I thought deeply about changing the layout/design of this blog, but decided against it. Call it laziness, lack of an innovative spirit -- whatever.

Then, it continued to look like crapballs in Internet Explorer.

This week sees the arrival of Glasgowian outfit The Cinematics, who, despite the crappy name, might have a shot at the mainstream. Perhaps I will go, and perhaps they will be good live.
Perhaps not. (This was the first I saw/heard of them, and the opening line, "I like my loneliness" did not make a good first impression.)
