P.s. if anyone's interested, here are my top 828 songs (in alphabetical order). I know it's a strange number, but they're all the ones in my record collection that got a star. The funny thing is, when I play them on random selection, I still feel that there's not enough of them but that's okay. We may be screwing up our planet but some of us have produced the most wonderful music; that's something to treasure.

This has really got nothing to do with writing but I still enjoy watching this video even a year on from when I first saw it.
About a year ago, I wanted a travel guitar to take with me on holiday and to music festivals. I had had a brief look the previous summer when I’d been to a music festival. There were several choices available; a Taylor Big Baby, an Ozark travel guitar and a Cort Earth-Mini. I tried them all.
