Listen in, listen Ian!
Some Fantastic Place which is one of my favourite albums, but for some reason I've never really bothered catching up with their other albums. This didn't matter last night though, as it was mainly just a run through the hits - there was a bit in the middle that was five or six album tracks in a row that I didn't know, which is fair enough, but I knew the vast majority of the songs. It was nice being at a gig where I was one of the youngest people there instead of being one of the oldest there as well.I went to see Squeeze last night in Hammersmith, and it was excellent. I've not really got a lot of their stuff - I've got their old greatest hits album which is obviously full of great songs, and I've got |
I had the day off work yesterday, ostensibly to do christmas shopping but I did very little of that. I'm not doing too badly with christmas shopping though - I've done some of it on Amazon, I did a bit more yesterday and I have at least any idea what else I'm going to get people. Instead of shopping, I decided to go to the refurbished London Transport Museum instead which is good. I like the middle aged stuff - the tube carriages from the 70s and the stuff from when the Victoria Line opened, and the display about design on the Underground is good. After I'd been to the Museum I got some lunch and had a half hearted wander down Oxford Street failing to buy much.
Does anyone know of any decent DVD storage solutions out there? My DVDs take up far too much space on shelves, but I don't want to get rid of them so I think I need some sort of way of storing them not in the boxes. I don't want to just put all the discs in one of those big wallets that holds4 discs on a page, I want something that I can put the inlays in as well. Without knowing if such a thing exists, I'm visualising a small filing cabinet affair, where the drawers have a cross section the same shape and size as a DVD case, and are divided into small sections that will hold a disc and the inlay. Does anything like this exist at all - I couldn't see anything while I was out and about yesterday.
In Doctor Who book news, I picked up the the final volume of About Time at lunchtime, so I don't really want to be in work for another two hours, I want to be at home reading this. There are a few interesting looking non-fiction Who books out at the moment - that history of the Target novels looks good. I'd also like there to be an About Time equivalent for Blake's Seven - that'd be good.
