Gleebooks has mailed me a copy of DBC Pierre's second novel, Ludmila's Broken English. Because I had advance-ordered my original copy by telephone, and no doubt due to the fact that they had a bunch of copies left over after his visit to Sydney, I get a free, signed hardback. He signs his name 'Peter Finlay' and has sketched a little beer mug showing a good head of beer, plus the word 'Cheers.' I collected it from the post office this afternoon.

I telephoned Gleebooks to thank them for the gift. They were pleased.

On Monday I collected my copy of Peter Carey's Theft: A Love Story from Gleebooks. I like doing business with them because they get books earlier than other vendors. They really are a quality outfit, and stock a great range of books, including most of the small, local magazines that are hard to get anywhere else.

Wow, thanks for the insightful comments. You are able to pin point some of the things I want to say in my videos however I always end up just sitting back and letting the heavy darker sides of Japan rest. Perhaps I would get more viewers if I tried to do a comparitive month...yet, for the time being I imagine I will continue with the interviews/weekends out with the camera/and experimental for that music video...yes, it did take a while to render, 9 hours! on a iMac G5 2.0Ghz...yet, I was sleeping while the machine rendered the clip.
