Want an iPhone for Christmas but can’t really afford the huge monthly charges? Well here is something that is a lot cheaper and yet still reassuringly overpriced for what it actually is while being strangely desirable despite everything.Â Easier to use than a real iPhone as well!

Jayne and I hit the town in Horsham tonight: an Italian meal, followed by a walk down to the Queens Head to see Covered playing.Â We did that because Damian (AKA Pootergeek) sings with the band.Â He keeps inviting me to come along to shows, but previously they have all been down on the coast.
This is Bob Dylan’s new one – a Christmas song.Â I hated it within two seconds, but then it started growing on me and by the end I thought it was brilliant and the best Christmas song since the Pogues.Â Â Is it Christmassy though?Â Sounds like the music from a Jewish wedding to me. Unfortunately […]

If Spotify didn’t exist then Spotinews wouldn’t exist.Â If Spotinews didn’t exist then I would probably never have heard of Shpongle nor got to hear their new album – Ineffable Mysteries from Shpongleland – and my life would be the poorer for it. It is like an ethnically-tinged version of Ozric Tentacles!

Got back from another quick trip to France tonight.Â There were a couple of meetings today, but the first was at 10:00 so I went out yesterday. Back in the old days I could have done it all in a day – when you could still fly from Gatwick to Orly and could turn up […]
Hat tip to Angry people in local papers You know what?Â I reckon even I could get a job as a police artist in Bolivia.Â Love the way they keep zooming in on the picture to try and make it scary… You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video
November 23rd, 2009 · Comments Off on Drums – an excuse for some gratuitous Shakira · Music
I will be amazed if I have not already mentioned here how partial I am to drums.Â Not so much drum solos (though I am quite fond of them) but bands who have several drummers or percussionists in their line-up.Â Imagine then, how chuffed I was seeing the Decemberists on Later last week with most […]

Sites like this are the icing on the cake of the internet, providing a respite from the doom and gloom elsewhere in my Google Reader feesd.Â Best followed in conjunction with Glum Councillors.
