Personally, I’m rather keen on the Cinematic Orchestra DVD Live at The Royal Albert Hall…me want it NOW.
Hey, I’ve got groaning shelves of vinyl – All jazz, soul-jazz, soul, latin and a smattering of funk as well as piles of leftfield stuff (now referred to as ‘lounge’). A whole dedicated room no less, shipped ’em all over from the UK…that was a scary wait.
Have you tried the vinyl shop on Lygon St, East Brunswick? Here’s a link…http://www.arkitektrecords.com/
davy: welcome aboard!
omg, just the thought of yr vinyl stash is amazing! haven’t been to the vinyl place on lygon – thx for the tip!
I’m a Murakami fan and am eagerly awaiting this too!!
1Q84 – Haruki Murakami (English translation). Spotted the Japanese version at the Kinokuniya where I live and wished I could read Japanese. Always wondered is some of the magic is lost in translation.
bookjunkie: I guess it depends on the translator…a few pals of mine prefer some Murukami releases to others, depending on who the translator was. For me? I hear 1Q84 is a massive success, and I just want to read it already! Apparenly it won’t hit Australia til at least 2011 😦 Do you blog? Send me a link if you do ?
My favourite Murakami books as the Wind up Bird Chronicle and Kafka on the Shore. I like Jay Rubin’s translations. I just started blogging as a place to store my memories and vent…
bookjunkie: I don’t really have a favourite – I love them all! Enjoyed your blog, and will certainly be back to read some more…
I gave my copy of City Of Glass to Rowena Robertson of POSTER magazine.
If you can track her down, I know she would happily pass it on to you. tell her Helena sent you.
Ann O’Dyne: You’re so lovely! Thank you.
Hi Ann (and Vetti) – Rowena here. The book was actually City of Quartz by Mike Davis (about LA), not City of Glass by Douglas Coupland. I’m in LA now and I constantly think back to the ideas in the book as I wander around the city, so thank you Ann.
Rowena: Hiya! Just goes to show how friendly the internets can be…all the best for your travels, will certainly swing by your blog. Cheers, Vetti
well I am obviously in The City Of Ditz.
it’s Old Age. peace and love though.
Ann O’Dyne: As long as you’re happy, it’s a good thing 🙂
