The Age Of Swing

Thought I had LJ'd this but apparently not...

At some point before Christmas I had a dream where I was having an argument with someone, on a train I think though can't remember who.

The point I was making in connection with the attempt to get 4' 33'' to number 1 at Christmas as opposed to some TV talent show based thing was on the lines of 'what this country needs is fewer smart-arse situationist pranks and more people hanging from lamp-posts'.

Obviously my waking self does not endorse hanging people from lamp-posts but it is, I think, an interesting point.

The bridge

The bridge is open again, apparently. I am quite impressed / surprised that whatever they were doing only took a week.
