breaking bad

Resistance is Futile

So I thought I might as well get my money's worth from being on a hypnotherapy course, and on Sunday I got one of the students to hypnotise me and give me a post-hypnotic suggestion to go to the gym more often (i.e. 'at all' - I was feeling so rough until Easter I got out of the habit).

The experience was pleasant - in my mind I was a child playing on the beach and a voice, like that of ghod, issued from teh heavens 'GO TO THE GYM, COMMUNICATOR'.

So, last night, I put on my trainers and went to the gym, like a zombiefied automaton, with my resistance gently overcome by the Power of Hypnotism. Now let's see if I can keep it up.

The Bangkok variations

"Here's a little thing that's gonna please ya/ Just a little town down in Indonesia"

When I was a teenager my favourite song was 'Bangkok' by Alex Chilton. Cos it's way hot.

Alex isn't on Youtube and you have to pay to download the music thing (only 19 cents though) but here are two cover versions I found for free

The Nomads

The Dum-Dum Boys (warning - french rock band)

Those are both quite tough versions; in the original Alex sounds like he's fainting.

I know Bangkok isn't in Indonesia
