don't judge the
cover by the book

listening: clocks coldplay

Seen while I was walking down Toorak Rd:
A busker flipping through his copy of Music for Buskers. The amusing
thing was that this appeared to be a real book, real as in real-someone-actually-published-it-real,
not just some loose photocopied sheets of music. Can Busking for Dummies
be far ahead? (if it hasn't been published already.)
Noticed while browsing in Borders:
A geekish, Chinese guy, deeply engrossed in How To Make Anyone Fall
In Love With You. Or was it How To Make Everyone Love You.
I was trying to get a better look at the cover, but I think he's caught
A sign on a shopwindow on Chapel St:
"Secure your future. Become a musician."
Tagline printed on a keychain:
"Coffee. You can sleep when you're dead!". Nothing like thoughts
of one's mortality to keep one awake.
