I had my bag nicked from the pub recently and i’m only just getting life back to normal. Oyster card, house keys, motorbike keys, sunglasses, glasses, jacket… and my laptop.

There’s an interesting debate developing about how we manage our digital self. With the increase in social sites; think Facebook, Flickr, LinkedIn, Last.FM, Delicious, etc… your social map is probably growing faster than you think.

I ended up playing the theme tune to an classic kids cartoon in the office today, and a few of us chatted about how we loved all the old TV themes and great intros.
On their official site i found this gem:
Benni Lees got in contact with PigeonStreet.com and gave us this information:
My real name is Marion and I wrote the music for Pigeon Street. I am a classically trained musician and in the seventies I had a rock band called Soulyard, in which I player the Bass. We had a sax player called Ruthie Smith who is now working as a psychotherapist, an American trumpeter called Jim Dvorak, a guitarist called Jonny Meringue (also American), a pianist called Laka Koc, a conga player called Linda Malone and a drummer called Nigel Watson. I live in Edinburgh and work as a pianist.
Now I am 53 years old with a fifteen year old son who is a singer and a daughter who plays the harp. They both loved pigeon street when they were little. My wish is for the world to be a peaceful place.
Obviously the media has changed dramatically in the past 20 years with the “End Credit Squeeze” now a regular part of a channels marketing weaponry.
I’ll leave Charlie Brooker to give you his view on the new end-device. Wonder what he makes of the theme to the new Knight Rider. “Shit” i hope.
This is from his excellent BBC Four show, Screenwipe.

I’m dumping stuff here that doesn’t warrant a full blog post, kinda like a scrapbook.I’m really into it. It’s quick and easy to set-up, you get a Bookmarklet… and you’re quickly posting.
I’ve also added it to the Blogroll, and you can check it out:
Ever wondered what the most misquoted film quotes ever were? The most bizarre mental disorders? Or the top 15 manipulated photographs? There’s loads of good stuff available on The List Universe.
Take a look for yourself:
So i’ve finally got my own blog. The plan is to keep this site a kinda scrap book, and i’ll be filling it up with good creative and design, digital ideas, and other stuff… but we’ll see how that works out.
