Brautigan and my continuing obsession

Ok, I now have revised copies of my introduction and first chapter on Brautigan up. Hoping these are now ok and I can move on to gender, postmodernism and time. It’s been a long weekend…

…but I’ve broken up the work with a few dips into my current obsession:


Hahah, I sneaked that in didn’t I? I told you I wouldn’t shut up easily. That one reminds me a lot of Radiohead.



A nice busking version of Christmas in Adventure Parks. I like it. Nice and lo-fi. He’s got a great voice though…



And is it just me or is this very Placeboesque?

    a) interesting Brautigan stuff, keep ’em coming

    b) Placebo were always wank, that song’s far better

    Thanks James. I’m suprised anyone is reading something as dull as a thesis to be honest. I wrote it and it makes me fall asleep… I need some more assessment of the critics in my intro apparently so I’ll be doing that next. But when I get to editing chapters 2 and 3 I’ll stick them up. Insomnia cure for us all.

    Yeah, Placebo were a bit shit. Don’t tell my missus – she loves them. Mind you, she likes Depeche Mode. I liked ‘Taste in Men’ but that was pretty much it… Differing opinions on short stories, on Placebo and Depeche Mode, on Terry Pratchett, I dunno why we’re together really…
