blogs + films

Blogs, blogs, splendid blogs. There's a couple more to add to my nightly reading list!

Love Goes On! is brand new and automatically earns lots of love because it's named after one of my favourite Go-Betweens songs. Not only that, but the first post is about The Cat's Miaow. And it has the best design ever! If anybody wants to design my page as prettily as this blog, please feel free to because I am pretty damn inept at this new fandangled internet design business. Anyway, I know this blog is going to be great because Christos and I have Very High compatibility on, and that is always a sure sign of discerning musical tastes.

Too Much Apple Pie has everything you could ever wish for - posts about Pizzicato Five, themed topics and mp3s to match, videos, pop songs, and oh, so much more. I am going to feel so knowledgeable after reading these posts. Lovely!

Films? Oh yes. I watched The Diving Bell & The Butterfly on Tuesday night and cried and cried and cried. Please go to see this film - it's incredible! Then last night I watched Lou Reed: Rock n Roll Animal, which was screening at GoMA. All the hipsters who wear their Egg Records-sourced Velvet Underground & Nico t-shirts were notably absent. Even though I think Lou Reed is a bit of a twat, there's no denying he's written amazing songs throughout his career. I still think he's a twat, but I like him just that bit more now. Tonight? No films - I am ailing and need lots and lots of sleep. And tea.

Ahhh, thank you for your kind words!

The Diving Bell & The Butterfly has been put on my list of films to see. Thanks for the tip!

Hang on, you mean Carry On Up The Khyber's no longer number one in your list of must-see films, Spikey?! Sid James will be spinning in his grave!

Oh, you made a whole entry about my blog! I just saw that and I don't believe it! I can't tell you how chuffed I am :-) Thanks so much for your kind words. I'll definitely add your blog to my list as soon as I learn how to do see I am hopeless with blogs and a lousy writer...

And thank you so much for what you wrote about Atomic Beat Records! it means the world to us - email me your address and I'll send you a copy of our new single, ABR#3 "The Pains of Being Pure at Heart" xxxx

Oh, please keep up the blogs! And I've already bought the Pains/Parallelograms split from you, so I'm eagerly awaiting its arrival in the mail sometime soon :) Really excited about the rest of the releases!
