i saw a video of the ohio players "fire" recorded from some german tv show in that glorious era known as the 70's. this clip is valuable from a historical perspective as this was obviously the funkiest moment in history.

happy b-day google!

also, sept 19th is talk like a pirate day

*post edited to fix confusing typo*

while i can respect the recording industries' concern about copyright violation, this seems a bit ridiculous. perhaps this is why "If You're Happy and You Know It" is not on the top of sales charts...

so much for the civility of the british

interesting comparison of cost of windows vs. linux regarding certain kinds of projects. there is truth there. when i did j2ee development - there were so many configuration issues - took far longer to do some things. of course, the study was paid by m$ so i am not convinced of the objectivity....

btw - does anyone else but me (and loki) find it funny the largest linux company in china is "red flag linux"

also, keep hearing spiritualized on bbc6 - perhaps one of my rich benefactors will consider buying me a late b-day present...

i see after a blogdrought, we are back to the multi-post days!

if you don't already, read fluid pudding . one classic post after another. love the starbucks story. loved it. when i grow up, i want to write like her. plus she has one of the top three cutest kids in history...

happy boy

in the words of the beat farmers, i'm a happy boy.

alias season premiere is this sunday

i've been listening to no doubt a lot lately -- esp. return of saturn and rock steady. they are a really good band - prob. the best thing going as far as mainstream pop, top 40-ish music. admittedly, i was drawn into the band by the considerable charismatic charms of gwen stefani, but they are more than that. many of their songs are suprisingly thoughful which is not necessarily apparent on first listen. the song "underneath it all", to me, is a very touching, witty love song - which as a person involved in a long term relationship, i can really identify with. several of the songs on return of saturn (ex-girlfriend, simple kind of life, magic in the maekup, six fet underground, etc....) are smart without being heavy or pompous. and perhaps most importantly for a pop band, they have not lost their sense of fun. the music is diverse and always rocking...plus the the considerable charismatic charms of gwen stefani ;-)
