Christmas All Over Again

Online shopping's a funny thing for me. It takes me a while to get into but when I do it becomes dangerous. Dad got me a gift voucher and I wanted new music but when it came to it I didn't know what to get. We watched the film Juno on Christmas day and I thought it had a nice wee mellow soundtrack so that was my first purchase. I'd been ranting and raving about Jeff Noon recently so I bought Pollen and Nymphomation. The final thing I got was Tideland. I'd watched this a couple of years ago and, typically, forgot the name of it. I told Kerm one night that it was called Fields Of Corn. It's a Terry Gilliam movie and although it's a bit dark it's extremely captivating. I then proceeded to the checkout to discover that I couldn't pay with my voucher because I'd bought used items. Aw weel...

I paid with my card and continued shopping. Suddenly I was inspired. I got the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's B.R.M.C. and a weird CD by Jack Johnson and friends called Curious George. I probably should've checked that one first. I also got Death In Vegas' Scorpio Rising. Nice bit of chill out music to soothe the mind. The last thing I got was The Tao of Pooh and The Te of Piglet by Benjamin Hoff. Thanks dad for all my lovely presents!!

'Vurt' rules, probably my fave of his. You have put me in mind to reread it. Pixel Juice was ace, too. And Automated Alice. Awesome.

And 'Tao of Pooh' is, of course, great. Why didn't I mention that in my last comment? As for BMRC, their first fuzz long player is definitely the best.

Mr. Taoist! Your taste is exceptional! I suspect, if you haven't already seen Juno, that you'd love the soundtrack to it. Jeff Noon is just an awesome writer.

Watched Juno straight after watching Little Miss Sunshine. Probably not the best time to watch it. Soundtrack was great though. So when do you want to come over? Dad xxxxx
