back to work...

Well, work has definitely jumped up and bitten me! It's been a very busy few days, with little space to do much else (especially since Finchley Road's sprung a leak and it's taking twice as long to get in and home... )

Still, I've a day off to recover, then back to work on Sunday(!) While I have a little time to relax, I might enjoy Paul Anka's new CD - "Rock Swings". Much like the slightly more irreverent Richard Cheese (not to mention Mike Flowers ... no, please don't mention him) some of the finest moments in rock and pop have been given the full jazz swing treatment. Favourites include Jump (1.4MB MP3) and Eye Of The Tiger (see the radioblog for a preview).

I can't believe it's nearly a year since John Peel died. Radio 1 are having a special tribute day on Thursday. Now that's going to be a busy one! In the meantime, here's an amusing page about the John Peel Sweet Eating Game.

Annoyingly, there were some other thoughts I've been having. Carrying a whole collection of technology around with me day by day, you'd think I'd be able to write things down!

Radiowise, I'd like to recommend Another Case Of Milton Jones on Radio 4 at half-past six on a Thursday evening.

Links of the day:

  • www.funbureau.com : where do all the socks go? (thanks, Annie!)
  • www.aquarterof.co.uk : sweeties on the internet, yay! It doesn't quite have the same atmosphere as a real sweetshop, though...
  • www.bleacheatingfreaks.com/contest/bricolage3 : It's amazing how much damage you can do with office equipment. Now I wouldn't consider any of these...
  • www.britblog.com : I've just added this blog to this directory of British Blogs. I daresay it's far from comprehensive, but there are a few interesting blogs there...
