Writing about web page

Ok – partisan blog alert!

Ahhhhhh feck it, who cares?! It's Vapour this weekend, and I feel the need to shout about it!

For those of you that don't know, Vapour is the Union's bi-termly house extravaganza. NB - House is NOT 'dance'. There is no cheesy trance music. There is no 'doof doof doof' at about 140 beats per minute. There is just lovely dirty grubby electro funky house - think Soulwax from last week....but with TEETH :o)

…..AAAAnyway – this Saturday marks Vapour's very 1st Birthday – aaawwww.

In true Vapour style, we've managed to wangle some pretty special guests to come and blow out the candles in the shape of Messrs. Layo and Bushwacka. Remember the name from somewhere? Think Love Story, and you won't go far wrong! Producers extraordinaire, they're also awesome behind the decks, so expect quite a set.

And, as ever, our guests are ably supported by my good self, as well as new Vapour boys James Murden and Dan Maggs, with Si taking over in the back room as the new chill out DJ. I don't know what they've got planned, but I've got more records than I can handle for my set – and if you're a fan of Franz Ferdinand, have I got something for you!

And finally, to top things off, the Vapour dancers will be in the house to make sure that once you hit the dancefloor, you'll stay there. And there may even be cake at midnight, you never know!

Vapour – it thumps. Don't believe me?

Or just come along and find out for yourself! Personally I can't wait – if only to see whether Layo and Bushwacka end up doing a Tim Deluxe – he enjoyed himself so much at the last Vapour, that we had to pull the plug on him in the end…literally…

Students' Union forums – Top B requests

Just a really quick blog to remind everyone that The Students' Union forums actually exist!!

It's really bizarre. Last year the forums were pretty damned busy every week – this year I don't think I've seen more than 4 posts (and two of them were mine!).

If you don't know how to get onto the Union forums, it's really easy. Just log into the portal using your username/password (if you haven't registered these yet, just hit 'register my account'), and then press forums. There are forums for most of the sports clubs and societies, as well as a whole set of forums devoted to Ents – you can tell the Union what you really think about Crash, Pressure etc etc.

Most importantly of all – you can find the Top Banana forum here as well. You can see old playlists, moan about your record not being played, and then request it all over again - get involved!!
