Our local Fox news anchor, Hope Woodside, tried on a new look last night. 'Just got out of the shower' hair with a low buttoned white top almost showing cleavage. Now I like Hope - a lot - I think she's a babe. But given that I live in Mormonia, I'm sure someone will have something to say about this. Most of the days she gets it just right but she does occasionally have some way-off days when it looks like she's pissed off the makeup lady. You can tell those days - her rouge or blusher is a radioactive orange. Either that or the camera operator lost control of the colour.
I tell you something - if you didn't see the opening ceremony to the Beijing Olympics tonight, you missed out. It was just incredible. I thought the Australian opening ceremony was good 8 years ago. The Chinese have move the bar so high that it's hard to conceive how any nation after this is going to be able to come even half way close to the sheer spectacle and quality of what we were presented with tonight.
Spotify is one of the interweb's big mysteries to me at the moment. Every time I ask someone to explain it to me, all I get is "dude it's freakin awesome!". Ok but why? What is it that makes it so awesome? It seems to me like the Papa Murphy's of the music world (the pizza company that don't deliver, and when you pick it up, it's not cooked)
Spotify seems to have a wide range of mainstream music that you can't own, and can't listen to unless you have an unlimited data connection (no cellphone company does those any more), are in range of wifi or have a hard-wired network. So you can't really listen to it on a motorbike. Or in a car. Or on a plane. Or in a train.
Which to me seems - well - pointless?
Plus, if you don't own the music you're paying for, then Spotify can pull an Amazon on you and just arbitrarily take away what you've paid for.
My mp3 player on the other hand - 32Gb of music there, in the palm of my hand. 12 solid days…
