Sibonetic and the Plumstead Asian Mela.
I popped down to Plumstead Common this afternoon to meet Simon, top bloke, Plumstead Common resident, and writer of the excellent Sibonetic blog. He was running the Plumstead Common Environment Group stall at the Plumstead Asian Mela - the weather was rainy and blustery, and unfortunately this had the effect of keeping much of the crowd away. You can see further photos of the event on my Flickr account here.
One thing I gladly did not see today was something that has really prompted my ire recently is the number of blokes that are wearing culotte style three quarter length cargo trousers. They look just plain WRONG. It seems that the misguided wearers think they are being trendy and cool, when in fact they just look like fashion disaster twonks. BUY THE RIGHT SIZED TROUSERS! They look like they shrank in the wash length but not width ways. Who wants to see your hairy calves - don't flatter yourselves!
I am off to see Genesis at Twickenham in a couple of weeks. I am in two minds about this tour; there are a number of excellent tribute bands that play the old Gabriel era stuff as well if not better than the real band; I am also concerned that Genesis have abandoned their analogue keyboard sound for a cleaner but thinner digital alternative - watch the recent version of Los Endos below - where are the massive bass pedal sounds and huge Mellotron Choirs? This track should sound like the world ending - and on this evidence, the end of the world has been cancelled.
