I've been meaning for ages to add alernativeSE4 to the blogroll, highly recommended to my local readers.
Over at Bob's Beats, the first and last EP I bought, and my obituary for Doc Watson.
To add to the "the things 'they' say about me" category: "Bob’s a strange kind of animal. I find him quite creepy." - Gert
Stuff I've read on-line recently: An open letter to Stop the War about Syria; on Britain's last anti-Jewish riots; Ben White v Howard Jacobson; on the tea party, redistribution and populism; what Hitchens left behind; Boris Johnson's ex-wife and her engagement of Muslims; Jenny Tonge's rhetoric and its reporting; +972 on the South Tel Aviv anti-migrant pogroms and their aftermath; Scottish "Socialists" and the seven quid pint and the perversion of science and the chavification of Scotland's alcohol laws; Tony Blair's moral decline; the Idelsohn Society and the problem of cultural reclamation; and academics duelling about Jews, the left and Zionism.
