“First time I lose I drink whiskey,
Second time I lose I drink gin,
Third time I lose I drink anything, cos I know I’m gonna win.”

Gram Parsons

I have dipped my toe into the murky world of online gambling for the first time. Seemed worth a shot, eh?

The Thom Yorke album is beautiful and interesting and I genuinely hope that it wins. I’m not a Muse fan by any strecth of the imagination, but at 21 to 1 and with a lot of industry support they seemed like a good bet. Worst case scenario? I lose a tenner and learn a valuable life lesson.
