On the bars

I've been told off recently for not posting enough pics of the family. You know when they say that to you that they don't really mean pics of the three of us, they mean good quality photographs in high definition of the child. As previously warned, the procurement of this new phone toy has expanded my recording capabilities, so here I'm sharing with you proud father moment number #2115.

For those of you unsufficiently impressed with this feat, this was his second time crossing the monkey bars unaided. The first time I wasn't expecting him to make it across and so wasn't filming!

There's a prize for anyone who can work out the significance of the number.

Desorden Social

Here's a quick treat for you. Taking me right back to my roots, Desorden Social are a ska-punk band from Bogota who have been on the go since 1996. Things get a bit confusing if you Google them, as there is also a Colombian rap band by the exact same name, and they've just released an album, so it must be hell working in the local record shops and dealing with cross, confused Desorden Social customers. Not that the ska-punkers can complain much - their moniker is a Spanish translation of Social Disorder, and yes, you guessed it, there was a Social Disorder playing growly metally hardcore in the Agnostic Front mould, round New York in the early nineties. If the Myspace stats are anything to go by, Desorden Social are definitely the most popular incarnation of this pair of words.
