Food And Drink: Part 2
The Co-operative // 1600-1700 21.11.10
an immoveable feast
"Alice began to get rather sleepy, and went on saying to herself, in a dreamy sort of way, 'Do cats eat bats? Do cats eat bats?' and sometimes, 'Do bats eat cats?' for, you see, as she couldn't answer either question, it didn't much matter which way she put it."
Lo! Sean's back in the studio with Rosie this week, having been away conducting some very important radio-related research. He brings excerpts from the diaries of Brian Eno and Lord Byron as well as a miserable little poem by Philip Larkin, all beautifuly tessellating around our theme - Food and Drink. Yes, the more attentive listeners will notice that this is similar to last week. We can assure you that this is not some monumental cock-up (!), but rather a meticulously planned and flawlessy exectuted banquet of two halves. (We couldn't afford pudding.) Musical highlight - Sister Carol's dietary advice in the form of Veggie, Veggie - "No MSG, no eggy, eggy, eggy, eggy."
David has bewilderingly transformed into a woman called Simone, but we were too polite to ask what happened.
As ever, do get in touch, and send us your ideas for next time, which is... Sleep. Bon appetit!
