Such visual reinterpretation hasn't been seen since George Harrisons 'Got my mind set on you' from his album, 'Cloud Nine'. In the original it was some fey vision of clouds and suchlike, in the next version it was Rock God George in every frame.

What am I talking about?. The re-videoisation of the song Breakaway by Kelly Clarkson. First release video shows some kid in a car, and now, probably due to some unexpected popularity of the song, its Rock Chick Kelly on centre stage.

It aint right I tells ya...

Update: Stoopid I am Skywalker. They are two different songs, Breakaway and a new one.

Well well, a lesson learned, it never pays to assume you know a public figure, seems our esteemed Prime Minister is also IT Pro Evangelist, Microsoft UK

Little Johnny, seems I've misjudged you, forgive me?

God love those Scientists, apparently Coffee May Help Prevent Liver Cancer!

A study of more than 90,000 Japanese found that people who drank coffee daily or nearly every day had half the liver cancer risk of those who never drank coffee. The protective effect occurred in people who drank one to two cups a day and increased at three to four cups.

I was converting some of my old style silver disk music to mp3 in readyness for upcoming travels. One of the tunes was Hallelujah from Jeff Buckley's Grace album. I have to admit I welled up a little listening to it. An Incredibily moving song, both lyrically and in the performance by Jeff.

I heard there was a secret chord that David played and it pleased the Lord, but you dont really care for music do you?

Over on the Serverside the predictable bleatings are being made over the famous OO bashing DevX article.

Its almost slashdot like. And a disapointment that people dont forgo the easy criticisms and address whatever points that are valid. OO is not a panacea.

Watched 'OUTFOXED: RUPERT MURDOCH'S WAR ON JOURNALISM', nothing new but well documented. All I can hope is that in the passage of time the Right Wing fades away.

How can FOX News be considered News when from Rupert down the agenda is partisan?
