Roy Orbison. Effin pop genius. I thought he was an uncool twat in my yoof.

Also Georgie Fame - the same.

Georgie Fame is a twat. Nasty piece of work.

I know nothing about him as a person, just his music.

I've come to appreciate the work of Anthony Trollope. I used to dismiss it as Victorian soap opera, but have decided that while that may be true, Trollope provides an interesting window into British society of that era.

I can listen to all kinds of music, but I would call very little of it good. When I was younger it was easier to find good music. But now I get bothered by silly ideas like truth, which is usually the first thing killed when an artist opens their mouth. I guess it's not surprising then that I enjoy a lot more instrumental pieces than I used to.

Tony Abbott. I used to think he was a conservative arsewipe. Now I think he's a top bloke.

I was just thinking the same thing (about instrumentals vs lyrics) last night!

Except these guys. I love how he delivers matter of fact informational lyrics. It's like awesome public service announcements! :{D

You had to be there. Everything I heard before that was the equivalent of How Much Is That Doggy In The Window?

The Road to Little Dribbling: Bryson visits tea shops, coffee shops and various trails and gardens in England.

Visiting shops in Totnes in South Devon: "there was a little more in the way of New Age crystals and that kind of thing than I personally require. "
Then on next page: "there is a limit to how much I will pay for shampoo, even for someone who has given me children."

It's British, you see, but not in any Monty Python John Cleese ranting kind of way. Enjoy.

And Mantovani with his cascading violins. Ergh. Typewriter song?

The likes of Bill Hayley, Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis were already knocking out some decent rock 'n roll for the times, but no radio station in Europe played their stuff until the Beatles busted the broadcast studio doors off their hinges.

The most exciting on Finnish radio was maybe a once a day Shadows tune, Apache usually. I sampled my parents 10 LPs. The only playable thing was the Kingston Trio.
