Last night a Red Sky. Need to change the saying. Red Sky at Night, REALLY big puddles next day….
There is a long running British radio show called Desert Island Discs. Guests talk about their life and then play songs that they would take on a desert island with them. In addition to the Bible and the Works of Shakespeares they get to take a luxury item.
Well we played our own version of that last night. A few tweaks to the shows rules. I’ve done mine while Hawklad is taking his time over his. So you will get three posts from the Desert Island. Mine is here and Hawklad’s will follow. There will also be a third post – can you summon up for inner Sherlock and figure out what’s its about.
So here’s mine. Starting with the 9 tracks.
Whitesnake – Here I Go Again
Iron Maiden – Fear of the Dark
Leonard Cohen – Suzanne
Pink Floyd – Comfortably Numb
Lynyrd Skynyrd – That Smell
Shinedown – Get Up
Alter Bridge – Godspeed
Paul Gross – Ride Forever (from the TV Due South)
Foo Fighters – Walking After You
The Book I would take would be Terry Pratchett – Mort. The movie I would take would be End Game. The TV series would be the XFiles. Favourite food would be Apple Crumble and Custard. Favourite Drink would be full on Coffee. My favourite snack would be Cheese and Onion Crisps. And my luxury item would be a Telescope to look at the stars.
So that’s my list. If the desert island is anything like Yorkshire this afternoon then I would need a very thick jumper and the largest umbrella. Maybe not the most ideal desert island weather.
