Spearhead/Disposable Heroes

The Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy created one of my favorite albums of the 90's Hypocrisy Is the Greatest Luxury. It's a really really good political industrial hip hop album that sits really well next to Consolidated and Jello Biafra.

Anyway after this brilliant album Michael Franti went off to be part of Spearhead and created Home. Slighty less political, no industrial, more r&b. Very good. The second album was Chocolate Superhigh way. Which I never really got on with.

Anyway Spearhead is now Michael Franti & Spearhead and I've just got Stay Human. On the first listen it's as good as Home. Still more r&b than hip hop. Very political. Very very good.

Expect it to turn up on Last.fm quite a lot.

This started as a boring post but became ever so slightly interesting

Well instead of waiting for something interesting to happen. I thought I would blog about a last few weeks.

Well, we, after several weekends, finished re-insulating and lay of floorboards in the loft. It took a lot longer than we thought it would, but worked out ok. Apart from Me and Ness now not being able to bend over. DIY is bad for your back.

We have been going to Tai Chi (which strictly speaking not boring) tomorrow will be our 4th or 5th week. I'm almost graceful. But of course still can't tell my left from my right.

Ness also had her eyes shot with lasers. And in fact her eyesight is now a lot better. (you know that's not boring either)

When Ness was recovering from the procedure at home in bed. I walked downstairs to find a worryingly large amount of blood on the living room floor. Eventually found Loki (who seems to be addicted to our vets) which both his front paws cuts. We think he was jumping up on to some barbed wired (no idea where around here) so down he went again. He's now had then sown up and has to wear a plastic cone to stop him from tearing out his stitches. Poor little bloke (not really boring but could still have done without it).

So far Loki has been to the vets (apart from the usual shots etc) for cystitis caused by stress (twice), being overweight, asthma, and now both paws being injured. And he's only 1 year and a few months old.

Bast (his elder [by about 20 mins] but smaller sister) has never been apart from when I was painting the garden fence and dripped some paint on her (This was completely my fault).

On a non cat related note I have officially accepted a job in Bermuda and handed in my notice at my current job. Which means we now are actually moving :)
