sod Apple!

|
I just wrote a really good post, went off to Apple to get a link to the new sexy black Ipod I desire and WHAM! my browser collapsed in a heap. I thought Apple tech was so damn reliable? Sod that for a laugh.

I can't face rewriting it all over again. So here's a quick summary of what I had written:

  1. Thanks to Ideological Putty for pointing me to Michelle Huneven's 'Jamesland'. A fine novel.
  2. My MP3 player died last weekend after 3 years good use. I was going to write about how I want to purchase a sexy black IPOD but after the experience described above...
  3. I'm on the wagon the whole of March
  4. TV is generally shite but Curb Your Enthusiasm is wonderful
  5. Go and download/listen to Sonic Youth's cover of Plastic Bertrand's Ca Plane Pour Moi. It really is a most enjoyable SONIC experience, play it REALLY loud and enjoy the sound of dreadful things being done to guitars, just what the doctor ordered.
  6. My sitting for Jan: 947 mins, Feb: 431 mins. Not good.

My dad's got a black ipod. So they're not really that sexy.

I'm glad you liked Jamesland. Her other novel, Round Rock, is pretty good as well.

I'm thinking I want to read William James book on religious experience and then reread Jamesland.

My first son Ed complained when I bought the white Nano and not the black one. Perhaps I'm uncool.

Out of interest, who's idea was it to time your sittings? Personally I can't think of anything more counter-productive than comparing two months 'meditaton stats' and seeing a drop.

Tim: Nah, it's not like that, more a sport of friendly competition between the 'me' of January and the 'me' of Feburary. No super-ego judgements involved.

Tim said...

Sorry Martin. Didn't mean to imply that it was an ego-driven thing.

no problem Tim, I hadn't taken it that way! Cheers M

Hi Martin. Thought I would drop in and see how you are doing. Looks like you are doing fine. Thanks for the Sonic Youth download which I am enjoying hugely. Best wishes, David

Hey David! What's your email address? Send it to my work email if you'd rather not post it on the web.

David Cameron said...

Are you still at my former place of work then? I'll email you there tomorrow (Tuesday).
David
