in a desperate attempt to bolster his self respect, on 21st December 2005, Christopher Alcxxk, "journalist", ""music"ian" and grumpy twunt, started a thread that he will bump with discussions of the music he listens to on his long trip into work every morning, perhaps with musings on the nature of portable music, the coincidences of context and content and other such bumph.
Of course, anyone else on the Drowned In Sound message board was invited to share their thoughts, both on their own experiences and Christopher's proclamations.
It was precisely 2 lines into writing that that he realised that he's only in his job for another 4 days, and that 3 of those are in January.
It was at precisely this point that he decided to post this preamble as soon as possible, to avoid being fired that little bit earlier. Sordid details following.
