  1. No! It is not Spring yet! The lawn is still dormant and I sincerely hope it stays that way. (I hate mowing).

  2. I'm as restless as a willow in a windstorm
    I'm as jumpy as a puppet on a string
    I'd say that I had spring fever
    But I know it isn't spring


    (original lyric - Oscar Hammerstein II)

    By the by, this is one of my favouritest album covers ever.

  7. BTW, I can see why that album cover might be one of your faves. She wants you. I can see it on her face and in her eyes. No wonder you're such a poor judge.

    (I am beginning to fear it may never ever stop raining ever x)

  9. I don't understand all this clock fiddling equinox/fat moon in Uranus stuff .. and I cut my grass yesterday.

    Bald as a fuckin coot it is now. (By the way, would we expect a coot to be well thatched upon the head region? It's a duck type thing innit?)

    And dear Mr DJ Davide, because I love every optic fibre in your blog, can you please play the topicaltastic Spring Collection by The Vapors?

    Mmmwaaah.

  10. I suspect the coot's prominent white forehead was once misconstrued as a bald patch - Vapors!.

    And if it's raining in San Francisco, a girl needs some blue Bill more than ever x

  11. If I ever succumb to jazz it'll be in no small part down to the sleeve artwork. I bought this a while back - absolutely amazing. My investigations so far though have only revealed that Hubert Laws totally fails to live up to his sleeve (pg 255).

  12. Got to tell you that Bill more than does.

    I want everything in that book, on vinyl, mint!
