Delighted to receive my copy of Climate Change, Consumption and Intergenerational Justice in the post today. I first met Kristina Diprose, the lead author, at a geographers conference in London a good few years ago - maybe 7 or 8! - when, I think she was just starting her PhD. It's brilliant when all that work comes to fruition, as in this book I imagine. Congratualtions Kristina! I reviewed the book for the publisher, really liked it and was hopefully able to give some constructive feedback to the authors. I'm pleased as punch to be quoted on the back cover too! And I'm glad to still be bringing a tiny bit of kudos to the University of Liverpool, where I was an Associate for too short a time.

My favourite bit of the festival by far was the set by Cardiff's Ladies of Rage - check them out. Despite all the ageing white ska bands on the bill, Landed isn't the festival for me. My favourite band on the night, I reckon, The Skalinskis. The band I went to see, Cartoon Violence, obviously didn't turn up. Best unexpected treat, guitar prodigy George Nash (cd coming out, recommended)
