Thank you for that, and I did live by the river. Funny how some past shit parts get regenerated and the posh white folks move in, moving the previous occupants into the suburbs. That happens everywhere, doesn't it, China, India, London, for those fucking olympics. Paul Simenon took up painting. Not quite as good as his bass playing, but he's making more money than me no doubt, so "Respect!"
Yes, hysterical. They've also booted out the poor locals to make way for the "Olympic village". Must admit, I'm kinda hoping something goes seriously wrong with it. No loss of life obviously, just that the stadium collapes the night before it's due to start.
Are you in Seattle, the grunge town home of "Frasier"? I've seen it on the tele on varisou documentaries. Rains a lot. Bit like here. As soon as they announced a hose-pipe ban, it hasn't stopped for the last 3 months.
