Rune stone, Krogsta, Uppland, Sweden by Swedish National Heritage Board on Flickr.

Via Flickr:
Rune stone (U 1125) in Krogsta, from the 6th century AD, with a human figure and an inscription. One of three known rune stones in Uppland carved with the elder rune alphabet, and the only one still in its original position. The inscription is only partly deciphered - the text on the backside probably renders the word “stone”.

Runsten (U 1125) i Krogsta, från 500-talet e.Kr, med en människofigur och en inskrift. En av tre kända runstenar i Uppland med urnordiska runor och den enda som fortfarande står på ursprunglig plats. Inskriften är bara delvis tolkad - texten på baksidan återger troligen ordet “sten”.

Its been a long summer...... So long I got a metaphorical Heat Stroke

Over the summer I forgot what music, blogging and basic social networking was for a good 4 months (from june to now).  I left Liverpool, went back to what we call ‘LDN’ and basically chilled. And when I say ‘chill’ I mean indulged too much in Jazz Cigarettes and Sky HD. I don’t even like the TV but Sky Sport news is the one… and when it’s in HD its hypnotizing.

I basically became a lout. I did nothing all day, watching and reading football up dates like it was the bible being written in front of my very eyes. In between that, the standard eating, smoking and going to watch football games occurred. It was wonderful…. Some call it unproductive but I call it gathering and effectively using inspiration I have personally collective over the summer period

    But what people don’t understand this was all part of our cunning plan……

BUT NOW WE ARE ALL BACK AND BEING PRODUCTIVE!!!! FUCKING HAVE IT!!!! I dunno what the other lads did….. probably had a nice time but for me it was a time of self reflection and self indulgence…….

(I actually did do stuff but for the effect of writing I was a lazy stoner who enjoyed the transfer window a bit too much)

NOW!!! UPDATES!!!

This weekend (The weekend of 22nd and 23rd of October) JazzHands are playing ye ole Oxjam Festival in the lovely city of Oxford (I have never been to oxford, and to be honest I don’t know much about the gig, but its in the place called ‘The cellar’ and I’ve been assured it’s a good venue)

Then the next day we are playing Mello Mello in Liverpool…… I hear its a fiver but its all for a good cause……. CHARITY AND SHIT!!! also as an added incentive to go to this marvelous event with marvelous bands,  we will give you a free DIGITAL DOWNLOAD OF THE TEP!!!
