Busking tonight (21st November)

So the plan is to do more busking on here tonight about 8ish. Might be some special guests. Pop in for a few songs if you want, but please don’t feel like you have to hang around all evening if you get bored. I am still having fun even if no-one’s watching!

Ustream has been playing up a bit today so we might end up using something else, but in any case it will just appear on the right of my home page.

If you watch through ustream it means you can go in the chat room too. Here

This is my notes of songs I can play (big version)
Songs i can play

The ones on the right are things I should be able to play. The ones on the left are ideas/things I used to be able to play then forgot!

It will be nice to see you…

The 13th November

This post is for joe. For a long time joe has been making a website about his days, and he tries lots of different ways of doing updates quickly and easily. His university project was based around the idea of getting pictures onto a website really quickly and easily. I have been trying to convince him for a while to convert to something like WordPress for making his site, but he has resisted because it doesn’t actually make things much easier.

Then I discovered a flickr plugin for wordpress. This makes the updating process really simple. You use the flickr uploader, which sends all your pictures to flickr and resizes them for you. Then you just go into wordpress and you pull in your flickr pictures from a list of thumbnails. Brilliant!

Here is an example of how easy it is to use:

The midwife came and did a “heel prick”. That means they take blood to do tests. Lots of screaming.

Last Christmas Tim bought me a Sufjan Stevens CD called Chrismas songs. I didn’t listen to it much last year, so I am copying it ready for this Christmas. It comes in this box with a songbook and stickers!

Lunchtime. Watch a program about squid.

Go for a walk.

Which gives me some time to play the guitar.

That was so easy!

Busking Online

That was fun!

If you came on here between 8 and 10pm on the 14th november you would have seen me trying to busk. Rudi was meant to turn up but he didn’t get here. GregĀ also made a quick appearance at the end!

It would be really good to see some other people use ustream – let me know if you have any ideas.

i might do it again next week…
