Make a prediction about how our use of technology will change in the next five years

by on Nov.30, 2011, under Plinky

Electric cars, it’s going that way anyway, but the turning point, will be charging points and FAST charging points, like 3/4 charge in 10 mins or so… I also think that a major supermarket needs to install sone charging points and the others will follow, same with hotels, so if Tesco & Holiday Inn installed a few then every other supermarket will follow and if it was free for people spending £5-£10 at the supermarket or free for those staying at the hotel over night… Things like that will help people pick them up quicker…

What’s the longest you’d want to live without internet access?

by on Nov.23, 2011, under Plinky

I would always have thought i couldn’t cope with out the internet, i’ve been on it in some shape or form since 1995. But a few months ago i went on a 3 day holiday where i couldn’t get an internet signal on my phone (nor any signal) so i just turned it off… It meant i couldn’t keep up with what friends were upto, and i had to wait to upload some of the photos i had taken, but… I didn’t miss it too much…

Describe what your handwriting looks like

by on Nov.16, 2011, under Plinky

I’ll do better than describe, I’ll show you.

You can tell why i like computers. My Writing has always been bad but has got worse as I’ve gotten old and write less. My main excuse is i’m dysgraphic with mild dyspraxic tendancies. The dysgraphia tends to affect my writing (as you can see) and my spelling to a point. The spelling isn’t as much of an issue as it used to be. The dypraxia just makes me slightly clumsy and thats it really

Old, abandoned buildings: Cool or creepy?

by on Nov.09, 2011, under Plinky

I’ll start with the simple version – they are Cool… but can be creepy, but cool over rides the creepy part. A month or so ago, we did some photos of a friends band (see main blog) and they were taken on the top floor of a mill that was un-used with someone bashing in a door, and lots of “satanic” graffiti was really good graffiti. When i was younger (early-mid-teens) there was 2 houses near ours that were abandoned, and doors & windows bricked up – and you could climb over a low roof into the house, and used to have fun walking around – never destructive though. not sure they are still there or not anymore, i wouldn’t mind trying to get some photos of them

Name three bands or musicians that you hope to see live some day.

by on Nov.02, 2011, under Plinky

I don’t want to put down any of the bands/musicians that are on this list, but i have seen most of the bands i really wanna see, Rob Zombie touring the UK and Foo Fighters in Milton Keynes almost finished the list, i’d love to have seen bands like Nirvana & The Beatles but it was never to be, if they hadn’t have re-formed recently i would have also had Carter USM on this list, but seeing as they’ve played 10 gigs since they re-formed and i’ve only missed 2 of them, i can’t complain.

So here are the 3 that are left on my I want to see list

Polysics – was a 4 piece from Japan, toured here many times, but twice after i “discovered” them, unfortionatly both times i was nowhere near where they were playing, hoping they will come back sooner than later (wonder if i can smuggle my camera in)

Colin Hay – Was in Men at Work, mostly famous for “I Come from a Land Down Under”, but Scrubs brought him to me with some of his solo stuff, which is really really good. He doesn’t seem to tour the UK as much as the US & Aus – even though he’s Scottish

Kimya Dawson – came to my vision via Juno, and heard loads more, usually quite comical in some ways, but some songs are quite sweet, including one about he mom being really ill, and one about 9/11 – she was meant to tour the UK with a band last year, but never made it over, and said on twitter she has started to be scared of flying, but shes playing Aus this year so hopefully she’s over that and will be coming the UK.
