  • Hard News: Friday Music: Up the Charts,

    That Frank Lloyd Wright cover has been my earworm this week. Now I have pictures to go with the sound, I fear it will never leave me. And I can't quite fathom why, but it could only ever have been from Simon and Garfunkel.

    Na the journey to the airport from Pt Chev via Maioro is a nightmare at any time through the day. A 2 minute backtrack to the St Lukes interchange could easily save 20 minutes.

  • Hard News: We can make things better here,

    I'm already grateful for not having to consult the tide chart before my commute from Pt Chev to Hendo - salt water and bike chains don't go together very well.
    But i can't wait to cruise along that lovely new smooth section of tarmac after tomorrow's opening.

    Further up the estuary, near the pie factory. Damn nice chili beef and cheese pie too.

    Yay for Mo's bar; I've spent a few nights I can't remember there myself.

    When I first heard this Future Islands track I was totally underwhelmed; but then I watched this passionate Letterman performance and, well, see for yourself...

    I'll freely admit to not liking pretty much anything Springsteen has done musically, but the Royals cover is truly awful. I've witnessed some pretty lame attempts by touring artists to endear themselves to the home crowd but that one takes the biscuit.
    I quite like this though - recommended by my teenage son...
