      Something Wicked This Way Comes...   10/09/2019

      The Autumn Supporter Giveaway!       Welcome to the very first of the seasonal BCF supporter giveaways! This month also marks one year since I took on the forum, so I want to say an extra huge thank you to all of you for keeping this place going. I have a little bit more to say about that later but, for now, let's get to the giveaway!     The Autumn Giveaway winner will be getting two Penguin Little Black Classics, The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe and To Be Read At Dusk by Charles Dickens. Both of these little books contain three atmospheric short stories, perfect for autumnal evenings. The winner will also get Mary Shelley tea (a lavender and vanilla black tea) from Rosie Lea Tea's Literary Tea Collection (https://www.rosieleatea.co.uk/collections/literary-tea-collection) and a chocolate skull, to really get that spooky atmosphere .   and...   A special treat for a special month. The winner will choose one of the following recent paperback releases from the independent bookshop Big Green Bookshop:       The Wych Elm by Tana French A House of Ghosts by W.C. Ryan Melmoth by Sarah Perry The Familiars by Stacey Halls  The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White   The winner will be chosen via the usual random selection process in one week. Patreon supporters are entered automatically. If you aren't a patreon supporter but you'd like to join in with this giveaway, you can support here: https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum.   I really hope you're all going to like this introduction to the seasonal giveaways. It's been a lot of fun to put together. Other chocolate skulls may have been harmed during the selection process…

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 ;)
