I thought I'd better do something about the library fines (£30 last year). The problem is I use libraries all over and the books get forgotten about and left in piles of our books.
I decided to return a book by Martin Amis to Gypsyville library. I was going to jog there with my ipod but it needed charging so, naughtily, I borrowed Jack's. At the present time I usually listen to George Thorogood and The Destroyers, but I found that Jack is really onto the hard stuff, and a lot of ACDC is to be found on his ipod.
I like ACDC - they do what they do very well. Perfection in a heavy metal band. Jack has got the latest album of the rockers, who are now past the first flush of youth. I was watching their latest video on You Tube and I notice that, while they remain supremely energetic, the camera does not pan too closely to their faces lol
I challenge anyone not to feel very alive while running listening to 'Back in Black' on the ipod, though admittedly I was only on my way to pay a library fine, so hardly the epitomy of wild living LOL Scamp does this thing whereby he runs very closely and quickly past me so he is in front again and heralding the way.
Eleanor is now a published author - along with a lot of her classmates.
Mark made some soup from 'the River Cottage Cookbook', and I watched 'Duel'. The ipod had been returned to its rightful owner and Eleanor was guarding it on the rug, though I kept sneaking over to nick it, and, on occasions she turned to find me on the with the stolen ipod earpieces attached to my ears as if by magic LOL
Watched 'Duel' and enjoyed this. Lots of weird, alienating camera angles, obviously still influencing films now. I thought, this really, really good, and sure enough it was directed by Stephen Spielburg. I thought some of the music sounded familar (Jaws), and the film exploited the way cars and trucks can look like sinister people.
