I haven't. Read the odd thing he wrote down the line, but nothing long form. Didn't he marry a Bavarian countess? Actually, that's just the sort of thing Robert Forster would do.

So, is there an established etiquette for this yet? Ultra presumptuously, I only have a 'Friends' circle so far. Worried My Combined 'Morrissey bitten by dog/Murdoch Scion's backpack hip-hop past' posts have crossed some sort of line.

James Murdoch bankrolled Rawkus Records. Mind. Blown.
I knew the troubled News International boss when he ran a cool, urban record label. It never quite felt right

indeed he did. Not surprisingly it went down in flames with loads of artists complaining about not having been paid...

+Dan Maier pointed me in the direction of these three amazing BBC archive music docs on Adam "The Power Of Nightmares" Curtis blog. Fascinating moments in time.
Online films, text and selected images from Adam Curtis, maker of The Power of Nightmares, The Century of the Self, The Mayfair Set, Pandora's Box, The Trap and The Living Dead.

Oh, Gene Vincent. Heartbreaking.

My parents ran a rock n roll club for years, so that was the music I grew up with.

The bit where the old soldier goes to visit No 10, and Winston Churchill's wife has 'some chips on'- genuinely ahead of it's time in weirdness.

Reading John Snow's blog. There's the usual wonk stuff, then, this. Jon decides he's Haruki Murakami...
The Queen's phone number sold by one of Her loyal Royal protection officers. The Prime Minister of the day's phone, family medical records and bank account raided illegally. Well, that's only the star...
