The media have gone Twitter mad lately. I’m not sure why the sudden explosion of interest now. As soon as I got a swank new phone I signed up to Twitter and regularly abuse the alphabet within the 140 character limit.

So what’s next?…

Easy. Spotify.

What is it?

Spotify offers you legal and free access to a huge library of music. All you need to do is create an account and download our streaming music player.

Yeah…free music…I was suspicious too. Apart from the occasional ad, which aren’t intrusive, it is what it says it is. Free streaming music and what’s more is the program is processing light so it’s not going to make your computer crawl. Not available to everyone, a lot of mainland Europe by invitation and if you are lucky enough to live in the UK not even that. Try it out, it’s suspiciously good.

Want to hear my playlist? Just bash this into Spotify’s search bar. 

Easy as.

London, you’re stressing me out…

February 15, 2009

London can be a fantastic place. It is a fantastic place. But I don’t want to be here anymore. The transport is awful. The weather is awful. It costs too much and the place is too damn big. I’ve lived here all my life. I need a break.

Too true.

Too true.

London, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down

No Snow Please

February 2, 2009

Yesterday night I found myself in the surreal position of listening to Matt & Kim on my bicycle in the snow while being hit by a car. I’m still a little bit spaced out.

My bike. Not the most suitable.

My bike. Not the most suitable.

I’m not sure it was anyone’s fault. I was waiting for a car to pass to join a road, ironically I was being cautious, the car tried to turn but due to the ice it had only lined itself up with where I was situated and carried on going. Not quite sure how I’m in one piece but it’s best not to question good luck. I’m still a bit spaced out.

I’ve got a pretty apt song for the occasion.

Anoraak – Nightdrive With You (Pomomofo Remix)

Maybe I should have put up Cut Copy‘s Out There On The Ice. Any other suggestions?
