The Box

I put the iPod on random today... to choose from the 4,200+ songs on it. "The Box" by Orbital came up and unlocked a gigantic flood of memories and feelings. You see, when MTV Amp came out, a CD that had that song, someone put out this kick ass Windows desktop theme, with sounds, based on that CD.

That was about 1997 or 1998, when we moved into our bigger apartment and I was fairly into my job with the city/schools doing cable TV stuff. We had shitty (or no) furniture, and I had this awesome "cockpit" desk (occupied by a 14" NEC monitor, which I still have).

Wow... I could write pages just by listening to that song.

I feel inferior with my 518 songs.

I used to have the Mtv Amp theme song by Deepsky on vinyl.. I wish I knew what happened to it.
