I forgot to mention this yesterday, but Frank Turner's latest album, Love, Ire, and Song
, was released in the US yesterday via Epitaph Records. An odd fit for them, but a totally awesome album from a really fantastic singer/songwriter. His new album, Poetry of the Deed
, is dropping Sept. 7th, 2009. It's gonna be great!
Here's a video for his song "Photosynthesis."
Got a whole bunch of records I had somewhat forgot that I'd ordered yesterday:
- Bad Religion - No Control
- Thee Makeout Party - Play Pretend
- Shark Pants - Porno Snakehead
- Screeching Weasel - Wiggle
- A second copy of the Carry the Torch
Kid Dynamite tribute 2xLP, because I'm a moron and pre-ordered it twice from two different sources, months apart
So, if anyone knows/is a Kid Dynamite fan who would love a collection of KD covers on vinyl, send 'em my way. I somehow doubt there's a huge market for this sucker (as eBay has not a single listing).
So, sometimes I don't mind Larry. Other times, like today, when he argued that the Cambridge cops were right to arrest Harvard professor Henry Gates
, and probably should have done more- I believe he said he should have been shot, thought I think/hope he was being hyperbolic- I really don't know what else to do other than shake my head in disbelief. Oy.
Looks like the restart of the
Large Hadron Collider has been pushed back yet again
, to mid-November. So you've got a few months more to get everything you've wanted in life done. Hop to it.
Windows 7, Microsoft's follow-up to the much-maligned Vista, is rolling out to maufacturing August 6th
, with some beta testers and OEMs getting it now. What do you think about the forthcoming version of the world's most, uh, prevalent operating system? Any of you play around with Win7 yet? I toyed with a couple of betas and found it to be a great improvement to Vista, but then, I appreciate some of the steps forward that Vista made.
I still would love to see MS put some of its massive brainpower toward an all-new Windows kernel/architecture, but that's a dream I doubt I'll see for another 10 years. Though, it does seem like the corporate culture over in Redmond is undergoing something of a shift.
