2013 – Summer of Music

Posted: August 31, 2013 in Uncategorized

Before August came around, I would search for eccentric items on eBay with an eager hand on my full purse. But alas, September’s dog ear is poking out from my Schnauzer calender, the end (of Summer) is nigh; and my wallet has been wrung dry. I’m back from Berlin, and a week on a canal boat round the ‘soft parts’ of backstreet Birmingham left me worse for wear. So now, dreading the return to a 9 to 5 norm, I look down at my shopping bags. Now, I’m not a shopaholic, all I bought was a few Cd’s, a T-shirt and some vintage finds; but all my money is GONE!

Not to worry, because this is my holiday scrapbook. Now I have souvenirs of a great Summer, and there’s no forgetting the ‘struggling musician’s camp out’  by the Schönefeld U-Bahn when I can look down to my ‘You are leaving the American Sector’ t-Shirt (in reference to the Berlin wall).

So here’s to the Summer’s past, the Summer’s to come, and the Summer departing, the Summer of Music.

All the Cd’s I bought, clockwise from left,

  • Muse – Absolution                                                                      I adore Roy Orbision, wanna know why?
  • Ludovico Einaudi – Nightbook                                                   Because he drove all night! If you don’t know
  • Little Green Cars – Absolute Zero                                              I’m going on about, the video’s down below.
  • The Real Elvis Ultimate Collection
  • Of Monsters And Men – My Head Is And Animal
