    Shouldn't laugh but fucking hell three sections on yr Wikipedia page just for fights! Assaults in the Houses of Parliament Joyce was arrested at 22:50 on 22 February 2012 in the Palace of Westminster by the Metropolitan Policeon suspicion of committing assault. He was reported to have attacked as many as six politicians,[29]including a Labour whip,[30] after having gone "berserk" following a dispute with a group of Tory MPs sitting nearby.[31][32] He headbutted and punched the Conservative MP, Stuart Andrew,[33] after striking Labour Assistant Whip, Phil Wilson, while Wilson was attempting to restrain him. He also headbutted Thurrock Conservative Councillor, Ben Maney, and punched Basildon Conservative Councillor, Luke Mackenzie, both of whom were attempting to break up the incident.[34] Two more Conservative MPs, Alec Shelbrooke and Jackie Doyle-Price, were also caught up in the fracas while attempting to intervene and calm Joyce down.[35] A door window was smashed as Joyce attempted to resist arrest before being removed by police and taken to Belgravia police station.[36] The disturbance occurred at the Strangers' Bar (reserved for MPs and their guests).[37] Suspended the following day from the Labour party after his arrest, on 23 February he was charged with three counts of common assault and released on police bail.[38] A fourth charge was added on 9 March.[39] He was fined £3,000 and ordered to pay £1,400 in compensation to his victims, but not given a custodial sentence.[39] In a statement before the House of Commons on 12 March 2012, he apologised personally to his victims, stated that he had resigned from the Labour Party, and that he intended to complete his current term as an MP but not seek re-election.[40] In August 2012, Joyce was back in Court after using scissors on 4 July 2012 to remove the electronic tagthat had been fitted to his leg as part of the community order; he was fined £600.[41] A year later, on 14 March 2013, Joyce was again arrested after a disturbance during a karaoke event in the sports and social bar of the House of Commons.[42][43] He was seen outside the bar wrestling on the floor with two police officers and reportedly had one of the officers in a headlock.[44][45]As it was his second alcohol-related incident on House of Commons premises, the following day Joyce was given an indefinite ban by the Office of the Speaker from purchasing or being served alcoholic beverages from all Palace of Westminster premises, including its eight bars. Joyce was released under police bail from Belgravia Police Station in London the following day, when it was revealed that he was facing a charge of occasioning actual bodily harm,[46] but he was not ultimately prosecuted.[47] Disturbance at Edinburgh AirportEdit On 19 May 2013, Joyce was arrested at Edinburgh Airport after police were called to an altercation between himself and airline staff regarding a mislaid mobile phone. He was reported to have struggled with police officers before being restrained on the ground and handcuffed.[48] On 21 March 2014, he pleaded guilty to a charge of breach of the peace at Edinburgh Sheriff Court and was fined £1,500 with £150 compensation.[49] Brawl in London shopEdit On 17 October 2014, Joyce was arrested after clashing with a teenager at a store in Camden, in London. He was charged with two counts of common assault and one count of criminal damage. He appeared at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court in London on 30 December 2014, where he pleaded not guilty and was given conditional bail to appear for trial.[50] On 1 May 2015, he was found guilty on two counts of common assault in an appearance at Westminster Magistrates' Court in London.[51] On 27 May 2015 he was sentenced to a 10-week jail term suspended for two years, and ordered to pay a £1,080 fine and to attend a rehabilitation course which aims to reduce violent behaviour.[52]

    Also: more telly-free nights, eat at the dinner table once a week, absolute bare-bones social media policy, plus my continued abstinence from commenting on things across all platforms except here, generally be a bit more cest la vie. I did it on here a few years back and it’s worked wonders, just assume everyone’s playing the great game and you have more of a laugh. IRL if someone cuts me up on the road, refers to me as ‘boss’, or uses a parent and baby parking space with grown kids, I just assume they’ve got a wasting disease and move on. It just works.

    Main thing I did this weekend was a solo adventure into londons famous west end with Ferngully to have a go on the underground train, go to the Transport for London museum (buy one ticket it's good for a year, been 4 times), met Santa who gave us a badge, sat in the top of an old charabanc, some volunteers printed out some old bus tickets for us, walked through the rain to get ramen (he's obsessed with Ponyo in which they have ramen), then went to Hamleys for which I should be committed but it was alright as long as you maintain your chill, which seems to be beyond most people, mainly the ones with stupid Timps haircuts and kids dressed in a lot of pink

    She's delayed her elective C-section by a day (which is uncontroversial) to make the vote, fair enough, regardless of the forgone conclusion of the vote. If the Torys think this is the thing that makes them look bad they might want to have a word with themselves

