fc shtora

i play football on wednesday evenings for a 5-a-side team we collectively named fc shtora. we play at the catford powerleague by the train station in south east london, and after originally wincing at the number of bans for violent conduct on the club house noticeboard each week, we decided to join the wednesday night league.

we started the season badly, most teams coming across younger, fitter and collectively more skillful. however, some of these teams have been playing together for years and we are just starting out, so we told ourselves to give it time.

slowly our patience is paying off. we were getting closer and closer to getting a result, and last wednesday we finally got our first win - and an empathic one it was as we won 21-9.

the team blog is a little slow in being updated - but you can check it out as i have added it to the side panel.

Shtora is a Russian electro-optical countermeasures suite, and if you want to know more follow this wikipedia link and this link.

brush with the fuzz

stadds-passed-outstadds-passed-out ... uploaded by springett

after another great but late night out in downtown orlando, stadds decided the trip home was too far and the curb would be as a good a place as any to sleep... the ol bill even tried to rouse him, but decided they'd leave it to us to carry him, thanks for nothing !

through the window pane

i'm really into guillemots right now - made up love song 43 and trains to brazil are two 'kin excellent tracks. they have a myspace site where you can listen to some tracks and watch their top of the pops live performance, and if you're quick you can listen to an interview they gave recently on jo whileys live lounge (if you're not quick enough then you should be able to get the live tracks from fan site driftingnowhere). happy listening...
