I received an android smart phone from Santa. I’d always thought it would be a total waste getting one of those things since I rarely use a cell phone. Little did I know that a phone is the very last thing this little computer does. It’s a dangerous little item too. If you aren’t careful it’s like a credit card without you being aware of that happening.
Sherman Way is a street in LA. Why is it in my head at all. And how the heck did it get there.
Some very wicked things are going on. That poor girl in India. And Syria seems determined to implode. I recently read how a father smothered his baby son while crossing below a sentry post so the rest of his family might survive.
Music is crap this year. It’s tinny, twee and totally without challenge. Where are the edgy punky nasty little toe-rags trying to form something new. All we’ve got at the moment are the grads from the music colleges generating schlock to put a meal on the table. Basically designed to strip pocket-money from 12yo’s.
Kathy Bates, I saw in a new TV program called Harry’s Law. Set in Cleveland Ohio. She really is an acting genius. But the few episodes I’ve seen, while good, are rapidly running out of steam. It’s in the genre and stable of LA Law, Boston Legal and a few others. Watchable most definitely. Distinctly on the Democratic side of things for the US and so center for the rest of us.
I think my XP PC has had its day. I’m quietly amazed it lasted this long. Recently though it has taken an unconscionable amount of time to start and since the tiny phone has more active memory it’s laughing at the huge tower. It’s also beginning to look like an octopus on Ritalin with all the USBs filled. Do we need a CD writer nowadays. It was de rigueur. I don’t know when I burned anything, it’s been years, probably 07. I always put it on a toggle. Are CDs even on things anymore
I know I’m late to the game. But Angry Birds…. . When I got the phone first I went and installed all the worthy solid apps. You know Chess, Sudoku, GPS, aural books, news. But Angry Birds is just so hilarious. It brings back the only good of the lost years between 12-16 when you had a vaguely destructive attitude to most things. Not exactly nihilistic but actively destructive. It really is no wonder all armies like kids just above that age to mold.
HAPPY NEW YEAR
