This IS me (by schwitters)Default

"Have you read Don Quixote?" "I've practically lived it."

I've remembered what I left out of my Favourite Books list: Don Quixote. A shocking omission, as it comes at least second or third in my affections and the ending always reduces me to tears.

The reason I remembered is I've just been e-mailing the Guardian to complain about a cartoon in which Cervantes is shown writing with his left hand - which he lost at the Battle of Lepanto before his literary career really took off. Need to get out more? Moi?

Meanwhile on Planet Dilbert, there are so many people I want to say this to.

verlaine is at it again

'Your meme, should you choose to accept it, is to rank the following bands in order, from COULDN'T LIVE WITHOUT to COULDN'T CARE LESS. To add value to this process, you must also add one band to the list, and remove one band from the list, before passing the meme on (including these instructions).'

My list:
  • The Doors
  • REM
  • Pink Floyd
  • The Beatles
  • Nirvana
  • The Smiths
  • Guns 'n' Roses
  • The Sex Pistols
  • The Red Hot Chilli Peppers
  • Radiohead

(To be honest, if it were possible I'd rank everything after the first four equal tenth.)
