I really like thunderstorms when it’s not the middle of the night. We had a really good one while I was sitting reading this evening. The book I’m reading now is Bowie┬áby Marc Spitz and it’s very interesting if one is interested in David Bowie as I apparently am. In other music news, R.E.M., one of my favourite bands, decided today to call it quits. I’ve rather liked their last few albums which puts me in something of a minority amongst R.E.M. fans, I think. In any case, it’s good that they decided to end it quietly rather than having somebody die or have a huge public slagging match or something.
