It has not been easy to find time to blog or produce my podcast during my current short visit to Malta. I really want to blog about some of the interesting people I've met here over the last few days. I've caught up with long-time friends I hadn't seen in years and I've also spent some quality time with others I had never met before, including four members from that new Maltese rock band I like so much. There's a whole podcast to come from that wonderful evening in Pembroke. I was hoping I'd have the time to produce it as this week's edition of Mużika Mod Ieħor, but that was extra-super wishful thinking.

Ironically, its the near astronomic number of such encounters that's keeping me away from going online to write about the experience. This visit is very different from last year's, mostly because it's much shorter and I've had more time to spend meeting people other than university students and fellow lecturers.

Last Monday's Poezijaplus session at the Manoel Theatre courtyard was so good I cried. Real tears! And Wednesday's launch event for Adian Grima's new book of poems, Rakkmu was also very delightful. I managed to get there in spite of the bus strike, thanks to my old buddy Mike Bugeja, who I met earlier that evening at Tony's Bar in Sliema, along with Jody Fiteni and Kevin O'Neill, both of whom I hadn't seen in eons. Mike provided some of the tracks for this week's Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast, which I'm planning to record and publish on Monday evening. Tonight I'm off to see Particle Blue perform live at Naasha's in San Gwann.

Apologies go out to the regular listeners of my podcast for the slight delay in the publication of this week's Mużika Mod Ieħor.

Just a curiosity - were you at the pre-run performance of Agamemnon last Saturday at MITP? I was one row upwards from yours but I couldn't tell it was you since the theatre wasn't exactly illuminated.

Yep, I was at the MITP last Saturday before the Particle Blue gig at Naasha's. It would have been nice to meet you.

Sellili għal Mike jekk terġa' tarah. Kien hu li introduċini għall-indie u mort nixtri 'Lesiure' tal-Blur mingħand l-Energy (cassette)

O zmien ħelu....

He told you 'prosit'. So next time play him something of his on your poddata. That's what the 'prosit' means.
