  • Hard News: Friday Music: So much music I…, in reply to Russell Brown,

    I consider myself of around average intelligence and have used an app before, so it should be easy right, but nothing, NOTHING, has made me feel as lost, hurt and confused as the Spotify UX. It’s likes it actively hates music, listening to music, or people who do in fact want to listen to music.

    I am genuinely relieved to confirm that it’s not just me.

    Bahaha, you guys have obviously never used Freegal! You could not imagine such a hostile user-interface.
    Having said that, I sometimes use Spotify and think I don’t like listening to music. “It’s all crap!” I think.

    And old mate of mine’s in new band Glass Boat, and they just made a live EP. Beautiful folksy stuff from the ’Naki. Have a listen for free on Bandcamp, and if you wanna buy, it’s only eight bucks. Bandcamp lets you buy and send as a gift, I'm sure someone you know would love it.

    There’s a wonderful book I bought in a second-hand shop a few months back of NZ Railways anecdotes, taken from historic railways periodicals.

    I can’t tell you the title, because I lent it to Mum and she won’t give it back!

    *I will find out though

    One of my recent faves is an out-of-print children's book documenting the lives of two children living on a lighthouse on Farewell Spit in the 1960s.

    A Birthday at the Lighthouse. It's all here to read online.

    In my experience, a full latex onesie is advisable.

    I came up with hageriography some time ago,
    which is writing about bad people
    (as opposed to hagiography, natch)

    Conversely, this is a Hagarograph .

    To be fair, “Lorde” was buzzier in 2013. Another word should get a shot this year.

    Seems pretty buzzy to me...
