Wow! it’s been over a week since my last blog, full moon fever indeed! Over the past week I’ve auditioned for a Rock n’Roll Roots band – first proper rehearsal tonight. Been deceived by the Dublin Bus digitally deceptive bus-stop read-out, and busked a few choons in town. I’ve also been looking at David McWilliams.com.

I’m reading a book The Time Paradox by Philip Zimbardo & John Boyd. It’s an engrossing read, full, as you might guess, of paradoxes. According to the book, I’m a present-hedonist. Living for the moment, in general, leads to being happier than being either past or future oriented, so it seems. Thing is, sooner or later there’s some price to pay. Is it worth it? Where do you you live? Past, Present or Future? What’s it like there? Comments please!
I’ve just come back from a short trip to the local supermarket, short, happily being the operative word as I chose to be served by a shop assistant – for whom there was no queue- instead of getting in line to use the checkout machines. What are we coming to when we’d rather wait in line to self-serve using a machine instead of interacting with another human and avoid the queuing? What indeed?!…Was it Marina and The Diamonds who sang “I am not a robot” ? unfortunately, I think she’s fast becoming a member of the minority.
This is a great example of the wonderful ramshackle blend that Keef and Woody have. Unique harmonies from Richards. They’ve got such a great understanding of that kind of Rn’B and give it some blue-eyed soul to boot.
