    Is there anybody who likes jazz?

    I quiet like Jazz, 'though it lacks the depth, integrity, imagination or longevity of a great Funky House/Grime/Footwork/Bangbot/Streetsnap/Glitch Folk tune.

    what are you reading now?

    Just finished Simenon's The Hitchhiker (also known as Red Lights) - brilliant short road trip to hell in mid-50 America courtesy of a squabbling couple & a Madison Ave man who thinks drink will alleviate his woes but what awaits is tragedy. All described by Simenon's pinpoint, razor-sharp prose...

    Watched a couple of episodes...not exactly hooked. That assassin dressed like a retired football hooligan must be mind-controlled, he acts like such a dope. Might catch up with it though...something to watch at Work.

    Don Quixote - another epic that I've actually finished, prompted by the new translation that came out a few years back. You lot are making me feel like one of those studious Readers of Epics, which I certainly am not. I'll drop a book at the blink of an eye, even one I'm enjoying, usually...

    Books on Music

    Ghosted via interviews, as I recall, but worthwhile for the full-on dark prince persona. Straight Life on Art Pepper is good although I wouldn't expect many here to be into that kind of Art. Richard Meltzer's A Whore Just Like The Rest is a favourite of mine. David Byrne's How Music Works...

    [fanzine] Turbulent Times #9 published

    Enjoying it, John. Currently making my own, but it'll be visuals only. I don't know if that qualifies as a 'Zine, but I prefer to be pretentious and call it an Art Book. ;)

    what art is, fundamentally

    Art's that thing people make or do which may be representational of an object/person or concept/emotion and is in the eye of the beholder as much as the creator but totally immersive for the maker, yes, if not the viewer. Had a brief discussion about this the other night when in my infinite...

    crime fiction

    David Goodis. Just picked up Somebody's Done For for a quid. It's the only one I haven't read, I think. Great writer.

    Skip the descriptions of every whale in the ocean and your larfing. As Tea says, believe the hype.

    Classic Films on Youtube

    Presume you mean The Tenant? I highly recommend the novel it came from, by Roland Topor.

    what are you reading now?

    Burroughsian in the sense that as a multi-dimensional author who constantly fed his own life experience and world view into even the most fantastical scenarios it's an early chapter in a life that formed the whole ever-evolving Book of Burroughs. Probably.

    Online Relationships

    I've met a few good people through online relationships. Even ended up with my current job through one. On the whole it's easier (for most people) to create a 'cool' persona via written word and inevitably they are different in the flesh...they are, surprisingly, human, with all that that entails.
