  1. What are you listening to?

    I'm not a Bob Dylan fan, but his most recent album Rough and Rowdy Ways is pretty great. Very sparse arrangements with him crooning rather than singing over it all. If I am not a fan why listen to this? Because curiosity got the better of me. I thought it would be interesting to hear what a record by a 80 year old man would sound like. Especially an 80 year old man who has been making records since he was a teenager. And whilst not identifying as a Bob Dylan fan, there is quite a lot of his work I do like. It's just there is just so much more that I find junk. A hell of a lot more. I mean, the guy makes triple albums of American Standards. Ouch. Painful.
  2. Your Top 10 books!

    Good topic to make first post. Off the top of my head, my all time top 10 are (at the moment) 1 Laidlaw - William Mcilvanney 2 Catch 22 - Joseph Heller 3 Harry's Game - Gerald Seymour 4 One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest - Ken Kesey 5 The Wasp Factory - Iain Banks 6 Weaveworld - Clive Baker 7 A Prayer for Owen Meaney - John Irving 8 Gorky Park - Martin Cruz Smith 9 Selling Hiter - Robert Harris 10 Love in the Time of Cholera - Gabriel Garcia Marquez When it comes to Laidlaw - really all the Jack Laidlaw books could be in the top ten.
