So it’s time for a change and a new site to host the blog.
Tom and I are are going to the UK in the summer for three weeks and I was going to turn this into a document about that, the other drivel that is on my mind and science fiction as well, as the reading project continues.
The reading has become more interesting. I am realizing that science fiction as a genre covers much ground. I am drawn to the stranger weirder side of the genre as demonstrated by Ballard, Moorcock, Vandermeer and Mieville. It is also fun to just throw yourself into a good story though that may not be so challenging but is a ripping yarn all the same.
So right now it’s Chris’s bass lesson with Don the bass dude in his garage/studio. Chris really likes his bass lessons it’s make up time though with hour and a half lessons.
This weeks soundtrack has been back to Here and Now, Planet Gong and Alternative TV. Still firmly stuck in the late seventies and early eighties, some things really never change.
The last couple of weeks have really been involved with planting in the garden, many beans, peas, oregano, basil, lots of onions, green and otherwise, peppers, squash, zucchini, spinach, the strawberries have their own space and the return of the dreaded cucumbers, two years ago there were so many cucumbers I ran out of ways to use them. It is so much fin to grub around in the dirt although every time I dig a hole the dog puts his ball in it to be thrown.
