Ah, my first use of a classic internet meme. I'm so down with the cool kids. Right, pay attention. Run your eyes over
my body this website and you'll notice a blue blob that, as Prince Charles once said of modern British architecture's effect on London, is like a monstrous carbuncle on the face of a much loved and elegant friend. It's for all you trendies out there, swanning around with your iPhones and Nokias and cranial-audio uplinks. In other words, Catching The Waves is now formatted for web-enabled mobile phones.

Like any other new technological wheeze at CTW, the blob is there on sufferance; if it doesn't work or if I don't like it – it'll disappear.
Inevitably, there will be some teething problems. I'm not sure if my recommended songs will be playable for now, and Jamendo's media player doesn't want to appear at the moment. However, the links to recommended albums will still be at the end of each article and will still work.
So here's a rare request (apart from my pleadings for you to shower the musicians with “thank you” emails and maybe even a little cash) for user comments/emails: please let me know if it works or if it doesn't. You may laugh at the new cack-handed logo as long as you tell your trendy friends with trendy phones about CTW – I need to know if the service is compatible with the major phone brands.
Yes, that last plea was a blatant attempt to court popularity. Sue me. My next post but one will feature someone who has helped me tremendously with "CTW Mobile", as I like to call it in my more pretentious moments. Next up is - and I know you'll find this hard to believe - an album review. I like to ring the changes. ;)
