I found a small selection of books from Tallaght library in Dublin on Tuseday, and here they are:
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!
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/
I came across a discussion on LinkedIn recently about quotes that have inspired you – and you were encouraged to add your own. I chose this one because it was very true for me. I don’t wish to be passive in life.
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/
