Can you be a minimalist hoarder?


I hope you can because I want to be one. I have to say I’m not driven to have a lot of stuff or live in a big house most of the time I find it hard to spend money and will spend time trying to find an alternative. In the past year or so I have found myself driven to reduce the amount of stuff I do have. A new laptop meant I could remove the gargantuan cathode ray tube monitor from my desk. I also took the opportunity to remove the unwatched unloved TV from the same desk the next obvious target was the temple to outdated formats which was my stereo With it caste deck cd player and AM/FM radio it clear that this device fines itself like so many other usurped by the computer. My phone is now my full time alarm clock. 
But If you read ianbyfordart.blogspot you know I am endlessly piking stuff up in the street. I just can’t let something I see as an interesting object go to west. Well it’s about time I tried to bring these two conflicting urges in to harmony. 

But how?...

fabled manifesto: manifesto

it seams clear to me that politicians don't have a clue and so I'm starting the fabled manifesto with my ideas on how to get the country if not the world running better and I'm starting my manifesto with a new law about manifestos

when a political party rights it's manifesto it should set a target for each department (along with how the target is to be measured) to be achieved by 6 months before the end of there term and if they fail to achieve a target the party gets a fine to be added to the budget of the department they let down

this should make manifestos more realistic and clearer to the voting public.

z is for fabled zeitgeist

z is for zeitgeist.  i think the word zeitgeist sometimes get misused as meaning fashionable or popular where zeitgeist means "the spirit of the times" fashion is something people try to keep up with but it is more important to stay open to the zeitgeist rather than mindlessly following fashion.

i know that today post was a bit short and a bit philosophical but this is what happen if i try to wright about something  beginning with z

now go by a fabled mug i guaranty there not fashionable

x is for fabled x-factor

x is for x-factor well it had to be really because i don't have much to say about x-rays.

i don't think i will surprise you when a say i don't like this show or any of this generation of "talent" show that have spawned from Popstars
the first reason i don't like these shows is the lack of song writing I'm assuming that even if a singer song writer did turn up for the x-factor auditions they wood still be made to regurgitate the songs of others instead of  showing off  the full rang of there talent
at this point i feel the need to bring up MobileAct unsigned/Orange unsignedAct which did have real bands on who wrote songs and played instruments (including some friends of my brother hence why i watched the first series) but the show was a bit shit and if i remember right did evan show the full songs

the second reason i don't like these shows is judges who get paid (probably an obscene amount) to pull faces and make rued comments while unpaid contestants provide most of the shows contents

i could probably come up with more if i watch these shows but i don't so i'll move on to the main i hate x-factor. you can't avoid it ,i don't watch but i still know what happens on it because for some reason it gets reported on the news as well as repotting on every detail of the contestants lives and emergency  news flashes whenever simon cowell farts
