I'm still enjoying my MP3 player, especially during times at work when I'm stuck with piles of paperwork. I set it to play at random, and I decided to keep track of what it played, mostly out of curiousity. This is a list of the first 100 or so songs the player gave me, in order, made during the last couple of months... if I had a radio program it would closely resemble this, without format and with plenty of odd song juxtapositions.

What a great picture!

I made a comment on your blog, hit the "send" button a tad too many times when I get getting a screen telling me "you can't get there from here", and ended up repeating myself five-fold. I trashed all those identical comments, and added one more, and who knows it if came through, so... it's here also:

I won't go quite as far as saying "Damien is Lord" but I do have to say that is one snappy photo job! Bush as Keef! And with such a smug look on his face! What a masterstroke of genius!! Thankyouthankyouthankyou!!!!

Thanks! I like all kinds of stuff as long as it isn't modern "country" music or "rap".

Aren't the Bonzos wonderful? "Bad Blood", "Canyons Of Your Mind" (the worse guitar solo of all time!) and "My Pink Half Of The Drainpipe" are probably my favorites. "Slater's Parrot" and "King Of Scurf" are right up there. Timeless classics!!
