Kiko Jones

I'm no flag-waver myself, but it would be in poor taste to reject or dismiss your country's flag under the particular circumstances you describe in your post.

"...when did Mick Jones turn into a Sheffield accountant?"

Hair loss is a bitch, my sweet. (You know, as the years go by I find he and Simenon resemble each other more and more.)


Kiko, it's tricky, what to do with the flag, but I don't know that the issue is "poor taste." It's that for some people, maybe it's time to start questioning how we align with the flags of nations that have sold us out and turned us into immigrants. But how do you register your critique without offending people? Ahi está el detalle.

As for Mick & Paul, sorry but Simonon has aged MUCH better. He's still kinda hot, whereas Mick (never a looker) looks entirely, um, age-appropriate. Better than looking the fool, but just a tad deflating.

    Kazuo Ishiguro: Never Let Me Go
    So many friends raved about this. But I realized I get impatient with gothics. Must be the obligatory genteel reticence of it all.

  • Ed Park: Personal Days: A Novel

    Ed Park: Personal Days: A Novel
    A comedy of social manners for the cubicle age. Nicely plotted even when it dips into the absurd. But I could'a done without the tour-de-force punctuation-less email that ties all loose ends.

  • Hanif Kureishi: Something to Tell You: A Novel

    Hanif Kureishi: Something to Tell You: A Novel
    A bittersweet sequel of sorts to Buddha of Suburbia and Beautiful Launderette: What happened to all of us old brown punks now that we're middle aged.
