The difference between writing and being a writer is that when you write, you hold the pen and when you are a writer, the pen holds you.
First, an excellent version of the Camelot Song (Monty Python) as performed by the cast of the original Star Trek series
Second, a good list of books you should read if you like Sci-Fi. I can recommend many of them, having read them myself.
Syd Barrett, the progenitor of Pink Floyd, was announced to have passed away today.
I recommend to anyone to buy the CD “Wouldn’t You Miss Me” – The Best of Syd Barrett (Harvest/EMI 2001). Of course, that’s assuming you already own the seminal work “Piper at the Gates of Dawn” by Pink Floyd – which is essential!
Sadly, Syd’s active contribution to music died long ago, but it is still a sad day to lose someone who was so influential.
Shine on you Crazy Diamond.
