Whilst the others are back in Blighty screaming “Corr blimey Gov’ner” and “Apples and Pears” from the roof of every Weatherspoons as they down Boddingtons and dance to the Beatles I remain in the States. I have embarked on what I like to call “The Super 8 Road Trip,” staying in as many as possible as I make the jouney from Seattle to San Francisco. Luckily this journey is helped by PG Tips and a copy of Empire.
So far I have seen bits of American scenery that I have not glimpsed before (which is a rarity) and yesterday I stopped by the forest of Mount Hood in Oregon, only to spot wolf tracks! How I ran away…
But expect some photos of the wall decor of the Super 8’s as well as me standing in front of various mountains and lakes and shops with various oddities in.
Also in Portland I was walking past a pub about 8 in the evening, only to hear Frank Black performing “Where is my mind.” It is a funny old world.
Also Star Trek? My friend forewarned me I would get a total “Nerd Boner” and that I did, although Zac from Parenthetical Girls and Gareth sideproject “Them Guys,” warned me about Syler’s “Live Long and Prosper” being a bit…claw like…
Simon Pegg (as much as I love him) maybe should have underplayed his part, perhaps having a few lessons on how to speak with a Scottish accent by watching a lot more Rab C Nesbitt. I genuinely would love to see Star Trek about six more times, but maybe with less clapping and whooping everytime someone said something that someone else once said in the original series.
Hugs and kisses
