Today is going to be a good day. I have a meeting to discuss a fun joint paper on masculinity, jazz and the modern novel. I have a presentation to write for my colleagues on Twitter for Academics, and Grant Shapps is in more trouble for being a small-time chiseller. And the Olympics have finished - sad in a way but also a reminder that I had a wonderful time as a volunteer at the fencing.
So here's one of the songs that's always made me happy: Shonen Knife covering 'On Top of the World'. Japanese female indie rock: what's not to love (see also: the frankly unhinged and wonderful Melt Banana)?
