Lightspeed Champion

New vice -- Burgers.
Briefly overtaking learning and performing Magic Tricks, the brief vegetarianism of last year is a thing of the past, the binge eating section was fun, but too many packs of skittles left me with inability to sweat, Pizza? I still love you, I appreciate you being there for me, see you when i'm back home in BK. I hadn't eaten beef for what must have been for ten years, no real reason.. just always preferred chicken I guess. L.A has opened my eyes, I think i've had a different burger every day..


The perils of forbidden interaction. Lead you into pits of unwanted despair (Apples and Despairs?).. Ariel has been on hand to yank me out of it. When he's spotted me slipping.
One of these moments ensued a trip to the comic store to pick up the latest Gilbert Hernandez graphic novel "High Soft Lisp". I highly recommend it!
Yet more takes of the insatiable "Fritz" from Love and Rockets.
Incredible as always.. but my god. I don't know if i've been forced in to square-dom. But some of the acts in the book made me blush, i was reading it outside whilst waiting for my follow up doctors appointment and got paranoid every two seconds looking around me, that for some reason i imagined every single person walking by had some sort of x-ray vision AND the ability to read backwards...

Ariel's girlfriend lent me her copy of Twilight Saga : Eclipse to read. The thing is.. I really want to see the movie, i feel if I read the book, the chances of that happening are very VERY slim.. unless on a plane, it'll be that kind of movie, although.. directed by David Slade? 30 Days Of Night!

Pondering sentiments.

Musically speaking I really enjoy the latest album "Life Is Sweet! Nice To Meet You".. I put a lot of work into it and Spacecamp who helped it come to life sound incredible on the record. I'm totally proud of it. Lyrically speaking, listening to some of the songs now actually makes me sick to my stomach.
NEVER write lyrics based on where your head is at in that present moment. Because when people have to hear it a year later (and you have to perform such songs) there is no doubt that in my mind that you will not be in the same place.. and you will feel like a "sickly dick".
"Life Is Oblique! Rice And Beet Fruit'.

The night after the last blog post I went to another party.. but didn't really drink as much. As shortly after that last post, shit got "dark'.
I was feeling in a slightly better mood, as a couple hours earlier I had committed 21st century suicide i.e. deleted my Facebook account. Subsequently meaning I can no longer access the Lightspeed Champion Facebook page, ALSO meaning that i've probably just lost the attention of the last 70% of people that may have been slightly interested in me, basically meaning that only two people are probably reading this, which is essentially me, and my mother. Who I know reads this, due to worrying text messages I regularly receive based on information I haven't necessarily shared with her directly.
...at this party aware that I didn't want to drink (but in case i'm suddenly struck down with what I like to call "Levitt Syndrome" or "Case of the Carrey's" or "Notebook Madness" or "Eternal Sunshine Synopsis" or "500 Days Of Bummer" (Do you get it yet??)).. I kept a drink or two in my pocket.
A girl in front of me asked out loud but to no one in particular "Are there any more drinks?"
She turns around towards my direction, I pull out a drink and proclaim "Here's one" She responds in a valley accent.
"Erm.. do you have anything colder?"

And that my friends, is the meaning of life.

I go back to London for a bit tomorrow...If anyone happens to be there this Friday, and wants to see me sing with The Triffids at The Barbican for a special show,you should..come!
I'm sightly worried about being on my own in a period where being left on my own takes me one step closer to downloading more Fiona Apple songs... anyway.
I love The Triffids, can't quite believe I'm going to sing their songs with the actual band.

Here's a classic that will be in the set.


Here's the link to the event.

The Triffids @ The Barbican (London) 9th April.

Before the event I'll be performing a couple early Triffids songs solo, so yes. Come down.


P.s What's the difference between a lightbulb and a pregnant woman? You can't unscrew a lightbulb.

I still read Dev... and on a totally random note, I saw the trailer you posted on your movie blog, and while previously I had never even heard of this film, I must say I now feel the need to watch it (all be it mainly out a twisted curiosity).

Count me as 4! Sorry to hear about the Days of Bummer...Good luck at Heathrow this time around. And if you come back to LA and want to do an impromptu show, I will gladly show up with a bunch of people :)
