Mercury Rising

Monday the 5th of September was Freddie Mercury day. The day he would have turned 65, had he lived. This makes me feel a little old, but that’s not the point. The day’s Google doodle (pointed out to me with furious glee by one of my coworkers) led me to YouTube and numerous videos of […]

Epic Googleyep and Other Stories

Update: Redirected video to one which hasn’t been nuked. I’m currently doing some tests on a couple of different data structure implementations for Clockwork Aphid, so while they’re running I thought I’d a bit of time to write a music related post, since I haven’t done one in a while. Epic Googleyep As you may […]

Musical Arithmetic

Okay, so here’s the formula: (A – B) + C = D And here are the variables: A = Evanescence. More specifically: the original line up (as far as most of the world is concerned). I like Evanescence quite a bit, but that’s about 74.2% Amy Lee’s voice. The girl has one hell of a […]

Just Can’t Recommend Highly Enough

Today I finished “The Girl Who Played With Fire”, translated by Reg Keeland from the swedish book of the same name by Stieg Larsson. It’s the sequel to ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” (which is called “Men Who Hate Women” in the original swedish), and I really can’t recommend the pair of them highly enough (as […]

Serendipitous Nostalgia

Today I was walking home from work and absent-mindedly listening to music, when I noticed that that my supposedly shuffled iPod was displaying a definite preference for one band in particular. A band I haven’t really spared a seconds thought in some years. As I walked I hatched a plot a write a blog post regarding the […]

Serendipity

Some things are too perfect for even me to not blog about them. A little while ago I posted a fantastic song called “Still Alive”, which was from the soundtrack to a computer game. Some time before that I talked about a Swedish singer called Lisa Miskovsky whom I quite like. Sometimes the universe gives you […]

Flip side

Two updates in one day shocker! The last one was a little downcast, though, and I felt a need to pass on something awesome by way of balance. Here it is: Perhaps you’re thinking “Huh? Who’s this guy?” or “What’s with the cake?”. You’ve been missing out if that’s the case. Jonathan Coulton (for that is the […]

In search of shiny Swedish music

So in my last (none film review) blog entry I posted a video by a Swedish goth metal band called “Beseech” and then mentioned that they’d split to form two other bands. I was bored waiting for code to run today and did a little digging. Seems there’s a bit more too it than that. The female […]

Eclecticism

Seems the Facebook app does not do what it’s supposed to. Never mind, I shall content myself with the (better) WordPress interface. Maybe I’ll look into writing a Facebook app which interfaces with my RSS feed. That would be cool. I thought I would write a music related post, since I found a couple of […]
