-          Future Ritcherd]

 

Hello.  I’m Ritcherd J Winterfood (that’s ‘Jez’ to the Angel crowd).  I have passions and desires.  1989’s groovy, isn’t it?  I’m trying not to be as arrogant as I might have been in the past.  And less twattish.  My greatest friend is Danyel ‘Flash’ Gordon + we are very close.  We toss over piss videos.  Apart from Flash, MY BEST MATES ARE: Danny Black, Ash, Legs, Jonny Badcock, Maggie, Natalia Wnek, Raquel Stevens, Astra Trellis, Daniel Abbott, Emma Goddard and tonnes more.  I enjoy music + I love my family.

 

Love in life,

 

Ritcherd

Later:

 

11.50pm

 

‘Flaming Desire’ – Bill Nelson



 

It’s MAY

 

A man’s attempted to massacre a town with a shotgun.

 

I’ve been extremely nostalgic today.  There was no College, of course + I felt extremely lonely here at home. 

 

Wisbech was dead, but I saw Dan OliverJoni in the Park for a little while, but it was rather UNGROOVY.

 

Rang Natalia and she was lovely, but we’ve grown so far apart in so many ways.  Even so, she says that once she’s got her A-levels out of the way we can spend a little time together + perhaps even go on a picnic.

 

Today’s weather felt glorious – more like August.  It was so warm; warmer than Majorca, apparently.  Tomorrow, according to BBC Weather, East Anglia will be the hottest place in the UK.  GOOD!  T-shirt weather is here!

 

I got a bit ‘look back in sorrow’-type-thing today over girls I’ve loved, notably Suzi and BMW, but most especially Maggie.

 

I FANCY HAVING A PARTY.  I’LL WORK ON THAT.

 

Records today: ‘Wise Up! Sucker’, ‘Slow Time’, ‘Marian (Version)’, ‘Body and Soul’, and ‘Flaming Desire’.

 

I went to The Angel this evening.  Got a little tipsy.  It was crap.  Nobody came in so FUCK OFF!

 

Oh, what will we do this summer?  Isle of Arran?  Richmond? (And who will be the 4th member of our company?)

 

ANNIE HALL – the Woody Allen film – was really good.

 

Best thing tonite was MIAMI VICE.  Sheena Easton was in it and she was really nice.  About 1980/81she was my ideal female, but I liked her in a different way tonite.  The story was brilliant, and when she married Sonny (Don Johnson), I was gobsmacked!  It’ll end in tears, I bet…

 

Later:

 

‘In Slow Time’ – Peter Hammill



 

Today, I’m thinking: ‘FUCK OFF … The Chinese Play’ll be shit.  We’ve got no publicity.’

 

Last nite, I dreamt I was in a corner shop, buying pornographic magazines – all very strong – for 10p each.  And then I found all kinds of Marvel Graphic Novels for only 38p each.  Later, I went into WH SMITH’s and found loads of dirt cheap Doctor Who fanzines of really brilliant quality.  Flash and Danny were with me, but I kept my find to myself.  Which I wouldn’t do in real life, but in the dream it felt like a discovery of universal importance.
