I went to see these guys at the Half Moon at Putney and they were awesome

They were one of the best funk type bands I’ve seen in years. A great 10 piece who played faultlessly for a couple of hours. I was really impressed with them. Sadly there were only 30 people in the audience, which was just crazy in my view.

I’d certainly see them again.

And then I got this (Timex 1000)

The Timex 1000 is the US equivalent to the ZX81. I was given it when in Canada last week and it looks like it’s in pretty good shape actually. I’m going to be very careful about firing it up though as I don’t want to get the power supply wrong in any way. When it’s all up and running I’ll post some stuff about what I’m doing with it.

I’ve been waiting for this album for what seems like forever. The release date has been going back for a while now, or at least that’s my impression of it.

Anyway, finally it’s arrived. A CD and a DVD, both of which I’m really looking forward to.

Still waiting for the KDJ-One

So it feels like this has been ‘on the way’ for a very long time. There’s still no news in terms of a specific delivery timeline and it is a year overdue already. I’m still just hoping that it will eventually turn up. I guess I should be pleased that at least they’re staying in touch. When projects go silent it’s usually then that you know your money has gone down the toilet.

I’d like to think that I’m going to get my KDJ-One this year. Maybe.
