Tegan and Sara

I need to show you this. It's Tegan and Sara, musical twins sent from the Fallen Angels themselves.

I love these two women, I love their sound and I really, really love this video. Who is the mysterious figure in black, how do the girls end up back on the stage? Where is this place and who are the masked men? It's all a mystery, and mysteries are one of our favourite things, along with love, understanding, compassion and patience - although listening to Tegan and Sara can be easier than these, sometimes.

Today's post is all about the recommendations. 

If you've ever been a fan of Buffy, if you even vaguely enjoyed just the concept of Harry Potter, or if you have an interest in magic and a penchant for old black and white crime noir films, please check out the Harry Dresden series of books by Jim Butcher. The man is genius, actually both of them are, but only one of them exists in the real world, whatever that means. The books are all available through Portsmouth library service and you can reserve them by talking to a friendly librarian, or use your pin number and do it all on line. What a service.

And in later news. Can you think of anything more beautiful that Australia has to offer than the John Butler Trio? Not sure? Then watch this and make up your own mind. Answers on a postcard to the usual address....
