This Too Shall Pass

Enjoy this astonishing video from innovative band OK Go – absolutely brilliant.

Nimrod

This is one of my most favourite pieces of music. It never fails to give me goosebumps.

I’m a little horny

So, Christmas is nearly here. The goose is getting fat, or at least it’s getting ready for pickup from the local farm shop. There’s no escaping it: I get to play a lot of Christmas..
