Today see’s me flying to Edinburgh for another Six Nations weekend and the prospect of a bruising encounter with the Scots.
Tonight I’ll conveniently catch the Blues playing on the Watsonians ground at Myreside against Edinburgh Rugby. Should be an entertaining match and a good precursor to the main event tomorrow. I will head to Twickers on Sunday to watch England maintain their unbeaten record with what should be an easy win against the Italians.
Hopefully Wales can take the form against England, play the full 80 minutes and come out on top against a rejuvenated Scotland team who lost narrowly last time out against the French.
On the headphones today is a young band from Reading ‘Sundara Karma’ who have been likened to U2 and Arcade Fire. The band played Cardiff Uni last night and went down a storm. They remind me of a young Kings of Leon!
Here’s a track from their debut album.
Reading on my flight and over the weekend for the 2017 Book Challenge is Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World published in 1932. This one will cover the ‘Book read in school’ category, but honestly I had hundred’s to choose from; Roald Dahl, Kurt Vonnegut, George Orwell, Ernest Hemmingway, Douglas Adams, and books like Lord of the Flies, Catch-22, To Kill a Mockingbird, the Great Gatsby, the Catcher in the Rye and of course Of Mice and Men.
I chose this book as I wanted to reacquaint myself with his vision of the future, it’s getting close…. and of course it’s comparison with Orwell’s 1984. Huxley’s book appears in the top 100 of various book lists so I’m looking forward to the re-read in anticipation it’s as good now as it was a long time ago.
Have a great weekend everyone, catch you on the rugby trail tomorrow.
