The beard is the longest it's ever been. But what to do now? Push on through until Christmas and dye it white? Shave it all off (and then grow a 'tache) for a worthy cause? Or how about a plait? I think technoviking has a plait.
Sad times on Goldhawk Road. The Meijin martial arts supply shop has closed down.
It was a true landmark. The quality of its kung fu pants was legendary, and I even saw Ian Brown coming out of there one afternoon - I think he'd nipped across from the recording studio opposite. I don't where Meijin has disappeared to, but if you notice a kung fu shop opening in your neck of the woods, treasure it, because you'll never know when it might up and leave you.
PS for those who are interested, Meijin means "Brilliant Man".
Was looking at some stuff on a site this morning (Marcus Walters - a fine illustrator) when I came across this. I was taken aback. It looks a bit like me. It's a better version of me than the one I drew last year (below). Maybe I'll get a copy.
