Peter, you've lost the news!

Babytime has kept me away from blogger (and vermouth) for some time. And in the interim there have been sad happenings.

Captain Beefheart is dead. He'd suffered from MS for some time, yet had still been producing (art, rather than music). I know that many people consider Trout Mask Replica to be basically bonkers, and unlistenable, but I think it's a work of utter genius, and, more importantly, extremely enjoyable.

and the man who inspired this and this and this is dead, too.

Another great idea!

"The plans could see addicts lose benefits if they do not co-operate. "

I can see absolutely no drawbacks with inflicting further poverty on people addicted to expensive, illegal drugs. I am a Tory Minister.
