The Ultimate Unloved CD Review Project, Part 2

More CD reviews of CD in my collection that I haven't listened to properly.

The Ultimate Unloved CD Review Project (an occassional series)

To amuse myself (and to have something to post, even though I doubt anyone besides quinara will actually be interested and even then) I have decided to try and get more value out of my CD collection by listening to and reviewing all those CDs I have that are just languishing there unplayed and unloved; who knows there may be some hidden gems just waiting for me to be bothered to find them! After all Spotify managed to get me to engage with a couple of Echo & the Bunnymen albums I didn’t get into the first time round (I missed out on some great songs, what was I doing????), so it could work!

Some words of caution. As my collection leans heavily into Rock/Alternative/Indie these reviews will obviously cover these genres, but there may still be some tentative forays into others. There might also be some embarrassing surprises that will erode my cool a bit (though not as many as there would have been if I had been reviewing my vinyl...). :)

I will try and review a fairly well known* album (er…when I can) and one less so each time. I am not going to review albums I like/liked and know well, nor will I include soundtracks, compilations, greatest hits and live albums (not that I am much of a fan of those). I will also horrifically date myself.

* 'Well known' is a relative term, of course.

Here we go.

Interior Design is hard

I need your help peoples!

It’s taken me a while to get around to posting these pictures, but I have been in the process of replacing my kitchen for the last 8 months or so. The new units, etc are in but I still need to decorate. It’s already so much better than what I had before, but I need to finish it now.

But I am having so much trouble choosing the décor! I have gone through ideas for a) aqua blue paint with blue glass titles, b). a mural of a nebula on the biggest wall with black/dark blue titles (a bit to expensive and you won’t see much of the picture anyway), and c) brick effect textured wallpaper with god knows what tiles. All I know is that white/off-white and yellow are my absolute no-nos. Blue is always preferable.Or a dark purple???? I want dramatic and a place for my clock.

Anyway…

Pics under the cut!Collapse )

So, any suggestions (within my budget budget)?

Six Things Meme

RIP Steve Strange.

Now some nonsense:

curiouswombat gave me the letter G for the six things meme:

Something I hate: Green Tomatoes! Well, all tomatoes really. And most greens.

Something I love: Goldfrapp. I was just listening to them today and realising the song 'Twist' is even more dirty than I thought. Plus Alison Goldfrapp is an alum of my uni (a little ahead of me though)

Somewhere I've been: Germany was just a day trip, so I will say Glastonbury! Both the festival and the town. The Somerset levels are one of my favourite places, when they aren't underwater that is.

Somewhere I'd like to go: There's nowhere beginning with G I have a great hankering to see. The Great Barrier Reef? That has to be better than Glasgow.

Someone I know: gillo is the only G I can think of currently.

A film I liked: G... G.. Gattica? Nah. Ghostbusters! Of course.

If you want a letter, just ask.

Birthday? Okay then.

I have to confess I'm finding this whole birthday thing a bit meh these days.

Perhaps it's because nothing really happens on them anymore not because I am getting so old; I had presents last Sunday (a toaster! a clock! Ah adulthood) and I am going out to dinner tomorrow. And yes, I visited my friend tonight and she treated me to a takeaway, but that's our usual Saturday night transplanted to a Friday. I even went to the shop to buy a cake for afternoon off indulgence, but came out with some Bakewell Tarts and a packet of Wotsits.

Still, life could be a lot worse. Mustn'y grumble.

The Bogwitch Creative Review of 2014

Happy New Year!

This will be even shorter than last year.

Fic

None.

Art

None (sort of – there were lots of banners and things for sb_fag_ends, but nothing proper).

My creative 2014 was really in learning lots of new card making techniques and a little bit of jewellery-making, rather than words; even if I did write a little original stuff for myself to keep my hand in.

I really must finish that epic WIP… And post more than just sb_fag_ends prompts.

I suppose I should make the effort...

Merry Christmas!

Poop

Surely German must have a spare word for when you start cooking and realise you don't have an onion (and have to go to the shop where they only sell them in threes because you can't be arsed to go to a bigger supermarket for one item and you'll never get through all of those on your own)?

Where does the time go?

I've had a four day weekend with very few committments and yet all I have managed to do is go shopping on Friday (bought noting of note), take the cat to the vets (she's fine) and clear out my cutlery drawer (I now have very few forks).

I have nothing to show for my time!

I haven't seen any unicorns lately...

I have just stabbed my hand with a steak knife. There's a visible slice into the flesh but curiously, there is absolutely no blood.

Does this mean I am a robot?
