London ramen

Shoryu Ramen (London, England)

@shoryuramen

My random, desktop image of the day reminded me that I had some ramen in London a year and a half ago. I have no memory of this ramen which probably means it wasn’t that good or that bad.

Copenhell withdrawals and a solution

Diamond Head’s Brian Tatler @ 2016 Metal Brew

Copenhell hasn’t been over for more than 70 hours, yet I’m craving more. I’ll be going to the Roskilde Festival for four days in a row beginning tomorrow, and yet I know I’ll be going through withdrawals next week. So even though I previously said, with regard to the Metal Magic Festival, that

“If Diamond Head is playing on Thursday or Saturday AND at least two of the bands below are also playing on Thursday or Saturday, then I will probably make the trip for just that day.
Nifelheim
Tribulation
Absu”

and although Diamond Head is playing Saturday and only Absu is also playing on Saturday, I’ve decided to make the trip to Fredericia again anyway.

My reasoning is that if Diamond Head was ever playing two hours away from me in Southern Oregon, I’d make the trip. Therefore, tossing Absu in as an added bonus means I should make the journey while I have the chance.

So next Saturday I’ll be adding Metal Magic to my summer itinerary.

No Sleep ’til Hammersmith

No Sleep ’til Hammersmith

@myMotorhead #london @ThisDayInMETAL

On this day in 1981 Motorhead released “No Sleep ’til Hammersmith”. Last summer I found it hard to resist taking this photo while riding the Tube with my wife getting plenty of sleep ’til Hammersmith. We were actually on our way to Kew Gardens.

TBT

tower of london performance

Tower of London actors in period costume

Throwing it back for this Thursday to that time I built a time machine and went back 600 years to the Tower of London.

Seriously, though, the actors are the best part of the Tower of London these days–very fun performances in excellent costumes.

St. Paul’s Cathedral

St. Paul's Cathedral

Even though many of London’s attractions are free, a visit to St. Paul’s Cathedral, just over the Millennium Bridge, will set you back £18. We didn’t have to decide whether we wanted to pay the fee as we arrived after 4 p.m., and they were closed for the day.
