I had this cartoon given to me on a movie viewer 40 years ago - thank you Santa :-)

40) How did you come across your favourite band?

When I first heard Depeche Mode in the eighties, they seemed like any other New Romantic band - tinny and more than a bit frilly.  I had been more into Soft Cell, Adam and the Ants and Flock of Seagulls - DM didn't figure on my radar til college.




Then the nineties saw a big change, when the guys hit the US grunge scene. Everything may have gone a little dark, but the Mode found their groove.



They have survived death, addiction and break ups - but are still ticking on.

For [livejournal.com profile] pigshitpoet - bit of a seedy group and very full of 80's teenage angst, but brilliant.  Very Eighties Underground - especially 'Youth' and 'Bedsitter.'  Reliving my teenage years alas :-)

Rockin' out wid da Mode!! - my favourite song for all time. For me, the lyrics just nail it for me. Long live Depeche Mode @-->-->--



Now I'm not looking for absolution
Forgiveness for the things I do
But before you come to any conclusions
Try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes

You'll stumble in my footsteps

Discuss the treatment of social issues and ideas of the time in Dickens' novel Hard Times

I have been advised to look at John Mill, who apparently did fairly short work on Utilitarianism - well, you could have surprised me, the damn thing on Gutenburg has five chapters and runs into reems.

Link here - but do not operate machinery while reading this text.

The Victorian Web will be useful, especially when it comes to the social issues of the day. Just trying to find an introduction.  :-/

Hmm - a very disturbed day.  It doesn't help that my office is nought but a thoroughfare between the front door and the rest of the house.  Managed just over 700 words (planning stage only), but not sure where to go with it.  Right now, I am concentrating on the Industrial Revolution, the Poor and Education of the day.

I know I have posted this one before, but it reminds me of Christmas 2009 and being stuck in gridlocked traffic traffic just outside Epsom and the snow coming down so thickly, it looked like bubble bath.  We were visiting Hubby's family and this came on Capital FM.  Good times :-)
