Of Facebook and new music IP: 188.8.131.52 Posted on November 8, 2016 at 09:12:26 AM by Martin
After a few weeks of mostly sorting out family business, I'm back on the musical again. I now have a story, a bunch of characters, about 4 songs finished, another few in process. I decided that Facebook, the FB account that is, is a bit of a waste of time. Like shouting in a big echoey hall and hearing your own voice and those of many of your dullest neighbours. I'm also pig-sick of people banging on about Brexit/ Clinton/ Trump/ Corbyn etc etc and indeed ya-de-da.
I haven't cancelled the account but I've moved my main activity over to my Facebook Page: "Cleaners from Venus / Martin Newell." There I will be posting up bit of music, the odd poem and news snippets. It's also far more international and friendly. Facebook in fact seems like just a bigger version of my local internet forum;full of water-cooler non-moments, workplace time-wasters, laptop politicians, closet dictators, whiners and twats. I need to get stuff done. See you iover there, if you're around. Replies:
