I drove down to the coast this evening to take drown_not_wave out for dinner, and we were talking about how she might be able to verify a news story that she'd heard, that a man found strangled and alight in a wheelie bin a week or so back was the former drummer of the heavy metal band Warrior Soul, of whom she used to be quite fond.
When we returned to her flat, a few minutes with Google turned up an obituary for him on the band's site, and also a couple of other reports of it on other sites. One of them had a message board for tributes, and -- in among the many Americans wondering what on earth a wheelie bin was -- someone had written:
Warrior Soul fucking smoke
to which my immediate response was
well, yes, mate, if someone sets them on fire I'm sure they bloody do...
