I'm going to spend the rest of the morning listening to b-sides and reading In The Beginning by Jenny Watkins-Isnardi. Does this count more as a rites of passage or a breakdown?


EDIT: My fucking god this is awful. I heard it was shit, thought I might be able to laugh at how bad it is but fuck me... I will get through this. I will not give up and I will not give in, or summat.

Scratch that, it was too shit.

Listening to The Love Of Richard Nixon. I still hear "the best years never found you" as "the bastards never found you". I suppose it'd kinda fit. Makes more sense than "I am idiot drug hive" or "tiny massive hands" anyway.

What is this book actually about?
I had to google that, but Amazon isn't very helpful and reviews on that page are quite mixed

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Beginning-Li.../dp/1857823788

make your own opinion

My life with the Manics

Cool James was Kylie's number one fan

Nick loved dressing up in his mother's flowery blouses

Moment Richey became a Manic

Hard to take it seriously when it sounds like bad fanfiction. A bit confused about the writing style. Is this woman writing it or was she interviewed and the answers patched together to make a book?

Cricri, just ignore this, because she's on the hate shelf of everybody. just like that Angie Kruger, Jenny Watkins-Isnardi is just another little fucker who wants to earn some money on Manics popularity.

Thanks both. I read the first paragraph of the first link and I was like ''Why am I in the fanfic section?'' but then I realised it was an extract from the book. What a backstabbing whore! Also, being able to type doesn't make you a writer...gosh, I wrote better essays when I was 12!

Going by what I'd read people saying about it I thought I'd be able to laugh at how bad it is but I'm only cringing. It's just weird that it was published in 2000 yet she's trying to pull off passages of conversation that you just wouldn't remember from 13 years ago. I'm only three chapters in but so far she's been on a bus, she's sung Son Of A Preacher Man down the phone to Nicky and the police turned up at her house cos her best mate was a dirty stop out for a couple of nights. I think we're supposed to think omg she's so like Richey. Oh and she had a pint with James and tries to make him out to be a bit of a wanker and accuses him of puttin socks down the front of his trousers.

Aye, best way of puttin it is fanfic. No doubt there's much better in appreciation though...

Ha, I remember seeing that and thinking "Facing Page Top Left", "Me And Stephen Hawking" and "William's Last Words"? Nah, bollocks titles, they'll never use them...

On eof many silly moments in that book is when she describes the look in a dogs eye despite the fact that she wasn't there at the time!

Was an amusing read at the time, even if as Rich says it's more or less a fanfic!

Had a brief Manics appearance in my dream last night; Nicky had announced a new solo album and apparently it was going to be synthpop.
