Inevitably groggy for a monday after a trip home. Arrived at work to find the photocopier completely buggered, despite having had a major service only a couple of weeks ago, the pile of books to put away had become a mountain, and I was in the shit for failing to turn up for work on the Saturday, which I hadn't actually realised I was meant to be covering. Broken photocopier means lots of time spent dealing with students who need this thing copied Right Now and how dare you have a broken photocopier. Exhausted to home. Soup, some Dollhouse, and an attempt to write. Have a bad feeling about Saturday. Later to bed than intended, but happier too.

Album of the day was Cornelius - Fantasma. Lots of fun, very weird. Japanese and light on lyrics. I particularly like the mic check at the start and the song with the sampled speak and spell type thing saying 1-2-3-4-5-6-1-2-3-4-5-6-1-2-3-4-5-6-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8.

Cornelius - Fantasma

Play of the day was The Civilians - (I Am) Nobody's Lunch. Some lovely moments in this, I assume mock verbatim piece. People asked roughly What about 911, hey? That Guantanamo, well? and Is Tom Cruise gay? I think it loses a lot on the page and it seems to run short and aimless. But some cracking monologues and some nice connections.

For a man of such catholic tastes in music (or at least recommendations) as yourself - have you heard anything by Pete Atkin? I realise I'm pimping him rather too heavily at the moment, but the lyrics might appeal to you.

All the albums I;'ve heard are wonderful, but "Beware of the Beautiful Stranger" or the compilation "MIdnight Voices" would be good places to start...
