Mt Royal | Missing RewardI’m kinda (very) against music consumption being an endless, habitual thing where you just skim over songs and soundwaves through RSS feeds and Soundcloud favourites. Music discovery has become an exercise in posting, applauding first and criticising later. These past few weeks, every new track has been a “THIS EXISTS” event rather than some momentary pause for thought. …
As mentioned in my last post, I am taking a break for a few days.
Will you miss me?
I will not be gone for long – just a week or so. I have decided I need to rest my weary head and recharge my batteries.
Later, pop fans.
(All I really need is for a beautiful girl from Baltimore to fly over and give me a kiss. And of course, I wouldn’t settle for just one.)
On the Fantastic hifi today:
Get Happy – Elvis Costello and the Attractions
Allow me to be slightly negative – not like dear old Nelson who sometimes seems to be in a continuous condition of pessimism where every new disappointing thing that comes along ultimately affords him a kind of grim satisfaction – but somewhat condescending to my environment for a moment.
Oh, how I love England! – all the mud and morons and miserable weather (that’s me being slightly ironic); but sometimes I wish I could just throw all of my and Audrey’s belongings into a big suitcase and bugger off to somewhere more interesting and salubrious, like, for instance, Lyon or Baltimore or even Bruges – for a break. You know . . . sort of . . . a – holiday!
I need a holiday; or at the very least a diverting geographical experience - something new, to ‘see
how the other half live’ as my dear old mum would put it.
