soccer…sorry, “football”, anyone?

This blog was originally posted to The Dresden Dolls Diary.


i am staying in london instead of going to the fringe….i just couldn’t handle anymore planes or trains.
the london gig was off the hook. life is working.
i am holed up in a hotel for a week, trying to catch up on emails and life.

1. i am listening to new music this week and starving for content.
please post here any incredible albums that you think i might not know. i’m getting in shape for the “leeds” video and downloading single albums to listen to back-to-front while i work out.
hit me. any era, any genre.

2. i am kind of bored. yesterday, i bought a soccer ball, and some charity-shop sneakers, to cheer myself up.

3. i noticed on my walk home that there is a big field (albeit its sort of gross and ridden with drunks and junkies) near my hotel.

pick-up soccer/football game, anyone? let’s fucking do it.
3 pm, shepards bush, this wednesday the 27th.
i am not kidding. we need at least 8 people to have a decent game. if we have too many people, we’ll figure it out, we can rotate being athletes and hooligans, drinking beers on the sidelines and getting into brawls.
we’ll play til about 5 or 6 and then HAVE TEA somewhere.
shepards bush is a total hole, but we’ll find a place i’m sure.
please do wear appropriate footwear.
