Go Back! Go Back!
I try to post here on most days, but that’s only really possible when I’m in Barcelona because my working hours are consistently much longer. Light, it’s all about the light…shortly I return to London and try not to feel depressed about the months ahead.
Sometimes I simply run out of ideas, because they’re all being pumped into whichever book I’m currently working on. So while I was looking for something fresh today, I realised I’d never looked back at old posts. When I did I was in for a shock. The site has been going for eleven years! Sometimes I was posting two of three times a DAY.
And the subjects covered look like the ramblings of an ADD-afflicted lunatic, ranging from the electronic control of sheep to John Bercow’s expenses.
So today may I suggest a little dive into the world of say, the Player’s Theatre or the London Dolphinarium? There are subjects in those eleven year that even I don’t remember anything about, although I have popped back to re-view Jane Horrocks’ terrifyingly accurate depiction of children’s television’s ‘Picture Book’, with its cracker of an end-line.
You have a wander around in what I regard as the online equivalent of the PCU’s attic, while I get on finishing Arthur Bryant’s assault on a millionaire businessman’s offices in ‘Oranges & Lemons’, next year’s B&M novel.
I’ll be back…let me know if you find anything particularly weird.
