Tin Star

I have been binge watching the excellent new series, Tin Star starring Tim Roth. Love the series and love the soundtrack each week. I tried looking to see if you could purchase the soundtrack but its not available yet. However there are plenty of sites offering track listings.

Spent an hour today buying tracks from Amazon, Ebay, ITunes and from IAMX’s own website to get hold of all the tracks.

Artists include Good Company, IAMX, The Crooked Brothers, Willis Earl Beal, Rouge Rouge, The Entrance Band, Leonard Cohen, Bert Jansch, Agnes Obel, Richard Walters, Francoise Hardy, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Nick Nolan


Sunday morning with the family

Breakfast at the Sunrise Café in Burnham followed by a trip to the Taplow Car Boot Sale:


The car boot was quite small this week and it was cold and damp but I managed to find some 80’s retro Soda Stream Bottles:


Then we went to the Moss End Garden Centre, had some lunch and visited the antiques shop there. They have two floors of goodies from the usual pottery and silver through to vintage clothing and toys and everything in between:

I bought a couple of vinyl LP’s and vintage model toy.







Pool night

After work, this afternoon, Christian and I went to Bar H for some Pool and Beer. After a challenging day at work it was nice to chill with some beer and games of Pool. The games of pool were not exactly competition standard.

The first game, Chris sank the black for me. The second game, I returned the favour. The subsequent games could have been better from both sides. It was great to have a few beers and games of pool after work no matter what the final score.

Final score 4:3 to me: Yeeaaaaaahhhhhh!!!!!


Brighton Chilli Festival

Got to Brighton seafront and parked at 8.30am. Parking was £16!

Walked into town to the Post & Telegraph for a fry up.

We went to the Lego shop to see the new Millennium Falcon. It was out of stock so we were disappointed. Will have to wait until they manufacture some more.

We went to Choccywoccydoodah and had a melted hot chocolate drink with candy straw, cream and marshmallows. Yummm!!!!

We went to the Chilli festival. Listened to some live music in the sun, drank beer and tasted lots of chilli based products.

On the way back from Brighton’s Flea market we had a quick pit stop in the Yellow Book.

We finally made it to the Cloud gallery and bought a new signed limited edition print from JJ Adams titled “The morning after”.

It’s a large framed print measuring 50″ across by 32″ tall. It features a parody of Masterss of the Universe characters including He-man, Skelator and Lion-o from Thundercats. It’s no 147/195 and every time we look at it we notice something we hadn’t seen before. It’s a fantastic adult take on an 80,s cartoon and film. It’s my new favourite piece of art and has resulted in a signed Roger Moore photo being relegated to s cupboard (but only temporarily)
