Warp 9 and Light Years Away to start off the 7am shift.
There was a time back in the Fair City when my copy of Crucial Electro was on permanent loan to half the year group in Year 3.
A dog-end album cover and a scratched vinyl was returned to me before the end of the summer term.
I’ve never heard Light Years Away sound as fresh as it did this morning.
Daisy and Dotty had a weird night.
They didn’t sleep with me – this ISN’T as weird as it sounds.
Instead they entertained the frog that I suspect Dotty brought in during the early hours.
This left them both a little whacked for the start of Wednesday.
Daisy did venture outside before the Estuary Wilds rain started.
She was soon chased back in by the BEAST of a bully with a poncey bell around his neck.
My only free time for the swim was late afternoon.
I took a rain check and thought BALLS to that.
And so a run instead.
I was trying to take a break from pounding the mean streets of C07 whilst my odd foot injury heals.
I took it easy around the University park circuit. My odd foot injury didn’t make an appearance.
A little more work, and then a haircut.
It’s only taken me seven years to trust a barber in the village.
I bashed out a brief Chronic piece from a news list that is building up once again.
And then a pretty major Buzz scoop.
We’re on a roll right now. It’s not hard tbh when these stories write themselves.
Bloody audioboom buggered up late afternoon.
Deleting the @audioBoom app then. And backing up content. Fun (and free) while it lasted.

I knew this was coming…
The platform has come a long way since the early days of the more pleasing audioboo.
Actually it hasn’t – it has regressed.
I still use it as my main audio tool, both for work and for pleasure.
But the increasing shift towards a subscription model was only a matter of time.
Bollocks if I’m paying £9.99 a month for each of my three school accounts, let alone my little used personal channel.
And so now I have the task of taking the crap out of the silo.
These platforms never make it easy to take back what you put in.
I searched around for various solutions to download 500+ recordings from my personal account before audioboom forgets that I ever existed.
Cheers for being an early adopter, Jase.
Various php scripts came my way.
In the end I settled for a rather simple method of subscribing to the RSS in iTunes, and then downloading all the content.
I now need to find an alternative audio platform for my school work. Anchor is a possibility…
News of the S Ldn / Essex inter-worm breeding reached me in the evening.
Anna reported that the worms have been delivered to South Lambeth Road.
All we need now is for the f-wit delivery company to deliver the wormery.
We decided instead for Anna to take the worms to work tomorrow [ewww] and then bring them back to bloody Essex.
They can get jiggy with the Essex worms until we have a home for them back in S Ldn.
Which has kinda been my own personal life for the past seven years, Comrades.
