Thanks to @books.bags.burgers for these three tags! #bookishcolor (green), #girloncover & #openbook . This tag made me realise how few books I have with women on the cover! 😳
If you're in Australia, like me, and are celebrating Father's Day, I hope you're having a great day! Our little girl is 9 months old, so it's my awesome husband's first Father's Day this year! 💕 #booktags#fathersday#greenbooks
More Zurich pick-ups. Not a fan of bootlegs but I travelled to a place called Olten which is nearly an hour each way to a record store to find Cro-mags "Age Of Quarrel" sitting on the shelf at a quarter of the price of an original, sorry! @johnjosephcromag the clerk assured me it was a "reissue" but he knows the deal. Anyway it's a clear, hand numbered 210 out of 500 and there's not much info on it so if anyone can tell me more I'd be keen. @alfredge.vgn maybe? Also a blue @descendents "All" album which I might be most stoked on, an O.G Liveage and Trailblazer and Nursery Crimes, a @judge_nyhc reissue because it was there and Slipknot (rev band, not masked band) record store day reissue. Yikes. #cromags#judge#descendents#questforall#nurserycrimes#slipknot#revelationrecords#sst#vinyl#zürich#basel#recordstoreday
Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde is a brilliant romp into a world where the nursery rhymes are the norm and getting your investigation printed is more important than solving it quickly. Personally I adore this book and Jasper Fforde is my favourite author becuase of the world he creates and the interactions between the characters as a result.
Both Jack Spratt and Mary Mary are interesting enough characters but the real star is the general world the story takes place in And the small reference to other parts of the world. I especially like the idea of Sherlock and miss Marple being real people who just have good stories. I also loved the idea of certain investigation methods being rejected for not making good prose.
Before each chapter this book has a small extract from a piece of literature found within the story. These aren't important to the plot (I skipped them the first time I read this book) though they are interesting and give more background to the characters and settings in the story. These are part of what makes the literary style so unique and fun and is a staple to his writing. After this story I am looking forward to revisiting the sequel sometime shortly.
Well @descendents went off last night. Played for about an 1hr and 40mins with 2 encores. Absolute weapons. So tight and just 1 after the other. I wish I could see the set list on paper, it was ALL the songs I wanted to hear. So stoked. Nursery Crimes were fantastic as well and we even got Bill Gibson from The Eastern Dark in their set at one point playing Johnny and Dee Dee. Mind blown. Amazing night. I'll post some more footage later. #descendents#hypercaffiumspazzinate#tour#2017#sydney#nurserycrimes#theeasterndark
