burning love



right then. now we've got all that flipping haloween palaver done with ( which in my day was just mischief night - knock a door run filling your physics teacher's drive with milk bottles going and getting chips ) can we get on to the stupendously more thrilling fireworks. you know the one. bonfire night. fireworks night. guy fawkes night. treacle toffee. parkin (see our pal bltp's handy recipe). being quite insanely thrilled by a sparkler. that one yes. well it's this week and we're going penny for the guy guvnor barmy so stand well back... oh alright we'll be quietly over enthusiastic and fidget a lot but you get the idea

our lives are shaped by what we love seems appropriate somehow sung by a different hairier odyssey and off of the wobbliest record in my pile swapped for a couple of t shirts at a jon lucien show in brighton long ago. and a bonus other fabulous song off it cos it's too lovely to miss out

odyssey - our lives are shaped by what we love

odyssey - battened ships

All the warnings on shows like 'Blue Peter' and 'Magpie' about the dangers from fireworks put me off them. I was just a big scaredy cat.

Still not keen on them

Must admit I prefer bonfire night, it's probably the one thing I miss in the smoke (ironically) is bonny behind the houses on a bit of rough land next to the Club.
The displays in the park just aren't the same. Although the time in Carshalton at the Lion's club fandango when they played "your gorgeous" by Baby Bird and everyone sang along was fun.

Bloody hell, those are good tunes. Well worth a couple of t-shirts.

I always thought the rise of Halloween and the demise of Guy Fawkes was down to evil US cultural imperialism - but then I heard that the Scots had been doing something Halloween-y for yonks anyway? Is that right?
