The White Album

There is a confessional game in which, say, English graduates admit they have never seen Hamlet or read Great Expectations. Well, I must now admit to never having owned The Beatles' white album. My friend James Postgate had it (or perhaps it was his sister Debbie) and it may have been on in the background as we played subbuteo on the dining room table, but I never really listened. And so now I have bought it and I am going to listen to it properly.

  3. Because I thought you might be interested. Vain, I know, even conceited. And, in fact, this is a good lesson in Bloggery: don't talk about yourself. What MIGHT be interesting is what I think of the white album not the fact that I have never listened to it. So I am grateful for your comments, whomsoever you might be.

  5. Well, as I have said on the blog, I'm a little disappointed at the lack of - conversation, shall we say. i rather feel as though I am shouting down an empty old well.

  8. You didn't have many posts to sift though. That student possibly felt he was shouting down an empty old well. Perhaps you prefer speaking to rather that being spoken to?

  9. I suspect you have a better grasp of the technology than i do. I am not aware of any sifting process that might bring comments to my immediate attention. As to your question - well, it depends, rather, doesn't it, on how I am being spoken to?
