I couldn't resist popping The Sound of Music LP in among the junk this week. When I was in my teens I found instrumental music very inspirational for my daydreams so I used to buy a lot of new and second hand LP's and film soundtracks to listen to while doing my art. It became something of a compulsion in the end as decent instrumental music was quite hard to come by and often a new compilation album would have almost all the same tracks as a previous one. But no matter where I looked, whether second hand record stores, charity shops or even bootfairs the one record that kept continualy popping up time after time after time, was this one!!! I've nothing against the songs or the film as I like both but I've never felt the urge to own a copy of this one just because I grew sick of the sight of it. Incidentally back in my teens the section for instrumental music was always labelled ‘Easy listening’ but it seems more likely to be called Chillout now.

Anyways….next week, Lenore has vanished but is she gone? ;)

Have a nice week! :)

1) I have a shitload of instrumentals from the 1960s onward, mostly on vinyl. We swapped e-mails a looong time back so you should be able to contact me, and e-mail me with a physical address (to protect your privacy, this could be your place of work, or even better 'Poste Restante' and a named post office - this means you go up to the counter with some form of ID and collect the item - you don't even have to give a name because you could give me something identifiable but untraceable like your National Insurance number); I'll burn a sample as FLACs to a CD-Audio (these will play in most car CD players) and you can choose which ones you want to hear more of.

Because we speak so many languages in my household, we tend to listen to a lot of instrumentals. Sometimes multiple languages can be useful because if you say something stupid or nasty in a moment of temper you can always blame it on a linguistic misunderstanding, but music is a universal language. It also makes the twins shut up for a while so they listen.

2) Panic attacks may be all in the mind but they are serious nonetheless. I was in a supermarket recently and a woman was having breathing difficulties so I called over an employee who I knew personally and she took one look and called a first aider. He took one look and called an ambulance, she was going blue in the face by now. A paramedic gave her gas and oxygen, then a sedative, and she was right as rain.

The NHS recognise this (what if she'd had a panic attack while driving?) but the public at large don't. I, as a layman, would certainly have not considered her panic attack as 'just playing for attention' - she was seriously ill - but that's how it's often portrayed.

I had an unexplained panic attack at the Biltmore house once. It's the palatial summer retreat for the Vanderbilt family when they were turn-of-the-century robber-barons that's now a museum. An American Carlingford, if you will. I just had that instant "get out!" fight or flight reaction just like Sare here.
