Day 15: Boston
AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 LOUSY TUNES
Orange is not a colour that suits me. I tried to tell the prison wardens this but apparently it is the duty of the American penitentiary system to make people look as inhuman as possible. At least the[…]

Day 14: Massachusetts
AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 LOUSY TUNES
Jail. Four walls holding me in. Bars on the window. Really rather oppressive. Not a place for a sophisticated girl like me. It turned out that they did not have the kind of specialist holding f[…]

Day 13: New England
AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 LOUSY TUNES

I woke to a stunning sunrise after quite possibly 24 hours of sleep. Destroying out of control record obsessed newsreaders takes it out of the girl and I was looking forward to exploring my new […]

Day 12: Eruption
AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 LOUSY TUNES

I did not have much time to react. The rumbling of the ground signaled either a very heavy bassline being played (say by the dual bassists of Ned’s Atomic Dustbin) or a major plate tectonic s[…]

Day 11: So Lonely
AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 LOUSY TUNES

I awoke strung up on some sort of makeshift crucifix. Upon further examination it seemed to be constructed from a sun lounger and my wrists were bound by the elastic used to keep the cushions on. […]

Day 10: Deeper Underground
AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 LOUSY TUNES

I must have walked for miles in that cave system. Everytime I seemed to be getting closer to the source of the infernal noise, it turned out to be another echo chamber. Much of the system[…]

Day 9: The Sound Of The Underground
AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 LOUSY TUNES

I crept back into the container to sleep, not trusting the strange sounds of this island. Hunger did over-take me the night before though and I trapped, killed and skinned one of[…]

Day 8: Desert Island
AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 LOUSY TUNES

I was awoken the next day by a small furry creature nuzzling up against me. Leaping back in fear in case it was a member of ZZ Top without the name beard, i discovered it was some kind of muskr[…]

Day 7: The Darkness
AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 LOUSY TUNES

I like to think of myself as a strong, capable woman. I have stamina. I can endure much. Why once I even fought my way through an entire stadiums worth of David Bowie fans to get to the front an[…]

Day 6: Metal Box
AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 LOUSY TUNES

Crisis has just hit. I was in rather high spirits last night, after Crispian had discovered exactly why tomcats make “THAT” noise, and was supping a comforting single in my bunk. I had […]
