Soon be Christmas...the Quality Street tin's virtually empty already...only the toxic strawberry ones left...it's a true mark of the proletariat to have a box of QS and not some posh selection from Hotel Chocolat or Waitrose, innit? The Hotel Chocolat selection is unopened...saving it for...I dunno what. The fact that both are in the flat prove that I'm still in touch with my roots yet have also broken free of their restraints and aspired to something more refined, don't you think?

Here's some music. The clip features Burt Bacharach, who wrote it, tinkling the organ. It's not a cheery Christmas tune but...you know...it is brilliant...
If you still need to buy a Christmas present for the one you love (bit late, isn't it?) I recommend Roxy - The Band That Invented An Era by Michael Bracewell, which I only recently started reading. Damned good if you're interested in the roots of the Pop Art scene in the UK, the Richard Hamilton / Bryan Ferry connection and all that. Bracewell's a smart cookie and writes well.
