monumental lapse of concentration... so many things swirling in my head...
erm, Saturday nights New Pollutants gig was superb as usual... I really really like the new-er tracks benjo...
nice schtuff indeedy.
(relating to one person only footnote: see dear, in this case you cannot put THE in front of the 'band' name because it just doesn't work...)
Saturday during the day I made more lentil, chick pea and lima bean soup... made choc chip honey cookies (with added extra maple syrup) and for the first time Caramalised Onion muffins. Now seriously, these muffins KICK! (recipe coming soon)
What makes a good album?
Had you listened to me and Mr Speed rambling on Sunday you would have heard our conversation regarding this...
I think that a good album has to have at least an ANTHEM and a CIRCUS track...
Speed says something to do with Ballads as well... look I don't think a Ballad is necessary, though if a ballad/anthem is combined, then they get uber-points...
The Clouds album PENNY CENTURY is one which has a song called Anthem anyway, but in reality, it ABSOLUTELY IS an anthem in itself... they don't have a circus track.
May I say Circus Track can refer to German Beer Drinking Sounding song as well... something that sounds carnival-ish... you know...??
I HATE the way commercial stations talk over the beginning or end of tracks when forward or back announcing. What snuuh is that?
Sharon and Adam's VOX POP
when saying (for example) 'THIS winter' are you referring to the winter just gone... or the winter to come...
I think (and Adam thinks) THIS winter refers to the winter (of our discontent) yet to come... as in "THIS WINTER at a cinema near you..."
another example: you can't really say 'this monday' and refer to yesterday... you would simply say 'yesterday' or 'this monday just gone' - you have to add something to the end of the sentence to have it make sense... and appear in the correct tense.
So between me and Adam we think Shaggy Shaz is delusional (hehe, sorry dahl) but what do YOU, the splendaro reader of this fine blog, think?
stuff and things.
the fringe program will be out on January 20. How exciting!
