Sometimes I have daydreams that go on for too long. A little self deprecation now and again never did anyone any harm, ever, probably. Not that that could be easily said about Mark E Smith, strange and sad to hear he's gone at only 60. I wonder if this is the end of the end for the Fall or if some kind of odd, unexpected resurrection or second coming will follow? A truculent man of many surprises.
Guitar surgery opened up today. One major but minor consultation requiring little special effort. Replacing the machine heads on my old workhorse Yamaha acoustic with some randoms I found in the tool box, tightening up the truss rod and putting on new, slightly heavier strings. First thoughts are that it's actually a lot better for all of that, staying in tune, slightly improved action and easier to play.
