Robots In Disguise
I never got with the whole Optimus Prime Transformers claptrap when I was a kid, they weren't really worth the effort as a truck or as a rather cumbersome looking robot. Plus after a few too many twists they went all floppy anyway. My best mate at the time amassed a small fortune however selling stolen transformers until he was caught. He was banned from Tescos for years as a result. This Robots In Disguise is much better, known in part for one of them being the other half of Vince '‘Your moves are like being caressed by natural yoghurt" Noir from the Mighty Boosh. Mirror Mirror shows them at their most pop, and is easily the stand out track off the album 'Get Rid'...it could still get you banned from Tescos. Maybe.

Francoise Sagan - Bonjour Tristesse
I started this book sometime ago and never got further than a few pages, it came up in conversation recently and I feel prompted to revisit it. The cult french book tells the story of a 17-year-old girl named Cécile who spends her summer in a villa on the French Rivera with her father. Cecile seeks solace from her youth in the world of older men, a parody of her father who seeks solace in the arms of women to retain his youth.The story focuses on Cecile's naivety and fear of losing her decadent lifestyle as new women come into her fathers life.
Jean Seberg, of Breathless fame, played Cecile in the 1958 movie of the book.
