5. Choose 25 (or so) people to be tagged...or not. (I won’t tag anyone, just leave your own list in the comments; and if you’d like to be tagged just leave a note in the comments so I can link to your post in an update.)

  3. Music humour in the Herald (mobile site):

    (At BDO.) "Pearl Jam - A fine young American band on the way up. They should impress with their spin on classic rock topped by decent tunes as sung by Mr Edward Vedder, a promising lyricist who could, in time, prove the voice of his generation.
