Who has a top six of anything? Pale Fire by Nabokov Coming Up for Air by Orwell Beasts and Super-Beasts by Saki Collected Poems (1988 Edition) by Larkin The Myth of Sisyphus by Camus Metamorphoses by Ovid (the A.D. Melville translation)
Much better post-op. I mean, post-Gaga.
My love for Elgar does somewhat conflict with my hatred of recordings bores, but I digress. I'm rather doctrinaire about British recordings being the only ones that capture that singularly British sensibility to Elgar's music. Everything else just sounds like the equivalent of Dane Cook doing Hamlet to my ears. For the Enigma Variations, I'm fond of Boult conducting the LSO. Recorded not long before his retirement and death in the early '80s, it has the wisdom, good...
I threw out all my Serge Gainsbourg records this morning.
Unfortunately, I'm genetically predisposed to enjoy this show. Likewise, gin and tonics help ease the guilt.
I'd rather like to permanently have a Sobranie in one hand to complement the gin and tonic in the other, but I haven't got the taste for it, unfortunately.
I saw a performance of Piano Concerto No. 3 tonight. Half thrilling, half boring, like much of early to middle period Beethoven. I'd rather they did anything from the late period, frankly. Or, considering the main attraction was the Enigma Variations, Piano Sonata No. 8 would have been thematically consistent (Mendelssohn's Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage was the opener).
I fully endore this mauling. As for the lady's face, nothing a little Touche Éclat can't fix.

It was intended. And many may be successful, original and... awesome (I hate you for...
Marijuana is the drug of apathy. It is the drug of simpletons. It is the drug of middle class dullards. It is a drug for 12-year-olds, the next step after sniffing Tipp-Ex and permanent markers on the back of the school bus. And it's easily the least stylish drug in the world; the most pathetic substance of all. I have more respect for glue-sniffers. Utter waste of one's time and money.
