Goodbye Holger

I found out yesterday that Holger Czukay died on the 5th of this month. It is so sad. I have been listening to his music and collaborations for over 30 years now. Some time ago I went to see him live at the Roundhouse in Camden. It was a great show. He had so much energy. It was such a fun show.

I will be listening to his music over the next few days and enjoying it, remembering what an incredible innovator he was, and how he influenced so many creative people. He’ll be missed by many. He will be missed by me.

This arrived the other day. Beautiful packaging and it’s a signed copy. I need to really listen to it properly though and give it some dedicated time.

Very sad news, Sylvia Anderson dies aged 88

The voice of Lady Penelope in the Thunderbirds. She was excellent and a part of the team that brought us so many amazing things like Thunderbirds, Stingray, UFO, Space 1999. She will be missed but has left such a legacy. All the more reason to look forward to the three new episodes of Thunderbirds coming soon.

Remembering Shackleton and the Endurance

I really enjoyed the dramatisation with Kenneth Brannagh some years ago. I think I’ve watched it a couple of times now and the story is one that I find quite inspiring. So it was nice to see these commemorative stamps. At some point I’d like to find out a bit more about him and his other expeditions. One day I’ll do that.

That’s amazing, 19 years of Disquiet

It is a truly amazing thing that Disquiet has been going for 19 years now. I’m in awe. To maintain and develop such and amazing site for that long is a real achievement. I have to take my hat off to Marc for doing it.

Of course he has the best taste too, his choice of people to interview is impeccable! Of course I would say that, wouldn’t I!
