    Third autographed cd release in a week! A few days a go I inherited the marker-penned signatures of David Tibet and Steven Stapleton on their new releases. Today the postman brought me One Man's Treasure by
    Mick Harvey, carrying the Bad Seed's signature generously scrawled across the cover. I'm not a collector and doubt there's any great material value in these, but it's nice to make a personal link to the artists who - in these cases, quite literally - have passed their work on to me. The music alone is tremendous, so now I'm doubly grateful.

    Similarly, I've been enjoying a pleasant exchange of emails since Greenbelt, with Bill Drummond's manager John. Thrilled to hear they're considering maybe returning to the festival next year to do something around mydeath.net. That'd work, I'm sure.
