#1 Awaking:
Six hours and fourty-five minutes past the dingy morning of March’s ninth consecutive day, my Nokia’s livid alarm went off in room number three hundred and four of Hiatt Baker’s B block of the University of Bristol.

In a period of overture before the cacophony of Tallest Man on Earth gig came a jaunt south on the Eurostar. Beasting our way through southern England, we found ourselves in the bar.

24 heures à Bruxelles - @dododan

With charisma slightly greater than that of a damp rag, Tuesday will see us set sail under the channel en route to the Capital of Belgium, Brussels. Armed with several guitars, tickets to a gig and having booked an all night session in a recording studio, the 24 hours that’ll commence from noon Tuesday might get interesting.

Avec un charisme presque meilleur que celui d’un tapis mouillé, nous nous rendrons mardi dans la capitale belge, Bruxelles. Armés de plusieurs guitares, billets pour un concert et surtout une session nocturne dans un studio de radio, les 24 heures a partir de mardi midi pourraient devenir interéssantes. Venez a pour une transmission en direct de notre histoire. Spotify playlist: Dododan080310 Spotify playlist: Dododan010310

Competing in the inaugural race of this years swim meet were Gordon Brown, The Observer, Journalists at large, the wider media, social tea party goers and an apparently innocent bystander with a floppy tongue. Read the rest of this entry »
