ENJOY YOURSELVES, IT’S LATER THAN YOU THINK.

IT’S THE BRITS TONIGHT!!!

so looking forward to it.
probably not for the reasons YOU may be thinking. oh no.
since TOTP was relegated to xmas day only i have missed the chance to have a regular rant at the state of the “mainstream” music in this country.
and having worked nights for the last 13 Brits, i have missed it. yeah, recorded a couple, but not the same shouting at the telly on your own. 

which brings me to Vicky…. SHE isn’t as enthused with tonight’s prospect. 

oh dear. 

but let’s be reyt. the best music in Britain these days is largely ignored, because it is not being force fed into folks living rooms on weekend telly. 
GET OUT THERE. SEE BANDS. ENJOY YOURSELVES.

PUSH BUTTON, AUTOMATIC

spent most of my afternoon at work pondering, with an image not too dissimilar to the one above being most prevalent in my minds eye.

been asked a question today of which i have searched for an answer for such a long time. fair pained over it at times to be honest.

don’t get me wrong, it’s nothing serious like the answer to the ultimate question (which we all know is 42) but a question that has nonetheless stumped me for an age.  

 

and i think i have it beaten. maybe.

i have given an answer to the person that posited it this aft, and currently i eagerly await their considered view on my reply.

watch this space pop pickers!

ILLUMINATION

i was setting up Skype again a couple of weeks back and decided to try summat i once did before. i am going to try and simulcast a radio show on video streaming. now, whether this works or not is in the lap of the gods, and if if actually HAPPENS, relies on me getting a new webcam. or should i say ANOTHER webcam. cos i bought one. 

looked ok. said it would do what i wanted. and was cheap enough. too cheap. should have known really. brand new webcam for less than 3 quid. all the way from china. no p&p.

idiot.

absolute pile of rammel. it works ok ish for skype, but won’t do the job for the shows. so if i can source one in the next 24hrs we’ll be going live visually AND aurally. if not it will wait until the new year.

watch this space.
