Inspirational would be an understatement in describing this man.
Rest in peace Madiba.

Back at the Lane earlier today for Spurs vs Manchester United. (these 12pm Sunday kickoffs are a pain though..)
Good to see this response after the game at the Etihad last week, and it’s a shame it was only a draw as I felt Spurs had the better chances.
Great cheeky under the wall free kick from Kyle for the first goal and what a strike from Sandro for the second!
#White Hart Lane
Spent all of this morning up at Xscape in Castleford on the indoor slope.
Really enjoying learning how to snowboard, and I’m definitely going to try and keep it up by going up to the indoor slope in Hemel Hempstead once I’m back in London, and maybe even a proper snowboarding trip once I’ve had a bit more experience!
Blink 182 - Feeling This
Listening to a bit of Feeling This this morning to celebrate 10 years of this great album.
Went to the Into it Over it show (with support from Slingshot Dakota and Koji) at Borderline last night.
Intersections has been one of my favourite albums of this year, and I saw Evan acoustically supporting Texas is the Reason back in July and it was a great set but with a full band in a small basement club IIOI worked even better.

Back at the Lane today, but shame about the result.
It was a poor first half and Newcastle took advantage, and of course that didn’t really get the crowd behind the team.
The second half was so much better, for both the football and atmosphere and I think we deserved at least a draw out of it but just couldn’t seem to get the ball in the back of the net.
But I’m not really too upset about the result. We actually played exciting, attacking football in the second half and i’d much rather we lose playing great football than scraping out a win like the Hull league game.
I think I’ve done a poor job of trying to put that last thought into words so I’ll finish with a quote that sums it up better than I can.
It is better to fail aiming high than to succeed aiming low. And we of Spurs have set our sights very high, so high in fact that even failure will have in it an echo of glory.
#White Hart Lane
My view from the Lane tonight.
In block 35 with Jason and Chloe and the 1882 lot. Such a fun night and a great atmosphere, which is how it should be for every game.
Good to see Lamela score tonight as well, hopefully this settles him down and he shows what he’s capable of now, and great to see Defoe break Martin Chivers’ European Goal record.

Thinking of submitting one or both of these to the supporters trust for the potential Park Lane Surfer Flag.
Any Opinions (good or bad)?
Walked through the Virgin Records 40 Years of Disruptions exhibition tonight after work.
Pretty cool to see so many pieces of musical heritage and culture all together as part of retrospective of a British record label that started as one record shop probably less than 10/15 miles away that has since become a house-hold name.
The exhibition included everything from The Sex Pistols, PiL, Boy George, Phil Collins/Genesis, The Spice Girls, The Rolling Stones, Massive Attack, I Roy (and other Front Line reggae artists), and all the way up to modern day artists like Daft Punk, DeadMau5, Laura Marling and Emeli Sande.
(Loved all the little nods to past magazines like The Face, Smash Hits, and Melody Maker scattered throughout as well).
