Hmm: "Recently our company released a string quartet tribute to The Darkness. I would love to send you a copy for linking, reviewing, posting, whatever you think your viewers and patrons might be interested in"... it's on vitaminrecords.com apparently, though I'm waiting for a CD too... I think this might be in response to the newly restarted popex divi mail. I put in a shout out for free Motley Crue tickets, and have had TWO positive responses... will see if they pan out.

Old Street art prank today, a sign just saying "Are You Sure" at Clerkenwell Road end of Old Street... it's nice, I'm spotting a few bits of graffiti that I've not seen before too, maybe it's the leaves dropping off the trees and uncovering more of the background... the same fabulous feat of nature means we get more of a sea view at this time of year too. Not in London though, only Folkestone... yeah pictures one day.

Really pissed off with computers generally at the moment, having trouble connecting the IPOD to my computer at work, still can't connect flatmate's IPOD at home. Been reminded I still have this iMac that I can't get into, and having hassle getting pictures off my phone. Why's everything got to be so complex? I'm a bit tech-savvy, but I'm having real aggro... still one bit of schadenfreud, I have been proved right about something. That's about all I can say unfortunately, but YEAH ME! Went with an instinct, didn't cut a corner, and the people who did cut the corner have messed right up, there in a worse and more expensive position than they were when we started.

Also, smart, I changed the way my searching routines work and now popex searches for bands (The Darkness, The Tears, Steve Brookstein, ect ect) are coming up with more useful results than before...
