Peter Risdon (ex of Freeborn John) has moved aptly named site, "Peter Risdon, Weblog"(note to self: update blogroll). Also, I was shocked to notice that neither of my regular reads Mick Hartley nor Adam Holland are on my blogroll (note to self: sort it out). I am very pleased to be included in the small but perfectly formed blogroll of James Horrox, possibly the coolest list of websites I've ever been included him (note to self: reciprocate). From his tweetage, this gem (Bob Black attacking Chomsky, among others), which might get a post of its own one day (note to self: write that post, cherrypicking the bits I agree with and leaving out the bits I don't). I've also been reading some of the posts at Obliged To Offend, which sits somewhat to the Harryist side of me but which I plan to keep reading (note to self: think about adding to blogroll).

From LGF, who sez:
This is a rare 1976 video of Keith Jarrett’s European quartet, with Jan Garbarek (sax), Palle Danielsson (bass), and Jon Christensen (drums), playing the abstract yet oddly lyrical tune “Mandala,” from the absolutely exquisite album My Song. (iTunes Store.)
