I’ve decided to listen to every single track in my music collection — about 3000 items right now.
Now, it is as good as written in stone that I am not going to like every song on the album. Would you keep the tracks you’re never going to listen to for the sake of completeness, or not?
Assume you didn’t buy this on the iTMS, but rather ripped them from CDs just in case you’re factoring in money spent.
The INQ Little Difference 2005 awards list has to be one of the most sarcastic things I’ve read in a while. My favourites include:
Best Literary Work — Fiction: Intel for their 2005 roadmaps
Best Literary Work — Non-Fiction: AMD for their 2005 roadmaps
Apple: Lifetime Achievement in Marketing award for making so many people pay so much for worse audio quality than a 1970s cassette
Blogcritics.org: Why Going to the Movies Sucks So Bad is a nice take on the (sometimes) ordeal of having to go watch a movie…
Its amazing how the usage of email has changed. Once upon a time I could expect most, if not all of the email in my inbox to be of some value to me, something someone had taken time to write up (in plain text, no more) and it had purpose. The subject field still carried meaning with most people, and was filled in with an almost religious effort at meaningfulness. Ah, how I long for those days, when men were men and email was more of a communication vector, and not a public forum for the sharing of pretty pictures and smileys and all that crap.
Nowadays, the only serious email I get comes from clients. Friends no longer send email to say “Hi, how are you?” Actually, come to think of it, some of them do, but its more along the lines of, “Hi, hw r u???”
Its almost not worth my time checking my email anymore. The only folders in my inbox I scan with any effort are the mailing lists, and also an ‘approved’ smart folder.
Quite a long while ago, I really enjoyed The 5th Exotic by Quantic. Today, I rediscovered the album — the phrase “Sometimes a man has to a very long way…” kept repeating itself in my mind, and I couldn’t remember where it was from, or what the ending to that sentence was. A quick Google search and I found it.
Listen to the samples they’ve put up, maybe you’ll like it.
Update: Ahem. Apologies to the planets for the ill-formed link…
This video (allegedly) of a Ferrari racing through Paris at up to 140 MPH is just insane. Feels rather like someone is playing Need for Speed actually.
Some have suggested that it may be a motorcycle instead of a car, but the level of tilt on all the maneuvers performed aren’t quite consistent with a bike, and when was the last time you saw a bike drift?
Grab it via one of the methods listed in the post.
