Hi all!

Hey all my loyal reader(s).

Sorry for the lack of updating (even on things like The Friday Music Video). I've been generally fairly busy (initially with the Lord of the Rings Online beta and now with Div III work). I'm in a particularly hectic week right now, and this will likely be the last you hear from me for a bit. But, I'll try and get a few posts up next week. Fear not though. I have not forgotten you, loyal reader(s).

Short Skirt, Long Jacket

Sorry for no updates about anything this week. Ehn't gonna be anything from me for the next couple days 'cept youtube posts. Sorry. Anyways, here's a really awesome video montage of Scully from X-Files (to the beat of Cake):

Maybe I'm a total geek, but I think that's pretty cool. Also, it reminds me that Gillian Anderson is pretty hot.

The Friday Music Video

Anyone who doesn't like Willie Nelson & Bob Dylan performing "Pancho & Lefty" together is a fucking hobo. For serious.

Don't drop the soap, don't smoke no dope.
Out.

Chumbawamba

Their album A Singsong and a Scrap is fucking brilliant. Buy it. Now.

Beatles Boots

Okay... another post about bootlegs. Seriously though... this one is "axesome!!!!111one1!!1"

Have you ever been like... "I needs me some Beatles bootlegs" and then you're like "Oh no, I be not having any Beatles bootlegs." Well, fear not, your days of panic and misery are over.

1) Lossless Beatles - Just what it sounds like. Beatles bootlegs in .flac and other lossless formats. For audiophile nuts. Good stuff.

2) Eternos Beatles - Beatles (and related) boots, but in hideous, lossy mp3 (which is usually my choice. What can I say, I'm a heathen). Also good stuff.

3) Beatles Remixers Group - For the folks that want something a little different. Remixes and mash-ups (and such) of Beatles songs. Good stuff and a little different.

See? Wasn't that helpful?

The Good, The Bad & The Queen Live Download

Hey all.

I just wanted to give anyone who reads this a chance to download The Good, The Bad & The Queen's live set that was performed 0n Feb. 7, 2007 and broadcast over the German radio station Einslive at the same time. I'm bring this up because I managed to record the set and now would like to share it in all its timeless mp3 glory. I'm sort of proud of this because I've been able to actually distribute it around different sites to other fans of the band, so I figured I should post it up on my blog as well. If you haven't taken the time to listen to much of the band, this is a pretty damned good introduction. the sound quality is excellent and the performance is top notch. I think this band's material is best listened to live as opposed to their studio work (which is still strong, I think). Anyways, here's the download link:

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=4I7IGNJH
or
http://www.yousendit.com/download/K0JSM25PUzd6NE41VEE9PQ

It downloads as a zip file which is 131mb and decompresses as a single mp3 encoded @ 320kbps. The whole gig (including lead-in and out from the radio station in German!) is there, just not hacked up by individual song. I highly recommend this band. In the words of Ferris Bueller, they are "choice."

UPDATE: The previous download link seems to have failed, so I have re-uploaded on both Megaupload and yousendit. The links are now current.

Chuck Norris & The Presidency

Believe it or not, Chuck Norris has thrown his hat into the ring... not of presidential candidates but of that much more illustrious group: people who write about presidential candidates.

In a column for WorldNetDaily, Mr. Norris outlines his belief in the necessity for a president to be a good, god-fearing-type Christian. His selection? Newt Gingrich. Neat. Anyways, the article is truly extraordinary and must be read to be believed. Here's a little taste on how he views our system of government:
For Foster and our Founders, government is a ''divine appointment,'' an ordained institution of God, and ''an important mean of delivering us from the evils of the apostasy; and designed to prepare us for the more encouraging restraints the gospel enjoins.'' As such, it too has Jesus Christ, not some nebulous and neutered god, as its head.

Striking, no?

Now, I'm not one to put down the beliefs of others (actually, if I think they're dumb, I am. But whatever)... but it seems that Chuck is wrong about this. I'm not one of those assholes who feels that celebrities shouldn't get to voice their opinions on current events... but I think Chuck is a better roundhouse kicker than he is a presidential commentator.

Fore more info and analysis, Carpetbagger has the low-down.

The Friday Music Video

Let's kick it out way back to 1958 this Friday. Feeling a little country, I give you Johnny Cash performing "Big River " on the tee-vee:

Long live Johnny Cash.
