    Songs you forgot you wrote

    Like the "Songs you forgot you loved" thread ... Was talking to one of the Stoat wives (not my own wife, smart arse) over the weekend and she was saying how our stuff has got more relatable over the years. Mentioned a song with the line "my days are numbered" from years ago as an example ...

    Why men behave like pigs

    In which @egg_ theorises about why so many men behave abominably towards women (see @Jill Hives and @riath 's posts in the "Your work situation" thread) Basically in my experience of country pub situations, men's disrespect towards women has nothing to do with individual women at all.

    How to respond to this

    I got a whatsapp msg from a lad who used to be on my team at a previous job. He's really smart and a smiley friendly type who gets on well with (almost) everyone, and who was such a nightmare to manage that I ... well, I kinda lost my shit for a while. My marriage is still recovering And now, 3...

    Quiet solo piano

    Been working on a bit of solo piano stuff myself, so I've been checking out what else is out there, and it turns out it's a whole genre of sort of quiet melancholy piano playing on Spotify. Some of it's lovely too:

    Music videos that depend entirely on a pretty face

    Here's one. Nothing happening except Freya Ridings's loveliness. Too hypnotised to even know if I like the song Tempted to rip this off for the next Stoat video - could come out as unsettling or funny, either of which would be OK with me

    Adventures on the cutting edge of wokeness

    Festivals that allow teenagers

    Most Irish festivals don't allow anyone over 12 or under 18 in, even if they're with their parents. Vantastival is the only exception I know of. Anyone know of any others?
