My blogging this year has been sporadic, but its not gone away totally and I wouldn't be a proppaah blogger if I didn't do one of these posts. God, I love a good list me.
And you know what, 2010 was pretty pretty good for me. Went to some festivals, Tony Hadley bought me a pint (gold) and I accidentally moved to north London.
I managed to make one of my new year resolutions from 2009 (finally going to Japan) but the great Burt Bacharach meeting is still elusive (hang on Burt, this year I'm coming for you).
Enough of that, let's have some lists...

* There is a footnote to this list in that in fact my absolute favourite song of the year, by a country mile, isn't on this list. It's still under lock n key, biding it's time for place atop of many such lists this time next year.

When work takes over your life and you can't find the time for the things you really love (e.g bloggin about nonsense and music), it is very sad. I'm going make a new years resolution two months early and try to post on here more often.

Chilly Gonzales' debut film, Ivory Tower, written and staring himself is nearly upon us.
There's a single out on Boysnoize Records next week called I Am Europe.
The video is a bit of a trailler for said movie. This is it.
I think I just threw up with excitement.
Wanna read more about Gonzo and Lost In Paris' ongoing romance? Yeah you do.
