gonna pitch a wang dang doodle

So the other day I finished writing my pitch for doing a book in the 33 1/3 series. These are the little pocket books written about a particular album and I've submitted a pitch for The Flaming Lips - The Soft Bulletin. I'll find out sometime in January whether I'm one of the people commissioned to do a book, and if I'm successful then there's the small matter of researching it, interviewing people and writing 30,000 words. The book would be published in 2007, or more likely 2008.

Another themed CD swap took place at Gappy Tooth last night. This time all the song titles had to feature a town or city. Mine was titled 'Highway To Hull' and featured a Multimap cover and the directions from Oxford to Hull. The design was all Helen's idea! Although Dan wasn't there (his probably isn't finished anyway!) I did receive 'Urbie Goes Bananas' from Richard (in real Ordnance Survey map packaging!), 'Boroughs In Arms' from Alastair and 'Tinseltownship Rebellion' from Mark. I may post their tracklistings later, but for now here's mine....
