the distro and my zines and stuff.
i thought i’d better make this blog post now cos knowing me i will not manage a proper one to mention this is before sunday. tra la la. i’ve got one about shit i’ve been up to lately in my drafts but nah. i’m busy today (carl’s dad’s birthday – REST IN POWER) and i’m working tomorrow and i still have shrinkie dinks to finish for sunday. sometimes i wonder if i should give up pretending i still actually blog. though i’ve been working on issue #20 which so far is about quitting my job and being a fattt bitch so that’s an excuse of sorts? i might do a pre-order for it at the zine fest if anyone is actually interested.
ANYWAY. GOOD ZINE TIMES. SEE YOU SUNDAY???
halloween is my favourite time of year, but i do always seem to kinda fail at taking the most out of it. either i break an arm 2 weeks before, or i’m too broke and there’s nowt to do in medway anyway, or everything just falls through. this year sean bean death scene were supposed to play at beacon court on halloween night but we couldn’t in the end cos suze was stuck at work until late. poop. i ended up not going at all cos im broke, was lazy and had work on friday. so instead i stayed home with carl drinking whiskey and eating too many sweeties and we watched the shining. which we were actually supposed to do last year but it was a school night and by the time we were ready to turn the dvd on it was too late in the night… carl’s well jell of little danny torrance’s jumper collection. and friday we went to his mama’s cos it was the birthday of his little brother’s girlfriend. so chilli & jacket potatoes + cake cake cake, instead of going out to a bar with karaoke (which i had been kinda planning, but i had no one to go with anyway so..)
but luckily death beans also had a gig on saturday, in canterbury. so halloween wasn’t a total bust. and i dressed up, cos i had been planning this ruddy costume for about three months. no one else did, but whatever. i judged them.
i was marceline the vampire queen from adventure time. im a little disappointed in myself to be 100% honest, but i ran out of time and getting my face evenly pale blue is surprisingly hard. maybe next time i should go as violet beauregarde? i don’t know.

i didn’t take any pictures of frau pouch mostly cos i have 1287493 pictures of them from before, ok? they actually joined the line up as a last minute to replacement to another band who had a bust up with their bassplayer or something the day before. funnily enough i got a fb message from rachel of shopping in the morning asking if they could borrow my bass, cos they’d left theirs in glasgow. i almost snorted out coffee on to the keyboard at work reading it. but it did make me kinda worry, that’s a whole lotta bass related woes for one gig. WHO’S NEXT? me? ollie pouch? i popped into the shop ollie works in after i finished to ask him if shopping could borrow his bass cos my wee betsy is weird and awkward. it’s like we’re the drummers from spinal tap. dropping like flies..
abi took a picture of family outing for me while i went on a drunken hunt for more wine. and came back with 4 avocadoes, an egg & red onion sandwich and alcohol free wine (not on purpose. oops. it was quite tasty though..)
shopping were awesome. me & suze did a little dance and may have heckled (lovingly) through out the whole set. (that’s what i do when i love you.) i cannae wait to see them again on new years eve at the girl germs NYE party. unless of course im stuck djing in the other room (hope not cos i wanna see ALL THE BANDS!)
here’s some silly pictures from their set ♥ ♥ ♥ (inc after the cut)
