Love it, though I think I'll always think of it as "Rod Stewart", too--though I understand why he gave it a "real" title. It's part of my personal "holy trinity" of lesser-known FT travel songs (the other two being "Sea Legs" and "Wanderlust") that I really hope he plays at least one of when he's he...

First concert ever was Tori Amos-- seating was bleachers and movable chairs in a basketball gym at the University of California Irvine in summer 1994. I have no idea who opened. I was thirteen and had little clue about music in general beyond Nirvana and the rest of the grunge scene in those days, b...

So glad to know I'm not alone, ha. I guess it makes sense that you would dream of actually following through on those things you need to do-- but then know you've fallen short once you wake up and return to reality, feeling like you haven't accomplished much at all. Sounds like my typical Sunday. (E...

"I keep having dreams of things I need to do / of waking up and of following through" --> I totally thought this was "of waking up and NOT following through", which is completely a reflection of my own guilty conscience over procrastinating....

Huzzah for Royal Mail!

Much to my surprise (after an e-mail that said the expected delivery date was 27 June), my CD arrived in a nice earth-friendly package from Amazon UK/today! So I suppose Royal Mail's strategy is to set up overseas customers with low expectations so that we'll end up being pleasantly surprised when o...

Jealous of you all! To anyone worried about getting theirs late, you're probably still ahead of me! Amazon UK just e-mailed to say that my expected delivery date is 27 June. That's what I get for jumping the gun and not realizing there'd be signed copies available via Amazon USA. Boo. Good thing I'v...

Re: never was no god

I was thinking that earlier! All I hear is the double negative... That line makes me think of African-American vernacular, a.k.a. ebonics (which is actually a not-entirely-accurate synonym, but that's a discussion for another time and place), which seems fitting as Frank has said he was going for a...

never was no god

Can anybody tell me (its probably a obvious answer) but why does he use the lines "there never was no God" Whats the actually meaning of that? I was thinking that earlier! All I hear is the double negative... That line makes me think of African-American vernacular, a.k.a. ebonics (which is actually...

Ben Marwood

I, too, want to check out Ben Marwood after hearing about him from Frank's blog and these forums. I assume I can find him on iTunes (haven't looked yet), but any advice on what to start with? Thanks in advance.

Greetings... I'm Analisa, born and raised in the Los Angeles area, but trying to manage my addiction to travel while still holding down a job here. I lived in London (Bounds Green and Hoxton/Shoreditch) in 2003-2004--the best decision of my life. I only wish I'd known about Million Dead back then! S...
