Bound and determined to finally take some selfies with Kris while I stayed over - I didn't say GOOD selfies because we still haven't figured that bit out yet - I am late on thanking him for drawing the short straw and thus having to put up with me for the longest amount of time during my trip. He did manage to get me to one WWII museum along with two pretty good shows AND a bonus performance at The Joiners, too damn much walking in Southampton, London and Portsmouth, fine dining at foreign versions of Taco Bell and McDonald's; bulk dining at Cosmo, what can best be described as the UK version of a Golden Corral (under great protest as he has a strict moral code usually preventing buffet attendance), letting me drag him to record store after record store where he would inevitably buy a record or two despite not currently owning a working turntable, always letting me look down every aisle in the Sainsbury's or Lidl or Iceland or whatever, and on and on. He once again!
introduced me to many sexy mf'ers, all of whom were very accepting of me right off the bat - I COULD take partial credit for that, but this isn't that kind of post. Most importantly, he and his two flatmates greeted me with open arms and an open flat and were very forgiving when I occasionally failed to keep it as quiet as I should have. Having a full jar of Nescafé crystals for me upon arrival was the most brilliant move I've ever experienced from a "tea only" guy and I was so continually grateful every morning I was able to enjoy a cup. Proud of us for managing to stay awake for most of three NASCAR Cup races together and several NHL and NBA Playoff games separately. I know there's more to say and it'll all leak out eventually - or it'll wait until the next time he's back here (probably sooner than we think). Thanks again to my Bri-ish bro-her - I love you - see you in a few shakes.

As just tweeted out by the DVDVR account about 45 minutes ago, beloved icon DEAN~! (Dean Rasmussen) has passed away. He was just 57. Probably the last decent guy to get his head above the swirling vortex of a hellhole that was before we all had to give up on Usenet and embrace the World Wide Web; at times, the only guy to even hint at still having fun watching. He wrote like nobody it wasn't too long until everybody else tried to write like he did. He was always very nice and supportive to almost everybody online - he would even encourage me to design more DVDVR covers while my sense of graphic design was largely nonexistent. I really wanted to find an old photo or video of him performing with his band while wearing a lucha mask, but this was where I landed. He leaves behind a beautiful family who will need your help - gofundme link below. Rest in Peace, DEAN~!

Spotify is killing off Heardle for good tomorrow. I'm pretty sure I lost a good chunk of stats once they'd taken it over but this is probably an accurate reflection of how well I generally do with these - I either get it in superhuman time or not at all. Turns out that yes I'm terribly bad about identifying music after (a certain year) despite pretending to pay attention to the current stuff as a voice on the radio...

Anyway, last chance to look at your stats - it's gone on the 5th! Show me yours IF YOU DARE

I'm back on American soil! I meant to tell you last night but it appears I closed my eyes and it's now 13 hours later. :) I have a rather nasty sinus infection either from the plane or made worse by it (photo of my thick yellow snot NOT attached) but expect that to pass after I drink all the water. I have many photos to show you later! I don't wanna get all Kris Head about things but I WILL note that in every one of my dreams last night... I was still over there.
