Any excuse for a Basil Fawlty picture
Cue up Velvet Revolver: it's another trip for my wife -- to Germany this time. And no, she won't say anything about the war.
Then it's on to Australia. Hm, how best to offend the Aussies? Is there a handy Crocodile Dundee reference I can reach for? Or should I just say, "Fair dinkum" and be done with it?
Unrelated Post-It Note: "Why ... would someone who came of musical age in the punk era, alongside acts that aspired to take the piss out of absolutely everything, work so tirelessly to put the piss back in?"; "Unyoked from Copeland, Sting was free to become what he is today: one-third spirit in the material world, two-thirds scented candle." If Bob Geldof is "ostensibly a friend" of Sting's, this profile by Stephen Metcalf is ostensibly appreciative of the man and his formerly-super band, The Police.
