  1. i left a comment over at musings. very humid here and of course we are covered with smoke haze every day. i am very much looking forward to autumn and winter. it will still be quite warm here right up til may or longer.


  2. Hey, Deb!

    How’s the weather in Melbourne? I never got back to you about the fires. Has the weather turned at all cooler? Here in New England, we had a week of spectacular sunny weather, cold but not at all unbearable. The sun is getting stronger and I’m looking forward to spring. Conversely, you must be anticipating the cool breezes of autumn.

    Ain’t it funny how time slips away… Oooo, a little Al Green crept in. Ah guess I’m in a romantic mood. 🙂

    I ended up writing a Morgan’s Musings post about the musical influences in my life and how I stumbled on Nick Cave and Blixa Bargeld: By Way of Tupelo and Stagger Lee

    Cheers & Love!

  3. i love tupelo. it is brilliant live. it just rumbles and rumbles with the under tow and climaxes with nick screaming “the sandmans murder”. love it. it was the video that re ignited my interest in nick (and the wonderful mr bargeld) after my break from the birthday party way back whenever.

      • ha ha. i never knew that. haven’t actually “read” the lyrics. so it must be muduhhhh. i am disappointed. i like murder better…… mind you i have prolly re written most of the lyrics to most songs i sing along to these days!

        thanks andrew. 🙂
