Just an excerpt from my column on nsp. Seemed relevant *shrugs*.
Ok a few weekends back I went bushwalking… in 38 degree heat… up a mountain (750m above sea level). yeaaaaah FUN (*dripping sarcasm*), especially without anyone else my own age there.
The entire time, theres very little in the way of technology, fucking painful amounts of physical activity, you get the picture. Even the car trip there and back wasnt great cause the music playing just about the entire time was dads, so generation above me, and bad taste at that.
Now there was a point to telling you all this, a very good point infact. Today I was thinking not about how reliant we have become on technology (im not someone standing by shaking my head in dissaproval), no but on how TOTALLY FUCKING AWESOME technology is.
After that bushwalk, the first thing i did when I got home was turn on the computer, open winamp, and start some awesome tunes. Fuck, just opening notepad brought a huge grin to my face. The time without it made everything so much sweeter, and the fact that I go out and do other stuff makes the experience better, removes any guilt from sitting infront of the computer for days on end. Its great.
Just thought Id share this with everyone (was commenting on it to felix, he directed me at my column with a giant finger of authority!).
