this blog is box-fresh. right now there’s not a lot here and the sides are a bit stiff but there’s plenty of room in the toe. the smell of newness is intoxicating. you can look at it and try it on but please don’t scuff it up; at least until it’s not so shiny.

( nb. when i write stuff you are implicitly invited to share your thoughts in the form of comments. please don’t wait to be asked to contribute.)

    Man, I remember when you first got a pair of these bad boys. I was outrageously jealous. Damn, I remember that segment, too. Love it. I loved the Stereolab song better – Ping Pong – but great none the less.

    • al, great to hear from you dude. do you remember when my mum videoed over the beginning of that first marc johnson section with an episode of emmerdale? gutted.

    Yeah, tragic. That sucked the big one!

    Can’t believe you’re a Mac guy, too.

    • i’m an intel era convert, but my mbp is pretty much my favourite possession. just out of interest, how did you find this? are you on facebook? anyway, hope things are well with you and the family. take it easy.

        Ah, you missed the halcyon days of PPC. I got the first PowerMac G5 when it came out. Now that was a machine! We both turned out to be Mac guys, whodathunkit.

        I’m low key on the Facebook (I also keep calling it ‘the Facebook’, even though I know it’s just Facebook. I even annoy myself). I joined up to read what some of my family where blathering about. So yeah, I did a search for you and got the link from your front page. I’ll add you, if that’s cool with you, but I really want to keep away from using it all that often, so don’t want every guy I knew years ago trying to catch up with me. I even use a nickname to escape the shame of being a Facebookian ;)

      • fair do’s, you’re pseudonymity is safe with me.
