Book Hunt! #2

I found a small selection of books from Tallaght library in Dublin on Tuseday, and here they are:

Tallaght books 25-8-2015

From top:

Chick Ink: 40 Stories of Tattoos And The Women Who Wear Them – Karen L Hudson

Into The Black: The Inside Story Of Metallica (1991-2014) – Paul Brannigan & Ian Winwood (turns out there is a previous book, Birth School Metallica Death, which I will have to track down)

Mad Men & Bad Men: What Happened When British Politics Met Advertising – Sam Delaney

Fashion On The Ration – Julie Summers

Complementary Medicine For Dummies – Jacqueline Young

The Kitchen Diaries – Nigel Slater

The Kitchen Diaries II – Nigel Slater

I’m happy with this bunch, particularly seeing as I had been looking for The Kitchen Diaries (both volumes) for some time. Can’t wait to get stuck in!

Songs that make me think of summer #2

My song choice this time is School’s Out by Alice Cooper. While I never actually heard this song on the last day of school (I wasn’t born in the 1970s, but nevertheless….), it makes me think of summer because there is a sense of freedom about the song; a certain defiance or anarchy. I love the song because of its rebellious tone.

Can’t beat a bit of classic rock! \m/

Songs that make me think of summer #1

Okay, I’m gonna change tack slightly and I will start a series of posts entitled “Songs that make me think of summer.” For the inaugural post, my chosen song is Sweet Child O’ Mine by the classic line-up of Guns N Roses. Personally, I don’t take much notice of what a certain Axl Rose does these days….and it ain’t Guns N Roses from what I see….anyway, here we go!

For me, this says summer when I hear it, and also the album Appetite For Destruction was released in July 1987. Enjoy! \m/
