Over one-hundred followers? Well, I'm flattered!

New format. How about a photograph and what I'm listening to, eh? Or why not listen to the song while reading the following text or admiring the photograph?

So- Here's what I'm listening to:

They're a band from Manchester, formed by Howard Devoto of 'Buzzcocks' fame, straight after the frankly seminal 'Spiral Scratch EP'. If you don't like this then I don't know what you possibly COULD like. But then again everyone's interests are their own and as such the best in the world, no? Totally egocentric, we are, as humans.

And for those of you that, perhaps, genuinely like my pictures, well, here, have one to industriously pore over!


This is a Berlin train station. We went in the winter, and we were ill for two of the three days that we were there, violently ill.But on the one day that I and my girlfriend were fine, we took some nice photos. I didn't like Berlin though. It still, to me, seems to be suffering a post war austerity, and the majority of the nice things there were blown up in world war two. There's not too much to see of great beauty. It's mostly horrible late twetieth century architecture. The people there are often rude, too, and that's saying something from someone half British half French. Maybe it's just their way of life. maybe I'm overcritical. I'm not fussed either way.

  7. if you were ill 2 of 3 days you spent in Berlin, you probably didn't have much time to look around the places in the city? Winter might also affect the impression.

    I've been to Berlin only once though.

  9. Lol @ Berlin still feeling the effects of World War II.

    Sad, but true I guess. Also, I've heard the same as you about the rudeness of Berliners.

  10. I only follow blogs that are truly interesting to me. And I think if you keep up the good work, you will have 1000 followers in no time!

    I didn't know that Howard Devoto had another project going! Serves me right for living in the jungle for so long LOL...

    I've been to Berlin and you are absolutely right...
