After nearly a decade waiting, Alan Moore's epic novel Jerusalem is finally in my grubby hands, along with a signed naughty postcard. See you in a month.

So, we went to see Ghostbusters and you know what? I laughed all the way through. I had a much more open mind about it than most people I think and I never bothered to watch the trailer, but even still it's way better than I had expected or that it even has a right to be.

So now there are two really entertaining, hilarious films called Ghostbusters in the world. I'm absolutely okay with that.

Oh, and personally speaking, Kate McKinnon as Jillian Holtzmann is the most attractive female character I've ever seen in anything ever. Yes, including Jessica Rabbit. I actually had to bite my knuckles whenever she was on screen.

In one photo/view, we can see architecture from the 60s, the Saxons, the Normans, the 00s, the Romans and today. Only in #London.

Hi Google+, sorry I haven't been around in a while, I had to shave the cat.

So, I realise that most of you are American, or at least from outside the UK. As you may or may not have heard, there's a vote going on tomorrow on these fair isles and it's a doozy. Way more important than a national election. It's the so-named " #Brexit " vote and it's for whether Britain remains a part of the European Union or not.

Now, I realise that for many of you, the intricacies of the bottom of your sock drawer are more important and interesting to you than British politics, but this result will actually have an important effect on the world stage over the coming years, especially if Britain votes to leave. As a result, I've decided to paint a picture of the general landscape of the debate in terms that you might find more familiar; namely as an analogy with the Trump Vs Hilary spectacle in America right now, which is surprisingly parallel in many ways.

Essentially, the people voting Remain are like Hilary voters: aware that the state of things needs massive improvement and is far from perfect, but recognise that it's much more sensible and prudent to let people who are experienced, knowledgeable and established in their fields of expertise take the reigns of power and hope that the democratic process can influence their decisions going forward, rather than take a massive, unnecessary risk with the entire country and economy and throw caution to the wind for the promised lie of manufactured "revolution". In essence, "The better the devil you know".

The Leave campaigners are like Trump voters (and Trump has endorsed the Leave campaign, which says a lot): spurred and frothed-up by fear mongering, hatred of immigrants, impossibly rose-tinted nostalgia of an illusory bygone age and the empty rhetoric of political buffoons, riding the egotistical wave of working-class adulation.

Whereas our national elections are provincial, mostly dull affairs that are impossibly quaint when compared to the bloated circus performed for America, we've taken huge notes when it's come to the Brexit debate and got properly, pathetically partisan to make up for it.

In case you hadn't gleaned as much from this grandiloquent tirade, I'm voting remain and urging all British people within earshot to do the same. So if you are British, or know anyone who is, please get out to vote tomorrow and #voteremain for the sake of all that is sensible in this world. Don't let the demagogues drag us backwards. That is all.

It's been a while since I've been over to the Emerald Isle. Seemed fitting to mark the occasion in the traditional fashion.

I first saw Radiohead at the YMCA in Chelmsford in 1993. I thought they were rubbish. I saw them again at the Astoria (nostalgic sob) in 1997 and have seen them every time they toured Britain since. I'm about to see them again, showing off their amazing new album with one of my best buddies. Life's alright.

Rooftop cocktails above Barcelona, before the evening's meal. So, how was your Monday?
