My ipod

Yes, it happened.... I have been won over by itunes. After getting my ipod earlier this year I'm now hooked. The thing i like the most about it is the way it keeps statistical information on the amount of plays each track has.

As I've not been that well recently I decided one morning to export all the info onto a spreadsheet and play with all the info [I know! How geeky!] Now I have seemed to have a definitive list on my favourite musical artists based on the amount of plays each of them have received. The top ten is below:

1 Kylie Minogue
2 Madonna
3 Michael Jackson
4 Glee Cast
5 Beatles
6 Bananarama
7 Dusty Springfield
9 McFly
10 Meat Loaf

Now the people who know me will not be surprised by that list at all, but I was surprised how Glee was so high on the list. Then I realised that since the beginning of last year they had released around 160 different tracks! I think I'll try this again in a few months to see if any of these ten change.

Welcome back to!

It's been a couple of years in the making, but is properly back! For those who remember the original site, it was an open forum for people to discuss anything and everything.

Things haven't changed much in that respect, but with the growing popularity of social networking sites, there really wasn't much of a reason to go to an open forum so this time around the site will be much more blogging based.

For those who don't know me or are new to the site I'm not no sure how I would introduce myself on here, all I can say is when you read my blogs you should get an idea about the type of person I am

So here I am, I hope you enjoy what I say but at the same time I hope people challenge what I say too. Everybody talks rubbish from time to time....My twitter ID is bluejovanka but friends call me Matthew. If you've worked out what my user id means, you've probably guessed that I'm a huge Doctor Who fan! Those of you who have seem my tweets though probably didn’t need to work out my username to guess....

The reason I have started blogging is because sometimes I need to rant or rave about something and a lot of the time 140 characters isn't enough to fully express my opinion (trust me when I say I have lots of those!!!)

But this is also a site you too, feel free to use the blogging facility to talk about anything and everything you wish, it doesn't even have to be Manchester based :)
