I usually have several hits by the time I get to the office each morning, but nobody wanted to read this morning. While it may be a busy morning for you all, let me tell you it's pretty slow for me. I have plans to have lunch with Celanie in half an hour, but until I get the word from above, I don't have any projects to work on.
If nothing has materialized after lunch, I guess I'll go back to hacking up automation for my press monitoring duties. I think I'm going to concentrate less on scraping the websites, and more on parsing all the articles I collect. It seems like a sort of difficult problem to determine the subject of the article, though, so I'm still going to be limited in the automated observations I can make about a media clip. I can count each word and show the most common ones, but that won't be completely effective, so...
And I'm sure that sounds like blah blah blah, so for your entertainment I instead provide a list of songs that I would like to learn and seem within reach, and a list of things that I want.
Songs that I would like to be able to play on command soon:
She Loves You
A Hard Day's Night
Love Me Do
Yoshimi vs. The Pink Robots
Do You Realize
Rock 'n Roll Music
Uncle John's Band
3 Blues routines that I'm learning
Stuff that I want:
A new laptop
A new apartment
A better acoustic guitar
A black leather belt
Computer speakers for my office
Setting Free the Bears by John Irving
My Name is Charlotte by Tim Wolff
Paul McCartney Tickets
Someone to buy my car
