Thus endeth the year

Twas an 'annus horribilius' really, in many ways - what with my best friend dying suddenly. I've been in the dumps ever since. I decided to use my spare time over Christmas to paint the big Soviet tanks I bought a few years back. They've been sitting, unassembled and unpainted in the cabinet for so long, that I thought perhaps I ought to do something about them, and its been at least eighteen months since I last painted anything. This brought my old plans of Rocketman adventures with Oleg to mind, and it has not been easy. Top Gear and Jeremy Clarkson's You Tube videos have kept my mind from obsessing, and slowly the tanks have taken form. I don't know if I'll ever use them, but at least they'll look good on their shelf. I'll post some pictures once they are finished.

In the meantime, I've discovered a new band, Au4. I think they are from Canada but I'm not sure.

Life has a way of bringing balance so let's hope 2014 does it for you.

Equilibrium or bust?

Trying to think who AU4 remind me of... very good though..... in return may I recommend to you Amplifier.... "Panzer" in particular is a bit of a favourite (probably for understandable reasons!)

Thanks Steve. Amplifier reminds me of Stone Temple Pilots

Yes... I like his voice...

Thought of who AU4 remind me of now (and I've been listening to them a lot the last few days, very nice!).. The Orb
