by popular demand, it's time for the return of the coffee table of shame.
and o.c.d-ly arranged on it this week are...
hmmm... nice choice.
if you know me you'll know that i frown upon bad language more than i frown normally.
i do however like bad language when it's used unexpectedly or inappropriately.
i don't like violence in films ( grrr ! to gangs of new york, there will be blood )
but i do like it when it's kind of silly cartoon violence as in say, robocop, predator etc.
kick-ass ticks all boxes for me. it's silly, stupid, funny, violent and potty-mouthed.
( a bit like my sisters-in-law )
cd: bossa nova 1991 shibuya scene retrospective
you know i'm a big fan of the japanese music scene, especially bands like
pizzicato 5 and fantastic plastic machine... bands who incorporate a bit of
bossa nova... a bit of lounge or ska into their music.
i bought this double cd from hmv in shibuya last year. it's kind of a custom in japan to give away little presents and when i bought this, the girl behind the counter gave me a free
hand towel as a present !
er... the music is great anyway
book: labels by louis de bernieres
what a cracking little book.
no lie i've bought this about 5 times. it's a great little book to give away as a gift.
i'd say it's a bedtime book. if you go to bed with a hot chocolate ( or a flat white in my case )
and want to read for 30 minutes, this is perfect.
it's also ideal for a bus journey. i reckon from whitfield towers to st paul's cathedral on a
busy 17, it will just about do the job.
an interesting short story... i'll say no more.
until next week then.
oh, any recommendations for me ?
