AFTERMATH: Haunted ipod
The first 22 chapters of this blog, from Jan to April 2013, are the text of my ebook, 'How To Become A Crack Addict'. From then on, it's the daily musings of yours sometimes truly, Benjamin of Turnham Green, also known as Benjamin Lo-Fi, well on youtube anyway...and here is today's musing...
In the old days, when ghosts were fairly recent, they just appeared, maybe translucent or with their feet underground, but they made a go of it, they appeared.
Since around the 70s, or at least that's when we say we started noticing, they couldn't be bothered to actually manifest, so just left us some whispering on the telly, some sepulchral murmur under the white noise, which you don't get much these days.
So now they're having to go digital, appear in pixels and menus, as cryptograms. But don't worry, they're still there. We're as haunted as we ever were.
