    Gosh, it's all been happening with you! Congratulations on your new job and therefore home :) Looking forward to seeing what musical adventures you'll be having down Birmingham way! And you've been on your travels and learnt the art of cocktail making! Brilliant :) We've got a cocktail cabinet thing going on and often make Mojitos or whatever concoction comes to hand. Bonus points for inclusion of Blue Curacao...lol So when are you off down south? Will you be back up to see friends, etc. on occasion? :)

    No idea what SOAP and REST are but i suspect not as simple as i'd hope! hee hee How did it all go? Finished? I like the Calvin & Hobbes thing very much - tis a summary for my academic life! I do know better by now but i still can't help myself from leaving it all last minute! hee hee I can see why that gig looks interesting at the Brudenell. I've not heard of a single act and maybe if you haven't heard of them all too, it may lead to some pleasant new discoveries! We're off to Emiliana Torrini on Thursday and I'm really looking forward to it :) Michael is a member of that "Thoughtful..." group, think he said once that they take themselves all a bit too seriously so I've not bothered with it myself. Perhaps we should make a rival, easier going one!

    How's the studying, etc going? :) Had a good night last night at the Polish Club in Bradford at a "No Hands" night. Went because t'other half was doing a bit of DJing at the more mellow downstairs area and lots of people where there so it made for a chatty evening :) Off to that barbecue at some point this afternoon (weather looks a bit dodgy though!) and possibly off to a "Zine" all day thing at the 1in12 club tomorrow - sort of magaziney crafty day. Not been to Beehive for yonks either. I like the beer and upstairs but care not for the cellar/basement area which is a shame as most of their "nights" are down there! :)

    I'll let the cat thing slide... http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2009/jun/16/psychologist-test-outsmarts-cats Yeah familiar with the Ellington but not overly, thanks for the heads up to dig it out again. One can never hear too much Ellington you know. "If I have any beliefs about immortality, it is that certain dogs I have known will go to heaven, and very, very few persons....and no cats" -James Thurber Alright I added the thing about cats.

    Hiya, I see you're off to that "Bollocks to Poverty" thingmajig? On here it's listed as next weekend however I do believe that it's actually tomorrow. I've altered the date on the listing on here accordingly. If you're on that Facebook thing here is the link to the event there: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?ref=logo#/event.php?eid=104953649391&ref=ts We can't go to it if it's actually tomorrow as we've been promised to a mate's birthday barbecue in sunny erm, Huddersfield! :)

    We got more in common than music. Hello from the West Coast of Canada. Found you through Top Indian Musicians..Cliff Richard in Lucknow !! I can dine out on that tidbit for a week.

    Ah hurrah for holidays - for giving something to look forward to when rest of life drudgery can get you down! hee hee As for veganism - i do understand the myriad of reasons why it's a good idea but, yes, the call of cheese, cream, eggs, and other dairy products are just too strong and soy alternatives (which i have tried various of) just don't cut it! So i could be a veggie at a push (and subsist on cheese and mushroom for meat substitutes!), but i'll have to leave anything more extreme to the really committed people! The vegan friends we mealed with recently have a vegan 4 year old has been raised always that way. He says when he's 18, he's going to have a pint of beer and some milk - bless him! We're baby sitting him (for the first time!) soon and it's tempting to feed him cheese to see what happens! hee hee nah, won't do that, but it is tempting! :) Odd on job front - they really need to get their finger out to you. Marvellous discipline on not asking when you could have.

    oh are you a vegan too? the meal was interesting (although I wasn't entirely convinced the desserts were vegan but the birthday vegan didn't question them so....lol). We're off out for another meal with (i think) a vegetarian couple who may be attempting but failing veganism so that could be fun too! Think that might end up a curry though! Could be good, love okra, spinach, etc :) Anyhow, your interview does sound a bit odd. Is this a case of "no news is good news"? Never sure what that phrase means! Fingers Xed for the result you want. The worst for time taken to recruit are universities. They take *forever*. I've seen it with Newcastle as well as Bradford, so be warned if you apply to a uni! lol Anyhow, the other half is in the job market at the moment so if you know anyone looking for web designers around Yorksher, let me know! ;) cheers

