What's the Frequency Kenneth?
"What's the frequency, Kenneth?"
is your Benzedrine, uh-huh
I was brain-dead, locked out, numb,
not up to speed
I thought I'd pegged you an idiot's dream
Tunnel vision from the outsider's screen
I never understood the frequency, uh-huh
You wore our expectations like an armored suit, uh-huh

I'd studied your cartoons, radio,
music, TV, movies, magazines
Richard said,
"Withdrawal in disgust is not the same as apathy"
A smile like the cartoon,
tooth for a tooth
You said that irony was the shackles of youth
You wore a shirt of violent green, uh-huh
I never understood the frequency, uh-huh

"What's the frequency, Kenneth?"
is your Benzedrine, uh-huh
Butterfly decal, rear-view mirror,
dogging the scene
You smile like the cartoon,
tooth for a tooth
You said that irony was the shackles of youth
You wore a shirt of violent green, uh-huh
I never understood the frequency, uh-huh

You wore our expectations like an armored suit, uh-huh
I couldn't understand
You said that irony was the shackles of youth, uh-huh
I couldn't understand
You wore a shirt of violent green, uh-huh
I couldn't understand
I never understood,
don't f*ck with me, uh-huh

What a Wonderful view of a Woman

SEXY Abi Titmuss vamps it up on a night out — and shows her transformation from demure nurse is now complete.
The ex-girlfriend of shamed TV presenter John Leslie turned heads in a see-through top, mini-skirt and saucy boots.
It follows revelations of three-in-a-bed romps, dirty dancing and signing as the face of a soft-porn satellite channel.

The troubles in celebrity land...


If you got this and you could do something like this it's all about the 35mm camera and what is the Digital Media Push..

I was going to link to Philip Greenspun for some reason yesterday but because of time is running on short and because my desk top apps decided to hang yet again REBOOT...
I have now totally forgotten the threads I was following and the discource 'abberation'
So here's a lap top configuration ideal that Philip wrote.. maybe in the future I'll pick it up but don't count on it.

Philip and four legged friend seven years ago..but who's a Canon Man

My Travel Tip to Manhattan New York and what happened to me on the New York Metro circa October 1999..
Get a map it's not like the london underground it's all up and down the island but if your hotel is in Queens (east of Manhattan) you have to connect, you have to buy the equivilent of a season ticket for each day or a period which also I did not realise. I was hoping to get up to 5th Avenue but because I went for the weekend in 1999., I never did.. I got lost trying to find the way back to the hotel and found myself at Rockaway Beech instead of New Jamica the connection for JFK and the International Airport.
I visited The Empire State building and got some wonderful pictures of The World Trade Centre then and a hand drawn portrait by a china man in 7th Avenue, The big electronics shop in Manhattan was closed, would you beleive, but I was showed a Canon digital camera which was all the buzz back then I took my Pentax LX and a couple of lenses including a fish eye lens which was essential to get as much in the picture. Then I walked down to get the view from The World Trade Centre but found it closed??? then because I messed up my connection back to The Holiday Inn I never got to see the night life.
I asked for directions from two New York Cops in lower Manhatten and because they were new to the area they could not say, not a very good ad for the state!
There are one or two inter-active map you can get now which can be transfered to a PDA (Palm, mobile,etc.)

Microsoft Media Player "Security Patch" Changes EULA Big Time Posted by CmdrTaco on Sat Jun 29, '02 12:23 PM
from the under-the-guise-of-security dept.
MobyTurbo writes "In an article on BSD Vault a careful reader posts that in the latest Windows Media Player security patch, the EULA (the "license agreement" you click on) says that you give MS the right to install digital rights management software, and the right to disable any other programs which may circumvent DRM on your computer." So if you want your machine secure, you also want microsoft to have free reign on your PC...
Geek.com rant on version 9 no uninstall

The advisory committee is expected to endorse a proposal requiring Microsoft to ship two versions of Windows to computer makers, which account for most sales of the operating system, for installation in computers sold in Europe, the sources say.

One version would have Microsoft Windows Media Player tied in as it is now. The other would have it stripped out.

The aim is to free computer makers to sell Windows bundled with rival audiovisual software such as RealNetworks’ RealPlayer or Apple's Quicktime, the sources say.

Microsoft says Windows Media Player is an inherent part of the operating system and cannot be stripped out. RealNetworks used demonstrations at an EU hearing to argue it can be.

Have you seen any really modern art recently - plenty of scope there then! Well Jack has quite a style sort of a fifties time when things were perhaps seemingly laid back which is wrong and wont be shared by our parents here in the UK homepage
