Well folks, tonight's my last night on the White Isle, and I've got to admit I've got mixed feelings about going. On the one hand, pretty much everything's closed and everyone's gone home, so there's less than feck all to do out here now (not to mention the fact that I'll have nowhere to live come tomorrow night anyway!), but on the other hand I've now got to go back to London, sort out my shit, a job, some money, and somewhere to live.
Two things have been bugging me today. The first is reviews - mainly, in this case, music reviews. I'm going to preface what I'm about to say with this disclaimer; this is just a question. Nothing more, nothing less.
A couple of the acts playing at the Grad Ball have MySpace pages with players which play their music. I've found out we can insert those players on our Grad Ball minisite pages, but I can't find any way of preventing them from automatically playing tunes when the page loads.
Today's "other rant" is about the music industry (again, probably) - I know naff-all about business economics, but I do know what hypocrisy smells like when I see it...
TAFKAP is giving away his new album free to readers of a certain newspaper. Mr. Quirk of the Entertainment Retailers Association says, "It is an insult to all those record stores who have supported Prince throughout his career."
This tune reminded me today - with rain pouring down outside, coursework on the laptop and the logistical requirements of my imminent house move gnawing away at the back of my mind - that there's a big world out there with a beautiful soundtrack.
I need to get my arse to Ibiza this summer, before I get too old to enjoy it ;o)
