"Fishing with John"

Tuesday 08 January 2008 at 10:05 am My father is a keen fisherman, but I most definitely am not. While I could probably deal with sitting on a river bank with a fishing rod in my hand, I'm pretty sure the problems would arise if I actually happened to catch something. The trouble required for transforming the freshly-caught fish into an edible dish would be just too overwhelming for me. And then there are all those other forms of fishing, like fish trapping, net fishing, fly fishing, trawling and so on - most of which would probably bore me to oblivion.

Despite (or because?) of all that, the fishing documentary series "Fishing with John" turned out to be the most awesome thing I've seen for a while (and amazingly, Kasia loved it too!). (more)

Soulsavers - It's Not How Far You Fall, It's the Way You Land

The best album of 2007

Tuesday 08 January 2008 at 08:57 am SoulsaversIn my opinion the best music album of 2007 was the "It's Not How Far You Fall, It's the Way You Land" by Soulsavers. All songs last several listenings, and about half get better each time. Opens with a great, rusty, simple-yet-compelling Revival, keeps hooked through the entire album, finishes with an excellent cover of No Expectations by the Rolling Stones.

Brilliant music full of remorse and longing for revival, grasping a whiskey bottle. Awesome vocals of Mark Lanegan. The influence of Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan and Velvet Underground shine through.

There's a music video of "Revival" at YouTube and their MySpace has several samples.
