Rain - 21.02.2022

   video  music

It's hard to say anything new about the Beatles. But f*** me, even their B sides were perfect. I get such a huge rush of nostalgia listening to the fab four. Rain was released in May 1966, a period of change for the Beatles. Soon to stop live performances, they are experimenting with eastern mysticism, LSD, and cutting edge studio techniques.

Lasham, Weston Patrick, and Upton Grey yesterday. An idyllic walk in perfect late spring weather.

Danny - a YouTube Sensation - 29.04.2021


YouTube constantly throws up interesting, niche and quirky content. Danny seems to be the current flavour of the month. Dive into his channel, settle down with him and his portable table and chair, and savour the northern charm and culinary excellence which runs though all his videos. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm...

If you watched this, now imagine Danny taking his table and chair abroad. India, USA, Japan, France - the possibilities are endless. Please do, Danny, once we are able to travel again.

Elizabeth Cotten has a fascinating backstory. Just one detail: the youngest of five children, her parents never named her, just calling her "Li'l Sis". She chose her own name when the teacher asked her name on her first day at school.
