I Am Kloot – Let It All In

letitallinIt’s been a silly old 2013 round here.  Stresses, strains, constant six-day weeks and a bit of soul-searching have been hammering away at the back of my head, with somewhat inevitable results.  The weather not bothering to make its mind up about what it’s doing hasn’t helped the general feeling of unspecified malaise either, although that might just be the horsemeat in the lasagne talking (or neighing).

Thankfully a couple of major changes have taken (or are in the midst of taking) place, leaving a clearer view.  And there’s also the arrival of this, which has helped rather a lot – a record that lifts the spirits by instilling a feeling of camaraderie and community by simply being itself, and that revels in the battles against the crushing normality of daily doings that get to us all. 


End of Year Doings, Part 3

Yes, quite.

Just realised that in doing a top 35 (which isn’t exactly 35 anyway), splitting it into chunks of ten will eventually offend some law of mathematics or other.  Whoops.

Undeterred by this, the last five(ish!) will be individually added daily next week from Monday – although as I’m attempting a jaunt off down to the South Coast on Wednesday for three days this might get delayed a bit depending on internet connection and whether or not I stuff the car into a snowdrift on the way down there.  Will be brilliant when/if I arrive (not least because of a gig I’ve been looking forward to for months), must admit to being a bit twitchy about the journey although I’m sure it’s nothing that a shovel, spare socks and a flask of Bovril can’t sort out…  Will certainly be finished by next Sunday anyway, as I’m getting to the point where I just want it done and out of the bloody way!
