Chapter eighteen at last, Two Tour De France victories and a bit of Muses’ Resistance.

31 Jul

What’s this I spot on the horizon?  No…it can’t be…chapter eighteen! According to my (totally erroneous) calculation I should have finished this chapter in March. OK so it hasn’t stopped me from being excited. Unreasonably so. It not only happens to be one of the oldest chapters it’s the “heart” of “The State of My Heart” – ha, ha! It’s awesome. It’s also dark. I have fortunately, found plenty of things to take me out of my scribblings and wake me up to the fact that I am still Evangeline and not fiendish Luke Joseph.

Our fab guy, Mark C!

Last week was grand, for British cycling. Mark Cavendish seemed to  quickly get over his disagreement with Thor Hushovd and came back, stronger than ever. One amazing hill win at Aubenas on a category two climb and on the Champs Elysée, taking his stage wins to six! Bradley Wiggens, Fourth! Don’t know what the world is coming to. When did we last win anything in The Tour De France?

Muse’s fantastically, OTT, “United States of Eurasia” was finally “unlocked” (no, I don’t understand it either) by some long-suffering fans on their web-site so the whole thing could be heard. What a song!  As it built towards the chorus it sounded like it was going to burst into “We are the Champions” .  A bit unnerving. But I can’t remember the last time however I listened to rock with  as grand as pretensions, since 1991, when Freddie (Mercury) died. The Chopin is incredible – a stroke of crazy Bellamy genius.  (It’s also v.  moving if you watch the promo on you tube.)Muse's forthcoming album
