General music chat / It's "What's Goin On" Day!
« on: Today at 01:16:07 AM »
"Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” has long been recognized as one of pop’s most thoughtful and compelling protest songs. Now the song, released 50 years ago this March, will be elevated even further: In Michigan, Governor Gretchen Whitmer has officially proclaimed January 20th as What’s Going On Day in her state."

 Nice work again, Ian!

Thanks for that in advance, Ian. Looking forward to a Top 30 list that doesn't include "Taylor, GaGa, or Bieber"... ;)

well...

No, it doesn't Mike  ;D ;D ;D

I knew I could count on you  ;D  Every "Best of list" I've run across so far, from "serious" publications and programs seem to be all of the one's listed above!

Have to say Taylor swifts album was very good.  Have you heard any of those albums you list?

Yeah, actually it's not a secret,  I have.
I've heard parts of their latest offerings. Enough to know I'm not interested in hearing any more. TS's country pop never interested me, although I guess with her latest with the guy from "the National" she's dropped just singing about her ex's.. Likewise was never a fan of  GaGa's dance pop(although my hair dresser was a BIG fan). She has a decent voice, and from what I heard of her Tony Bennett duets could be a good singer if she was inclined to learn jazz vocals from jazz artists. That might interest me.
As far as Bieber goes, well.... he's "Bieber" after all.
Although he has some cool tats I hear.

Mod fashion and style / Re: Best clothes purchase in 2020...?

That just goes to show an obviety: weather determines or should determine your clothing/footwear choices... if you aren't a clobber addict like ours, that is!  ;D I've got at least 4 coats and a couple macs that I get in rotation for hardly a month each year (the raincoats see more use, as I can wear them some Spring/Fall days in our odd downpour). Same with too many thick jumpers that I only get to wear more often when I go to my Pyrenees place.

Truth is proportionally I stock more Spring/Summer items, like dozens of short sleeves cotton/wool tops, but still I know I have more clothes that I need, and a bunch of them are used maybe twice a year.

Take for instance cord shoes; contrary to your point of view, I tend to see them more as a Fall/Winter stuff than Spring/Summer, and overall I get MUCH more use of my suede shoes than of the leather ones all year round.
Having an unusually dry Winter here so far, may have to dig my cord shoes out of storage...

Cord shoes, and a pair of Loafers from Modshoes. Zip Shetland cardigan from Anglozine. 3 shirts, 2 pair trousers from Claudio. Edward Sexton PoW flannel suit. As soon as things open up again, I'm ready!

Yeah I got the Jook zip up from Anglozine that was a perennial fave - lovely wool, really warm colour!
Yeah Robin, I'm getting a lot of wear out of that "Jook".

I heard about a strict new lockdown there in UK, so you'll still have to wait a bit more to flaunt your finery, guys. Ánimo!!!
Hang in there, guys. I'm in a "self imposed" lockdown !

Ahh, the old `waiter, make mine a double` jacket.  :D

Weller wore something very similar in the `Wishing On A Star` video, cracking version too, by the way. 
Ha ha.. It's actually more off white/cream colored if that makes it less "service industry" attire  ;D

Well, the burgundy velvet one looks a little too "Hendrix" for me, but I'm not against the military jacket style.
 I did pick up this one from John Varvatos about a year or so ago:

(Still looking for a decent pair of riding britches, though ;) )
