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.

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

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…

Interns and volunteers? Dang. Knew I’d forgotten something.
