Again, nothing to report from the daylight hours, other than an uneventful trip to HMV which inspired me to search for more music by Peter Maxwell Davies but I found none within my price range...

Courtesy of Prog Rock Willie, the new 3CD live Dream Theater album was enjoyed...

I'm a sucker for stats...

In September, around 3.7 days worth of music (measured at an impossible 24 hrs per day) was added to the collection...

This compares very favourably with August, during which there was a bit of a download frenzy and almost nine days' worth of music was added...

In the first nine months of the year, the intake of physical discs is 65 below the same period in 2013, a fall of 17% - so, answers on a postcard please (or to the comments) as to how many discs I acquired in the first nine months of both 2013 and 2014?

First acquisition of the month was the Fela Kuti album which Brian Eno was talking about on the video I found last night, Fela Kuti's "Afrodisiac"...


Meanwhile, on telly, "Scott & Bailey" was enjoyed...

And that was about it...

Other than an attempt to plan a new trip, with Germany, France, Italy and England under consideration - nothing came of it though...

Lights out...

Highlight of the Day : New music...

382 in 2013, 317 in 2014.

Blimey, I thought I had a bad CD-buying habit!
