Death Take Your Fiddle

When making weekend plans with a classmate of Nefarious’s, they mentioned they were moving today. The good news is that they’re our new next door neighbors! In other five year old news we got some new books as a reward for her improvements in reading skill — The Woman Who Married a Bear was a big hit, and definitely a book I’d recommend for kids of her age or a little older. Tomorrow I think we’re off to see how the animals at the zoo are preparing for winter…

I mentioned in the previous entry how much I like Talk Talk‘s Spirit of Eden and Laughing Stock, the so-called heroin albums, but I think that my current favorite album and top album of 2008 by a long shot has to be Spiritualized‘s Songs in A&E, which I’m sure has plenty of morphine and opiates influencing it as well… I hate to say it, because obviously heroin does so much damage to people’s lives, but in terms of its musical influence it’s easily my “favorite drug“. As to my personal preference? “No comment!”

    If it is your drug of choice for musical influence you really should pick up John Frusciante’s “Niandra Lades and Usually Just a T-Shirt”. My favorite album of my whole life – from day one. Simply amazing!

    I thought they were new tattoos too- aren’t they? I thought it went with the “Don’t Panic” philosophy- by having fun with life.

    I love Songs in A&E. Of course I love everything Spiritualized has put out. I actually hadn’t heard the new album until I saw them play live and I was totally blown away.
