I don't want control of you
These days, I just don't know. I mean, what gives... did Summer leave the party early or something? If so with whom? I think she got lucky with Winter, judging by the weird mix of rain, shine, sun and storms we are experiencing around these parts. Sigh. And, the thought for the day is this: it has to be about looking forwards, not backwards, you know? Weather and otherwise. Which brings me to... so, term has started and as such things may get a wee bit quiet around here. You will know the drill by now, I'm sure. For the moment I still have gainful employment at the University. For how long though? Well, we still don't really know. More news in November, I suspect, and I will doubtless make further cryptic comments in due course. Or not so cryptic if I am 'redeployed' or presented with 'early leave'. Anyway, Saturday can't come quickly enough, I must say: marching for public sector justice in the morning and then an evening of listening to some of the best shambolic indie-pop noises that have ever come straight outa Glasgow. Hurrah! Oh, and if they play 'Speeding Motorcycle' I will, of course, think of YOU. :) I am also really excited about getting to hear the wonderful Conquering Animal Sound play live as 'Kammerspiel' (the debut album) is just magical and I suspect it will be my album of the year. Perhaps!
The Pastels - 'Love it's getting better' (cover version) (4.05)
Keep in time to the marching and the music, comrades.
