Quick mute key

Yay! I’ve found a new shortcut on my Sony Ericsson T610. Hold down C. As long as the keys are not locked, the phone will switch to silent. Press again to reverse the effect. I’ve saved myself 1 key press every time I want to mute my phone. Brilliant!

I should have seen this coming when my mother threaded my mittens through my parker.

Pleonasm

Learnt a new word today. Pleonasm. I got a new debit card today with information about my PIN which reminded me how much it annoys me when people say “PIN number” or “ATM machine” or “LCD display”…. eeeergh! As I’m a bit of a lists-man, here’s a list of pleonasms & also tautological redundancies. Shows … Continue reading “Pleonasm”

Shows how much crap we come out with every day.

Glove trading

Over the weekend & helped out the in-laws on their garden glove stall at The Spring Gardening Show in Malvern. It was physically tiring to be on my feet for 10 solid hours for 2 days running. But it was a well received change from the usual stress of 9-5 office job.

Finding Cool Tunes

So many adverts seem to use a soundtrack straight from my CD collection. But when I like them & I don’t have them, I want to know where to get them. Luckily, thanks to websites like Commercial Breaks and Beats we can find out just what these tracks are. Recently, sounds that have really caught … Continue reading “Finding Cool Tunes”

Luckily, thanks to websites like Commercial Breaks and Beats we can find out just what these tracks are.

Recently, sounds that have really caught my attention are coming from that O2 advert with the speakers & sunflowers. It sounds PHAT!

Music: The Next Generation

I’m seeing signs of friends & myself getting older. Sitting round MTV2 bitching about the quality of sprouting bands I can’t help think about how my parents & elders have said the same Nirvana 10 years ago. One band I just can’t get into is The Libertines. I do like a couple of tracks on … Continue reading “Music: The Next Generation”

I’m seeing signs of friends & myself getting older. Sitting round MTV2 bitching about the quality of sprouting bands I can’t help think about how my parents & elders have said the same Nirvana 10 years ago.

One band I just can’t get into is The Libertines. I do like a couple of tracks on their first album, but I saw them earlier in the year at Brixton Academy & I can’t say I was impressed. No fantastic musicianship & nothing really struck a chord with me.
Scissor Sisters is another one. What’s all that about? They just sound like Elton John with the Bee Gees on backing vocals!

Maybe Iím not into the type of music these bands provide, but I do know that when I was listening to Nirvana, opinions like “That’s just a load of noise” & “It doesn’t take any talent to do that” were commonly voiced by my parents. Now my peers & I are starting to say the same thing about music today & I can see that when we’ve got kids we’re going to find it hard to enjoy their music, even if we think we can be the coolest of parents.

Do you see what I mean?
