I bought the Juno soundtrack for £3 today in a supermarket. I haven’t seen the film but seeing Belle and Sebastian on the list of artists was enough to persuade me. That, and it was the same price of the expensive quiche I had for dinner.
It’s full of simple, sweet teenage music – a bit like biting into a non-moldy peach. And I’m a new fan of Moldy Peaches – you can watch one of their odd and joyous videos here.
It reminded me a bit of the glorious Praise You video, which always makes me grin.
We can always do with more grinning. Praise Bargain Moldy Peaches. Have a lovely weekend.
When the delivery man knocked on my door at nine o’clock this morning I could have kissed him.
I restrained myself. Instead I took a deep breath and ripped open the top of the cardboard box and there it was – The Letters – my book. Look – there’s my thumb – it must be real!
I’ve been dreaming of this moment since I was seven, when I made my own books by stapling folded paper together and designing my own covers.
Anna and Em at Snowbooks have made a truly beautiful book inside and out, and the quotes they’ve chosen from Caroline, Jacqui and Susan are perfect.
I’m not a huge fan of hardbacks, but having seen how modestly sized and lovely this one is I’d suggest you might want to treat yourself so you don’t have to wait until March for the paperback. You can get it direct from Snowbooks (worldwide delivery) if you want to be sure of receiving it before Christmas, or for a discount from Amazon UK or Amazon US (it should be available there soon fingers crossed).
Thank you Snowbooks. Happy Fiona. I feel like Snoopy did when he did his dance.
