Just a public service announcement:   FreeBSD plus WindowMaker.  What the fuck else do you need?

- no systemd rootkit-in-waiting
- no pulseaudio making the audio not work
- no stupid fucking politics (I'm looking at YOU Debian)
- no fat stupid bloated "desktop environments" and "object models" pissing everyone off by re-inventing the wheel perpetually and badly
- no RedHat trying to take over the whole ecosystem  (See article 1:  SystemD)

Episode 5 of "Music you've never heard"...this time we're going ambient, with the magic of Robin Guthrie and the minimalist piano of Harold Budd.

Episode 3 of "Music you've never heard"...this time you've never heard it because the shitty radio stations won't play it.   The Cars came back and brought the 80's with them.

In honour of Armikrog's appearance on Steam, here's Klaymen's Theme from the Neverhood.  All of Armikrog's music is done by the same man, Terry S. Taylor.   Everybody Way-oh!

Need to share this link.   Anyone with half a brain should know that Carly Fiorina is not fit to run a lemonade stand, much less a corporation or gods forbid, the Presidency.    Any former HP employee knows what I'm talking about.   But hey, she's well loved in Bangalore.
So I'm using it to tell you how many people she laid off at HP.

Episode 4 of "Music you've never heard"...Devo also came back and put out probably the most amazing album I've ever heard.   But the lamestream radio was too busy playing FatGirl Whines about ExBoyfriend and Stupid ExChristian's Tits Explode.

In defense of that, though, this latest album is de facto pretty similar to that of the singles on the radio. That's evident in the fact that their arrangements aren't nearly as eccentric as their older stuff in the context of when they were released. In fact, even the mastering is similar to how the mainstream pop music is mastered.
Really, while DEVO is amazing, in this record, what they're doing the same thing that every other pop artist is doing, except DEVO is catering to an alternative, more cynical audience. It's still in line with DEVO's ethics, but it's all about the context. This is the band that allowed Disney to butcher their songs and have children cover them, mind you. Now, what makes those songs meaningful has to be the context of them, which makes the Disney covers ironic and in-line with DEVOlution, though they aren't meaningful.
Nothing to be proud of. This is still muzak.

So this is Episode 1 of my "Music you've never heard" show.  First up, proving shoegaze is not dead, the Happy Hollows.   I fucking love this band.

I also want to point out that not only does "Lord British" still live, he's got something new in the works...

I don't care about the MMORPG bullshit...just give me something like Ultima VII, Garriott.  I'll even forgive you for what you did to Ultima IX.
