Comment:

for the ever-lovable bill, the very essence of campness, silliness, and diamond fetishes. he's moving to melbourne next week and had a dinner party last night as a "farewell". i made this tape as a little present. in retrospect...i should of made radiohead more digestable for him by slotting it between marilyn and al... his music taste rarely passes the 60's. getting him to adore rufus wainwright took a long time. but, i try! this tape's perhaps a little too sentimental and crappy with a lot of bizarre "remember when we were dancing to this..." kind of stories attached (in particular diamonds are forever, k-jee, felicia, you're the top [albeit the ethel merman version!] and me and my gal) but i think he'll like it. title from one of my favourite childhood books "City Mouse and Country Mouse"...i wonder if my parents bought that for me in a small attempt to get one of their children to stay on the farm. it would appear they failed. in other news...i let ari cut of practically all my hair, i'm not quite sure if i like this arrangement yet, but i love not having to brush my hair in the morning!

Nice stuff, as always, m'dear. I'm particularly partial to that Rufus tune.

Cool! Is "???" an actual band or just an indication that you don't know who the artist is? So many new bands are coming up with unusual names these days, like +/-
