iTunes Sentience (pt 2)

By Hurricanes, iTunes, Music and Wellington

Gary Numan - Complex sleeveApologies for the lack of entries this week. The real world has intervened – but in a good way for a change. This sunny afternoon, preparing to take in my first two Fringe shows of the season, iTunes threw Gary Numan’s live version of Bombers at me, followed by New Order — Shellshock.

What a great way to start the weekend!

I’ll try and squeeze the Hurricanes and Cats in between shows and if I can pull that off I’ll be a very happy man.

Tonight’s Cricket

By black caps, Cricket and Sport

20/twenty, or 20–20, or whatever they call it officially got my vote this evening. Very cool. As a consumer that just committed to Saturday’s first ODI, I am thrilled at the West Indies fight-back. As a Black Caps fan my response has to be: ????

Other thoughts…

  • Chris Cairns was either wearing a shirt that was a little bit too small or he had a very enjoyable Christmas
  • I hope they iced Bravo up big-time as I want to see him at his best on Saturday
  • Chris Gayle’s afro is awesome — I love it. Like Jimi Hendrix without the headband.
  • Nobody can bowl straight under pressure except for Shane Bond!

The Revenge of Gaia
