Over at Spurious, Lars is listening to Jandek:

Sometimes I think there's nothing I want to hear except for Jandek and nothing I want to think about except for Jandek. Everything else is pointless, non-essential. I listen to Comets on Fire and Espers and Boris and all that sort of thing. It's good, all good, but not essential. I listen to Mark Kozelek, which is nearly essential, and Bill Callahan and Michael Head - all very good, close to essential, but not quite essential. But you have to be careful with the essential, not to come too close to it. You need distance. You need time and space set aside. Sit down on the sofa. Do nothing else. Listen to nothing. Just Jandek. Just that: Jandek.

Me? I'm listening to Jim Fox's beautiful the city the wind swept away (Cold Blue Music). Oh, and the latest Do Make Say Think album which is pretty special too.

    I've just ordered that Jim Fox record -s ounds grand, ta. What do you think of the latest Stars of the Lid?

  2. Hi Matt,

    I love SotL, but I've not heard the latest ... I'll no doubt invest soon.

    The Jim Fox is lovely. Indeed, I've not been disappointed with anything on the Cold Blue Music label and I've got 20-odd CDs ...


  3. I apologies for my delay renopsd due to lot of responsibilities in this periodI would like to make same short comment on World Bank report ,related to state land government and its role in farmland policyPr accession countries are facing ( like Macedonia) with lot of problems in the field of foreign investments and the need of fast industrial development, on the other hand the most attractive and easy develop areas are the one with the highest quality land that should be destroyed due to desired fast industrial development of these underdeveloped countries,I am suggesting that an International fond for helping preserving the most quality land in this countries ( money used for investing in infrastructure) will be used for replacing the attractive land with less attractive and more expensive for construction. Another comment is related to land management experts developed in the last 10 years(with in Pr accession countries, or other). My opinion is that, they should be more protected and supported with same general and strong recommendations via FAO or other international institutions , in the manner that they will receive proper working conditions , independent performance and adequate salary in order to remain working in institutions since they are the most important link in proper land management and have influence in decision makers and policy decisions related to land management.
