Valley Of Sound

From the "How did that pass me by" department...

Heather Nova has an album out. Next week. We are not scaremongering. This is really happening.

I'm not sure you necessarily want Sarah Silverman on your side in an election...

Shure thing

Things I have learned this week:

Royal Mail's track & trace lies about whether things have been delivered.

Shure's customer service is superb. Called them last week about my frayed headphones. Posted Saturday, brand new boxed pair arrived today, upgraded to the newly released equivalent of my old pair.

Apple's bundled iPod earphones are the work of satan and all his horned minions and everyone involved should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves. Three days using them was three days too many.

From the "Oh do just fuck off" department.

This email just received:

Subject : "Madonna Sold Out? Get Tickets At StubHub!"

I hope your secondary ticket market gets regulated by government, and regulated hard. You deserve it.

The Front Fell Off!

I may be very late to the party on this bit of Australian humour, but it did make me laugh. Very Bird & Fortune.

Pictures Of You

I've been offered a contract as a freelance photographer for one of the large London agencies. I should send more random emails on Sunday night. I'm going to meet with them while I'm down in London. They've also offered to help get me accrediation for shows... I think that might require an investment in equipment, somehow...

Careful what you wish for

On a whim last night, I sent some of my concert photos to some press agencies. This morning, one of them agreed to take my photos.

I didn't expect that...

Ah, P Diddy, man of the people. How *will* he cope without the private jet, poor kid?

Sometimes songs are just right

While the Republicans do everything to be seen to be helping out in New Orleans, I'm reminded of Springsteen's take on things last time round. Never fails to send a shiver down my spine.
