Election 2008: A Song for McCain

I have decided to add my own soundtrack to the final days of the Election. We will start with my choice for McCain's theme song. This is La Ballata Di Hank McCain by Ennio Morricone from the film Gli Intoccabili. I kinda want McCain to win simply so I can get four more years of mileage out of this track. I can't believe this song wasn't picked up by some McCain supporter and made into a glowing YouTube video. Oh, well. Enjoy!

Stay tuned, my pick for Obama is coming tomorrow.

Election 2008: Despair

My first in a series of posts about Election 2008. Your choice this year: a huge government liberal or a big government conservative—neither of which showed an ounce of leadership skill during the bailout crisis.

Random Thought

Call me crazy, but A-ha's Take on Me has got to me one of the greatest singles ever. Seriously.

RSS Migration

I am trying to automate my RSS feed using Feed43.com. Up until now I have been hand coding my RSS using FeedSpring. However, FeedSpring is starting to crap out as my feed gets longer and longer. So please, update your RSS aggregator (Google Reader is the best) with the new URL: http://www.feed43.com/5185026116140505.xml

Updated Art Gallery

I'm doing some under the hood updates of this site (click the Quick Links title bar. Magical, right?). The first major change is an updated portfolio page. No, no new art—just a fancy new thumbnail browser.

Revisiting Old Music Part (De-Di)

Devo - Now it Can Be Told
Despite being recorded during the waning years of Devo, this live album is actually pretty great. They even make the bad Total Devo tracks seem almost good.
Devo - Smooth Noodle Maps
Devo's last release is okay. I bit more consistant than Total Devo. But still nothing close to their glory days.

I've Added a Quick Links Nav to the Site

A little maintenance note here: I added a few links to the home page in the form of that quick links widget off to the left. If you click the bar at the top it disappears. Pretty neato keano I'd say.

Twilight Zone for Your Listening Pleasure

Yesterday I came across this incredible Web log, Twilight Zone for Your Listening Pleasure. This guy posts tons and tons of great garage and rock 'n' roll records with large cover scans and links to the full albums in MP3 format. Usually, you just click in to the comments of each blog post and you are given a link the the MP3s in zip format. Cut-n-paste the link and you can grab the files for free. There is a limit of one package download per hour, but it's worth the wait to get your ears on some of these comps.
