I’m an organised kinda guy, I have a folder on my desktop called Blogstuff into which I put links to articles I want to mention or investigate further. Every now and then (more then than now) I go through it and clear out the stuff I’ve used and the stuff that, on a second read, doesn’t appeal anymore – that’s actually a side issue, the shortening of my attention span these days with so much information available and clamouring for my attention. So, without further ado, here are a few bits-n-bobs for ya: The Laws of Applause Clapping has long been the bond between audiences and performers, but is it losing its meaning? “The English also gave birth to the …

Just thisI rant and ramble a lot on here and I fear it only fair (do I love my alliterations or what) that this will get worse over the coming weeks. As ever, anything I find interesting on my web traversing I will share with you, but I will be somewhat preoccupied with whether or not I’ll have a job at the end of next month. Sorry I’m funny that way, I’m sure you understand. Ohh and can I claim ‘google-foxing’ as mine? Did I say it first? Google-foxing: repeating search referrals on your site – and hence propagating the likelihood of them reappearing as referrers – on purpose.

Tune of the MomentUpdated: Queens of the Stone Age – No One Knows This was looping on MTV2 every time I flicked it on last week and it’s embedded itself in my brain. Ohh yeah and Dave Grohl on drums really does kick the llama’s ass!
