life begins - me

(no subject)

Since the gig on Wednesday I've been listening to the 'phonics pretty much nonstop. I'd forgotten how much the music gets into my soul. My favourite Stereophoncs song always has been (and probably always will be) Local Boy in a Photograph which was reputedly written about a friend of theirs who committed suicide (He'll always be 23, yet the train runs on and on) A close second for the longest time has been Thousand Trees which blows me away every time. Both of those tracks are on the first album, Word Gets Around which if you can get hold of it is well worth buying.

However, I've been making up for lost time and listening to the newest album Language. Sex. Violence. Other? all week and this one song is making a bid for favourite now. Maybe it's just because of where my head's at these days, but this one really hits home. It's a little bit of an oddity on the album in that it's probably the slowest, most ballad-esque, of the lot. The album is pretty rocky - Kelly Jones is a big AC/DC fan and you can hear the influences more in this album than in any of the others. Anyways... here it is:

In other, slightly random news, I just compiled a list of all the sites I run which I want to have updated before I load them to the new host. I'm actively working on eleven at the moment. Eleven.

Most of them need at least one major thing done to them, if not a full rework. Boy this is going to be a busy week! (plus there's another three which I'm happy to transfer just as they are, although they will be being reworked at some point!)

Oh - and emeraldswan, do you want me to post another challenge on dawn_stillness?

soooo sleeeeepy....

I'm going to switch on submissions again on INAP even though the switch isn't complete. It's not going to be complete this weekend so I'll just take another copy of the database when it is ready to be done.

Man I'm tired.

Been copy/pasting code for the last hour of so - and I left my glasses at work. So now I'm going to go check my eyelids for holes for a while. Okay, I really have been listening to too much 'Phonics this weekend. Still knackered though.

Also reached the conclusion that I stress too much about making sure my sites have the latest gimmick, whether it actually adds anything to the site or not. So I'm going back to what I know and love - and what I'm good at - instead of spending hours stressing over why such-and-such a JavaScript command works in Firefox and not IE... and hours is not an exaggeration (in fact days wouldn't be an exaggeration).

Rambling now. I'll leave you to go back to your scheduled friends lists...

Oooo! BBC3 are repeating the last Doctor Who season! Yay!
