- You’ve Got To Laugh – Nik Kershaw. Arrived this week from Short House Records and in my CD player a lot since then. Includes a warning that it may include traces of irony. Traces? Some might say that alone is ironic. The tunes could be mistaken for pop. The lyrics are a little more complex than that.
- The West Wing (Season 1). If there is one show I find my way back to over and over it’s the West Wing.
- Bat Out of Hell 2 – Meat Loaf. Because Objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are.
- The Very Best of Incantation. I’m not a big listener to pan pipe music but Incantation are far too good to pigeonhole and ignore.
- Mr Benn. It was research for something I was writing, honest.
- The Way It Is – Bruce Hornsby and the Range. Have you noticed I like my lyrics complicated yet?
- Set Me Free – Marion Raven. Nik’s knocked Marion out of my CD player but she’ll be back soon I’m sure.
- Battle Star Galactica (Season 2). The only reason I’m not on The West Wing’s second season. Really enjoying this despite still thinking they should have kept the original shows theme.
- A Cock and Bull Story. Not sure what to make of this. It was either brilliant or utter rubbish. I think I’ll lean towards the first of the two.
- Local Hero Music by Mark Knopfler.
- The Deceivers: Allied Military Deception in the Second World War â€“ Thaddeus Holt. A heavy weight and
slightlyvery dull history book but between the bickering over who commanded what when it does actually include some interesting history.
- Sharpe’s Escape by Bernard Cornwell. I’ve barely started this yet because The Deceivers is taking a lot longer to read than I expected.
- Carrotblanca â€“ Bugs Bunny and Friends do Casablanca. Somehow it works. Don’t ask me how. It would be quicker to just watch it for yourself and see.
So what are you listening to / reading / watching at the moment?
