Strange thing yesterday, I finished reading Childhood's End by Arthur C Clarke yesterday and found out an hour later he had died. That was the first Clarke book I''ve read. It was good but gloomy. Why are so many science fiction books for adults gloomy? Right now I'm reading The Guardians by John Christopher, which is good.I've become a bit obsessed with the Robot Museum and a bit bored with everything else, which is annoying since I'm mid-way through a painting. The amazing artist Anais Goldemberg(http://www.anaisgoldemberg.com/) alerted me to a contest going on in France ( I think) where artists get to design robots! The designs are really cool, check them out at http://www.cfsl.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=46347.
As for music these days, I've gone totally pop. The two albums I'm looping over and over are Beta Band 3 E.P.s and the Juno soundtrack. Music to be happy with.
