Train Tracks & Visuals

Last week was spent travelling to and back from Nancy in France via rail (Leics - London, Eurostar, TGV and back) or attending meetings with evening meals and socialising. Barely any time to have a look around other than a brief bit of sight-seeing in Nancy on Tuesday afternoon - see here for a few shots.

I probably could have seen a few things from the trains had I not been either engrossed in working on the laptop, watching films on the i-Touch or listening to music with eyes wide shut. Only avian interest was Black Redstarts (a couple noted on the tops of very impressive architecture in Nancy) and surprisingly (for me at least) loads of Ring-necked Parakeets in the local park.

So, here's a taste of what I was listening to or watching ..

Fields of the Nephilim - great music, pantomime videos

Angel Heart - awesome 80s classic

Sisters of Mercy - thumping drum machine on this track

V For Vendetta - eloquent terrorism

Siouxsie and the Banshees - still sounding great

Watchmen - super heroic
