Well, Newcastleton was fun, though I cut my finger whilst packing and by Saturday afternoon I couldn't play which was a problem, but since Saturday night was a bit of a tune void later on this wasn't a problem. Successfully manged to miss all of Live 8 apart from faint sounds on a radio when we were in eating in a restaurant.

The Gaijin passed me the musical baton that has been going around for a bit, so here's my answers :

1. Total volume of music files on my computer:
Somewhere around 45 Gb, split over several discs and shares.

2. Last CD I bought:
Bajofondo Tangoclub - tango and electronica. I also got the Ludovic Beier Quartet's New Montmarte.

3. Song Playing Right Now:
At this very moment, I am listening to a podcast by DJ Carlitos that was mentioned on Boing Boing. It's OK but doesn't leap out and grab me.

4. Five Songs (or Albums) I listen to a lot or that move me;

Can anyone see any point to Live 8 other than to the boost the album sales of some aging rock "stars" - there are only two bands playing that I would cross the room to see. Luckily I will be at Newcastleton folk festival making my own music, though I doubt I'll be able to avoid it.

I forwarded some messages to ebay this morning ask them to cofirm whther they were real or not and I got these stupid replies saying that they were spam! I wonder if they had even looked at the contents which purported to be from Customer Services encouraging me to pay someone via Western Union. I am not impressed by their so-called "service"

Watching Glastonbury on the BBC. The Killers were excellent as were Royksopp (sp?) who I hadn't really heard before and who I am much taken with (my daughter just came in and asked me to turn the sound down....) Didn't go for Babyshambles, Bloc Party or the Doves much and I was rather unimpressed by the White Stripes - the only word I can come up with is "amateurish" but that's probably unfair. I suspect if you didn't Fat Boy Slim was a bit dull. KT Tunstall's BBC studio version of Black horse was rather good.

Zen Pockets - I hate carrying stuff and have never found a good solution for the stuff that I do carry. For years I used a shoulder bag, but that really does twist your body. Currently I use a rucksack to carry my laptop about but I don't really like it. When it is really cold in the winter I have a fantastic coat with lots of well placed pockets, but it is the only coat/jacket that I own that has that well designed. In summer it is even worse - almost no pockets at all.

Backyard Paradises. Talking of backyard paradises, the brake on my neighbour;s car slipped off and it ran down the hill into my own design "vertical blind" fence. Luckily it wasn't severely damaged as it was fairly hard to make : it is designed so that you can sit in the backyard and rotate the panels to end on so that you can see down into the garden which is across the back lane. One of my better ideas.

I just had a row with my bank who would not speak to my wife when we were trying to take out a loan via our joint account. I said "I don't do money - she's my representative". They of course gave me some spurious crap about the data protection act. Why the hell is it called a joint account if there has to be one principal account holder? Ridiculous.

Just been to Joe Scurfield's funeral which took place in a park near where he lived. Lots of tunes and songs (someone did Teenage Kicks, accompanying himself on the fiddle) - simple, cardboard coffin, bunches of flowers from friends, and everyone was there. So no links today, this entry is just for Joe.

Go to the BBC Radio 4 site, and go to listen again and listen to "Howay the Laughs" - a history of Tyneside comedy. I'd love to know if any of you crosspondians have *any* idea of what these guys are saying at all. (Ole, you don't count) If you do understand there are some great jokes and routines, if you don't it may just perplex...... (And no, I can't be bothered digging out the link at the moment as I have just come back from a good meal with nice red wine)
