Samuel’s Musician Of The Week: Madonna Some people are just beyond belief

True, but let’s see if we can clear the coffee debt

Ah, the things one finds on the internet. I don’t really even remember what prompted my session of googling myself other than the fact that I was going to go to sleep and got sidetracked. Anyway, after skimming a dozen or so pages of results which were largely filled with automated MP3 indexing websites which have latched on to one or more of my MP3 files, and finding that I was wished a happy birthday the other day on a decent number of McPherson Media (publisher of the Deniliquin Pastoral Times and a heap of other local papers) newspaper websites, I stumbled upon Google’s “Realtime Search” which seems to scour Twitter and other social media services. It produced this interesting result:

Still owed coffee

The Twitter account which published that either no longer exists or has changed name since then (I’d suggest the former seeing as a search of Twitter for my name doesn’t yield this result), however I’m pretty sure that I know who wrote that.

So, to that person, yes, you do, but that’s partially my fault for not informing you on the one occasion that I was in your town (assuming that you’re still in that town), although I wouldn’t have had time on that occasion anyway as I was there on business.

If you still want to meet for coffee, I’ll be in your town on the 20th and 21st of this month, albeit with a limited amount of free time. If this interests you, email me.

Regardless, it’s nice to see that you’re still around. I hope things are going well for you. And don’t worry, it’s not that much of a shift to be understanding me more, because my perspective has changed a bit over time as well.

If the rest of you are still reading at this point, take this as a lesson in data retention on the internet. Stuff sticks around long after you think you’ve removed it.
