So, yeah. Whoops.
Last week I drowned my laptop. Didn't mean to. It wasn't murder, it was an accident...honestly. If it had been the other way up in the bag, the leaked soya milk wouldn't have done so much damage, the repair guy told me. He couldn't save it; well, new motherboard, new power supply, new screen...expensive not worth it. I'd been thinking I needed an upgrade anyway, so I decided to embrace the moment, and look into getting a new machine. It's taken me till now to sort that out, mainly because I wasn't in a hurry. Truth be... I've had a great week not being plugged into that world. I don't have a mobile, you see....never seen much use in them...so my laptop is my portal to cyberspace. Without it, I was just floating free. It's so restful to not have that busy busy thing going on. I read lots, spent more time in the garden, played with the dog, slept more. Nice time.
It's too late in the month to do a July show now, so I'm posting an old mix/show from 2013. It was originally broadcast on Dandelion Radio. I was feeling mischievous...wanting to break the form up a bit...so instead of hosting the show in the normal way, I used a basic text-to-speech program to be the DJ. I called it 'Hare'...I can't remember why...I just like hares.
It's 2 hours long, mostly electronica, and pretty poundin' towards the end. Great for the car. Here's the link for a direct download HARE
