I'm taking a break from blogging.

I appear to have lost my Ghost mojo.

I'll see you I hope on Twitter and Soundcloud and This Is My Jam - and in that chair in the corner of the Snug.

Happy New Year companeros x

Merry Christmas Baby

I'd forgotten all about iTunes Protected AAC Files (R.I.P.) until I realised ye olde download I have of this is one.

So here's a Soundcloud thingy instead - of 'Take 1' as you can see, a slightly different version to the one we all know and love (which is 'Take' what, I wonder?).

I'd offer you an egg nog if I knew what one was.
