Wow, I am entranced by what Lala is evolving into…. Very cool….in fact this has the promise to be better than sliced iTunes with a dab of Facebook and a mutant splash of a Netflix model as a chaser.

Post Barbie Mall Mash

June 29, 2008

At the town transfer station, where residents bring their garbage and treasures for others, these offerings really stood out. Pinkletink_03 snapped this, I particularly appreciate the bracelet worn by the starlet.

That piano back had an amazing array of metal and string on the other side; I regret not picking up and out the doll and the piano’s guts. Can’t you hear their glorious ragtime bump?

Maybe the steampunk lab can tell you?

I’m still lookin’, so I can’t help you.

The Most Unwanted Music, not…. really?

Ok, well I enjoy and seek out this stuff. The shtick surrounding it is clever too. I only found out about this recently surfing WFMU’s blog. It’s scientifically proven.

Now, unfortunately this song does sort of promulgate the bigotry toward the wide world of bagpipes, when what they are really demonstrating is that the Great Highland bagpipes are what at the very least many people find, at best, hard to take, which I attribute to people not hearing the pipes in the ideal environment for which they were designed, which is of course in the great outdoors, perhaps a rolling hill, glen or aside a bonny brook…

PS The song above is long, like 25min. long…

Radiohead’s Nude: The Let’s Get Physical Mashup by J. Houston

June 17, 2008

Very interesting project related to the Radiohead Nude remix thing that I partook in a while back. James Houston missed the deadlines for said “contest” but decided to though some stuff together….Very nice. Like he says:

“Based on the lyric (and alternate title) “Big Ideas: Don’t get any” I grouped together a collection of old redundant hardware, and placed them in a situation where they’re trying their best to do something that they’re not exactly designed to do, and not quite getting there. It doesn’t sound great, as it’s not supposed to.”

I actually built one of the Sinclair computers that he uses in this project back in the summer of ’81,a trip to see it used here. He certainly made better use of it than me. Check it and give it some time, it really does not kick in until about :45 sec, it is worth the wait:
