I'm in a bad mood (parp parp parp), I'm feeling low, ow ow ow...



Happiness is finding that a double album of The Lighthouse Keepers is available on e-music.

Sadness is discovering this immediately after using up all my downloads for the month.

They are the soundtrack for a huge bittersweet and multi-coloured chunk of my young adult years. I managed to download Springtime and Bad Mood, that'll have to do for now. I often play them on vinyl anyway, but the thought of carrying them around on my ipod is just too delicious for words.

The shops are shut I have no money
The weather outside is far too sunny

Fignatz, that is a beautiful link. They are the sort of books that used to come out of the Graphic Investigation Workshop when students were allowed to spend proper time with their heads and the letterpress... I like the amount of space she inserted between each word (an en space rather than a thick space) -- it allows each word to have its own presence.

Zarquon: Hallelulah!

I feel bad, I feel terrible
How I wish for something
That's bearable.

Such a perfect song for jaunty bike riding.
