    • 2009 October 4, David Johnson, “Spandau Ballet, the Blitz kids and the birth of the New Romantics”, Guardian:
      Everyone supped and danced on the same spot every week according to some invisible floorplan: downstairs near the bar stood the boys in the band (no make-up), their media and management by the stairs, credible punk legends such as Siouxsie Sioux along the bar, suburban wannabes beside the dancefloor.
      add
  12. freeride
  13. frolickings
    • 2009 October 4, Barbara Ellen, “The year the girls grew up on screen”, Guardian:
      Even Lone Scherfig's An Education, based on Lynn Barber's memoir, set in the early 60s, strives to deliver a different slant on the standard "deflowering" bunkum, emerging as a film about a young girl's relationship with her own intelligence rather than her frolickings with an older male.
      add
  14. fugged
    • 2009 October 4, Hermione Hoby, “Florence + the Machine, Speech Debelle”, Guardian:

  15. housey
    • 2009 October 4, Kitty Empire, “Deadmau5: For Lack of a Better Name”, Guardian:
      Such commercial nous might lead one to expect obvious builds and tinned bliss-outs, but this scrawny Canadian plays housey techno to ever-larger crowds in his custom-designed giant mouse helmet with strobing eyes.
      add
  16. ketchups
    • 2009 October 4, Anushka Asthana, “Shock finding on salt levels in big-name brand foods”, Guardian:

      add
  17. liberational
    • 2009 October 4, Eva Wiseman, “How to be…”, Guardian:

  20. mutiliation
    • 2009 October 4, Catherine Bennett, “The silence of the ladies who lunch over the ladies who die”, Guardian:
      Even if, as he concedes, western condemnation can't stop horrors such as honour killings in Pakistan and female genital mutiliation in Africa, "in our own countries, where it could be changed if the will existed, condemnation would surely be a useful first step, and it might help some of the countries of origin to at least see the point".
      add
  21. nigglingly
    • 2009 October 4, Euan Ferguson, “Desert Island Discs and A History of Private Life”, Guardian:
      It had always bothered me, in a nigglingly infinitesimal way that only really bothered me on those mornings when I did not have, elsewhere, any kind of vestige of another life, about that perennial need to credit the late Roy Plomley at the end of every, every Desert Island Discs .

  22. pierrot *
  23. pooh *
    • 2009 October 4, Kathryn Flett, “Putting my London years behind me”, Guardian:
      My friends nodded and sighed, the children paddled and played ducks-and-drakes and pooh sticks and hopscotch and conkers and threw down their jumpers for goalposts – or would've done if they'd had jumpers, but of course it was far too hot – and eventually they decided to struggle back up the H2H (the Highway 2 Hell, though to them it's just the highway to home), leaving me and mine to attend a charming al fresco ambulatory performance of Much Ado in Random-on-Sea's delightful gardens at dusk.
      add

  25. quangoland
  26. raisiny
    • 2009 October 4, Tim Atkin, “A toast to Grenache”, Guardian:
      Four wines I'd recommend with at least 45% Grenache are the liquorice and blackberry fruity 2007 Taste the Difference Côtes du Rhône Villages (£5.99, 14.5%, Sainsbury's) , the savoury, raisiny 2006 Clos de Mont-Olivet, Côtes du Rhône (£6.99 each for two, 14%, Majestic) , the smooth, polished 2007 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Les Pradel (£17, 14%, Marks & Spencer) and, most entertaining of all, the intense, chocolate-, vanilla- and black fruits-like 2006 Charles Melton Nine Popes, Barossa Valley (£24.95, 14.5%, Liberty Wines, 020 7720 5350) , a quirky Australian tribute to the great wines of the southern Rhône.

    • 2009 October 4, Miranda Sawyer, “Miranda Sawyer: Sounding Off”, Guardian:
      When Kasabian look revolutionarily outré next to your band, you know you have to branch out.

  28. rictuses
    • 2009 October 4, David Mitchell, “I don't go to restaurants to tell the truth”, Guardian:
      Yet we've all experienced human gatherings which, despite goodwill and good food, become rictuses of pain – social tetanus for which the only jab is alcohol – and leave everyone praying to be reincarnated as something solitary, like an eagle.
      add
  29. rigaudons
  30. rockists
  31. sambadrome
    • 2009 October 4, Tom Phillips, “Brazil looks to transform sporting greatness into gold on world stage”, Guardian:
      "From an artistic point of view, as a dancer and a cultural producer, this will… give us a unique chance to show the entire world that samba is not just about the bottoms of half-naked ladies parading through the sambadrome," said Manso, one of Rio's leading samba businessmen and dance instructors.
      add
  32. solera
    • 2009 October 4, Tim Atkin, “Ask Tim: Andalusian Sherry”, Guardian:
      Hang out in a few tapas bars (I like Bar Juanito and Las Bridas in Jerez and La Gitana and Bigote in Sanlúcar) and visit a couple of Sherry bodegas for a tour and tasting so that you can understand "flor" and the solera system, both of which are essential to Sherry.
      add
  33. stickable
    • 2009 October 4, Graeme Thomson, “Embryonic by Flaming Lips”, Guardian:
      Perhaps inevitably for an album written on the hoof, there's an almost fatal shortage of stickable tunes.
      add
  34. sucessor
    • 2009 October 4, Heather Stewart, “How not to succeed at succession”, Guardian:
      So concerned were she and her advisers at court about the threat of her cousin, the unpredictable – and Catholic – Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots succeeding to the throne, that she was locked up in the Tower of London in 1568, and finally executed in 1587, leaving the way clear for Mary's son, James I — a rather extreme way for a leader to ensure they get the sucessor they want.
      add
  35. unoaked
    • 2009 October 4, Tim Atkin, “A toast to Grenache”, Guardian:
      Try the pepper spicy, unoaked 2008 Gran Tesoro Garnacha Red, Campo de Borja (£3.54, 13.5%, Tesco) , or the firmer, more powerful 2007 Garnacha, Cruz de Piedra, Calatayud (£5.99, 14%, Adnams, 01502 727 222) .
      add
  36. uplit
  37. virginities
    • 2009 October 4, Barbara Ellen, “The year the girls grew up on screen”, Guardian:
      All a far cry from standard COA fare, where virginities, male and female, tend to be lost in a burst of clouds-parting/violin-strewn romanticism.
      add
  38. waal
