 Infant evangelist genius of holy quackery.
 Selling insurance philosophy the old-fashioned way via flexi-discs.
 Selling Marx at a loss the old fashioned way via LP. The man's
got a wallet & he's about to crack it open.
o Fighting the shrink-wrap nature of time in a half-assed way. Just
back from being away and it already seems like ages that I was
absorbing Enlightenment art in Florence and taking pix of amazing
details like Moorish styled manhole covers.
o Part of the playlist delays involves too much paid work, less
energy with summer heat, the attraction of sunlight, a new book
contract for YODEL IN HIFI, doing stuff with daughter and partner.
And that is not all: add in cynicism, despair, the distractive
discourse of multi-media access, fiddling with a new computer, recent
contact with blasts from the past, trying to actually WRITE, trying
to farm out whole volumes of fiction onto an unsuspecting public and
o I resist entering into arguments with people who claim the world is
getting worse, although it probably is, these people claim 'things'
were better in their own heyday - the 50s, 60s, 70s, and even the 80s
and they are probably right but they usually come on so
self-righteous as if they had such a large hand in the collective
well-being rather than just being a piece of effluvia on a turbulent
o I have heard some incredible new, old and unusual sounds of late as
my ears careen all over the audiosphere. From Iris Garrelfs always
interesting explorations of that boundary where abandoned space meets
wayward sound. But I also continue to explore the realm of how music
[pop] both occupies and infects the nostalgia-inducing parts of our
brains. Are these old songs as good as I remember them or was it a
temporary coming together of circumstance, sound, need and hormones
that is lost upon subsequent [30 years later!] listens.
o Report says Curvy women may be a clever bet [good news for my
partner!]: Women with curvy figures* are likely to be brighter than
waif-like counterparts and may well produce more intelligent
offspring, a US study suggests. Researchers studied 16,000 women and
girls and found the more voluptuous performed better on cognitive
tests - as did their children.
* The bigger the difference between a woman's waist and hips the
better. [i agree!]
Researchers writing in Evolution and Human Behaviour speculated this
was to do with fatty acids found on the hips. In this area, the fat
is likely to be the much touted Omega-3, which could improve the
woman's own mental abilities as well as those of her child during
pregnancy. Men respond to the double enticement of both an
intelligent partner and an intelligent child, the researchers at the
Universities of Pittsburgh and California said. The findings appear
to be borne out in the educational attainments of at least one of the
UK's most famous curvaceous women, Nigella Lawson, who graduated from
But experts are not convinced by the findings. "On the fatty deposits
being related to intelligence front, it's very hard to detangle that
from other factors, such as social class, for instance, or diet,"
said Martin Tovee of Newcastle University. And much as we logically
like the idea that men are interested in the waist to hip ratio
attractive, it actually features relatively low down the list of
feature males look for in a potential partner."
