Just installed TotalFinder from @binaryage – one of those "why doesn’t OS X do this already?" apps… http://bit.ly/aRWf5u #osx
Hm. I think I’ve shot my way through my “falling in love with the Yashica” phase. It makes photographs, and they’re square, and if you point the glass in the right direction and twiddle the knobs until the red line meets the yellow line and press the shutter release at the right time, then you’ll get something that looks pretty neat. Great.
Lust over - let the real hard love begin. I am, by no stretch of the imagination, a virtuoso of this particular instrument yet, but I think I’m in the market for a filter to help refine my eye.
In other words, I need a project.
[And in other news, the built-in light meter has failed. Time to send it in for repair, subject to the next influx of disposable income…)
Life’s missing white space by Leo Babauta.
Yep. Amen indeed.
Just finished leading a four hour performance poetry workshop for a group of poets from Bournemouth. Sheet 1 of 7: http://ow.ly/i/3Sqm
This is the Hand Drawn Map Association. Wow. I’m sure there’s a poem in there somewhere… http://ow.ly/2EaQ6

Awright. You’ll have noticed the tumbleweed rolling through silence here over the past ten days or so. Two reasons: a) my MacBook Pro caught another bad case of “gammy logic board” (I can cough up the lingua technica when I need to, can’t I?) and died quite suddenly, and b) that gave me the excuse I needed to immerse myself in my (other) writing. Working on my next collection as best as I can. Got the MBP back at the weekend, and my working habits have instantly slipped back into bad. Spent 7 hours upgrading a Vanilla forum for The Vineyard poets last night, not to mention catching up on email etc etc.
And as far as the listening stats go? In truth, more than anything else, I’ve been listening to WYEP’s Prosody, back to back episodes drawn from their archives. I don’t remember listening to that much Shed, but hey, the Last.fm/Tumblr pipe by JoeLaz doesn’t lie. At least, I don’t think it does.
MacBook Pro went down again on Sunday, hence the radio silence. Just dropped it in for repair; diagnosis: not good.
"Is pursuit of clarity technique? Maybe. I hope so. I want to make sense. I want to be clear and say…"

At @daddydark’s Accidental Powercut gig. Acoustic music in a church. And Mr Dark’s looking trim. Must be all that RunDemCrew business…
iOS4.2 on the iPad in November. Was hoping sooner, but can’t complain. Steve’s currently pimping updates to every iPod model… #mac
I’ve been asked to spread the word: Tongues on Fire – A tribute to the Black Panthers, f/ The Roots, The Last Poets… http://bit.ly/cMbnBY
In this day and age, I take a very dim view of any web based systems that only support IE or Firefox. Very, very dim.
Just found the Prosody radio show, and the poetry of Jennifer Perrine. Pretty good start to the morning! Listen here – http://bit.ly/cBfzYT
Did I really listen to that much Shed? Wow. Drifting into tech-house territory. Mount Kimbie’s still up high, James Blake is here for ‘CMYK’ , Bunny on Acid is here for ‘Snow’, and as much as I really like Dirk Rumpff’s Offtrack Radio Show, it only charted this week because he played Dimlite’s remix of Ahu’s ‘To Love’ (let’s just say there was much looping of that specific part of the show). Looking forward to the release…
