Working my way back to you babe

Having decided to begin blogging again, I find myself with nothing much of interest to say.

I am back at work after a period of paternal leave due to the birth of my son which went well. He is a big fat bouncing baby, of 3 months age now and is happily learning to aim his pee in unusual directions.

I read a lot of books while I was off - couple of Houellebecqs, Palahniuks, Amsterdam by McEwan, Arthur and George by Julian Sands and the Dawkins. Enjoyed each and every one and could happily never put a finger on a PC keyboard again if left with a stack of similar books. Still trying to track down Cohen's What's Left - not easy to do here in Belgium for some reason - I made a pledge to keep off the Amazon habit for as long as I can, but I can feel my resolve weakening already.

Music has been the Long Blondes, Skream, Ghostface Killah, the Jarvis CD, and of course the new Fall album. Over Xmas, I was given CDs by Amy Winehouse, Gnarls Barkley and The Raconteurs and, to my surprise, found myself loving them all. It is a great time for those of us that like a bit of indie and the fringes of popular music. Still undecided on Isobell Campbell's folk stuff...

Lastly, here is a great link to a great rant that I agree with, and let's face it, you can't say fairer than that.
