Tuesday Ten: 278: Camden Town

About eighteen years ago, while I was still reading Geography at King’s College London, the subject of my dissertation proposal came up. Read more “Tuesday Ten: 278: Camden Town”

Tuesday Ten: 189: Remembrance and War

While I’ve covered nuclear war (Tuesday Ten: 109), various other parts of past history (Tuesday Ten: 047), not to mention American Politics (Tuesday Ten: 056), I’ve never looked directly at war (although judging on my notes I’ve certainly looked at the idea in the past). And in this week of Remembrance Day, it is maybe time to do so at last in more detail. Read more “Tuesday Ten: 189: Remembrance and War”

Countdown: 1990s: Tracks: 200-181

And a look at the playlist pages may make you weep if you are looking for something different. Kerrang TV‘s playlist has vanished (leaving a blank page – perhaps they were embarrassed to mention that their playlist has remained effectively static for aeons), while Scuzz’s playlist has some stuff that really is rather tired. At least MTV2 make an effort to play something different every now and again – for the other channels each top 50 is a rehash of the last. Perhaps I’m just watching at the wrong times of the day. But when the likes of Headbangers Ball is at 0100 on a weeknight, what chance do I have? Read more “Tuesday Ten: 021: Overplayed Videos”
