It's been a while since I've posted, here's a few:

(Thanks to thenewgreen's top 5 album thread for Willie Nelson)

BBC News, The Guardian, Reddit and New Statesman. Special interest - RockPaperShotgun (PC Gaming) and AndroidPolice (Android news)

It's definitely hard to pick but like you said without overthinking, here goes. I had a few that very nearly made it.

  1. Elliott Smith, Either/Or

  2. Nick Drake, Pink Moon

  3. Joni Mitchell, Blue

  4. Neutral Milk Hotel, In the Aeroplane Over the Sea

  5. Beck, Sea Change

I listened to this again recently for the first time in a long while, fantastic album.

It definitely seems plausible. Here's an academic's response to the theory.

I actually visited the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam recently, absolutely amazing place. Definitely worth checking out if you ever visit.

I was recommended AIrbnb by a friend and am possibly going to be using it to visit Amsterdam next week because I've got a week off from work. Any recommendations for places to see and things to do?

Been on a bit of a James Taylor kick lately

I love Cat Stevens

Françoise Hardy too

Currently working at a mortgage company doing admin, I'm saving up for the future.

I might make a trip to Canada next year but I'm not sure yet. I've got a working holiday visa (lasts a year) but I'm not that keen on the idea because I originally got it so I could live with my ex-girlfriend which unfortunately didn't work out. I'm not sure if I want to still go because I'd be totally alone without any support over there while I'm working and/or travelling.

I had a go in DADGAD tuning, I don't have a recording setup so just used my webcam's microphone, so apologies for the quality. The only edits I made was a fade in and fade out at the end. I find it much harder improvising singing than I do guitar.

1. The Tallest Man on Earth - Where Do My Bluebirds Fly

It's a beautiful song, I think it's appropriate for this time of year too - kind of an autumnal feel. I love the rough feel of his guitar and voice.

I'm really digging the Cranberries at the minute and here's some other stuff too:
