Music in 2001 sucked. Sorry sucks - present tense. Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys. It's all frikkin' Divas right now! I thought it was all garage band back here; you know? Nirvana and stuff. But I realise now that was, like, earlier...mid-90s. So, the FM radio stations, digital radio online, it's all warbling R&B crap. Mind you, the weird bit is...well, actually, the cool thing is, there's no X Factor, no Pop Idol yet. No Simon Cowell. Yayyyy!!!
How cool is that?!!None of that phoney rubbish has happened yet.
I'm almost tempted to step out of the archway and into time and join the auditions the first time round and tell Simon Cowell how totally crap his contribution to the music biz will be over the next decade. That'd be fun. Actually, me and the others pretending to be a band. Mind you, I don't want to imagine Bob trying to do a N-Sync Boyz routine.
Ugghh. I've got that image in my mind now. Him and Liam with baseball caps perched on their heads, bein' all wicked an' street.

Sorry about the typing. I had too much beer this evening. Feeling a little worse for wear and I can't focus too good on these monitors right now.
Sal liked the third band we saw. Said they reminded her a bit of one of the bangra-thrash bands she liked in 2029. Weird. I keep forgeting she's from the future.
I'm feeling ill. We had some curry on the way back home and I thinlk I might jus be ready to puke it all bak up.
Not good. I feel totslly crap. - Madsdty

You know I was a kid the year he got elected. Lemmesee...I was eight. I figured all that stuff in the papers about him being a dumb-ass rich fratboy was just the 'others', you know, the Democrats bitching and whining coz they lost the election. Looking at this stuff, I guess they were right all along. He's a total doofus.
Mind you, I'll have to post Donald Rumsfeld's fart gag, sometime. It is pretty funny.
*sigh* Liam's just looked over my shoulder and asked what a 'fratboy' is. God, he's so-o-o-o nineteenth century.

You know what the weirdest thing about being in 2001? It’s the internet. No Facebook, no Youtube, no Twitter and every webpage looks totally retarded. It’s the little things like the fact that there’s nothing moving on screen – every graphic is totally static, no animated pop-ups, or banners. I used to find those things distracting. Now I sort of miss them. Our computer system here has got a broadband feed. But this is old broadband. You know, snail-speed broadband, so it’s probably for the best that I’m surfing low-graphics pages.
Want to here something cool? I’ve even got access to some very sensitive government sites – the White House for example! I can actually view the President’s email inbox/sent mail! You wouldn’t beliecve the sort of dumbass ‘funnies’ Prez Bush and his cronies send each other. Jeeez. He’s sent about two dozen emails this morning already. And I thought the guy had a fricken country to run or something.
Oh, and I’m bloated. We over-ordered on the chinese again. I always do that. x
I’ve sort of hacked the computer in the archway. It’s simple really – I’m here in 2001 posting blog entries to a server that I know is still around in 2010. Then rerouting those posts to this website. Seems to work.
So, if anyone’s out there, this is me, Maddy. Madelaine Carter. And Mom, Dad, if you’re seeing this…I know it won’t make sense, you’re gonna think this is someone messing around with your mind. But you know, it’s okay. I’m alive, I didn’t die on that plane. Actually, they won’t ever see this. They don’t do computers. They can barely send emails.
So, I guess this is just me talking to myself. Something to do whilst I’m waiting for Sal and Liam to come back with our chinese takeaway.More later. X
