    Regarding the Macerena:

    When that song was first getting to be super big, one of the teachers at my elementary school would play it at recess, and all of us would go to the place where we could hear it, and just dance that stupid dance. All of the children in grades 1 through 3, putting our arms out and turning in unison.

    It started with school uniforms and divorcing parents. Everything seemed quite shit. Then, while staying with relatives in Australia, I heard "Teen Spirit" on the radio. By the time I got back to England, everything was changing. The Senseless Things, Therapy?, Nirvana, the Pumpkins, Alice in Chains. I remember picking up a "Seattle Sound" edition of Metal Hammer and spending a week as the coolest kid in school for knowing who Monster Magnet were. Short sleeved t-shirts over long-sleeved t-shirts. Electronic music was just something that morons in puffer jackets listened to. Or so we thought. Liberal spoonfuls of The Orb and LSD changed all that, and many long nights were spent in bedrooms, illuminated by red and blue light bulbs. Girls, girrrls, sex and betrayal. Reading Festival was good. In fact, most festivals were still good, yet to change into the moneyfarms they've become (yes Glastonbury, I'm looking at you!) There was a long period when wherever I went, i took my Playstation with me in a rucksack. Waking up on couches, sleeping on beaches, being fired from terrible jobs for attempting to drive coworkers insane. The second half of the decade seemed to lack vibrancy for me, watching the inexorable rise of nu-metal with horror and disgust, only to be eventually lured in. The countdown to the Millenium seemed to take about 4 years, and wham, just like that, we were all adults, just as lost and untethered as before.

    I miss the days when I didn't carry a telephone.

    I consider 1994 to be the point The UK stopped being a liberal or even friendly place to live..because of the The Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 - also known as the repetitive beats law. Fuck the tories into a thousand hells for that single law.

    Don't try and jump the queue... there are innumerable reasons to do that to the Tories. Although I guess that could be the specimen charge...
