So I've switched off my phone until 8 pm tonight.

This is the first time I've done this in years. My phone is always near me, or I am on it. I am mostly on it. I use it for everything. My apps track things for me, I text friends all day, I get notified with new emails, new bank transactions, my podcasts are on there, my music, my calendar, my internet browsing, my clock.

Everything is on my phone. So I've switched it off. The habit is still so strong. I wanted to see whether a bank transaction went through and reached for my phone.

I wanted to check the time and then I realised my phone was off and my thought was honestly "poo, I won't know the time now"....! Then a minute or so passed and I thought to check my laptop time.

The addiction is real. I didn't realise it was this bad.

Right now I feel more present. I'm not distracting myself. I am thinking about things more.

And I feel like my thoughts are clearer too.

This is very strange for me.

So strange!

In other news I was looking up stuff of Giorgio Moroder to download and there's a version of Metropolis in which he's done the music to it! When I saw that I was like whhhaaattt the drat.

So it's busy downloading now and I can't wait to watch it.

I'm getting into Prince so bad. The guy's such a genius. I used to just think he was a sort of gender bending person who did love songs (based on his mainstream hits). Holy poo. So much more. But I'm not surprised it took me this long to get into him. I think I would have dismissed him if I were any younger.

And Batdance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulO...

Prince and Giorgio Moroder are the sh*t.

I mean, basically with Prince, you have Controversy to Lovesexy, which are all hands down superb albums, and then some random OK stuff with a bit of awesome mixed in. But 8 albums of amazing, incredible things, for sure.

OoooooO, I'm envious that you get to explore this stuff.

Have you seen this metropolis version?

Also yeah I am having the most amazing time discovering this stuff. It's such a joy!

Anyone says that by definition has no appreciation for good music, so it's cool

I saw Prince live in 2011.

Never again though,

OMG. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction and Superbowl half time vids are a must.

Also, he was the nuts live. I saw him like 4 times or so.

Ooooh thanks I'll definitely check those out.

Yeah he looks like a king live. I'm quite remiss I missed him.

I've got "my name is prince" is my head

My name is Prince! And I am funky! When it comes to funk! I am the one and only!

The story behind that song too is so great. What a legend.
