      Important Announcement!   07/28/2018

      Dear BCF members,   This forum has been running now for many years, and over that time we have seen many changes. Generalised forums are nowhere near as popular as they once were, and they have been very much taken over by blogs, vlogs and social media discussions. Running a forum well takes money, and a lot of care and attention, as there is so much which goes on behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly.   With all of this in mind, and after discussion within the current moderator team, the decision has been made to close this forum in its current format. I know that this will disappoint a lot of our long term members, but I want to reassure you that it's not a decision which has been taken lightly.    The remaining moderator team have agreed that we do not want to lose everything which is special about our home, and so we are starting a brand new facebook group, so that people can stay in touch, and discussions can continue. We can use it for free and should be easier for us to run (it won't need to be updated or hosted). We know not everyone has FaceBook, but we hope that those of you who are interested will join the group. We will share the link, and send invites as soon as we are ready to go. Added: We may as well get this going, find us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/195289821332924/   The forum will close to new registrations, but will remain open for some time, to allow people to collect up any information, reading lists etc they need to, and to ensure they have contact details for those they wish to stay in touch with.    The whole team feel sad to say goodbye, but we also feel that it's perhaps time and that it feels like the right choice. We hope we can stay in touch with all of you through our new FaceBook group.   I personally want to thank everyone who has helped me moderate the forum, both in the past and the present, and I also want to thank every single person who has visited, and shared their love of books.. I'm so proud of everything we've achieved, and the home we built.   Please visit the new section in the Lounge section to discuss this further, ask questions etc.
Kylie

What are you listening to?

I've been listening to all my CD's in alphabetical order in the car - just a way of making sure that I don't keep listening to the same old stuff. I hit K this week, so I've got Kings X first four albums in the car.

70s Bowie, on vinyl.  Last night it was Station to Station and Young Americans.  Not sure which of his I'll play tonight.

 

I'll be playing an Eagles Best Of as well, that's for sure.  (Another one that's bitten the dust.  What are you doing to us, 2016?)

I'm stunned by this .. to think he was so ill when he made it. It's a difficult watch but also inspiring. To take the knowledge and experience of your illness and imminent death and turn it into art is something quite extraordinary.

'Everybody knows me now' .. well .. he got that right! He knew exactly how it would be.

I like to listen to my CDs whilst I do my ironing; usually David Gray, Josh Groban, James Blunt but today it was Kate Bush. Love her earlier songs, not so keen on her recent ones.

Heard this on the drive home today and thought of you Claire :hug: It was unbelievably soothing on a day when the weather has chucked almost everything at us .. the car was being buffeted back and forth but then George sang us into calmer (slightly :D) weather

I feel a bit uncultured after reading what others are listening to. To each their own I guess  :P 

I've been incessantly listening to Sleeping At Last's discography, especially their Yearbook Collection :) But, Sia's album came out yesterday and that might become my new musical obsession :D

Oh yes George Michael - Kissing a Fool is just lovely.  Wish he'd do something new.

 

Good luck with the exams Poet.

Jazz is always best, Poet ;)

 

I'm listening to a Senate Finance Committee hearing on the new 2017 govt budget proposal.  Exciting, right?  No, but I need be informed about where my tax dollars may potentially be spent  :blink:

Heard this today, exquisitely beautiful.

 

Wow, that was pretty wonderful. Also enjoyed the video itself, especially the scenes showing the countryside. I wonder where it was filmed?

Been listening to Ellington at Night by Nancy Harms today - thanks to Peacefield for recommending it! It reminds me of Blossom Dearie, which can only be a good thing ;)