    Oh how is it/ did it go? A presentation? Ugh! Still, if you want it badly enough, inspiration will come! As for your tea, should definitely reward self before coming back up :) We're off to a vegan's birthday meal at a vegetarian restaurant tonight. Should be interesting, having never been to a veggie restaurant before. Hoping we can have cheese things even though she's a vegan...hee hee

    So, are you a step closer to returning to the home land? :) Apologies for slurring Birmingham with southern tag. Anywhere south of Manchester is south to me! hee hee

    I agree with your idea of voluntary subscription. I can't use Last.fm anymore because I hate that someone imposes me to pay for a service that used to be free for years. Above all Last.fm was a great idea with this community of people sharing what they like to listen.But CBS came and we see the result.I appreciate you to join us at Maceo Parker' group. I remind you the link : http://www.last.fm/group/Maceo+Parker?setlang=en See you there soon !!! Best regards.

    That Maceo Park gig sounded like an excellent night. As you said, really shows when an act is going "through the motions" when performing and that age is now excuse either. Rather like the Stones really, although some people would rather they gave it up and put it away now...lol Hope you have a good gig tonight too :) We're considering travelling afield to exotic destinations like Whitehaven and erm, Nelson soon in search of gigs. Will make a change from Leeds if we get there. So what is the lure of Birmingham? I've never been myself although I was told if someone says to you "Kipper Tie", they are not commenting on your outdated attire, merely asking if you'd like a brew! Marvellous! hee hee anyhow, what cons are there to not going to Birmingham? I've also heard it's in that "South" area! hee hee :)

    Afternoon, what's new with you? I see you've been on the spoken word? Unless Tolkien is an underground act that has passed me by so far...hee hee

    If there are still tickets, then it sounds like you should reward your hard work over the rest of the weekend and go! You'll only kick yourself if you don't go. Had a similar dilemma last night at 5.15pm was consider dashing from Bradford and Leeds over to York on the off chance of getting some tickets at the door to see Graham Coxon. We didn't the end as there was too much of a rush as well as a risk of not getting in but for a brief while we were all excited about going. So go! :)

    Ah I thought it might have been you but didn't really want to shout "Oi, Robhogg!" randomly in a queue of people! hee hee We revisited the HT to see The Voluntary Butler Scheme and very good he was too. It's the 4th time we've seem him/them and it was the second best of the viewings in my opinion. The acoustics in the HT are certainly interesting. The husband saw Jens Lekman in there last year (I think) where he played on the organ (in addition to other instruments) and he said it was amazing. Acoustics really lent to his music, etc.

Sobre mim

I am a 40-something hairy geek. Originally from Leicester, I've lived for most of the last 15 years in Leeds, West Yorkshire. I've had a few changes of employment status over the last couple of years, and am now working as a Digital Librarian for York St. John University. My tastes in music, food and reading matter are varied and diverse (including Natacha Atlas, Iain M. Banks, Beethoven, Bhel Puri, Elizabeth Gaskell, Halva, Christy Moore, Pink Floyd, George Orwell, Egremont Russets and Nitin Sawhney).

I am an internationalist, socialist and opposed to war. I am also a GNU/Linux user and committed to the free software movement. All hail the great Penguin.

Reading

Recently finished: Our Kind of Traitor by John Le Carré. A reasonably good read, focusing on international organised crime. It has the usual hallmarks of a Carré novel, but felt formulaic - not as good as other recent work, such as The Constant Gardener.
Currently Reading: Surface Detail by Iain M. Banks. Dealing with the relationship between the real, and the variety of virtual "afterlives" created by high-tech civilisations. Quite sprawling, and not sure how it's going to turn out.
