Better late than never! Not in all things. It doesn't work as a generalism. But this is better late than never. It's a lovely day, due to crashing out before midnight last night due to a combination of tiredness and wine, as I mentioned in the intermission, I was up before seven this morning, it was great. I've decided to change my schedule policy thing, right now, before writing this. I won't be all about having the next day's blog automatically posting at 5am. I'll think of them as having been due already on the day I do them, then I will be inclined to do them quicker, as I won't be able to think of them as not due yet.
This could revolutionise my ability to get up in the morning. Too often have I not gone to bed because I haven't written the next day's It Is What It Is yet. This way, the next day's It Is What It Is won't be written until the next day, so... as long as it doesn't end up that I can't go to bed because I haven't written the previous day's It Is What It Is yet. We'll see. I think, if I recall correctly, that what I am switching to is pretty much what I used to do years ago. I think I started the auto-publishing at 5am when I started preparing posts in advance for when I was away, and also to cover up how late I was going to bed. Ah, hmmm... so I did them late then too... Well, I'll just have to try. Doing them late and tired just makes it require a lot more effort for inferior results, I'm sure I've said this before. Anyway, let's get on with some actual content, shall we?
Yukio Hatoyama, I salute you! A news suggests that the Japanese prime minister's approval ratings are tumbling because of his unconventional ideas about what sort of outfit is a good thing to wear. If this is true, then, Japanese public, you are are disappointing as the British public! I can't really say 'hey, I like his style'. I don't really. But that's not the point. He's not going about in a Ku Klux Klan outfit or an SS uniform. This is like Michael Foot and his duffel coat all over again. And poor show from the BBC - they say that one outfit in particular has attracted more negative attention than the rest, but it's not one of the two they show. I had to hunt it down myself. And it was easy-peasy.
Venture capitalist Guy Hands has raised more money to help him destroy EMI, according to a news! The news says that the debt-ridden company was in danger of being taken over until he got some more cash. It also says "in common with much of the recorded music industry, EMI has been hit hard by illegal downloads and falling album sales", although the link between illegal downloads and lost income is not proven. Strangely it doesn't mention all the talent that has been leaving since he took over, from Radiohead to Paul McCartney and many more besides, specifically citing the rubbish way Guy Hands is running the company as their reason for leaving.
that's all from me for now
see you around
