For you I would even RTFM

I wanted you for so long...
It seems like forever now
And it's almost unreal
To have you beside me
Feeling your smooth body 
Underneath my fingers
Admiring your elegance and complexity.
Yet I know that you will never 
Ask if I am really sure 
What I want from you.

me2everyone

I am probably not the only one who got the invitation to join the community me2everyone.com. Normally I would ignore this kinda things but this one was slightly different. It was supposed to be owned by its members, meaning you becoming a shareholder if you sign up.

So I did the same thing as many others and used the "what have I got to loose" criteria. After all it only takes a few minutes and the thing could get real big one day and be worth millions. Like Google, right? Wrong.

Before I could start spamming inviting my friends I forgot my password. Yeah, it happens when you're not writing things down. I tried the "forgotten password" link and got email saying "Your password is:" but not really giving me one. There were also some other very interesting basic things missing in the content (e.g. blank space instead of my username and asking me to reply to noreply@me2everyone.com). Every time I tried it.

Right. So they didn't test their SGE. I sent them e-mail through their contact e-form, even though it has some usability issues and was apparently not tested on different OS. They promise to get back at you in 24 hours. It has been almost a week now. Well, I guess we should have synchronized our watches first. My bad.

So as much as I wish for everyone to get a lot of money out of this and laugh at my skepticism while they're sipping margaritas on their private beach in Tijuana, I can't help wondering. I am not particularly good at math but how much can you possibly earn out of a website that was launched and advertised without sorting out basic development and usability issues?

V-day

And it's the pink day again, a day to celebrate sweet things in life and avoid getting diabetes. Last year I suggested three perfect Valentine songs for you, this year I'm feeling more generous.

The right music can create the right atmosphere for you and your loved one/s. And the right atmosphere can make this Valentine's day just about the most interesting you ever had.

That is why I am giving away a perfect CD for this romantic occasion (photo of the band with signatures included): Bullet for my Valentine; Rule Brittania. All you have to do is send me an email with your address.

Feeling lucky?

Better Than Heaven

There are some things that simply nothing can spoil for you and there are some bands that you want to see no matter what. And yesterday's Bloc party concert was definitely one of those situations. No wonder it was sold out.

Chaotic crowd, lack of air, sweaty strangers pressing against you, people jumping and dancing pushing around. Disturbing? I couldn't care less. We were all united by one wish - to see them live. And we were not disappointed.

The concert was spectacular and far beyond anything I imagined. Banquet, Like eating glass, Modern love, Song for Clay, Hunting for witches, One month off, Ares, Mercury and many more.

Soooo much energy, so much sunshine and such an excellent music! It was definitely one of my top 3 concerts ever. Completely surreal and I want to see them again.

And if you feel bad about wanting to go but not going, you shouldn't. I lied. You really should. I swear I felt love.
