I've been listening to his Blips. Well three of them, it said Mozart isn't available.
I got an irksome error message using the link from Twitter, but it plays fine for me on Blip's site. An excellent piece.
I've checked the FAQ it says that can happen if something happens to where the track is hosted like it can disappear if the site's down so it won't play.
Here's the Wilde poster.
There it is!
I wonder what my Fluffettes are up to . . .
I'd forgotten how many books he has, it is
like on Beauty and the Beast.
I'd forgotten too!
It reminds me of this second hand bookshop I went to in Wigtown, Scotland where they had books everywhere, in every nook and cranny, on the stairs, in towering piles all over the floor.
I was too busy drooling over the number of books. I'm the kind of saddo who get's too excited in libraries and bookshops. I just wanna stay forever reading.
You're not sad at all, amyl. I'm the same, I love discovering a new library and the excitement of the first look around. : ]
Aww. You're so kind Soph. *huggles*
Lol, that even looks like a library style book cart to the right of him too.
That's what I was thinking. It makes it look even more like a library.
You're not sad amy at all. I have a vastly growing pile of books (a meagre collection comparitively) and I'm so interested to read all of them I get frustrated that I can't start reading them all at once! I think ambition to read shows the ambition for acquisition of knowledge. And no one (at least not here) is going to begrudge anyone that *grins*.
That's true. Acquisiton of knowledge is always good. I don't understand people who just stop learning and become static and stagnant and don't care anymore. Like when they leave education they think it no longer matters and was only ever there as a means to an end rather than for the fun and joy it can be.
I get frustrated too. I want to read everything at once. I can get very indecisive too like at the moment there's so many books I want to start reading I haven't a clue which to read next. I have a few on the go already.
I love finding new bookshops and librarys too - there's a lovely second hand bookshop that's just opened near where I live with huge roof-high shelves and little corners where you can go and sit - it also smells lovely in there, that old musty book smell (I mentioned this to someone once and they looked at me as if it were entirely ridiculous. It may well be, but anyway...).
Librarys are, as Stephen himself said on Room 101, divine.
I'm so jealous of you having a place like that. In Huddersfield our bookshops are limited to two Waterstones (one's diddysized, the other used to be Ottakers and is so much better), a WHSmith (pfft) and a relatively new Oxfam Books (yay) - oh my god I can't walk past Oxfam Books without going in and coming out with armfuls of books. :-// See I just wanna read everything! I particularly appreciate the psychology/sociology section as there's fuck all of these type of books anywhere else bar the university. mmm I love the musty smell of old books too.
Assuming direct control...
