Day 463 – World’s gone mad

The world’s gone mad.
I have tried to swim against the tide, but I’ve given up and now I’m just drifting along with the rest of them.

Like some sort of… Passenger.

Perhaps surprisingly, this is the fourth best rendition of this song that I have ever heard. But that’s only because I have only heard four versions. Obviously, the correct order is:

  1. REM – (the Jools Holland version)
  2. Iggy Pop
  3. Siouxsie and the Banshees
  4. This one. Although if you have any other suggestions, they will almost certainly slot in above The Hoff.

Wow. So leathery.

Back and foot

It’s like foot and mouth, except more less serious.

Meh. I’ve hurt my back shifting furniture around. I’ve always had back problems, but I thought they were behind me (no pun intended), because I’ve been working really hard on my core muscles and I feel fitter and more protected than ever.

Not so, it seems.

Add to that the f****** bee sting from the weekend, which has now swelled up like a swollen thing on my foot. Itchy, hot. Irritating.

Have some Iggy Pop. His recent Maida Vale BBC Radio 6 Music session.

I love this, and I am dying to find it on Spotify.
Also, I hope I am still rocking at 72 years old.
Just being able to walk again in 72 hours would be a start.

And: Leron Thomas on trumpet. Beautifully understated, but hugely important.

Tramadol? I’m tempted…
