La Piscine, Roubaix – December 2019

A day trip to the town of Roubaix. I knew only of the Paris-Roubaix Cycling race, but it’s also home to La Piscine. This repurposed swimming bath is now a museum of art and industry.

It’s well worth a visit if you are in the area.

Ypres – December 2019

On a cold and appropriately grey day between Christmas and New Year, we visited Ypres in Belgium – and visited a few of the historical sites from World War One including:

  • Tyne-Cot cemetery, where nearly 12000 British and Commonwealth bodies are buried.
  • Langemark cemetery where over 44000 German soldiers are buried and commemorated.
  • The Menin Gate, where the last post ceremony has been observed almost continuously since 1927.
  • The Christmas Truce memorial, near Comines-Warneton where a football match was played out on Christmas Day 1914.

Best of the Decade

Writing a ‘best of the decade’ or a top ten of the ‘tens’ is a heavy lift. When you listen to a LOT of music, then it’s a struggle to pull out the absolute favourites.

For this one, I chose my favourite album of each year… this wouldn’t be a bad list of albums to keep on repeat for a decade.

  • 2010 – Black Noise – Pantha du Prince
  • 2011 – Ceremonials – Florence and the Machine
  • 2012 – Rhythm & Respose – Glen Hansard
  • 2013 – Les Revenants (OST) – Mogwai 
  • 2014 – El Pintor – Interpol
  • 2015 – Gomorrah (OST) – Mokadelic
  • 2016 – You want it darker – Leonard Cohen
  • 2017 – Marlon Williams – Marlon Williams
  • 2018 – Here lies the body – Aidan Moffat & RM Hubbert
  • 2019 – Ghosteen – Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
