My top playlist

Ok, I bought an ipod once and have been cursed with itunes ever since for my music collection. Today, again, itunes decided to reset everything and delete my playlists. This is annoying, especially if one is daft enough, like me, to DJ from my playlists.

For the record the ipod was flawed and lacked a decent bass output, which in the end drove me to distraction and joined the landfill que at ebay.

I have a last.fm profile so my record of highest plays is in the web, however, I thought it was time to write down my hallowed tracks; my desert island discs, as the playlist that is most annoying to lose each time is my list of favourite tracks. The first three are my top three, the rest are in no order.

Rhythm on the Loose - Break of Dawn
Matt Monro - On days like these
Richard H. Kirk - Freezone

Elcho - Stop the world
Outrage - That piano track
Luvdup - Jiggery Pokery
a-ha - Foot of the mountain
A Man Called Adam - Estelle
Les Reed - Girl on a Motorcycle
Walter Stott - When Eight Bells Toll
Chantal Kreviazuk - Leaving on a jet plane
Gary Numan - I Die You Die [Alternative Version]
Sub Sub - Space Face

Actually, I have reached this point and realise this is a bigger job than I thought, curse you itunes! I shall update this list as I update my playlist. I shall probably explain why the tracks mean to me what they do, in the style of Nick Hornby.

Dell KB522 Wired Business Multimedia Keyboard

Now I have a 24" monitor on my laptop I find that the £5 keyboard is really not up to it. Hence the Dell KB522 Wired Business Multimedia Keyboard. Very nice. I have started my degree in Creative and Professional Wiring this year and think I have a lot of typing ahead, hence the keyboard. It was only once I got this I realised how hard I had to hit the keys on the old one, as first of all with this one it hurt I was hitting them so hard. Pretty much sorted on the computer front now. I bought Dell hoping for longevity from this item. I don't like to buy new stuff all the time from an environmental standpoint.

Part 1 - from a radio to the Pioneer

Part 1 | Part 2 | My stereo in June 2015

This is no boast but I love my stereo. Having a good stereo is the centre of my life and my only essential possession for someone who is not really into possessions.

Early days

I started my stereo life with a radio my Grandad gave me. Then I got my Dad's old setup (record deck and Sinclair System 2000 compact amp) which I added another one of my Grandads radio's to.

My Dad's amp was like this only black:

The Pioneer compact hi-fi

When I got a proper job I was able to start saving for something better and I bought a Pioneer compact Hi-fi which after a time I really started to hate. The Pioneer quality was lacking from this unit and really a lot of it was for show, like the twin display spectrum analyser. I hated the way the cassette and cd decks clunked about. Many things frustrated me with it, like th…
