As the clouds move in

Been at project work all day... while listening to internet radio. While my own music playlist would take maybe a month to listen through, I do get tired of my own music... I find constant news chatter is the best company for long-haul projects, unless you need to write prose.

List of company on long-haul projects, any time of day or night
ABC Newsradio, great news & bits from NPR / BBC but the news update every 15 minutes gets annoying...
While ABC Melbourne 774 has a bit more local flair & some great presenters. The graveyard shift guys are funny as...
BUT! When I get sick of my own country's constant cycles of news stories, I move abroad:
BBC World Service (UK)
NPR News (USA)
Radio Canada International (CAN)
Deutsche Welle (GER) who do the afternoon news here on SBS...
Great thing about the English language is it's everywhere. So if you need droning newsvoices with constant, interesting conversation to keep you company, why not try some completely far-away country's English language service news for a change?


Also can't help but notice what with 8 hours of news propping me up but:

If only the wind blew the other way...

GAWD, education. :/ :/ :/ :/ you wake up some days and realise a whole month's just gone.
