nb. – White Noise is an attempt to provide a weekly update on my life.
Last week/this week:
last week was good. i managed to do my three days of work well without too much hassle. we had a good time. my secret meeting on Thursday was exciting and has given me lots to think about!
tonight i am going to the deep event the salvation army run once a month in Glasgow. I have heard much about it but have never been so it should be fun. tomorrow we are doing something family wise but not sure what.
this week is quite normal. I am working Monday to Friday, probably from home on Wednesday. The car needs a service on Wednesday. on Thursday i think i am off to see Andrew Bird with rich, should be fun week really.
Main Idea In Your Hand
Lots of stuff about thePROJECT:2 (In the flesh)
and fingerprint resistant glasses lenses for the parents of toddlers.
(Jacob just climbed on my head and manager to obscure 50% of the vision in my glasses left lense)
Best laid plans:
I put my contacts in this morning. the left one seemed funny.
i took it out and put it back in. it seemed sore
I could feel it had moved but couldn’t find it in my eye.
My wife came and looked and told me it had folded over and was at the top of my eye. She managed to pick it out. It was then we discovered the contact lense has split in two halves while in my eye and we spend twenty minutes while she then picked out the other half. (Sore as her nails are quite long!)
yeah but i am glad she did it. so i need to get new contacts on monday.
I don’t wanna:
get out of bed this morning.
so now everything has been delayed or truncated. today is not as i had planned last night.
A collection of Literature:
Reading chapter three of Slavoj ZIZek’s “the fragile absolute.”
He has moved on the place of the art and the sacred, how in modernism art was used to take the place of the sacred. how postmodern art has embraced trash, and how this incompassing of trash has done away with the place of the sacred meaning post modern art need to support the existance of a place for the scared while replacing the art with trash. This is as a result of the perversions become envolped into mainstream which has done away with the job perversions used to do.
this week i went kinda old school and burned some old cds to mp3 so this was the week of –
the Gotee Brothers – ERACE
Earthsuit – Kaleidoscope Superior
Rich Mullins – The Canticles of the Plains
The Album Leaf back catalogue
the stand out album i did listen too this week was Rufus Wainwright’s Want One Album. Glorious, over the top and georgous. It is a beautiful album, and just wonderful music.
5 words to describe how i am feeling:
watching the sound of music
