Sunday Sessions #7 (and a brief goals/reading update)

Another Sunday is here, and so I'm going to share with you the music I've been listening to most in the past week. We have another tie, a three-way tie matter of fact, this week. The songs are:









  • The Cult, "Love Removal Machine" - maaaaan I love this band. I've always got different favourites at any given time, but this is definitely a track that's always up there!
  • Blue Öyster Cult, "Astronomy" - I was listening to this song one day while heading off to see a man about a skin cancer, and though I'd heard it before it was only this time that it struck me that I loved it. Particularly the ouuuutro.
  • Aphex Twin, "Xtal" - this band is one that I've not yet managed to grow to completely love, probably due to their sometimes horribly creepy video clips (but if you want to write horror they're probably a good place to look. haha)...but this song is beautiful.

So that's it for another Sunday Session. Happy listening!

Before I go, I want to share a quick update about my weekly goals. I've achieved them, but only just! And it's already time for another week to begin! In other news, I finished reading a book about a library cat in Iowa (titled Dewey, you may have heard of it), and now I'm reading a Dave Grohl biography. What's with me and the non-fiction, you ask? Well, the cat book was thrust upon me by a work colleague, so I felt obligated (but I did love the book, don't worry), and the other (Davey boy) was a Christmas gift from my brother and his wife, sent all the way from North America, so again I felt obligated (luckily I totally love Dave Grohl).

How are you?

  2. Meeting goals? If I've met my goals then that must mean I've not set them appropriately.

  5. Have not heard of Aphex Twin. I have liked what I've heard from The Cult, but not real familiar with the music. Big fan of Blue Oyster Cult. I saw them in concert at the University of Tennessee in the early 70s shortly after they had released their first album. They played in the University Center Ballroom and were a great band.

    Goals? What goals?

    1. That would have been a great show! They're still playing nowadays apparently. not sure of the line-up though. I'd love to see them, anyway.

    As for the music... "needs more cowbell" :-)

    1. I'm more into fiction, but there are some really interesting people out there so I can see the appeal of memoirs. Sometimes it's like reading fiction anyway, the things some people have gone through ;)

  11. Well done on hitting your goals! And I HAVE heard Dewey's story--NPR did several features on him when the book came out. I love the idea of a library cat.

  12. Sounds like your goals are just perfect - obtainable, but a challenge!

  13. Thanks everyone - I actually realised I lied. I did not achieve every goal, as I missed my yoga class. haha. Oh well...so close.
