Ah Crap!

Geez. Everything has gone to hell this week.
The washing machine packed a sad (broke down, for all you non-Kiwis) and cost a ridiculous sum to have repaired, I broke my glasses, the DVD player's video DAC crapped out (although it still functions as a CD player), and my computer was almost fried oweing to a worn out electrical socket which hasn't been replaced since it was installed in the 1950's. To top it all, it's frickin' freezing.

To relieve the tension, I am reading 'Catch-22' by Joseph Heller. This is fiendishly funny! Heller captures the niceties of avoiding your superiors, and ably describes how one may best shirk one's duties. Incompetence and indifference hold reign, and hilarity ensues. And what can you do sometimes, but laugh at how dumb life is. 'Catch-22'.

There's a lot of excellent music out there right now. For instance: Shihad's 'Alive' EP ('Love is the new Hate' has just been released) and Opshop's 'You are Here'. It's New Zealand Music Month!
Support all the great talent we have - great bands like Shihad and Opshop, The Mint Chicks, The Have, Goldenhorse, The Datsuns, The D4, One Million Dollars, Pluto, The Finn bros., Misfits of Science, The Black Seeds, Salmonella Dub, etc. The number of musos in NZ is incredible, and the industry has come a long way in recent years. Show your support!
