Ok, so I normally do all my blog posts form my iPhone. Why? Good question. I kinda like the idea that blogging as mainly about sharing the things you're doing and living day to day and the idea of being able to blog from where you are wraps up that whole deal for me. If you can't blog about it, then you can Tweet the snippets and share a few pics via Instagram, which is also awesome.

I usually use an app called Blog Booster which I bought and has been pretty great until my recent fall out with it.

For those that don't know, Jodrell Bank is a huge ass telescope in Cheshire, England, that transmits and records sound in space and records the sounds made by planets and all sorts of amazing space stuff. Some clever people decided to stage a gig there and transmit the night into space. Cool eh? The stage itself was right next to the 3200 tonne telescope pretty much as close to it as you could get.

Now, as the might went on a few people played, Ok Go, British Sea Power to name a couple but the headliners were The Flaming Lips who we'd never seen live and heard go…
