All the Books We Can't Wait to Read in 2019

https://www.thrillist.com/entertainment/nation/best-books-of-2019

 

The Water Cure 

Written by: Sophie Mackintosh
Release date: January 8
Why we're excited: Book critics have been comparing this debut novel from British writer Sophie Mackintosh to The Handmaid's Tale. Its futuristic and fable-like story follows three sisters on a mysterious island after their father suddenly dies, and they and their mother grapple with his sadistic legacy and his claim that toxins are making the outside world uninhabitable. If want you want an escape from the horrors of day-to-day life right now, this isn't the book for you. If you're looking for a talented new writer's to take on the anger, anxiety, and trauma that comes from dealing our reality, in a surreal package, look no further.

Its always really cold in Chicago in the winter. Thing the temp gets down to -15c or so, I lived in Michigan for a couple of years as a kid and remember we got snow deeper than I was tall once.

Was only thinking yesterday how cold it was here in London but fuck we are lucky!

No animals dying thru heat, No torrents of rain, no hurricanes, no tsunamis, no rivers freezing over! But yet if we get any deviation in weather conditions we whine,bitch,moan about it. Always have and suppose always will.

But every fuckin year the country grinds to a halt for little shit like wet leaves on the railway line or no grit on the road when they know sodding well that there might be snow at sometime but they have no grit to lay!!

Rant over!

HMV reveals which 27 stores have closed after sale to Canadian music boss

https://www.theguardian.com/business/2019/feb/05/hmv-bought-doug-putman-stores-jobs

With less and less CDs and vinyl being bought something had to snap but I never thought I'd see the day that a big chain like HMV having to seel some of their stores. Specially the one on Oxford Street. Its a national treasure.

Its like tower records when that shut down.

 

I phoned the manager of the Ox St branch today and asked him if I could spend a night going thru his old 45 stock in the basement or wherever they keep them. I told him about my collecting and  said if I found owt good I'd keep them and give him 1/2 the current value for them.

He goes whats stopping him from looking himself. So I asked him if he knew what to look for! He said probably not but wouldn't let me look at them. Bot even for a couple of hours with an employee with me!!

The shops been there since 1921 there must be a ton of old dusty boxes full of 45s

Would be like being in heaven!

RIP Emiliano Sala (1990-2019), such a tragic way to lose your life, body found in the plane wreckage has been identified as Sala's, life is too short. RIP to the pilot David Abbotson who also ended up losing his life in this tragic accident, there needs to be serious and torough aircraft revisions in the future to avoid tragedies like this, not so long ago it was the Chapecoense team that met their fate because of lack of fuel in the plane, there are some things i just can't understand, the staff of airport have one job and it is to guarantee the safety of the pilots and passangers. :(
