my debut album

According to this algorithm, I should start a band called 6553 Seehaus, record an album named "Unstable Without Knowing It", and use this random person's flickr picture as the cover art. I think the first two work together better than the third.

i quit

Goddammit. It's getting to be hard enough to maintain interest in this election, much less take it seriously... but dammit, people.

Take home message: we can no longer blame the media alone for turning this election into a circus sideshow. The remaining candidates are apparently happy enough to play along with this bullshit.

Did anyone else read this latest exchange between Clinton and Obama?

Heavy stuff.

ETA: Samuel L. Jackson weighs in on the controversy.

Do they play Uno in Spanish-speaking countries? If so, do they call it "One"?

what $18 gets you these days

God bless Amie Street, and Polyvinyl, Matador, and Beggars for releasing their catalogs on Amie Street. Lots and lots of indie music is now available. The way Amie Street works, for those who haven't used it before, is that when music is released it starts out free or with a minimal cost (10 cents or so per track), and then as it gets popular, the price goes up, I think topping out at 99 cents. So with all the new releases, I spent $18 and got:

Cat Power - You Are Free
Cornershop - Handcream for a Generation
Interpol - Turn on the Bright Lights
Mission of Burma - The Obliterati
The Mountain Goats - Get Lonely
Neu! - Neu!
The New Pornographers - Challengers
Of Montreal - Satanic Panic in the Attic
Of Montreal - Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer?
Pavement - Slanted and Enchanted
Pavement - Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain
Pavement - Wowee Zowee
Pixies - Bossanova
Pixies - Come On Pilgrim
Pixies - Trompe Le Monde
Prodigy - Experience
Super Furry Animals - Phantom Power
Voxtrot - Voxtrot
Voxtrot - Your Biggest Fan (EP)

$18 = 18 albums and an EP. Not bad.

i do, i trust the computer

I got this nice message on my terminal tonight while FTPing all my backed up files back onto my now-fixed computer. Slightly disconcerting, yet thoroughly awesome easter egg.
