A Big Star leaves this universe

Alex Chilton dies. Very sad - he had a beautiful voice.

Gonna listen to this on the bus home.

Thirteen point one miles

Just entered the Plymouth Half Marathon with my buddies Richard and Chipbit.

Once The Plymouth Herald told me it was full - the fools - I presumed it'd be safe to stick my head above the runner's parapet, give them my details; sign up to the newsletter; and register my ageing loins safe in the knowledge the thing was chock-a-ruddy-block.


So there I'll go. I can do about 5 english miles but then I invariably make like a 1960's t-shirt and die. The remaining seven and a bit look harder.

I can't say I'm too disappointed - it should be a fun day. And only a big family birthday last year stopped me then (though I would probably have engineered some other elaborate excuse.)
