    Limburger talks Music

    Funny how many people have been surprised to discover Nigeria Ebb aren't German... or even insist that they must be. Edit: or Nigerian even, thanks spell-checker

    Limburger talks Music

    OK so I was on the right lines... yes it may be an ersatz version of disco but I think that in its development to that it's changed enough to become a different thing - it sounds like a drramy chill-out thing to me and so it's doing something completely different to those realer disco tunes that...

    Choon of the Day

    An old one that bugs me like that - and this is really unfair - is Grace of God by Machine when it goes... "There but for the grace of God, there goes I" - you only need one of those "there"s in there!

    grahame greene

    I dunno if Patrick Hamilton's actual writing or even themes are that similar, but they exist in the same world... imagine one of the characters from Hangover Square staggering out of the pub and brushing past a shabby civil servant hurrying by with a disant and faintly worried expression, the...

    Not really... they're a lot more buttoned up, lonely and cold, and even the empty glamour of Mad Men is hugely preferable to the empty non-glamour of the world that most of GG's characters inhabit.

    Trump

    Now Trump is suing his niece and the NYT for $100m for stealing and smuggling his tax records or something. I don't really know the details to be honest but it looks as though it's another way for him to get back into the news, raise some money from a bunch of morons and basically provide a lot...

    Well one of the ways to lose the battle is to take it literally and think that you will be safe if you travel round the world and eat different food every day.

    I think one of the main battles in life is in trying to avoid that.

    Yeah very much so (re self sacrifice)... I seem to recall people doing difficult and nasty things that they don't want to do for some kind of vaguely envisaged greater good that they don't understand and which has no relation to what they do anyway. Unnecessarily ruining their lives basically...

    You're talking about the elephant's leg thing right? And I suppose that was what Yyaldrin meant too when he was talking about turkey contamination... I've never heard those specific claims before but I can't imagine it would come as a massive surprise to anyone if it turned out that those things...

    Choon of the Day

    I got in the car ten minutes after that discussion and inevitably it was the first song I heard... and it was on again on the way back. It's a nice enough tune I guess but there is a line (in fact many) in which he bravely reveals some of the horrendous situations that his disgustingly bad drug...

    Fast food

    Glad to hear we are both happy; had a kind of tapas thing with my friend from Germany, it featured monkfish cheeks, beef salad and poke - and also the lamb and almond thing. It was quite a good illustration of what we were talking about the other day cos he was properly tucking into the lamb...

    I went out for dinner tonight and by an incredible slice of fortune they actually had lamb on the menu.... lamb and almonds in fact, was really fucking great.
