I added the links to music and blues foundations and archives back on the blog today. I had taken down the page where I originally gathered the links and this morning I decided to put them up in the sidebar rather than on a separate page. I also put the info about myself in the sidebar as well.
Does anyone know if the blues bibliographic database compiled by Gorgen Antonsson is up on the net? Anywhere? My link to the database is dead and even with extensive searching I haven’t found it.
Okay…this Twitter thing. Being the last human on earth not to have a twitter account, I have been looking at it. I just don’t know what I would do with one. Sending out tweets like “I just vacuumed’ or “drank cup of coffee” or “typing this with chopstick held between teeth because I can’t lift my arms after push-ups” seems…pointless. The first two are boring to me and I did them. The last one is probably too long to fit in the 140 character space. I know I could follow other people’s tweets but I already know what my friends are doing. I know what my online friends are doing.
I suppose I could follow celebrity tweets but again, do I really need to know David Hewlett is riding his bike or Jensen Ackles is walking the dog or watching The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? I could follow Danny O’Reilly but since twitter doesn’t give enough space to have a serious discussion on music I might just end up tweeting “OMG! U R soooo cute!” several times a day. No one (Danny included) really needs to see that.
So please help me out here. What else can I do with Twitter? What cool applications am I missing? Why is my life a cold and meaningless void without it?
And why have I heard a low growling noise from the direction of Kahuna’s office ever since I typed the line about tweeting Danny O’Reilly?
BBC Archive Project – The Genesis of Doctor Who
“Here, we tell the story of the creation of ‘Doctor Who’ from the very beginning, starting with a report on the possibility of making science fiction for television and leading up to the moment a new drama series is announced in the pages of ‘Radio Times’.”
This is pretty cool. They have images, background notes, concept notes and other material from the very earliest days of Doctor Who. They also have a large assortment of video clips at Doctor Who:The Classic Series.
