Big weekend

I am still a bit fucked actually.

Now, go to iTunes and download Cream vs The Hoxtons - Sunshine Of Your Love (Radio Edit). Before you play it, imagine being in the middle of 50,000 people in Hyde Park. Something like this...

O2 Wireless, Fat Boy Slim, Hyde Park, LondonOn stage is Fat Boy Slim who's mixing up a fucking storm...

O2 Wireless, Fat Boy Slim, Hyde Park, LondonAnd I don't use the word fuck lightly...

O2 Wireless, Fat Boy Slim, Hyde Park, LondonNow play that song I told you to download. Yes, I was in fucking heaven. We were dancing, drinking and it was fucking awesome.

O2 Wireless, Fat Boy Slim, Hyde Park, LondonThe first rule you should know is that boys at music festivals are much hotter than those at gay pride.

Fit guys at O2 Wireless festival in Hyde Park, LondonI whinge about my job except when it gets me into the VIP area.

VIP area at Wireless festival in Hyde Park, LondonThere are comfortable chairs for lazy people to sit in. And the bar is free which is why I order about 20 mojito royales.

Then we head to the field to watch Fat Boy Slim who is playing that fuck-off Hoxtons song.

At some point I was drunk enough to enjoy a goddam Dunhill cigarette which is like smoking old boots.

That's Katie. She's ma bitch. Yes, that's right. Corrupt the kids! I think the song "Fat Boy Slim is fucking in heaven" was playing...

Corrupt the kids at the O2 Wireless festival in Hyde Park, LondonI wanna see this dude in 20 years time. Legend. This, however, is not something I wanna see. Bad tan, bad tattoo (and a bit gay).

And this picture segues nicely into gay pride, which is where I was earlier in the day. While there, I met this guy...

Sir Ian McKellen at London Pride 2008Another legend! He detected South African in my accent and told me about the first time he attended Pride in Johannesburg. This man deserves all the respect he gets, he was so friendly and unbelievably normal. Absolute class.

The most surreal moment at Pride was when this bloke tried to hand me a flyer extolling the virtues of Manhunt. I never know if they hand them out to the people who they think need it the most, so I politely declined his offer.

Manhunt dude at London Pride 2008Even though I was so tempted to say something, I didn't. Funny ol' things, these blogs.

By the end of a very long day I was suitably under the influence and generally happy. Which is why I have this need to drape myself over £120,000 sports cars, particularly Aston Martins.

Okay, so when I said there were no hot guys at Pride, maybe I was being a little unfair. You like?

ps at the airport waiting to board flight back to Paris

Bobby Cox said...

Timmy: It's Sunday afternoon and I'm still a bit drunk which means it was a brilliant day. Are you in London? Do you want to come to Counting Crows?
Is anyone going? Please tell me and let's make a team.

David: Yes, I think you're right. Are you in London? Do you like Counting Crows? Huh?

Bobby Cox said...

Czech: Yeah, it was London Pride yesterday. I have hundreds (kinda literally) more pictures that I'm going to have to post.
Make sure you don't miss Soho Pride then. I think it's sometime at the beginning of August.

ps the guy with the stonewall football shirt is in one of the pictures on my post here, when we went to the dogs in March with Stonewall FC.

He's the one second picture down, with the baseball cap. I recognise him instantly because of his resemblance to Xfe's step-brother.

ahoj

London Preppy said...

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!! I love it

Bobby Cox said...

London P: I also thought it was quite amusing. In a oh-my-god-we-live-in-a-fucking-village kind of way.

David said...

Ah I wish I live in london :) maybe 2010 though, for uni. And yes the Counting Crows are good.

Oh dear, LP reads this blog? we really do live in a fucking village then. I haven't met any of you guys in person and yet I can identify many of you if I saw you on the street.

we want more pix bobby!

fleetmonkey said...

Did you ask Ris Nia if the rumours about Akim were true?

Did you not set the alarm off on the Aston Martin -- surely they just have an alram that goes off if you look at the car too long.

I haven't been to Wireless for a couple of years - do they still let you text images to go up on the big screen? Lots of fun to be had there.

Bobby Cox said...

David: Of course London Preppy reads this blog. I pay good money for someone to hold a gun to his head to make sure that he does. (I'm lying actually)
I will post more pictures, promise.

Fleet: Ah! I forgot about that! How funny that you should remember. I should have asked - well, imagine getting ALL the gossip that he knows, it would be brilliant. And I don't know about texting. Maybe you can but I was on the wrong side of the alcohol to notice.
If you wanna text me dirty messages I'll give you my number.

fleetmonkey said...

Thanks for the offer on the number - but I can probably get it off the toilet wall next time I come to London :OP .

Glad to hear you had a good time.

Superdrewby said...

you lay on the aston?

if you had done that to one of ours your balls would have been surgically removed without anasethic!

my god man they scratch with clothes!

dickophile said...

i really want that guy in the green shirt. and omg you got to meat magneto!!!! it could have only been better if rebecca romijn was there cause i sometimes like to think that she's his hag in real life too.

musclician said...

Wow, not sure which I find more attractive, the boy with the camera or the bobby... Is it greedy to have both?

Bobby Cox said...

Fleet: Not every public toilet actually. But most of them.

Drew: Er?! I checked my jeans and there are no buttons on the bum side so I hope it didn't scratch. Besides, what's it doing in the street if you're not supposed to lie all over it.

Dick: The guy in the green shirt was very beautiful. Not handsome but beautiful. Magneto was neither but was very cool nonetheless.

Musclician: You can have both if you like?!

CJ said...

Great pics! Thanks for sharing.

Graham said...

The guy in the second last pic is hot. Me likes. Can you pleae send him by fedex, I don't want to wait for normal post. Thanks :)

Bobby Cox said...

cj: pleasure... x

Graham: Okay, I'll go and wrap him and his rather substantial guns up and send them to you. Standby please...

Timmy said...

Sorry I missed the Counting Crows. They'll be in Houston in September. Will you be here? I have plenty of room in my bed...er...I mean my house.

Graham said...

I'm getting worried now, I hope fedex haven't lost him! :(

Bobby Cox said...

Timmy: I will come if there's a plane that happens to be pointed in the direction of Houston, though I'm not the biggest fan of the Counting Crows - I just wanted to go because I had tickets.

Graham: I'll put in a call to check... I'm sure he's not lost.