    Weekend On Mars

    There was a really embarrassing pro Brexit protest in town yesterday. Under 50 people wearing yellow vests with shitty slogans like “Brexit means exit”. Someone tried to give me a flier which was a word document printed out (literally a page of type) but I refused (as did everyone else I saw him approach). Fuck off, cunts, the will of the people of Manchester was to remain

    VESPERTINE By 2001, Bjork had reached probably the height of her international fame. Dancer in the Dark had garnered international attention, with both critical praise and rumours of conflict between Bjork and director Lars Von Trier. Her appearance at the Academy Awards in March of that year introduced the world to the Swan Dress, now so iconic that it has its own wikipedia page. “I was very aware when I went to the Academy Awards that it would probably be my first and last time. So I thought my input should really be about fertility, and I thought I'd bring some eggs” Bjork told reporters, but the mainstream media was not 100% charmed, prompting criticism and insults from people who should really know better. Vespertine began record during the making of DITD and was released in August of 2001. A reflection of the conflicting moods in her life, artistic success on the one hand, attacks from collaborators and the press on the others, lyrically Bjork seems to be back on the retreat. Hidden Place, It’s Not Up to You and Pagan Poetry especially talk of escapism and frustration, harking back to the frustration with the world that Bjork expressed on Post. The cover features Bjork turning away from the camera, covering her eyes. This first Bjork album with a cover that doesn’t feature her looking directly at the lens. In stark contrast, however musically Bjork is perhaps at her most intimate ever, Gling Glo notwithstanding. Vocal performances are almost Jazz-like, at time ignoring rhythmic structures, almost completely untreated, whispered directly in your ear. On Vespertine, Bjork has recognised the future of music is downloading and stream and has deliberately chosen instrumentations that will survive the MP3 compression used by platforms such as Napster. Bells harps, music boxes, microbeats formed from household objects and choirs are the albums signatures sounds, with production help from Matmos, the Notwist and Opiate (or some opiates? Lol) Hidden Place: Lead single, Hidden Place stars with soft keys and glitch samples, with Bjork almost speaking over the top, giving way to an uplifting choir in the chorus. Beautiul. Cocoon: Similar to some her slower numbers on Post, Cocoon is as intimate as it gets. She’s singing directly into your ear. About 10 years ahead of this time, Lorde pretty much picked up this sound and ran with it on her debut. Fair shout, It’s Not Up To You: Riffing over a dub-orchestra infused versed, Bjork then gives us one of the best choruses on the album, then quickly steals it away. Sublime Undo: This is breathy downbeat number treads familiar ground. The beats are interesting, the harp lovely. It’s the kind of standard Bjork filler that keeps her albums at a certain level of quality. Lovely. Pagan Poetry: Bjork reportedly had music boxes custom made for some the tracks on the album, and here they are used to astonishing effect. One of the singles of the album, Pagan Poetry is the most forward-looking on the album. The arrangement is intricate, but the songs lacks an obvious verse/chorus structure. This lack of form in later albums may lose her some fans, but here it just heightens the tension. Frosti: Instrumental, music boxes. Nice, although if you’ve spent 40 mins downloading it on Limewire, you’re not going to happy. Aurora: Again, a wandering melody, backed by an inuit choir and a harp. An Echo a Stain: In the second half of the album, it starts to fade into the background. This track is...nice, but at times is so slight it fails to really captivate. Sun in my Mouth: Again, this may as well be the same track as An Echo a etc. Pretty, but slight. Heirloom: Bjork graciously goes back to actual songwriting again (heh!) for the end of the album. A repetitive number with a bosa nova casio beat. Very sweet. Harm of Will: Whereas, the formless songs earlier failed to really engage, Harm of Will is a captivating number. The lack of rhythmic accompaniment means that the modest arrangements carries vocal in an almost operatic form. Beautiful Unison: The 6 minutes closer. Unison, is pretty and brings together most of the instruments on the album. The first record of the download age. (well I’m sure there are others that qualify, but for the sake of argument, yeah?) Vespertine suffers from scope problems. With 12 tracks and half of them over 5 mins, Vespertine is overly long, often directionless and lacks the cohesion that made Homogenic such as joy. But, as pointed out, this could be pretty much by design. Bjork is oo iconoclast to stick to the sacred album format, and here is the sound of an artist too fascinated by the sound creation process to be confined to the standard form. A difficult album, and from here on out I expect that they all will be. However, even the lull of Frosti to Sun in my Mouth still has some really sweet sounds. 7/10
