Nerd speak part 2

Generally I don't feel the need to share my internet diversions with others but I couldn't resist posting this here, as it sits nicely with my language post of the other day and on a crappy day it made me laugh

enjoy

I am so 1336 check out teh stats on my ch4r4c3r!11!

You know you're getting old when you have to increasingly use Urban Dictionary to understand what people are talking about on the internet and no doubt sooner than later in the real world

bet Shakespeare would have loved all this bastardisation of language


I must admit I kind of do too, though am not brave enough to take on the vast majority of these new words and phrases

mastering English is enough for this old language challenged bugger

I'm useless with dates

Not surprising, for I am a mere male afterall

I do remember todays significance, in typical Bob fashion its music related

Happy NZ Music Month, Brent

The Wireless: Happy NZ Music Month, Brent

There's a lot I'd like to say about the recent development of Can West being granted 3 free radio frequencies for their failed experiement in a radio station that only plays NZ Music.

But I won't be writing about it - fortunately the link to Andrew Dubber's post pretty much covers the deal without the need for me to add more.

I shall say one thing, as a avid New Zealand music fan for the bulk of my life and one whose played NZ Music on a number of radio stations for over 21 years, worked in and for NZ (and multinational) record companies and for someone who has a extensive NZ music collection....

I hate NZ Music Month!!!!!!!

This fact won't stopping me filling 8 hours of radio time this month with 100% NZ Music

righto thats me for today, I got a bunch of old 7"s to dust off and listen too... Xpressway heaven today :)
