(You'll have to get Invisible Hits for the yummy picture of Matthew Seligman though, or the Soft Boys box set!) Morrissey - it turns out that I do have the Sequel sampler - it still had the wrapping on. Um. 3.29. Bargain. Tracks selected by Robyn it says. I think I must have forgotten about it because I've got all the tracks anyway (apart from Statue). I agree that the cover picture is useless.

Well I'm back. That's not David Copperfield, that's Quentin Crisp on a bad day. Still, peel off the mold from Jeff Beck Group's Truth and Beck-Ola albums (a great guitarist, not the upstart sample-mad "beck" who's okay in small doses, like uranium) and you will find a singer with power to burn. Compare his "You Shook Me" with Bob Plant's and you'll find a sense of humor along with good pipes. And "Shapes of Things," well, a great song made to groove. What a great song for Robyn to cover! You guys remember that one, a Yardbirds number? Sorry I ramble. Too much jolt.

i don't recall a giant plastic computer, but sometimes i'm not as observant as i should be. microphones work ok on the net, but cameras are a bit spottier, especially across the atlantic, i bet. (still, i'd like to know what she's got against cameras! there's nothing wrong with pc cameras, despite some of the odd uses found for them these days. heh heh.)

FROM: Chewing Wax

Dog is a four year old black lab named Blue. My friend barged into my house with two fat little puppies. A sales tactic which should be illegal. The puppy I chose knocked over a bottle of Labatt Blue, lapped it up and then sat in front of the television and watched football. Cat is a thirteen year old Siamese named Rocko for absolutely no reason other than that's what struck me. He swats at the dog who takes halariously exaggerated prat falls making him feel quite powerful and dominant.

FROM: Sleepy
DATE: Wed Nov 5 06:07:09 PST 1997
CW - no?! Really?! You bring your dog to work? You're not teasing me? I think that The Man With Two Brains is excellent, although All Of Me is wonderful too. About 10 years ago I went to a Steve Martin film all-nighter at a now defunct cinema in Kings Cross. It was amazing. People turned up with joke arrows-through-the-head and really got into the spirit of the thing. Ah, happy days. I don't think I could ever do that now.

FROM: Morrissey T. Smith

FROM: Sleepy
