Little House On The Pier Head

I never program my video recorder. Ceefax doesn't give the Videoplus numbers, and I can never be bothered to set it manually. I don't record much anyway - generally things I'd miss otherwise from being out - so I usually start it recording manually before I head out; the time display is good enough for me to find the programme later.

This does result in my recording all sorts of bits of TV I don't intend watching. Occasionally I catch something of interest, as happened last week when I recorded Newsnight Review before a Gram Parsons documentary.

Among the subjects for review was recently opened art festival in Liverpool, Biennial 2004. Lots of contemporary art scattered across the city. I'll have to see if I can get across if I end up in the North-West for Halloween this year.

I'm enjoying exploring the festival through the semi-unofficial Liverpool Biennial Blog 2004.

Was the Gram Parsons documentary any good?

It was. I think it's been on before, but I only caught the end of it then. It was interesting to find out something about his music rather than just the controversy surrounding his death.

I'm hoping that Fopp will have the Flying Burrito Brothers cheap next time I'm in town...

Cool. If you've still got it can I borrow it? I saw a bit about him on a documentary once but it was all about him and EmmyLou Harris who I don't like much...

Unfortunately I've taped over it. I did have a look on the web to see if it was available on BitTorrent or eMule, after I found the BBC page for it - Gram Parsons: Fallen Angel.

Sadly I didn't find it, but if you're interested in some gay porn, I can now point you in the right direction...
