Musings of a musical nature.

Friends, Romans, Fl*sters, please excuse me while I ramble and witter in your direction.  On Friday night I watched a brilliant documentary about Kate Bush, one of the most amazing artists you will ever hear.  I'm a little bit of a fan, and after watching the show I dug out a couple of my CDs, and I came across a little gem called Deeper Understanding.  A wonderful song that explores the way we are 'turning to our computers like a friend'.  it's even more amazing when you consider it was written in 1989, when the internet was in it's infancy.

In a strange way I think it captures the way I have turned to my computer like a friend (I do promise there was no bodily neglect), I find it easier to express myself through my 'little black box' rather than face to face. It has allowed me to find friends all over the world, hell it gave me fandom and my Supernatural family.  It might not be what Kate intended when she was writing the song, but through this little pile of plastic and wires I hope I've found a little deeper understanding.

Right I promise that's it with the serious stuff!  Back to wibbling inanely next post, but for now I'll leave you with the song Deeper Understanding (the original version, the new cut is great but I still prefer the original)
