    Better to do that now, rather than on the night! Obviously when I said trumpet - that was just metaphorical ... a cymbal.

    (now I *will* get me coat)

    @pcstru Oh very clever
    I'll have you drummed out of edugeek!

    (as for you, @sonofsanta - can't see anything vaguely gutterish about it - unless of course you are sniggering at the word "blow" - and you are how old??? )

    I'm constantly looking for new music to add to the ol' iPhone. I find most "new" stuff through TV adverts, films and computer games these days. The Beeb was running an ad with a Richard Hawley track - "There's a Storm Comin'" a month or so back, excellent track! Also just added The Cure's "Lovesong" because it came up as a RockSmith DLC track! Both Rod Stewart and Michael Buble's new tracks were featured on BBC Breakfast last week and quickly added to iTunes.

    Ray Charles - "Leave My Woman Alone"
    INXS - "Devil Inside"
    and Bon Jovi's new album

    have all been added as well.

    Drummed out! Did the joke fall flat? Perhaps I will just give it a rest ... not *right* now but maybe in a minuet.

    I can just make a double entendre out of anything. And as a man, no matter how old I actually am, my mind will forever be that of a 13 year old boy.

    Groan. Too many puns to Handel for one morning. Feeling a bit crotchety.

    OK - I will minim-ise my input from now on. Bach to work!

    I'll try to find a Liszt of puns, but I'm too Bizet at the moment.

    C-C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER!



    I'm mostly listening to these [That's just one album... the full list if on the right. Stupid Bandcamp layout.]

    Plus, the OST for Panty and Stocking [IT'S A CARTOON!] and the Song of Storms dubstep remix.


    I have weird taste in music.

    I went to the LG Arena on Saturday with the OH who has always wanted to see Il Divo and, whilst I was brought up with classical music, I guess I saw these as a bit girly .. a bit like going to see JLS. Boy was I surprised. The power and sound generated by those four voices was phenomenal. They also had Katherine Jenkins who combined her voice seamlessly with theirs (as well as providing some top quality eye candy). 11,000 people packed the place and it was an awesome evening, whist not really new music to me, it was certainly new in terms of seeing them live. Anyone who likes their sounds strong and powerful could do a lot worse.

    Just some randomness from my current playlist.

    From my favourite band The Mountain Goats.
    This is the first Mountain Goats song I heard. Lions Teeth - The mountain goats - YouTube

    Casiotone for the Painfully Alone's New Year's Kiss, a song about the morning after the night before. Etiquette is a superb album.

    The multi-talented Andrew Bird's Imitosis
    Andrew Bird - "Imitosis" - YouTube

    Spoon's Lines in the Suit
    http://youtu.be/8ByIG7CBhog

    Good classic rock - Dancing with St Peter by $ign of Four

    Tom Waits is a bit angry in Make It Rain

    'Weird' here having the meaning of 'awesome'.

    Some of the things I've found/been listening to lately:

    Ievan Polka - Loituma (a Finnish folk song made somewhat Internet-famous by a spinning leek)
    The whole OST for Neon Genesis Evangelion, but specifically the opening theme and this.
    The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya themes and associated songs.
    Pretty much anything by 'Weird Al' Yankovic (this one is particularly appropriate!)
