Open Channel D

I did something this morning I haven't done for weeks. I went to bed before 0700, and woke up before midday. Then I did something I haven't done for years. Watched a Man from U.N.C.L.E film - The Spy in the Green Hat.

It's one of those movies I grew up with, but could never remember anything about. Great fun - cold war, high camp, low plot, high tech, James Bond spoof. Oddly, it's worn better than Get Smart.

I tried to capture it, but once again the software locked up, as I half expected it would. So from now on, all captures in MPEG2, at least until I can get more stable software. Or a mac.
Nick has recorded a song for Gallow's Hill. It's fairly typical of his stuff - the lyrics are the most important part, the melody is piano led, and the whole track could do with a damn good remix.

Nick is a good songwriter who wants to be a better producer. I'm a good producer who wants to be a better songwriter. Sounds like a team to me.

It remains to be seen whether his song about a vengeful god or my song about terrorism gets the most hostile response from American's who think they're liberal.
If I'm going to be self employed, I'd much rather it be as a remixer than a technician. I'll have to investigate the possibility.

However, right now it's nearly 1700, and, having got up at 0800 for the first time in a month, my eyelids are drooping and my mouth is yawning. Time for a little nap.
