Testing 1 2 3

This is just to test how to post pictures in a Web Log. Seems to be quite straight forward if you use Hello from Picasa with the added advantage that it is free :-)If you are interested, this is a picture of me playing with my band Sideburner at the Half Moon in Putney.

What's wrong with English?

So, in order to post a comment on my friend Tony Cocks' Web Log I have to create one myself do I? Well if I must. But why oh why must the community insist on calling it "Blogging"? It's such a silly, lazy and contrived verb. So on here I will be hosting a web log. And rather than "blogging" about topics, I will be "writing" about them. You may recall being taught about "writing" when you were at school. When you were about 4 years old. The Internet may be a relatively new medium but it's not a new language. And the supreme irony for me is that the spell checker on where this web log is hosted doesn't understand "blogging" and suggests flogging as the correct spelling. Well if I was Robert Kilroy-Silk I would probably say that flogging isn't good enough for these bloggers. (please don't think I agree with anything that Kilroy says - it's a joke :-)
