Check it out

Hows this sexy new template? Displaying a rate streak of OCD, I've labeled the last few months worth of posts, for your pleasure. Although now I'm worried I'm going to drive myself to think inside one of those labels for all new posts. Ah the tension of a mind that loves order and categories yet also craves the off-beat, the whimsical and the passionate. Pisces, eh?

This week I've picked up the weighty tome sent to Biz by his folks, Michael Palin's Diaries from 1969-1979 (The Python Years)*. I'm quite enjoying his thoughtful, descriptive and sometimes insightful musings on "what fills his days". When all strung together (and heavily edited) nearly 30 years down the track, it make a compelling narrative. Almost inspires one to keep a real true diary, rather than a motley collection of ramblings and links to the Sydney Morning Herald. Although maybe if I keep up with the technology and keep the page nicely archived, there will be a nice juicy publishing deal in it. In 2030.

*Nb, Betty Sue the Tariq Ali/John Ronson essay is quietly forming - one of these days it will make it onto booklub

Mmm-mmmmm, love the tags. I want 'em on mine too, am still figuring out how to hack the template so's I can keep my colour scheme and graphics.

By the way, your momus link is broken :)

Hi there! When I first went to beta the tags function appeared and you could start adding them to new posts. If you go to "page elements" it lets you save the template as is, while you mess around with the new features, so you can always go back to it.

Where is a post on In Zid (NZ, as the locals would say it)? A photo or two?

Also, I just noticed you have tag for Nick Cave. Groupie!

Heheh. I was wondering when someone would comment on that. I laughed my arse on when I did a search on "Nick Cave" and 7 posts came up - of course he needs his own tag. I just hope he appreciates the level of dedication.

Yep - 'n Zud photos are on their way - my companion has nicked off with the camera for a bit, but soon.

I heard Nick Cave has a 'I Heart Bee Sharp' tag on his blog, cos he writes about you so much.

I'm reading Michael Palin's diaries also - my folks gave it to C-chan for christmas. It is compelling, isn't it?
