She was dancing so hard She danced herself into a diamond

I already mentioned that recently I’ve been listening to Bill Callahan, well, lately I’ve been focusing my attentions on Diamond Dancer. I love this song,[1] I could listen to it all day long. You can also listen to it on You Tube.

The only problem is that it really does get stuck in my head and I go around humming “diamond dancer, diamond dancer” to myself. But on the pro-side, it is really great song to walk[2] to work listening to.

Over at Stainless Steel Droppings Carl has a lovely reflection on Jenn See and how the internet allows us to make connections with people we might otherwise never know. There is also an article in the Philadelphia Inquirer about Jenn and the people she knew online.

And although yesterday’s post may have been slightly tongue-in-cheek about how great the internet is, the truth is that wwwland can be a wonderful place. You get to meet new people, as a lecturer once put it, create new communities, that otherwise you might never do. So while there is stilla huge perve factor to a lot of the internet I think we should all realise that, like life[3] the internet is what you make it.
