October 17, 2005
I don't know why, they just do.
It's true, I don't get time to blog anymore, though this is largely due to a lack of in-house internet than anything else.
I'm reading the Observer Music Monthly over lunch and am amused by the juxtaposition of Robbie Williams and Pete Doherty, drawn together by the Editor's letter.
"...both are extraordinary performers, witha taste for the vintage sounds of the Clash, and both are really very modern characters. Neither has ever shrunk from confrontation with the media maelstroms that they have faced – both know that at some level, you need sincerity, as well as a little luck. Certainly, both their stories make for gripping journalism."
I don't dispute the last statement, but I'll have to read on to see whether I agree that Pete Doherty and Robbie Williams are opposite, yet equal. If anyone wants to photoshop their faces together for comedy effect, please do!
Aside from that things are all go. I can't wait to go to India and have a bit of break of sleeping and generally laziness. The whole office are really busy working on the January issue, it's being a bit of a pain in the bum! We're also due to start on February.
For my part, I've been manically helping with the planning of the Sugar/Rimmel model roadshow. The first show was on Saturday in Basingstoke and was knackering for all involved! All the bands and the models were lovely, as was Jeff Brazier, our compere for all the shows. In fact Jeff was SO lovely that he spent a good two hours after the end of the show, signing autographs until everyone who wanted one had had one.
Check out the sugarmagazine website to see which bands are on at which show. You'll all be out of the 13–17 age limit, but you never know, you might have smaller siblings…
