Human League – Empire State Human playing on the radio

I haven’t heard that for decades, it used to be on one of my favourite mix tapes back when I was a teenager – possibly still is on one of my tapes in yet another box squirrelled away around the house

40 years of Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures, my unrecognised screen background So 40 years after the release of what I thought what was one of the most recognisable album covers of all-time, I have that image based on pulsar activity as my screen background at work. Three people so far this week have asked what it is, one asked, “Oh, is that something you’re working on.” Nobody recognises it, and when I explained, one just said “Who?

Spotify just decided to play Roxy Music's [Virginia Plain] (<https://www.last.fm/music/Roxy+Music/_/Virginia+Plain>) for me. Last night RRR's Superfluity opened with the same track

Read an Ian Rankin Rebus novel, listening to a Rebus-inspired Spotify playlist

So much of the character of John Rebus revolves around his music, firmly places his age and style. Curiousity got me, a quick search and I found a playlist someone had created, whether of albums & songs mentioned, or just inspired by… of course now Spotify will think I’m an old boomer too from a day or two of the Stones, Black Sabbath, Nazareth, Velvet Underground and Joni Mitchell

I've been listening to Tinariwen all day and my ears hurt

These headphones drown out cow-orkers, but eventually they make my ears hurt, especially my left one

The lad's homework — Music of the 1960s

The lad's homework — Music of the 1960s

Saturday, Mar 2, 2019

@ Adrian Tritschler

Doing some end of the month tidying up and I came across a list of songs thrown together to help the lad with that week’s homework: “listen to some music from the 1960s.” We’d had a thoroughly entertaining hour or so after dinner as I hunted around in Youtube and chose what I thought was an appropriate selection. Part way through I guessed — incorrectly — with Silver Machine, then we lapsed into a few songs that were recommended to be listened to, then dragged ourselves back to the task at hand:

well there you go; courtesy of Tim Bray’s Song of the Day series I’ve found that Barrett’s Privateers, made famous in my ears by Weddings, Parties, Anything, is from Canadian Stan Rogers

Music – The Knack

listening to the entire album “Get the Knack” to relive a little childhood, for years I had – and probably still have – a cassette tape with a live concert and had never realised that it’s probably that album played through, I think I’d only ever heard “My Sharona” on the radio. Very cheesy, no wonder it appealed to my 14yr old self.

I’m not sure whether the author is truly confused, or if this is meant to be just a blatant attempt at grabbing membership numbers for their forums. I won’t dignify them with a name or URL, but here’s a “personal message” I received through the last.fm messaging system with their name elided: You are invited to join ……., a Gothic & Metal online community aimed at making it easier for like minded people to meet and get to know each other.

Its five years this week that we’ve been living in the ‘burbs. Its seventeen months since a little boy appeared and any form of nightlife vanished. Its a long time since I’ve been to a gig! Johnette Napolitano at the Corner hotel. Dinner at Sylvio’s — a large Sylvio’s special, garlic bread and a carafe of wine — quick, hot, tasty. Then back down to Swan street to the Corner Hotel.

Weddings, Parties, Anything know their audience well; they’re all getting older, they’re all getting fatter, many of them have kids… so for the last show in the series of the ten-year reformation Christmas in April it was a matinee show. Quite odd to walk in from the bright autumn sunlight to a dark pub bandroom and see not only a room full of punters but young kids darting about here and there, dancing on whichever of the two stages wasn’t currently in use, and generally putting everyone in a good mood and making them laugh.

…The Owner

There’s not much more I can add to who I am.

…The Site

Vanity site? Technology experiment? Learning tool? Blog? Journal? Diary? Photo album? I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you…

I experiment. I play. I write and I take pictures. Some of the site is organised around topics, other parts are organized by date, then there’s always the cross-references between them.

Its all been here a fairly long time. Like the papers on my desk, or the books on the bedside table, the pile just grew… and it all grew without much plan or structure. I try not to break URLs, so historical oddities abound.

Long ago it started as a learning experiment with a few static HTML pages, then I added a bit of server-side includes and some very ugly PHP. A hand-built journal/blog on top of that PHP, then a few experiments in moving to various static publishing systems. I’ve never wanted a database-based blogging engine, so over the years I’ve tried PHP, nanoblogger, emacs-muse, silkpage and docbook before settling on Emacs Org mode for writing and jekyll for publishing. But the itch remained… I never really liked jekyll and the ruby underneath always seemed so much black magic. So now the latest incarnation is Org mode and hugo.
