I am in the process of organising things and I am cataloguing all the sites that I have out there and it is one hell of a lot of things I have written which are moving towards being books. It is nice to see them growing and developing, especially if it is in surprising ways that I didn’t initially envisage.

I also eventually want to write some music review books and film books. Hence my music sight. I have absolutely loved reading Lester Bangs and the way that he captures the music he loves and makes something just as wonderful in his review of the work … someone who writes with real passion about something he admires. If Hunter Thompson had written about music I think he might have sounded like Bangs.

Like all of my literary heroes, or heroes of other bents, I never want to be them – I just want to write with that passion and intensity and with that magical ability to capture the spirit of what I am writing about. If you can gift someone else with a piece of music or a film that is going to change their life, or a piece of your own work – then how great is that?

I am watching ‘Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind’ at the moment and I am thinking about how important memory is to us; the links we forge music, film, books, and the shared culture which makes up the backdrop to our lives are fundamental in that construction. I am intent on building great memories for myself, but man, if I could forge a place where others can come and spend some time and build new memories, that would be the most amazing thing. I know I would haave done something worthwhile with my writing.
