Prada Group is shutting down the Helmut Lang label from next month.

Bugger. I was hoping they'd hold out until I could afford the clothes again. Like 2050 or something.

There. That's this forum dealt with. All your base are belong to me. Woot.

The vast majority of red grouse in the UK have either tape worms or thread worms. I don't think that they infect humans so you should be OK.

You mean humans get a different kind of tape worm? :D

edit: dunno whether trichostrongylus tenuis are tape or thread, but Google search seems to confirm that these at least do not infect humans.

Last week, Norah Jones at the Hammersmith Apollo. I know, I know, and I was not sure why I'd booked even before it started. I mean, I've never bought the new album. But as I'm sure I bored everyone with already, I first saw her before the first album came out at PizzaExpress in Dean St, and she was fabulous -- smoky, intimate settings are what she needs, and moderate expectations rather than global fame help too. The Apollo was far too loud and amplified for her (some lyrics actually hard to make out), and the recent focus on country is not to be encouraged. Disappointing.

Tonight, serendipitously (I was only asked yesterday), Sonny Rollins at the Barbican. Absolutely magnificent. At 74 the guy can hardly walk, but he can dance, and his lungs, energy and all-round brilliance were extraordinary. Amazing extended solos that produced in me alternating dropped jaw and grin for the entire evening, elaborated from a range of material from standards and own compositions through old Italian folk songs and calypso. Several standing ovations. Most extraordinary musicianship I've seen since Jarrett about a year ago. Still feel profoundly cheered by it.

Oh god, nobody told me he was on here.

Should have read the members list before signing up, or maybe your eyesight is going as well?
