Thing #7 - Computer disk

I have a computer disk with 'songs # 2' written on it in pencil, and crossed out in red pen. In the same red pen it says 'THE RING' on it in ominous capital letters. Initially, I must admit I was a little disappointed. Ungrateful little sod that I am. Computer disks remind of me of school and coursework, and I don't have a computer at home to play them on, so I had to wait until the following morning to find out what it was. It turns out that the disk had a file on it called 'Ringu.gif' 529KB) which, when opened, turned out to be a rather disturbing, distorted version of a band I know called Sunnyvale. It's a little animated gif, actually, and as well as the picture of the band with weird faces, it shows a little girl in a white dress with long black hair, with her head hanging down, and then some kind of eyeball and screaming mouth. Most disturbing. Not what you need for a summer's morning at all.
