I start my new job on Tuesday as an Assistant Park Warden, finally, after being on benefits for 10 months. Thanks future jobs fund! I get to work mostly outside in parks during the nice weather, and more importantly, not at a desk.

Also, I’m going to a few festivals this year. Latitude for a weekend, Leeds (mostly for The Libertines) on the Friday. I’m thinking about others too.

Latitude Festival – line up

I wouldn’t mind seeing; Belle & Sebastian, Laura Marling, The Maccabees, Richard Hawley, The XX, The Horrors, Vampire Weekend, The Coral and lots of other literary and comedy performances, such as John Cooper Clarke and Mark Lamarr.

Leeds Festival – line up

I wouldn’t mind seeing; Libertines (obviously), The Cribs, The Maccabees (again), The Mystery Jets, The Futureheads and maybe Arcade Fire. There’s tonnes more to be announced for Leeds as well.

And if I can go to Kendal Calling I’d like to see; The Coral (again), The Futureheads (again if I’m not tired of them), OK GO, Lancashire Hotpots and The Craig Charles Funk And Soul Show (which looks hilariously brilliant).

I’m excited.

A tad strange, but so far so good.

I’ve also started reading a Robert Ludlum book — which is massive.

This Mess We’re In – PJ Harvey & Thom Yorke

Interesting video, pretty sure its a fan one. Nice song too.

Don’t know who you’re voting for this election?

Have a look at this website, which shows you the six main parties policies on certain issues, without telling which party it is. You choose which policy sounds right to you, and it tells you where your interests lie.

Of course, there is a bit of a flaw; you need to see the whole picture of the party. You don’t want to vote for a party who promises say great education reform, yet is incredibly racist.

Anyway, you should Vote Labour.

While I’m here. Tax breaks for married couples? Where’s the fairness in that? People shouldn’t want to get married for tax reasons. What about partners who are happily unmarried? Ridiculous Tory policy.
