My computer died!

Okay, I won't know for sure until tomorrow, when I take it to the Apple Geniuses, but it's not looking good!

For the last week or so, my (almost) 6-year-old iMac G5 started making these funny noises every time I turned it on. Then this morning, I got the question mark folder of doom! It wouldn't even go to the log in screen, so I restarted a few times. Then I unplugged it, plugged it back in and it worked. I backed up everything on my desktop onto an external hard drive, because I'm guessing things won't turn out well tomorrow. A friend of mine said his girlfriends computer died when the question mark folder appeared. OMG what'll I do, I can't even go 3 days without internet!!! =(

Anyway, thanks for visiting and sorry for the inconvenience. I'll be back as soon as I have this whole computer situation sorted out. Farewell for now!

It's official... MY COMPUTER HAS DIED!

I could replace the dead hard drive for about $380, but it would be rather pointless to save a nearly 6-year-old slow machine with only 1gb of ram. Everything I installed and all my settings and iTunes stuff would be gone anyway, so it would be easier to start from scratch with a fancy new laptop. Anyway, as I said before... Farewell for now!

Have you ever wanted to see the rest of the cool stuff in my little cubicle? Now you can! I recently joined Pinterest, another one of those social networking sites. And I made a board of stuff from my cubicle. I should point out that I don't actually have my own office (and I probably won't for a VERY long time). So check out my Pinterest page if you have a spare moment. It's AWESOME!!!

Here's another MYSTERY TRACK!!!


My favourite monkey

Simon Green A.K.A Bonobo

Last night, I had the amazing privilege of watching Bonobo perform live at Capitol in Perth. He also brought Andreya Triana with him. She featured on a few tracks from Bonobo's latest album "Black Sands". I managed to squeeze myself into the mosh pit, right up the front. I was seriously less than 3m away from Bonobo and Adreya Triana! Luckily no one stepped on my (still) broken foot, even though I went without crutches. The concert was just brilliant and I had an AWESOME time.

I also got some really good photos with my iPhone. It's a shame I didn't have a proper camera though. Ah, why didn't I become a fancy photographer instead... Anyway afterwards, I asked one of the stage crew guys for a copy of the set list! And he gave me one! =D

Mike Lesirge who played sax, clarinet and flute!
Andreya Triana. I know it's blurry but I like the colours.
Simon Green rockin out! He's actually quite HOT in person!
