Closing the Steve blog

Just because Steve's blog is currently closed does not mean that it will remain so, does it? Well you know what to do, there's always a home for you here at chriswasanon and if nmtb is reading this, just create a new account.

call yourself nmtbcal and for a password, bollocks!

Seriously nevah, have a good time in the smoke.

Chris was probably going to change the subject quite soon.

Ma space, ye space ay body's space!
My space, your space, everybody's space!

Why am I writing about myspace? Because I have expanded
my social contacting there and to some extent taken my discussion
from the Jonesy's blog. It is partly why I set this blog up, so you
could add your own thoughts here and when Tom posted his
myspace link quite a few of you signed up. I was hoping to chat to
Steve and I imagine many of you were too

If you are a jukebox blogger and you found that myspace
wasn't for you...These are the results of my research:

  1. . A marketing thing driven by a free market a riot of graphics.
  2. . One of the top social networking sites to be found on the Internet.
  3. . A good research tool, a never ending wave of distraction and advertising,

Animated gifs,
sound files,
kudos scoring,
instant messenging. AIM I think.
blogging and lots more.

Social networking, "making friends."
You'll get a message saying "so and and so ....want's to be your friend!"

"approve, deny, block, delete, retry, abort, give-up.". know...the drill - its not quite like MS. DOS though.

You'll get a message saying,
"New Comments!"

And you'll find that someone has written

"Thanks for the add" and
they have added a huge picture...
or not...sometimes it really is only a comment."

Its a wonderful place to find out about; music
and bands, and entertainment a place of artistic
expression meet new people, find those that
you have something in common with.
Whatever those tenous links of connection
may be. It may well be ideal for dating
I can't comment. It seems to be geared
towards that quite strongly.

You can search your email addresses for contacts and
add them to your friends list. This is very handy.
There are some good blogs on there but you must look.
hard and the search is not that great.
If I was being cynical and a party pooper....
I would say that it isn't entirely "myspace"
for my space at home does not involve a constant
scrolling of adverts.

This piece reminds me of the "Hitch hikers guide to the Galaxy."
No not the dreadful film, I mean the books, the radio series
the lp. the tv series anything but THAT film...
Myspace IS the Restaurant at the end of the Universe.

And that in a protracted snap is myspace.

Chris was not Marvin a manically depressed robot.

Comment junky hurtin' bad

Welcome to my free part of the blogosphere.

A few links. Myspace - a Californian thing probly. News Corp Rupert Murdoch has acquired it..

Want more on myspace go:marketing

Technorati - if you are new to blogging, search them!

This blog is for Indie 103.1 Jonesy's jukebox bloggers but if you like music


Did I mention comment?

I'm using 2 web browsers, Internet explorer 5 for Win 98 and firefox.

If you are using IE5, this page is not displaying properly and exploder
5 users will find my other links at the bottom of the page

You could always grab a copy of firefox

My wish list: ............three square meals a day.

To be able to log back into the indie page, I can't seem to load it
at all.

Confused, answers on a postcard, thanks.


Jukebox jerk

I know, I know, This little imp on the box is getting everyone down, I don't know why the station can't track his IP. address. He seems to have got into a fish thing. The blog will no doubt have to be cleaned up which will mean that it will be offline again - when this happens come here and play if you want. I hate to say it but the blog is going to need passwords and logins so that this kind of crap can't happen..

Jonesy's jukebox - turn up your radio! - edited version

Where the hell was I? Ah, a strange thing happened on the Jonesy's juke box blog last night....

That strange thing is happening fairly regularly. I get all emotional here - time for some judicious editing...well you have had the chance to view it. Some git thinks its fun to post under the names of the regulars and causes confuuuuuusion. Troll is not the word for that little buglurk!. Lately he has become fish obsessed. I'm working in a vacuum here. I can't get a stream from Indie but I can read. The blog is precarious! People slagging off the Steve and punks typing, "Steve ya fat cunt" Reminds me of massed British football - no not American...honestly keep up - chanting of, "you fat bastid" at Finsbury Park for the Filthy Lucre tour in 1996.

The anons who post... they accuse us of being repetitive - but we are gathered, in aural Wilshire we are gathered because we likes good music. Jonesy is not a feedback man. He threatened to shut the blog and there were cries of "oh please no," don't shut the We are family on the blog, so much silliness, banter, good humour, information. Some of us beg for steerage from the Cap'n but he is too content listening to the music to be concerned about us greatly - which is ok@the end of the day. Not an email address - wake up at the back there!

Aside - I was having doubts about Myspace when I posted before this edit but now yes, its a mellow type situation but very hard to meet interesting people, like tramps, genuine mountain men and itinerant story tellers.

Myspace is well what is myspace?

So if anybody see's this, my shouts and my big ups are to:

Never mind the Bollocks.
Pie 'n' peas.
Tricky Dickie
NYC Gail

and to Steve Jones!

Answers on a post.

Chris was Anon.

In which I tune my Radio to KSAN, Radio 1 and Indie 103.1.

If you do not know and for some obscure reason you may not, Steve Jones is/was the Sex Pistols guitar hero. I know - cos Desmond Morris took photographs of Cutie Jones' black amp with the words: "Sex Pistols Guitar hero," painted on. Jonesy moved to Californiayyyy some 25 years ago I hazard and has been since February of 2004 on the radio. Thanks Stuart for the info. Not to say he hasn't done other things, The Professionals, Neurotic outsiders and other stuff to numerous to mention. Steve Jones is a much-respected guitarist.

Well the Internet being what it is now, there is no need to be in the California area, you can listen live to the radio

"He has been carving a name out for himself, as a US radio jock."

Quote from Colour Supplement of the Herald, a local Scottish newspaper, on a one time tad-anonymous scourge of England. Apparently it was all about having bog brush hair "spiky" and Jones could not coiffure his locks - unlike John and Sid - with his head up-side down in the oven Vish. Steve now happily spins the decks on the radio at Indie 103.1 on his own show. Indie is a great little US. independent radio station. Criticism: It does suffer badly from over-advertising, we Brits are spoiled I think. Jonesy refers to this advertising in his inimicable way as, "the Duke."

"We're gonna visit the Duke now." Duke of Kent = Rent.

Its a long way from:

"Big tits across America,."

Steve and Paul get busy at KSAN.

I really hate to see my favourite radio station just taken down
with all this crap you're throwing out
over the air."

An irate caller said this when Steve and Paul guested on the KSAN Jive 95 radio station in 1978 for a notorious phone-in. (real-player required). KSAN the laid back station on the top of your dial in San Francisco. You will hear pieces of an interview with John and Sid there too. Some of these interviews appeared on the record:

Some Product, Carri on Sex Pistols.

The Californians and now the Internet have taken Steve well and truly to their and its heart/s and no wonder, there is nothing else to compare. He truly is the man who can and our favourite British DJ. John Peel is smiling down on him from where he surely is in the great Suffolk small-holding in the sky. We remember fondly John Peel for promoting unsigned bands,his longevity in the business, his free-spirit.

We remember fondly his love for The Fall, his unique place at Radio 1

We of a certain generation.

But "Peelie" didn't strum his acoustic or make up (on the spot) surreal and insanely silly lyrics to well loved tunes and John didn't whistle either, or have his engineer, Shovel...and Mr. Shovel deserves a blog spot of his own...

Other differences? Peelie, did not drop his aitches...John Peel could,

never be asked like that treacherous anon

Anon says:
"Why can't you speak properly?"

Where else but on the blog to end all blogs, the madness and the love that is Jonesy's Blog.

Strange what some people will get upset about nowadays.

God save Steve Jones.
