Trevor Rabin did music for Enemy of the State, you know.

I did not know that. That man is everywhere.

Utopia - ANTHOLOGY

Good stuff, but I prefer my Todd non-Utopian.

Great album!

Wow, a few more Buggles fans!  I think I still have the LP, since I wasn't sure if it would make it to CD.  Did find a decent scan of the cover, below.

"Crybaby" is the best song.

They completely devolved...

Mahler, you ought to go see it.
he was as f*cked-up as you are."

It has "33" in red felt stitched onto its left foot sole as it's for a friend's 33rd birthday.

Starting some small scale WWII aircraft models and this allows me to paint the canopy frame without too many problems.

How is the smell? ;)

I have bought tickets for his concert in Oslo in May, so I needed to hear his most recent CD:



IMO Nick Cave consistently has been on a very high level for many, many years. Quite unusual for a rock artist!

Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening. Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural and less tiresome in headphone listening.

Recently gave their Tri Repetae a listen and found it better than I remembered.

I've started buying copies of my favorite films to keep for posterity, with these two:



The transfer of this is gorgeous and they've (thankfully) changed the line "I need more life, f**ker" to "I need more life, father."



I will more than likely end up buying all the Bressons.  :)

Maybe a dumb question, but wouldn't it be better to wait for the inevitable high-definition re-releases of popular films like Blade Runner? The image quality curve is definitely pretty near the apex with HD DVDs, so it's unlikely that they would be as readily replacable by another format later on with as big a difference between it as DVD to Blu-Ray - IMO a good choice for a "reference" copy to own, and keep going back to over the years.
