A trip to visit somebody in head office this afternoon gave me a chance to catch up on some homework.  It is a 30 to 45-minute drive each way and no chance of distractions – I do not have a company mobile phone and certainly no hands-free kit so no chance of phone calls.

It gave me chance to play Death Magnetic on the car’s CD player and get more familiar with it.  Danivon reminded me yesterday that it is only two weeks until we go to see Metallica at the O2 so I felt I should get up to speed with the newer stuff.

It also had the added benefit of helping me to forget that I was driving a Nissan Note: easily the worst pool/hire car I have had so far.  It really does not feel stable at speed or in corners.

    So, do you have your homework ready? 3000 words on “Does Death Magnetic represent a renewed and invigorated Metallica, or is it merely a laboured attempt to recreate a vanished past?” on my desk by Friday, wasn’t it?

      I’ll copy and paste something from Wikipedia – that’s how homework works now isn’t it?

      How else can I stretch “bloody good” out to 3000 words? Actually I appear to be the only person who actually liked St Anger so what do I know anyway?
