Reading, Listening, Watching  
Reading: Back to End of the World Blues by Jon Courtenay Grimwood. This continues to be an intriguing mixture of mystery novel and end-of-the-time surreality though I'm concerned by a_cubed assertion that ultimately it all fails to gel. Still, enjoying it so far.

Listenining I've minorly injured my leg which has put a hold on my running listening. The last thing I listened to was a slightly defensive history of African Art on "Stuff you missed in history" - I felt this would have worked better with a) an actual focus on the history of African Art and/or and explicit acknowledgement that more African voices would have been valuable.

Watching: Doctor Who, Mindwarp. Hmm.... more on this anon.

Mindwarp is a story that I've changed my mind about (so to speak) over the years. I used to find it a confusing mess. To be honest, it probably still is a confusing mess, but last time I watched I found more to enjoy. Looking forward to reading what you think!

I think I like the story less than I did when it was first broadcast, but appreciate Brian Blessed more...
