Everett True details what he did tonight instead of watching Australian indie/dance band Cut Copy ply their watered-down version of 80s New Order.

  • I cursed this fucking dry cough again. And again. And again.
  • I laboured through tiredness.
  • I recorded a new video – and wondered what has happened to that recording John Steel Singers made with myself on a secondary narrative.
  • I wondered once more about old friends (no, not that one).
  • I listened to The Wall. Remarkably quiet.
  • I played chess: online chess where trolling is half the joy.
  • I placed one foot in front of another, one foot in front of another.
  • I vowed to become even more addicted, listening to more of this. (A singer whose image I have always instinctively hated, feeling that it mirrors a complete cynical lack of authenticity and money-grabbing cultural appropriation.) And wondered about the moment the sea-change occurred.
  • I wondered precisely which electronic circuit the ants that occasionally stroll across my computer screen live in.

    I forgive Everett his Avril Lavigne comment because of his write up of Ballet Shoes– Heartbeat Overdrive in the recent 2013 round-up. Pure joy that track!
