obey your supervisor...
|Another crazy day of business, but another selection of niggling jobs completed - I'm trying desperately to leave the office a little after six, so I can be home at a sociable hour, but it's not gone terribly well so far this week. Still, it's all good experience and I think people are of the opinion that I'm not a complete dead loss as a supervisor (albeit a temporary one). I have clearly earned their respect so far, though, as the picture to the right testifies; I was given the novelty glasses, picked up from Steve Wright's studio, I believe, on my first day and it was suggested that they represent the standard dress code for the duty supervisor.|
Some might say, though, that I'm not too overloaded, as I still took an opportunity to see Keane in the 6music hub, along with nearly fifty others; I was among the last to arrive, so the vantage position wasn't as great as previously, and any mini-photos of the band were little more than silhouettes against the windows. However, I'll never allow a musical moment to pass without some way to recall the moment (OK, so I could have recorded it off-air, but I suppose it's not quite like being there) so I had my iPAQ handy for a brief period of recollection - here's "This is the Last Time" (their next single) (772kB MP3).
I didn't need to leave my desk to hear the recently premiered Band Aid 20 song, though. It started fairly promisingly, but by the end (having listened past the possibly unnecessary Dizzee Rascal bit) it ends up sounding like a junior school music lesson.

Shouldn't that be ~you're~ supervisor? ;)
