Footrot Flats

Not sure if anyone is familiar with Footrot Flats.... I used to love it and read the books as a kid.  My Aunty had a selection the books at her place, and I remember I could spend hours thumbing through their pages whenever I visited.  Somehow I ended up with those books, and I came across them whilst cleaning up the storage room the other day.  These two in particular stuck vividly in my memory.  I can remember exactly where and how I was when I first read these.

Ah... nostalgia.

Kurt Vile - Wakin on a Pretty Daze

This is the definition of late night lights down earphones listening.

Perfect for that late night drive home through the rain where you look through the droplets on your car windscreen at the people wandering about your city and wonder whether they are as lonely as you are. That's about the time you decide that you are going to paint more.

Some pretty sweet wah-wah-infused noodling in that guitar solo.

Impossible things


“I can’t believe THAT!” said Alice.

"Can’t you?” said the Queen in a pitying tone. 

“Try again: draw a long breath, and shut your eyes.”

Alice laughed. “There’s no use trying,” she said, “one can’t believe impossible things.”

"I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why sometimes I believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast!”
