Every Thursday, Wondering why I drew a hat on a frog.


; That "Me, Me, Me" Bit

This week's Newsletter is being written whilst listening to the new EP from Hitomi Yaida, where she's recovered some more of her older tracks.
The 7-track mini album "Keep Going" is available on Apple Music, and presumably Spotify, too, and is part of her 20th anniversary celebrations.

Incidentally, the little volume/button thing on my Earpods seems to have busted at some point, this week.
It was probably the other day when, whilst lifting them gently from Pikachu's ears, they got caught and snagged poor Pikachu off his little shelf placement, all the way down under the shelves, down behind the old PC that I use as my bedside cabinet.
Pikachu used "Hide"
It wasn't very effective.

Had to pull things out, dig down there, and reach right around the pile of VHS Tapes in order to rescue poor little Pikachu.

What's that? I need to consider copying all the important stuff from the giant pile of VHS tapes, and then probably get rid of all the damn things?

... True.

Pikachu's now back in his usual spot, sitting neatly beside Totokeke (KK Slider) and Sonic. Although I might consider adding a small blob of blu-tack under his arse, to keep him in place in future.

That would mean having to buy some blu-tack, though.
Haven't had any of that lying around for a good few years.

Like it or Loath it, it's happening like Brexit.


There's been a lot of chatter about killing off the License Fee, this week, with even Gary Lineker chipping in to suggest it's probably about time that the BBC switched to subscriptions.
Seems the common concensus on the forum, too.
