I love all kinds of music. Classical. Pop. Electronic. Industrial. I'm never happier than when listening to Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster or Nine Inch Nails or Presets or a little bit of Holst. I have a soft spot for old crooners too. But dear, sweet brain, for the love of deities, WHY do you give me this?

I'm an awkward teenager again! I'm mooning over Peter Harris in fifth form and wondering if anyone will ever notice me behind my frizzy ginger hair and glasses. Whatever next? Tiffany?! Eesh!

There has been a plea today via James Moran on Twitter for help in catching the assailants in this case. The man in his sixties who was attacked in the middle of the street died today after suffering a violent homophobic beating in Central London. Even though this violent crime was perpetrated in the wide open, in one of the busiest areas of London and the victim later died of his head injuries the Police have no clear leads and it has received limited press in the UK, some saying due to the fact the victim was gay.

I don't know if the accusation of lack of interest due to the victim's sexual orientation is true, or whether it's just a sad fact of our society that violent crimes of this nature go largely unreported due to their prevalence. However, it's chilling to note that violent crimes with a reported homophobic motive have risen by 14% in the Metropolitan Police area since April of this year. That's 39 people who otherwise would have quite happily gone about their day but for some reason were singled out for who they are or who they were perceived to be.

I know my f-list isn't large, but if any of you happened to be in Central London around two weeks ago of an evening or if you can recognise the people in the pictures then do your bit. I know that this is an extremely long shot but if you want to post to your own f-list and link to my post or copy and paste, the more people that see this story, the better.
