    You're in Berlin aren't you? There's probably a Reichian scene there though it'd be German language so I wouldn't have much access to it. When I was there, I travelled out to meet a bloke called Bernd Senf who's a Reichian therapist, now retired. He's written about economics from a Reichian perspective.

    Utitlite sounds like the shit prototype for the satellite.

    Dont really spend any money on myself. Couple of hundred a year on bike maintenance. A little bit on music and music gear when needed, studio rent, mortgage. Most disposable income goes on children.

    Fucking drowning in books. It's a pathology. One day a therapist will tell me to burn them.

    Me neither, that's why it's pathological.

    When I went on holiday for a month last year one great aspect of that was not having any books looming over me.

    After the non-negotiable stuff, most of my disposable income goes on food and drink, though way less on both than 5 or 10 years ago - eating out became a reflex rather than a real pleasure in my last few years in London, and likewise drinking 4 or 5 pints is much less of a reflex than it was. Taking up that slack have been the costs of a therapy course, like Danny - the course itself, personal therapy, and rail costs cos the course is in London and I'm not.

    Way less spent these days on non-perishable physical stuff - clothes twice a year in the sales, gigs and other arts entertainments occasionally...it doesn't add up to much.

    I do buy the odd book and fanzine and vintage mouldering radical publication.

    Musicwise I probably spend more on bandcamp than vinyl these days. Cheap CDs from charity shops and ebay also. I gave up buying new vinyl last year.

    I don't buy a lot of clothes or own a car.

    I like the way Cafe Oto has its own place on Eden's budget.

    £10 a month + tickets + Kernel Pale Ales - it all adds up, Craner!
