So, I was going to do a post about how I discovered the ultimate debugging tool: Send everyone away, out of the house, to another city. Then Put on Beethoven's 9th Symphony so loud you can feel it in the bones. Then flush all caches, wipe all previous imports and merge the different versions of the same program and follow the line of execution down the path of least resistance. It works!

But no. I overheard a great little bluesy riff on the radio whilst having dinner with Cara Sposa. I signalled to listen. She said "that's cool". It was just loud enough to make out a few of the lyrics. Google suppled the source. And then I discovered... I've found an anthem! I feel like a teenager again! I actually have found a song where every single line speaks to me right now, right how my state of mind is parallaxed. This hasn't happened since I was seventeen and heard Bowie's "Bewlay Brothers" (ETA: or was that "Quicksand"? Whatever it was, it was absolutely the final word ever and forever. I'm sure of that ;) ). (all this must be a sign of impending senility) Anyway, here it is. David Gray's "Draw the Line":

A poem has already emerged. I see a short story soon.

I would highly, highly recommend his album "Flesh". Angry, so very angry.

Well, you recommended Florence + the Machine to me, so I'm inclined to take your word on that. Thanks. He has a lot of output. And yes, very angry.
