Blog: The reason James Brown says "OW!"
After that, however, I began to suspect that maybe I should go home - the main indicator being falling down a very small flight of steps and ending up sliding across the floor on my knees. I thought I had managed to save my DIGNITY by going "Ta-da!" at the end and, LIKE JAMES BROWN, staying down there for applause. Unfortunately a) i wasn't getting up because I was a bit STUCK and b) I probably looked more like Peter Kay.
THUS I took the wise option and headed HOME for curry and for BED. While this meant I missed some bands it DID mean I was fresh and SPRY come Sunday when I met with Mr S Hewitt at The Salmon & Compass, where we were due to host the QUIZ. I'd spent the morning working out some Belle & Sebastian songs on UKELELE for my round, Steve had brought one of his own, and between us and Mr J Jervis, Mr B Clancy and various others we managed to bash together a fairly respectable quiz, I think.
It all seemed to go down pretty well anyway, and I THOROUGHLY enjoyed doing my Belle & Sebastian songs, with added WHISTLING, as follows:
It was all very lovely but once again I decided to follow THE PATH OF SENSE and headed home not long afterwards, FAREWELLING this time with rather more SOBRIETY than on the Saturday. To be honest I think I should have spent a bit LESS time sitting around in the pub on Saturday and a bit MORE watching actual bands, but HEY! I had a GRATE time doing it, so i think I shall chalk it up to experience. I just wish my KNEES would stop hurting. OW!
