Walking With a Ghost

Walking With a Ghost is a mostly live album (EP) by the White Stripes. The title song "Walking With a Ghost" is a nice cover of Tegan and Sara. The musical style is reminiscent of their album "Get Behind me Satan" which was released just previously. It's somewhere between "Blue Orchid" and "Icky Thump". Having not heard the original song I would have thought it was the natural evolution of their style and sound, but listen to Tegan and Sara's ver…

MJ Had A Patent

Michael Jackson died yesterday prompting a DDOS attack on the worlds news organizations and Google. Whatever became of him doesn't change the fact he knew what he was doing when it came to putting on a performance and singing a song. I'm going to share one my favorite facts about him, he had a patent for shoes.

It's fascinating to watch these videos, but boy is he ever weir…

Hitachi Hard-Drive Project

I found this piece of music a little while back. You can click the little play button to play it now.
Noriko Version

It was made for a Gizmondo competition by "Noriko" - Composed with sounds of a failing Hitachi hard-disk. I lost his link, but you can probably google for it. It's really quite beautiful and peaceful. Though once I was diagnosing a laptop and this song came on and freaked me out. You never want want to hear these sounds coming from…

House is actually a Massive Attack Song

I normally don't like using media that's not on my own server because it can disappear and two weeks from now nobody will know what I'm talking about.


The TV show house usesTear Drop by Massive Attackas it's theme song.

It also seems to have been heavily inspired by the music video for it's title credits.

By the way I encourage you to listen to moreMassive Attack.

Louis XIV

This is my weekly top artists at Not at the time of this writing, but as of right now.

Removed is a music tracking service that lets you see what you've listened to and recommended what's good. Part of their terms of service is that all your data is yours, free to delete and copy and access at all times. (Google has a similar outlook but I still haven't seen ways of getting all your data out..) Now because that ticker is bound to…

Math and Music

Many mathematicians consider David Bowie's "TVC15" to be the most mathematically beautiful piece of music ever performed. "Take Five" by the Dave Brubeck Quartet is also considered mathematically flawless. -Gullible.Info

Anyone ever listen to any of those?


They're opening up a commerce bank down the block.

I'm happy about the commerce bank being built down the block. The private parking lot was nice and all, and I did enjoy looking at the converted pig box that used to serve as a delivery.. vehicle, but I think the bank will be a lot more useful. I'll be able to walk down the block to count my change for free. (oh and do banking and things)

I was looking for a link on the penny arcades but I found nothing that just showed what it was (it counts the…

From A perfect circle to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs

From A perfect circle to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Lots of links to lots of music videos and lots of popups.

Get them while they're hot.

Warning Link has lots of popups. Only Internet explorer seems to get them though. Firefox and Safari don't seem to have any problems. Toni called me up earlier telling me a story about how a lot of prono popups popped up when a professor walked in because she had clicked on the link.

Because of that I decided to deact…

Bulletproof Cupid

(Bulletproof Cupid by Placebo is quite a nice instrumental song. Makes a nice opening track to their album Sleeping With Ghosts. Which has a really. striking album cover.)

Bulletproof Networks.
I've been reading up on vpns. Secure networks over insecure networks. Instead of paying lots of money for a secure line to your office you can use a cheep internet connection that is hardly secure. But over this insecure connection you can start another co…

The Globe and Personal Radio Stations

Let me get this out of the way. The Third Globe

Forgive my snippy captions, My heart just isn't in it today. Also if you look at the England gallery you might notice this comes before Westminster and Trafalgar Square, I missed this one, and the next one too. I'm trying to keep some semblance of chronological order.

So I found this site called digg. It's neat, the community submits links and rates them, not a bunch of editors. So the crap you find…

If you happen to live in russia then its perfectly legal for you to download music by the megabyte from All OF MP3. And now they finally take paypal again.


PS And because I think if I don't do this now I never will. Here's my next England Gallery, my day at Stonehenge.

Dam bugs and a good song

So I was almost asleep having convinced myself that ... heh, I don't even remember anymore. Anyway, I was sleeping almost and then "ZZZZZZeeeeeppp" the doppler of a bug flying around my ear. I don't even know if I killed it. Fucking bugs.

Anyway, I finally found this song that's been running through my head.
