    Not been doing too much art lately. Certainly not to the standards seen round here. Amazing stuff. I really need to pick it up and start sketching.
    Anyway, really looking forward to the new Grayson Perry Art Club tonight on C4.
    Anyone else watching?

    This is my "set up".
    I hardly used the (expensive) Tonar Wetgoat brush.
    The 2 black records airers were purchased from Analogue Seduction.
    The most important tool is my paint pad (brand "Monarch" iirc, off Homebase) and those "superior" micro-fibre towels (Amazon).
    The rack has been a big improvement (6 slots) too compared to having just those 2 airers.

    I'm a total convert to cleaning my records and won't play nowadays a second-hand record unless it's been cleaned.

    3. Stan Getz and Joao Gilberto "Getz/Gilberto"

    Which nation is gonna say "your tunnel, your shit" first?

    I'm sad to see many of things I could enjoy and were real life experiences taken away, stuff like Erasmus, Free Movement, Eye and Mind opening overseas Travel. Now it's all building walls, having the right paperwork, paying more from everything. How depressing

    Someone near me is selling a nice pair of Wharfedale 9.1.
    Are they likely to be an "upgrade" over my B&W DM601 S2 ?
    If anything the 601s are fine but could do with more bass. Although could be down to current positioning.

    I spent some of my Christmas lay-off cleaning vinyls. Very satisfying. And very efficient at getting rid of clicks and pops.
    And once cleaned up the look of a shiny record is just 👌

    I sold on ebay a car exhaust (backboxes) to a chap in NI.
    What are the chances of the large parcels being stuck or returned to me in London?
