    This month's title is a description of icebergs from a documentary about penguins, but I thought it sounded like something a rapper might say to describe his flow. All of the artwork is based on photographs I've taken. The front cover is Death Valley, taken in July 2002; the back cover was taken near the Uffington White Horse in 2004. The booklet interior was taken at Jaen Castle in Andalucia in December 2005. The tray liner was taken from a hot-air balloon over Wiltshire in 2002; the disc is the interior of a crop circle near Avebury in summer 2005.

    Okay, the first week of April is a bit late to be putting together a mixtape based on what I was listening to in February. But that's because I was travelling from mid February until more or less the last week of March. So this compilation is also a bit unusual, since I didn't add much new music. Or listen to as much music in general: I took my iPod, but iTunes says I listened to only 333 items…
