Chop’s Journal - 7 Jun 2020

One of the great lockdown conundrums is how I’m putting on weight despite drinking much less than I normally would (honest) and exercising more frequently.

Thursday I watched a Knock2Bag comedy show streamed via the MOTH Club. It featured Lou Sanders, Tim Key and a bunch of comics I hadn’t seen before and it definitely boosted my mood. 


Out Of Time - Shark Toys

Music I’m enjoying

‪Stats dominated by my three plays approach so new albums by Deerhoof, Erland Cooper (the final album in his brilliant Orkney trilogy) and The Cool Greenhouse leading the way this week.
