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, 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 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 the internet is what you make it.

aw man, my comment wouldn't show right because it won't let mw do heart (i.e. less than three) symbols! :( what i meant to convey was "smog/bill callahan *heart*".
Indeed TGWAOF, and I must tip my hat (were I wearing one) in the direction of Uncut magazine. I stumbled across so many musical artists because of their cds.
I really should start buying that magazine again, I don't purchase any on a regular basis anymore.
yeah, it won't let you use any html-y stuff like that. I wonder… does the ♥ work?
Ooh, it does. Simply type & hearts ; only without the spaces and you get ♥
cool. smog ♥ yay!
I totally agree with your statement about the internet being what one makes it. That is so true. It isn't always easy to avoid the people/things that one would rather not associate with, but it is that way in real life as well.
