Default Wot? No update?

They do say that the biggest single threat facing the internet these days is real life. What? They don't say that? Hmm. Excuse me one moment .. Hello? Patent office...?

Ahem.

Seriously. apologies for the lack of update last week but I have had the week from Hell and really, MB and the web was the furthest thing from my mind. I don't want to just throw together a quick post as I can see a lot of people have put serious work into their journals, and I didn't want to just skim through them in order to meet a deadline; they deserve to be properly read and appreciated, and reported.

So I'll hold off and do a double update at the end of this week, which will then end up being the last update for November and the first for December.

Sorry if anyone was looking for their work to be immortalised last Sunday but I will definitely get to it, and the update will be the better for waiting.

Again, apologies but when your sister needs to go to hospital, three time in one week almost, I hope you can all understand this, and everything else, takes a very low priority.

Thanks for your patience: I shall return!

Minor disappointment, but I really hope your sister is okay. Also, sometimes real life has to come first, after all.

I understand completely since I was in a similar situation but it didn't end well for me. My mother ended up passing away at the hospital.

Thanks guys for your good wishes. Karen seems to be on the mend now (fingers crossed).

DJ, my condolences on the passing of your mother. I hope it was as peaceful as possible and no unfinished business was left behind. Hang in there, man.

Take your time, man. Your sanity and healing is more important than our egos and silly journals. Hopefully you can take a lot of time to unwind.

As the others have said your priorities quite rightly lie somewhere else, as this is just a hobby forum and not real life.

Anyway all the best to your sister.

Default Update for week ending December 1 2013

First off, I'd just like to thank everyone who posted messages of support here over the last week or so. It's really appreciated guys, thank you. Secondly, as I mentioned last week this is a double update, so covers both the last week of November and the first week of December. I won't be differentiating between posts made in let's say week one as opposed to those in week two, as I'm making this one big update, so if you posted something from November 17 to Dec 1, it'll all be treated as having been posted “this week”. Hope that's clear.

Also as I said last week, and as I had hoped, things are certainly beginning to move down in Journal Town, with two new journals being started and the return of an old favourite. I've been working hard, having made zero updates last week, to work on my journals as much as possible this week, which we will get to in due course.

Right now, it's time to see what the rest of you got up to when I wasn't here...

Briks takes us in, opening the doors to http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...seur-cave.html once again, behind which we find reviews of albums from Modest Mouse and The Smiths, while one of those new journals I mentioned is from

Butthead aka 216, who believes http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...therapy-s.html, and sets out to prove it, with interesting dissertations on bullying and why you --- yes, you there, and you! --- are all pussies. Along the way he's invited some often heated debate (which is always good) and also managed to shoehorn in some music, such as The Get Up Kids, Cellophane, Texas is the Reason and Movielife, to name but a few. Methinks this could be one to watch!

There's some bleeding hearts going on down at Engine's http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...avy-music.html journal, where he's musing on hippies and metalheads who want to save the planet. Sure why not? It's the only one we have. Spaceship? What spaceship? No, not in MY shed mate! You must be thinking of someone else...

Seems Journal Land wouldn't be Journal Land these days without Ki, who is certainly working hard at keeping things ticking over here. Down at his workshop, otherwise known as http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...nal-music.html you'll find his pick of 100 albums he enjoyed 100%, with the likes of The Sword, The Beatles and Nick Drake, as well as more videogame music, Theocracy, a feature on Runescape and more!

And of course Ladyislingering has her usual selections from her http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...ic-memory.html with no less than seven – count 'em: seven! --- selections from her Top 100 of 2009. Why 2009? Go to her journal and all will be revealed! Gotta retain some mystery...

Plankton is back with his http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...r-players.html, with an intro to the great Robert Fripp. Didn't think he was that obscure? Oh well, it's your journal man, and well worth checking out I might add.

Powerstars, one of the few/only Bon Jovi fans here other than myself, has reviewed “Have a nice day” in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...sicalness.html. He's also starting up the 12 Days of Alternative, and foreshadowing Trollheart Rip-off Month, to air in January. Contacting my lawyers as we speak...

And so to me. As I mentioned, I didn't manage to update in the last week at all, so this week I've been hard at it. In http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...d-journal.html you'll find five more Reasons to be Cheerful (god knows I need them!), a review of Springsteen's “Darkness on the edge of town”, two brand-new sections and the beginning of Christmas with Trollheart. Things are hotting up over at http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...-emporium.html too, where we're beginning our look at some of the worst Christmas movies ever made (probably), as well as starting off the series “Mayday” and more from Frasier. There's also a return for Red Dwarf as season two gets underway. And I've managed to get a review of Steve Earle's new album in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...i-reviews.html. Phew! Lots more to come, especially as the Christmas season gets started in earnest. Stay tuned!

Never one who has been known to take a break, it's http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...y-history.html as usual for Unknown Soldier, who this week is looking at Thin Lizzy and Motorhead, as we get closer to the birth of NWOBHM...

Normally that's it, but this week we have a second new journal, as William The Bloody leaps http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...ta-coffin.html with some fine music and information on The Sisters of Mercy, among others. Looking good: just don't let anyone stake ya Spike!

And so ends a long-overdue update. Again, thank you for the comments and well-wishes, and I think I can safely say my sister is on the mend. Hopefully. Sorry for the delay and thanks for keeping the engines running while I was otherwise engaged. All I can say is, if you come to Ireland and get sick, make sure you can afford private healthcare! Total of FIFTY hours approx spent over three days in the hospital to find they'd messed up putting her catheter in and have it replaced, leading to an infection. Bloody Irish health service!

Anyway, thanks again and all should be back to normal for next week.
Till then,
Toodles!

Good stuff, TH. Thanks for the mention. I plan on shoehorning in much more music in the future. Hopefully I can get into some other members' journals. Not a lot of music I particularly like but I'm not exactly someone with a wide scope or musical variety either.
