This book will be available in hard copy around late spring. The discount expires 1/2010.

I discovered this theoretical approach while doing some research and realized that it applies not only to literature, but also to music, art and film. Quite exciting!
To discuss this theory, I'm thinking of setting up a blogsite, but I haven't a clue how to begin. If anyone has a suggestion, I'm all ears.

You're the BEST, T!
Thank you!

Off the point, a bit. Only you can't comment on Playlists. I just wanted to say how good it was to hear Chickentown. I keep coming across JCC this year for some reason - 10 Years in an Open Necked Shirt, I Married the Monster from Outer Space, etc., etc. Brilliant.

Glad ye enjoy chicken town Dominic, there's another couple of tracks somewhere down the playlist Beesley Street is my favourite but i can't find it. I first heard him when I was a young kid at an Elvis Costello concert (he was the support act) in the 70's and have never seen the like before-or since!

Good, isn't he? I was left with a similar feeling after seeing him at Glastonbury years ago.
