Britblog Roundup #95
Welcome once again to out little listing of those posts you think we all should see. You can send nominations for next week's simply by emailing the URL to britblog AT gmail DOT com.
One small adminstrative note. Next week's will be the final version in its current form. Blogging has in fact proven so remunerative that we are moving from Lisbon to the Algarve. You will, in two weeks time, therefore be able to feel the warmer, sunnier electrons that make up this weekly blogfest.
First up has to be this from the Surrey Comet. Yes, I know, it's not a blog but the comments system is of course very blog like. Whoever adopted the Mrs. Dallinger persona has a very fine comic talent.
Mr. Dodge reports back on his paper on the music industry. Giving as good as he gets in hte comments section too.
Gracchi iwth an interesting little historical piece on the ending of slavery. All too many forget the Haitian Revolution.

My London Your London with a concert review:
It’s quickly clear that there is real substance behind Bat For Lashes’ style - this stage is dripping with talent as well as fairy lights. Not only are Khan and her three companions all unfeasibly beautiful, they can also apparently play any instrument you put in front of them.
Philobiblon on a new detective novel, set in the time of Henry VIII.
Doing the geneological research: finding that one ancestor was taken prisoner in WWI.

Diamond Geezer on the lost London trains.
Other Men's Flowers goes looking for Jane Austen.
Purple Elephants Corner is absolutely correct. No one cvan ever again listen to 4 non-Blondes. Their crime is simply too great:
I will say however that his biggest crime against humanity is bringing That Song into the world. It is the most tedious, nauseating pile of trite...
And that's it folks, tune in next week for the last Lisbon based edition and until then:
