RC 240: Mexican Monkey 40th Birthday Party!

It was my 40th birthday a few weeks ago and I’ve just about recovered. There was alcohol, there were cards, there were long beards, thou shalt always BBQ, the cake was not a lie, there was mexican monkeys – wait, what? Well maybe not Mexican Monkeys, the new track from Daft Punk. Well not that new, it’s been #1 for like 3 weeks. Current, eh?

And yes we go from Handel to hiphop, shoegaze to sixties, electro to eclectic, bootlegs to booty-shaking bears!

I also went to see Low and Handel’s Giulio Cesare (NOT at the same time, although I suspect they would be compatible) and saw Book of Mormon…and generally and gently ruminated about the nature of life, and being 40.
