Terry Pratchett

At last I have started reading the Terry Pratchett books, I can't believe I left it so long! They are a wonderful mix of wit and escapism which I am desperately in need of. I haven't been addicted to a book in a long while but each one of these demands my attention right through to the end. Wonderba I can't complement Terry enough.

Also another recent love is that for the Toy Story films. The third being a particularly fine film which made me laugh more than a lot of comedies I've seen. A truly emotional and funny film truly accesible to all the family. I think when I saw it there was only about 5% of the people in audience under the age of 16. Wonderful!

This last weekend I had the pleasure of spending my time in London for a Gig. The sublime Noah and the Whale. We decided to spend a little time in the city either side of the gig and I took some of this time to explore a small portion of the V&A. After the disapointingly crowded Natural History Museum it was quite nice to pop in here and have a brief glance at some of the displays. One such display was a photography exhibition. "Sorry you've only got 5 minutes" was what the lady at the door said. I had a quick look around saw one picture I particularly liked, wrote the name down very quickly then left. I've shown some of Hans van der Meer's work here because I like the landscape, I like the Sunday feeling to it and I like the fact it reminds me of being a child.

I also like that these pictures remind me of this wonderful music video by the beautiful Sigur Ros.
