I don't know if best albums make much sense. I sometimes buy albums or compilations just for one song. Now I suppose you can collect through downloads all the best songs from one artist or group without going to the albums. Albums though hold memories and I suppose that is a factor in making it difficult to judge between them. They bring back emotions rather than allowing aesthetic judgement. However in saying that I thought some people in my work liked shite.

Some people thought that pornography would turn men into sex-crazed animals but this article argues that it kills men's interest in ordinary women.

It clashes with Heysal - Requiem for a Cup Final which is also on at 9pm (BBC2). The new series of The Simpsons (Friday, Channel 4) is very good (last week's episode was brilliant) and Friday also has a good movie: Event Horizon at 12.15am (BBC1). Doctor Who continues on Saturday. Excellent special effects and (mostly) good acting don't entirely conceal so-so storylines and highly derivative characters -- Davies has plagiarised from TV (Buffy), movies (most of the special effects) and video games (such as Doom). Still, it beats most TV.

The LibDems take a strong stand against tax cuts and a strong one in favour of public services: they would make long-term residential care for the elderly free across the UK, and scrap university tuition fees. They are in favour of a ban on smoking in public places, but would relax laws on cannabis. They propose to change vehicle taxation to be based on usage rather than ownership.

This week's TV highlights include two good movies. The Man with Two Brains is on tomorrow night (BBC1 at 11.45pm) and Vanilla Sky is on next Saturday (Channel 4 at 9.10pm). You get the chance to compare Hollywood's version of the movie with the original Spanish version (Friday, Channel 4 at 12.25am). Both movies are excellent although I preferred the US version.
