  1. Sewing by Alice - Dream fabric

    Fabric with the old Netscape broken image icon.

  2. Building a capsule wardrobe: reader question

    Some suggestions for jackets and trousers for a more casual capsule wardrobe.

  3. Building a New Pants Wardrobe

    Pants as in trousers, of course. I don’t plan to do any of this, but I like “building a wardrobe” articles.

    Bryan Ferry surprisingly brill, plus *formidable* drummer, fun back-up singers, and a woman playing sax and keyboards simultaneously. VG.

    @Zoonie Headliners. Different earlier in the day.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @Zoonie Yes, but they got better and better and looked like they were having a great time by the end. Ooh encore.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @Zoonie Yup. Bryan Ferry and his band however are doing good with the old stuff.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @antimega this is, thankfully, what Bryan Ferry's doing.

    @russss Probably not, but I was expecting a heavy men-with-guitars skew to Glastonbury but there are more women-w-guitars than I expected.

    Not sure if it's representative, but the ratio of female:male performers on BBC's Glastonbury coverage seems at least equal, really good.

    @suegyford @maryloosemore Imagine jumping into the middle of that!

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @DanMorelle Ah, I did, thanks. And contributed to the new Upcoming Kickstarter!

    @DanMorelle I don't know - there are a lot of medium articles…

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @DanMorelle Sometimes yes, sometimes no. But it only gets posted if/when the service closes. ourincrediblejourney.tumblr.com/post/891806160…

    @paulpod Reminded me why I never usually listen to music radio - their constant need to hear from and broadcast/repeat listeners.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    BBC 6Music news has a recording of a random guy on the phone describing how his BT broadband temporarily stopped working. News.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @DanMorelle Sounds like they're still keeping the services running though.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @anneshewring Seems harsh…

    @paulpod *Compares price to price of a Barbican flat* *blinks*

    @paulpod That very word made me feel queasy. Anyway, if we ever moved to the country I don't think we'd be planning on much farming.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @paulpod None of those seem to have a house for the chauffeur, chandeliers, or a statue next to the bath. Minimum requirements!

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @blech Yeah… It seems like a bargain generally really. A 4-5 bed house in a large garden would go for at least £500k round there.

    @Ellieskfletcher It certainly wasn't meant as an insult, more bemusement :) Hope you're having a great Glastonbury!
