How to Influence Make Friends and Intoxicate People


Bender Tuesday
Ahhhhh..., another wild Bender Tuesday. There were very few of us because most of the expats are back home on holiday. It was sausage fest but there was a lot of progressive rock! 

I awoke to see that the NL smoked the AL 8-0 in the All Star game. Wow! Crazy. This means Washington will have the home field advantage if they get to the World Series.

Spain in numbers (from BBC.co.uk)

  • Spain is the eurozone's 4th largest economy
  • One in four people is unemployed
  • House prices have dropped by 25% since 2008
  • The banking sector is highly indebted. Bankia, the country's
 fourth largest bank, recently asked for a €19bn bailout
  • By 2010, one in four Spaniards were at risk of poverty
or social exclusion
And today President Rajoy announced a 3% rise in the VAT tax, as 30,000 miners arrive in Madrid to propose cuts of subsidies that might cost as many as 30,000 jobs. It's going to be a fun day! 

28 days to go!


Buying New Soul, the Soundtrack
So i believe i mentioned that Jim read Buying New Soul and had a lot of nice things to say about it. He said  that it was like a concept album within a book, and that i should compile all the songs, in order (as quoted at the beginning of each chapter), and make an album. I had toyed with this idea a few weeks back and then thought it was a stupid idea. And then Jimbo mentioned it. And then I told Vicky the idea and she loved it. 

Currently it would be 28 songs, 168 minutes. I might have to snip something so i could make it a two CD set. It would be one hell of a collection of songs (see below.) Okay! Cook some sausage, edit more, go to bed. It is mercifully cool tonight.
