Sniff...sneeze...grrr. Damn cold...

As usual, every May brings with it the pre-summer cold, and no matter how hard I try at the moment I just can't get rid of it. Spent the day in bed reading trashy music mags (especially NME which just gets worse every week) and taking power naps. Watched the third episode in BBC's exceptionally good Soul Deep documentary. The focus tonight was Motown (and to a lesser extent Chess) and was packed with footage of Diana Ross making faces on 1960s TV shows. If only music television today had go-go dancers in sequinned dresses....sigh. Afterwards, BBC Four showed the fantastic Standing In The Shadows of Motown documentary. A damn fine night on the box indeed.

Major Leaguer stereo selections for this week

Maximo Park - Once, A Glimpse (from A Certain Trigger)
Gorillaz feat. MF Doom - November Has Come (from Demon Days, out May 23)
Common - Go! (from Be, our May 23)

Bless Your sick heart !!! Whenever I get a cold I send my hubby to the local Chinese Restaurant to get me some EggDrop Soup. For some reason the heat clears up my stuffy nose and helps me feel better. Hope you get better soon.
