Erith on a Sunday afternoon and Pakistani Prog Rock.
My second posting of the weekend. Wonders will never cease. I took a stroll around town and took a few photos of the jetty behind Morrison's car park - according to Wikipedia, it is the longest pier on the River Thames. Click on any photograph for a larger version.
This weeks' whinge is very specific; web sites that don't allow you to view their content before signing up - FaceBook is a prime contender. It is like being in W.H Smith and not being allowed to flick through a magazine before buying it - how do you know if you want to participate if you have not got an idea of the contents? On top of that, you get asked for personal details. I know several of my friends and work colleagues have signed up with FaceBook, but I am buggered if I will.
Thanks to Alan and Debbie I will be seeing Rush at Wembley Arena in October with them.
Whilst the great unwashed have been thumbing though the final Barry Rotter pot boiler (I have a vision of many furrowed brows and tongues poking out the side of mouths), I have just finished reading a rather more demanding novel called Altered Carbon; a really high concept sci fi detective story that could well be made into a movie as big as The Matrix.
Isn't the World Wide Web a wonderful thing? I was surfing around last night, and came across the website of a Pakistani Prog Rock band called Mizraab - you can hear one of their tracks here; I have not got a clue what they are singing about, but it sounds good to me. Check out a couple of their videos below.
