My Music

Friday, 26 March 2010


I leave my house every day to go for a long walk, which serves multiple purposes. Running the bar for thirty years meant that I wasn't leaving the village other than to do the necessaries such as the weekly shopping, now I don't have to find the time, I have it in abundance; I go off in my car, park it and walk. The other day, less than ten miles from here I came across a manor house with three lakes that I didn't know existed, and on walking past it a huge hare ran towards me before going through a hedge, regretfully I was too slow to capture it on photo. I found an old moss covered fountain in the middle of a forest that to my surprise had vases of fresh flowers (I think it may have something to do with wartime executions), otherwise I've followed the Nantes > Brest Canal and a feeder canal to old mineworkings, not iron & coal as in the valleys of South Wales, but silver & lead, originating from pre- Roman times. Visiting the chateau of Trevarez and walking around the woods & park with its lake took me back to my school days at Cyfarthfa Castle, the former home of the Crawshay family, ironmasters of Merthyr Tydfil, one of whom, Robert Thompson Crawshay, was buried beneath a granite slab which can be seen at Vaynor Churchyard, on which is engraved 'God Forgive Me'. I mentioned multiple purposes; it gets me out of the house and into the fresh air, it brings my blood sugar level down so that I am not dependant on insulin injections or tablets, it's bringing my whole body back to form and it gives me something to write about so there is always something going on that I don't dwell on my current situation; just now my portrait fell off the wall and smashed on the floor. Tomorrow night I aim to go to the fest-noz (evening folk dancing) in St. Rivoal in support of their bi-lingual school while I can still get out of the village; I can't carry on like this as ironically petrol is necessary to go on my walks and continue taking my photos. The pub money will not be touched, that's a different a/c. P.S. Thanks to my intermittent neighbours from Ystrad Mynach for bringing me sustenance from Cymru/Wales the other day.

Re: The Most Insanely Expensive Homes On The Market (PHOTOS)


The Most Expensive Homes On Zillow (PHOTOS)

March 19, 2010
If you're in the market for a home with, say, a 16-car garage or feel that you absolutely need 19 fireplaces, you're in the right place.

More likely, you'll just want to gawk at these incredibly expensive homes provided by the folks at the real estate website Zillow. All priced above $50 million, these homes are hard to even fathom -- more than one, in fact, comes with a private golf course.

For more on these homes, head to Zillow's massive database of real estate listings and price information. Or, start saving for the monthly payments on these palaces -- the mortgages will run you a couple hundred thousand dollars a month.

Re: The Most Inappropriate Vanity Plates Of All Time (PHOTOS)




The Most Inappropriate Vanity Plates Of All Time (PHOTOS)

March 19, 2010
Vanity plates are inherently lame. But for some people, that's not enough. Those people feel the need to take their status of "I'm the worst" to whole new levels and make their license plates inappropriate, too. So it's only right that we collect the most offensive ones out there as a public service to you. If you see any of these cars around, feel free to give 'em a little love tap at the next traffic light.

"A 13 track joyride, it hurts psychedelia, White Album Beatles, glam-rock, electro, barbershop, tropicalia, chamber pop and post-rock into the mix. The result is a berserk and brilliant record"

"Goodbye Falkenburg is an utterly entertaining trip" MOJO

"cut from the same gonzoid pop cloth as Super Furry Animals, full of psych rock & Beatles soaked harmonies" Q MAGAZINE

"colliery band parps, early Of-Montreal jangle, pastoral melancholy and what sounds like Beirut captaining a pirate ship maintain their standing as purveyors of mighty fine singles" NME

"a wilfully zany debut with mischievous spirit that's hard to dislike" UNCUT

"Goodbye Falkenberg is an off-kilter masterpiece, irreverent, unadulterated and well worth a listen". DROWNED IN SOUND

"a hugely enjoyable Fireworks display of ideas" ARTROCKER

"Race Horses have a talent for multi coloured gonzoid pop that's as ambitious as it is catchy" METRO

"Wholly original and genuinely exciting"

"Exuberant & upbeat – an album to make you smile" BIG ISSUE

"Goodbye Falkenberg is a startlingly good first impression"

'Goodbye Falkenburg', the quartet prove that they are quite versatile, writing brilliant pop songs with plenty of quirkiness included. The future looks bright for this lot, make no mistake.

"With darkly humorous lyrics, handclaps galore, huge orchestral arrangements and choral parts – debut album Goodbye Falkenburg is sure to be a highlight of the year"

Please check out; for regular tour blogs and important info (e.g. which race horses member can eat the most cream eggs! etc)
