lighter note

I have sort of started a blog on the subject of djing. (I have recently joined the amazing world of being a vinyl junkie). You can find it here. There is also a list of the vinyl I’ve bought recently – still a lot of good stuff that I want but that will have to wait until the new year 😉 Hopefully 2003 will mean some gigging out – but a lot of practise required first…. I never thought I’d appreciate how good it feels to do a good mix (and drum’n’bass is regarded as very difficult to mix due to it’s off-beat structure) and also to flick through a load of vinyl selecting the next tune is so much more rewarding than CD’s – I’m a convert!…

We have broadband in our house now and if you don’t have it – you should. Going back to dial-up would be pretty difficult I think. On the first night, I downloaded so much live video and audio off – they have concerts/videos/live performances. It’s also great for listening to streamed radio from anywhere in the world without any buffering, I could also watch live football on the BBC website. When this becomes present in the majority of people’s homes the Internet will step up to a higher level. You won’t actually think about the net being there, it will become like the TV – you’ll use it and find out traffic, weather, news whenever you want – without booting up and dialling up.

Then, when ‘push’ services start to appear, your computer will probably ring/beep like a telephone to tell you when something happens that you have been waiting for… I’ve read a lot about intelligent devices like alarm clocks that adjust the wake up time according to traffic jams on a person’s commute or train delays, when you wake up it informs you of them… sounds pretty hi-tech but it’s only a couple of years away. Oh and wireless screens about A4 size and an inch thick that you can use to surf net sat on your settee wirelessly.

  1. Nice one Rightee! Just replaced my antique 70’s turntable with a couple of shiny new decks and trying to get to grips with the art of extreme vinyl manipulation. Very very addictive…

    BTW, I can confirm I will be joining the massive for Headcharge, ticket had been procured. Bosh!
