I spent the day in historic Clerkenwell today. Our company has another office there and I have to pay the odd visit there. In theory it should be easy to get to, as its near Farringdon station which is on the Thameslink route, so I can get one train all the way through from Three […]

New music

Well… not all of it new. At lunchtime today I took a bus ride to the new Virgin Megastore, which has taken over the old Tower Records shop at Piccadilly Circus. The idea was to pick up a DVD-Audio disc to see if it makes a difference, so something new would not do the trick. […]
