As per usual, title = first book, random page, first sentence sighted. This one is from Half of Man is Woman by Zhang Xian Liang. This time I've decided to give it context... Full paragraph at the end of this post.

On a slightly different tangent, this entry is a little more specific to Last.fm. Pretty simple - (mostly) a selection of the best music freely downloadable on Last.fm that I found this year (not necessarily released this year), accompanied by their most poular tags and three similar artists, to hopefully give a general idea where they're coming from. Many of the similar artists will also have free downloads, so check them out, too.

Some of these can't be downloaded directly from Last.fm, but either the links to do so are on the profiles, or included here. Many of these artists can also be found on Bandcamp or other sources (net labels etc), where the download quality is a little better - if you sample something and like what you hear, make sure you look 'em up and get the best quality download available. You'll often find more available than what's here, too.

A few have been excluded purely because I've mentioned them elsewhere. A lot. There may or may not be a part II. We'll see how lazy I get.

*While all of the above artists are awesome and more than worth checking out, for The Liar Script specifically, you're better off more thinking Sisters of Mercy and the like.

Poppy Wash EP downloadable via a link on MySpace - a link which I couldn't get to work, strangely.
Just a note, also, after a few times of playing perfectly, the download wouldn't play properly at all on my old computer.



I discovered the peculiar function of being 'civilised'. It lies not in directing but in explaining a man's behaviour. Not having acted, I could rightly applaud myself. Had I acted, however, I could have forgiven myself just as easily, and indeed considered it the action of a strong man.

    Thanks :) They strangely seem to suit the posts... Most of the time, anyway!
