Status update? Only slightly tired
Well, fun yesterday with the modfather himself. Paul Weller has a definite aura of stardom about him. This is obviously due to his catalogue of hits over 4 decades, his air of 'cool' and the critical response to his current work. But part of it I think is because he is not an easy interview! Yesterday was one of his easier more laid-back chats I thought; his middle age has relaxed him and made him more at ease with himself. Maybe it's being off the booze and fags, or being a dad again at 54 but he looked great and the harmonies on both songs were top-notch. Wish we could put it all on the podcast but we can't so it's iplayer for you if you missed it.
Today I'm off to see Prometheus, the new Ridley Scott movie. For the generation that grew up with Alien, this is an exciting film to anticipate. I shall don the 3d glasses with relish...
Today we Mosh for her Majesty at 6! A Jubilee special, by royal appointment etc. Your red white and blue spandex will be required.
And oldies today please for FACEBOOK. You can do Facebook - the global monster that dominates the social life of billions (and check out our beetle pictures on the Drivetime Facebook page if you are one of them). Or Facebook- the hugely successful stock flotation followed swiftly by Facebook - one of the most calamitous stock flotations ever. Or just Facebook period. Your call!
Have an inherently cheerful and optimistic Wednesday, see you at 5
