Captain Beefheart just died


Recommended Posts

I have very happy memories of a boozy Christmas in 1998 at a friend's house in Twickenham. The food was excellent, and somehow we worked our way through 3 bottle of champagne, 6 bottles of red, a bottle of port plus a few 'liveners'. The thought makes me wince now, but at the time it was probably one of the most marvellous days I've spent on this planet.

The host had excellent cooking skills and very eccentric music tastes. I remember hearing Captain Beefheart for the first time through a fug of alcohol, and thinking how amazing he truly was (I was only 23 at the time).

Cheers Captain Beefheart - you helped make it a great day :)-D

    • When I watch the clouds from my window they quite often appear like very slow-moving lines of vehicles on a multi-lane highway, gradually edging forward. So I was rather doubtful when I just now saw them creep forward a very small amount, pause a short while, and then make a small reverse, more or less back to the point they'd advanced from.  Another pause, and then the same repeated.  And again and again.   More perhaps like a small moored boat, being blown by the wind.  I don't at this moment remember seeing anything quite like that before, at least for it to seem so memorable, though possibly i have, and forgotten. I doubt it's peculiar to Dulwich, but Dulwich is where I happen to be, and it is nature.  So hello clouds.
