Where The Wild Things Are

I think you'll agree that this book is one of the greatest childrens books ever. Its just wonderful. A magical tale about a naughty little boy called Max who gets sent to his room and travels to a distant land in his imagination and finds these amazing wild beasts. Just great.
My Mum and Dad brought me up on this book (that and tuna and rice) and being a cheeky little beast myself as a child, I identified with the monsters in the book. The best phrase was also born here 'Let The Wild Rumpus Start' Isn't Rumpus a great word??
It's been made into a film - which is mildly sad because you can't escape or match the magic found in the book but I'm still looking forward to see what it's like. It's out this Winter, I think November.
Just look at this Wild Thing and his spikey toes! Ace.

Sarah Palmer @ The Legion

It was the first night of her residency at this cosy little spot on Old Street. It's been a bit of a fave for me recently what with Ou Est Le Swimming Pool performing there last week for there single launch.

Sarah, dressed in tight black clobber and with long dark red hair makes a massive impact before she opens her mouth, but when she does it's quite hard to fathom where that huge voice comes from. Such a belting voice at that!
'Be Somebody Else' is a firm favourite of mine, its honest and straight-to-the-point lyrics always striking a chord with me, "But you can't get there unless you fucked the boss babe." Brilliant!
She rocked out to the core and she'll be there every first Thursday of the month, can't wait till the next one.
Have a gander here http://www.myspace.com/sarahleannepalmerband and keep an eye on this one!
Love Sarah xx
