It's good to see we have the leadership we need to deal with these vital issues in these troubled times.

According to Sunday’s Observer, Nick Cave’s rather wonderful ‘Into My Arms’ is now popular as funeral music, with the ‘My’ in the title changed to ‘Your.’

Great song, but would you want to dedicate a song with the line “I don‘t believe in an interventionist God/ But looking at you I wonder if that‘s true.” to someone who’s just been struck down dead??

Watched an episode of The Wire, then a Deadwood the other morning. The following quotes stood out :

“Witnessing the events of late in the east, oughten any depositer pause and consider before trusting his savings to a bank? ”
Alma Garret, Deadwood

“You know what the trouble is? We used to make shit in this country. Build shit. Now we just put our hands in the next guys pocket.”
Frank Sobotka, The Wire

Title TBC

19 hours writing each of the last 2 weeks. After The September Splurge of writing for Rise and Red Planet deadlines, I’m starting the next draft of Technicolor for Metlab. I say starting, but the trouble is, no deadline pressure = no urgency. I kinda treading the fine line between research and planning, and just plain phaffing* about. Also, trying to resist the siren call Season’s 2 of Dexter and The Wire. Not always succeeding. Damn those are good shows!

I’m sure y’all already know about the books by Russell T Davis and Adrian Mead? Well, okay then. No need to be like that. I was Just checking. Jesus!

Whatever. **

* or is it faffing??
** sorry, I didn’t mean it. Please come back. You know I still love you.
