The Missing Monkey, with yours truly. Listen, enjoy, and laugh at the things I don't know!
Greetings Fellow Human Meatsacks,. This week the wild and groovy extravaganza of Geek General Knowledge takes us from the suns of krypton to the depths of the deepest barrel, and keeps digging. Though that's not to say anyone knows anything anymore. Is it possible nobody knows nothing?

This is amazing. Mars, not as alien as you'd think.
 
This stunning scene was captured by the cameras on +NASA's Mars Exploration Rover, Opportunity. Find out why this landscape has been named Pillinger Point by the rover's science team http://bbc.in/1vrkApL

So, I've been doing this thing, this blog on hunting out the hidden really good  music on You-Tube. Having spent a lot of time doing it, I thought I'd share it.

http://foundit.jara23.co.uk/
One of the pleasures of this blog is finding talent where they are obviously the next big thing, ideally before they've actually made it. One of those that's most definitely in need of watching is Jet Tangerine. Unlike many of the others featured on here, she's one of the few that offers a large ...

Mr B? Shudder I've seen him live and there's something sinister about his attitude towards women. His stage persona was all about protecting women cos they're weaker than you and the audience was buying into it.

I'd recommend Professor Elemental if you want chaphop - I've seen him live, too, and he was lots of fun!

So, the new jobis going well, which has meant actually quite a lot of time on social media; the problem is it's also meant needing to create a whole new identity, as I get a handle on what it's like to live in a digitially-connected world. This has mant that much of my work and posts have gone there.

HOWEVER: I do plan to make a concerted effort to keep all things updated over the next few months.... lets see how that goes!

So, I've started this little blog called found it. It's a blog about the unknown musicians on you-tube that people might enjoy. I trawl through it, so you don't have too.

This week is Passenger, a British Folk Artist, who's lyrics and voice are powerful and moving.

Check him out, and while your at it, check out the rest of the blog as well!

#passenge #youtub #foundit  
Passenger is the stage name of Michael David Rosenberg, now a solo artist since the band Passenger dissolved in 2009. Since then Passenger has kept on making music, playing to venues up and down the UK. His lyrics are smooth and poinient, which coupled with his unique voice makes these tracks ...

What he said.
 
An Open Letter to UKIP from a hard working immigrant.

Dear UKIP —

I am an immigrant who works my backside off giving you and yours pastoral care as a parish priest. I'm available 24/7 for pastoral emergencies. I welcome your children into the world. I send your dead to God with care, love, and dignity. I marry your sons and daughters for a pittance compared with what you pay for dresses and reception venues. Through my side job as a teacher of theology, I educate your young. As a parent, I cook and clean for the after school club that supports and teaches your children and grandchildren. My congregations feed your destitute when right wing governments let them fall through the cracks. I support your honest poor and ill, as well as your homegrown lazy and feckless, through my taxes which cover the bill for your dole. I am your much-vaunted "British taxpayer". I am sending your campaign literature back because I neither want nor need you to tell me what a danger I am to your society. I loathe the xenophobic values you stand for. I loathe your continuous attacks on generosity and decency. I loathe your lack of gratitude for all that immigrants do to keep this society running and successful. And I pray to the God of this "Christian country" that his spirit of wide open love will triumph at this election over every brand of backward small-mindedness and fear.

Yours most sincerely,
William Ingle-Gillis

My Life. This is exactly it. Even if I'm not in the industry any more, this is precisely what it's like with parishoners, and clergy.
 
Developer vs designer? Yes!
