Pops 16: Indestructible by Robyn

Sometimes I listen the same song until it gets all worn out. It can be something I liked the first moment I heard it, or a tune I didn't think I'd like. It may be something I have liked before and found again or something I used to detest with all my heart. There's really no way to know which song is the next one I'...

The monotonic web

If it's on web it's free. Many people seem to think that anything they find on web is free for them to use. There's lots of legally free stuff out there, but most of all there are lots of things you can use to get yourself into all sorts of trouble.

So, did you actually read it?

Once again it happened: Someone read my last blog post and got upset about it. Well, read and read.

Some of them I've started to read or flipped through the first pages in the library. When I was younger I read a whole bunch of Jane...
