Forever Drone *

That last post was pish and was written when I was pished, but I'm not going to change it cos ah cannae be bovvered!

Anyway, stayed up really really late last night to watch the legendary 40-year-old Bernard Hopkins take on the highly rated young(ish) Jermaine Taylor for the undisputed world middleweight title. Didn't last the pace, however, and took the decision to get to bed at around 3am when they announced yet another fight before the main event. Watched the replay this morning and I'm extremely glad that I didn't stay up any longer for it - what a real disappointment it was. Too much cagey boxing and not enough fighting for my liking, but I could see why Jim Watt would think it was fascinating as, at his prime, he was the epitome of boxer rather than fighter. Fuck, I do go on. Read the BBC report of the fight here, or try the round by round commentary from ESPN.

Before that, watched the Royal Tenenbaums, what a hoot and what a great soundtrack. Then, call me a saddo, but, before the boxing came on, I watched Masters Football, which is played by retired players whose beer guts are only outdone by the bald heads on show.

Interesting things happening out in blogland. Try this one for starters, which various bloggers have already made mention of. And we've no reason to doubt the claim that the author of this one is an undercover CIA operative working in Ireland - it's essential reading.

I note young Ardee has not only amended the look of her blog, but has made dramatic changes to her life also. Good luck Ardee, hope it works out well for you!

Jane has posted a music quiz, which was gnawing away at my brain on Friday as I attempted to nurse my hangover following the work's beano the day before - I'm down to only having two answers missing. Give it a go for a chance to win prizes galore!

Right, I've put off the decorating off for too long - off I go to do some domestic chores!

Have tried to watch "Royal Tenebaums" but just couldn't get round to it.

Highly recommend Rushmore though, and its soundtrack is pretty fab too.

Inspired by both your good self and by Lisa I have just downloaded the Royal Tenenbaums and the Rushmore soundtracks. I really love the Nico track.

Director Wes Anderson and actor/producer Owen Wilson must be a pair of musos, going by the soundtracks for both films - must get round to seeing Rushmore before too long.

Is the Nico track These Days, originally done by Jackson Browne and covered excellently by Paul Westerberg (he once of The Replacements)??
