(sorry I am still brooding on the lost ipod. I do hope Dr Rob finds it for me).
On my partner's ipod shuffle, nicely lent, are:
Latin American Stuff
Not my thing at all.
I realise how much of our lives consist of customizing our identity spaces, like blogs and clothes and ipods, and making them somewhat our own.
I have also just finished reading this book Stuart a Life Backwards - it is very very good and made me laugh it is also very sad, but there is a brilliant bit when the author is camping out, and pretending to be a homeless person, (just for 3 days) and he says that he begins to customize his little bit of pavement and make it his own.
He also writes about prison, and how that is one of the things that prison tries to take away.
But then Anita Wilson reminds us that prisoners customize things too.
I have long wanted to do a research project on how we customize our desktops and what we do with them.
But I also want to do a research project on the Argos catalogue and tracking its role in homes.
Tattoos are ofcourse the most amazing way of customizing.
I like this one.
Go and see the huge number of tattoos on Flickr here.
