Someone asked me how my blog and newspaper column came to be titled "Bleachers Brew". It's like this, it's an amalgam of sorts of two things: The bleachers area in the stadium/arena where I used to sit when I would watch baseball, football, and basketball games and Miles Davis' great jazz album Bitches Brew. That's how it got culled together. I originally planned on calling it "The View from the Big Chair" that is a nod to Tears For Fear's second album, Songs from the Big Chair. So there.

A pair of football books I got @Kinokuniya

A couple of books I picked up: Barca by Graham Hunter and Didi Man: My Love Affair with Liverpool by Didi Hamann. I bumped into a couple of people at Kinokuniya (at Ngee An City) who read of the Hunter book in Bleachers' Brew and they decided to pick it up. Happy reading!

I also saw a couple of advertising books that I wanted to get but no more dinero. Haha. I also read and collect books on advertising, design, and graffiti. Guess my old illustration and advertising tendencies have never left me.
