1 - Married again
2 - Had fab time in Las Vegas (aka American Blackpool)
3 - Had a fab time in Honolulu (aka American Llandudno/Isle of Man)
4 - Had an uncomfortable time on a plane (15 hrs like a spooning sardine at 40000 ft). If ever the CIA or NSA or whoever are looking for a new way to extract confessions out of people, may I suggest a 15 hour flight on a United Airlines plane from Honolulu to Heathrow via Los Angeles. After about 3 hours I was willing to confess to anything.
5 - Don't want to go to work.

Anyone fancying writing an entry for any of the albums above, please let me know before the publication date. Alternatively, if you've never heard the music and would like to have a stab at writing a commentary on the music based on a first time listen let me know and I'll get the music to you. It is a surprisingly rewarding experience.

7 - My recent journeys taught me that few people know how to make a decent cup of tea which reminded me of this post from yesteryear.

Will there be any John Taverner (either)in your music list? Otherwise, apart from Quo (any), DC5, The Rolling Stones and the Kinks (the early stuff) I think you'll have to count me out! Lol

I don't have any Taverner, I have some Byrd and some Monteverdi but I'm not including classical if I can help it. Quo, no. DC5? Isn't that a plane? Rolling Stones - I have two best of albums but they won't appear until about 2017 at the rate I'm going through my collection and it's a similar story for the Kinks, but they're due when I get to F. Which should be about the end of next year....

Woo on wedding.
I'd like a stab at a review but none of those stand out to me, I'll wait until something does :D

Crikey, better get my behind in gear for tomorrow.

I can also do Chris Isaak and JMJ's Chronologie, if you can stand any more!

Well I do have something specific to say about Mr Isaak being one of the most influential artists on my life so instead can I tempt you with one of the various artist compilations?

I am happy for you to do Jean Michel Jarre's Chronologie though :-)

I don't have any of the compilations, but will do Chronologie :-)

I can't seem to add categories on the site. What am I missing?

Not sure why. You have the same admin rights as I do. Ah well, I've added them for you. If that happens again let me know and I'll check with Wordpress.

Thanks once again, you're far too modest and a bloody good writer you know. Oh and I can always supply the music if you're short of it via Dropbox. :-)

Ah, well you're an EXCEPTIONAL writer! And great poetry too :-)

I just tend to write what comes into my head... which is probably obvious.

Am I right in thinking Chronologie is [269]? There seems to be a day gap between that and Hawkwind.

Ah! Well spotted! This is what happens when you write things jet lagged >Eyes roll<

I'm sure there was a reason, but yes, it should be for today. I'll change it, that way it's kind of a penance for me being a shit editor.
