Diane Birch is channelling Sandi Thom!

I just heard Diane Birch on Later with Jools Holland.

She just sounds SO like Sandi Thom! Now let me say that that's no bad thing. I love Sandi's music and lyrics. But now I've got to buy another artist, dammit!

Shouty marketing

I really can't stand shouty marketing material. I unsubscribed from one online magazine when I got an email that took that to the ludicrous limit.

Here's what I wrote to them:

Dear Mike and Webmaster,

SORRY, but I REALLY can't STAND emails that insist on SHOUTING RANDOM words. It's a VERY ANNOYING way of writing, and DOESN'T SPEAK WELL of the journalism STANDARDS of the magazine it REPRESENTS.

Most PEOPLE wouldn't let YOU KNOW why they UNSUBSCRIBED, but I THOUGHT I'd give you that COURTESY.

All the best,
