Heya Mate!

I can't believe your blog is still mushhy green colour! Eugh!

Am busy reading downwards to see what you've been up to. Like the look of yr "portal" (ooer!)

Back soon!

Hello Both.

Thanks for the link, 3d - lots of Lips goodness! They would make me feel in love, even if I wasn't!

And good to hear from you, Mr Saturnyne. Yep, the page is still an eye-aching mushy green, but it acts as a deterent to keep unwanteds away from the blog!

Incidentally, just last night I worked out (after 6 years) how to change the brightness & colour saturation on my graphics card. The display has always been incredibly, no matter what I do to the monitor. And, blimey, I've now discovered that it is difficult sitting in front of the green-as-it-should-be-seen for a long time...

I haven't heard the whole album yet but from the adverts even I like it. I, who generally regard the Flaming Lips as a bad Tears for Fears cover band...

Mind you I went to see Mogwai er in the last two months - after not really loving the albums and was utterly blown away and thought they were fab.

Plus I wasn't really using the extremes of my hearing anyway......

Yeah, I've heard that Mogwai are stunning live. And I can imagine the massive shifts in the power of their soundscapes. Or something.

Talking of soundscapes, who I most want to see, however, is "Sigur Rós (I know that your bloke would agree with me).

Takk is a stunning album, and especially now that the BBC have been reminding me of it every few days with the music in their adverts for Planet Earth, I just can't get it out of my head.

And now that I've got broadband I can download all of the free stuff off their website... bliss.

I'm too ignorant of all things to know anything like thar, I'm afraid.
