I'd quite like to look like this.

Anyway, it's funny to see a book listed on Amazon before I've actually finished writing it. It appears to be coming out on my birthday. Again.

If that book doesn't come to exactly 224 pages, there will be trouble, young man.

Believe me, it will. That's why I'm sitting here at a desk on Sunday morning.

Man, I'm totally going to start putting "active blogger" on my CV. That's brilliant. I wonder if they'd be impressed with my good download ratio with Cheggit too.

Well done though, very proud.

Active Blogger not my idea. And actually, not very true at the moment, but there you go.

I've just been writing that little section, actually. I think the point is that clarinettists are now no longer intrinsically sexy. About as much as as, I dunno, upholsterers. But that doesn't mean they can't be.

And hey, the bassoon is an even less sexy instrument than the clarinet, but look at me, I've got women swooning at me on a daily basis.

Oh no, sorry, that's shouting. Shouting.

If by "nowadays" you mean since the 1950s...

The clarinet just isn't a rock posturing instrument, you're right.

Weirdly was thinking of you today. While at a car boot sale saw a copy of a Prefab Sprout album and a Scritti Polliti album, both of which bands I believe you've mentioned.
Rhodri Marsdenrhodri on May 10th, 2009 02:02 pm (UTC)
Indeed. I hope you bought them both :)
Laura: Kitten lickabrokenstarr on May 10th, 2009 03:28 pm (UTC)
Unfortunately not. I'm not telling you what I did buy either...

The B-52's WERE a good idea.

I demand you recreate this look if you have any kind of book launch whatsoever.
