Oh now this makes me sad

Lies divided me I wonder
Cries enlighten me I wonder
Light has guided me I'm stronger
To escape to where dearly intended dwell

Never seen the light, I don't know where to escape
From that fear of impending hell
Now I've seen the light, my soul laid bare
To forsake that fear of impending hell

RIP Ursula LeGuin,


that one hurts, I'd had an odd experience with the Earthsea books, gave them a go when I was around 10 and really didnt get it, nowhere near enough pewpew fireballs and violence, gave them another go about 10 years later off something either Gaiman or Sir Terry said and totally fell for them, and in hindsight a lot of Granny Weatherwax seems very Earthsea inspired

Feeling mournful today over Le Guin. She produced really deep novels which deal with nuanced social and political themes, yet without moralising, without forcing it into your face, whilst still being very enjoyable novels with great characterisation. I would strongly recommend The Left Hand of Darkness, it was my favourite all time novel in my 20s and among my top five nowadays.

My favourite MES story involves Badly Drawn Boy. BDB stops his car when he sees Mark E Smith leaving some building. MES waves him down, presuming it's a taxi, gets in the backseat and orders BDB to take him home. Which he does, without question.

One of my favourite things about The Fall was just how varied their sound could be. Ghost in my House is really quite different to the glorious cacophony of 'It's The New Thing'.

To steal a quote I'm ashamed to say I don't know the true origin of....'My Idols are dead, and my enemies are in power'

Not so much politically (these things pass), but the state of the music industry. All creativity seems stifled and codified - the anarchy of the Punk and New Wave era has been cast out in favour of autotune and standardisation.
