This idea was pointed out to me yesterday, and now I can't stop thinking about it:

The music industry makes more money on existing music than on new music.

Marketing budgets go to get Country Roads featured in six films in one summer season, rather than to promote new artists.

Modern copyright law means that these companies can keep exploiting this backlog at the expense of new music for 100 years, but it's worse than that.

Anyone in London: *Free* 80W bookshelf speakers (Mordaunt Short M10). Bought them for a tenner without looking at 'collection only'. Probly worth 40-50 quid. Keep em, sell em, give em away, whatever. They're in Richmond. DM me for details. Boost OK.

Bought an expensive electrical item from John Lewis. They sent it by DHL to be delivered. DHL have lost it and this is the email they sent me when I queried the parcel status. They literally don't care. "Apologies for any inconvenience"; what a joke.

Morning all. Anyone fancy doing my job for me today??

My father in law phones a couple of times a week but 99.9% of the time is actually trying to call someone else called Luke that he has confused me with. WHilst it is nice to have a little chat it is always a bit odd as he doesn't realise for a while! Next time I see him I really need to change my contact details in his phone.

Has anyone else in England noticed store managers in Co-op supermarket wearing bodycams or is this just a #Cambridge thing?

It doesn't seem to happen in Mid Suffolk, nor the late night opening Co-Op on the next estate along from where I live (I've not used the stores in other areas of Ipswich). must be fairly recent as I've used the Cambridge shop a few weeks ago and the chap didn't have a bodycam then...

Up early (for a Saturday anyway) to watch the men’s Olympic cycling road race.
