    Not every musician can be Mark Hollis. Most just keep on chooglin' even when their close friends and relatives have lost interest in their work.

    Two nights ago I watched Paul. Last night I youtubed "Another Girl, Another Planet," which brought me to "Teenage Kicks" and then the Wreckless Eric song and when that was done I found the haggis twins cover of "Whole Wide World" and I was simultaneously appalled/intrigued that these guys are still at it so then I was looking back on Proclaimers deep cuts I remembered from when my sister used to spin Sunshine on Leith post-Benny and Joon and frankly when I learned that the title track is a team anthem I was like imlikewhoa

    Although I'd completely forgotten about that song I will admit that to this day the opening stanza of "Sean" will still pop into my head now and again.

    I also wanna say, it's still a pretty good song and all but I really don't think "Teenage Kicks" is the 28/4 song John Peel thought it was.

    I hear that I guess I just assumed they were either retired and living comfortably on "I'm gonna be" royalties or they both fulfilled a suicide pact 15-20 years ago.

    I remember when our geography teacher brought in a Gall-Peters world map, blew our tiny minds.

    I wonder if Elvis Costello is really going to dance on her grave.

    I guess that's my American question for a British person.

    I was on the train back from Newcastle and they announced it over the tannoy (which is a bit odd imo) and roughly a quarter of my carriage cheered and one old dude said "the witch is dead". pretty surreal.

    I'd like to ask "what's a Tannoy?" but I'm good enough at reading context clues to figure it out myself.

    Was on the Trib website and there was a link with her picture with the words "Margaret Thatcher Over the Years" and I thought "Did she die or something? Oh, coffee's ready."
