My Life (in multimedia)

Hello. Since I have no words for you at the present time, I'm instead going to present a view of my life through the media of sound and imagery. Sadly for you, I'm a crap photographer and have pisspoor taste in music. Hah.

First of all, here's a fun meme that I found on Facebook and will copy:

How to make the soundtrack to your life…

1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle/random
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that's playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
6. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool...

So much for that. Here are the photos.

My house in Aachen. My flat is the middle balcony on the first floor.

A view of Aachen from the local high point. Although it's more a view of a lorry going along the motorway. Some day I'll figure out how my zoom works.

View the other way, across the fields towards the Venn.

View across the road from in front of my house. Again, need to figure out how to make the zoom work.

Again, view from the high point, this time towards my house across the old quarry that's been made into a sort of park. Finally, something completely different, taken at home on Twelfth Night 2007:

Next year we'll be getting a non-drop one.

We spilled so many on the road as we were carrying it round from the front door to the back yard that my dad felt compelled to get a broom and sweep them all up!
