Don’t try this at home

Sad Mac :(High on the lists of things you probably don’t want to try: moving your iTunes music library to an external hard drive while your iPod is connected. The library move (using Consolidate Library) works just fine, UNTIL the next time you try to sync your iPod.

Cobra-la-la-la-la-…you get the idea.

In honour of (or perhaps in spite of), the G.I. Joe movie opening today, I thought I’d post something Cobra-related that doesn’t suck or yell “RETREAT!” when the wind shifts.

I’m loving thesixtyone, even more so now that my external drive with my ITunes music stash on it is on the fritz, and this is my current favorite song:

Kutiman

So apparently I’ve been living in a cave, but at least now my cave has streaming Kutiman in it.

The music reminds me of Digable Planets meets DJ Shadow, but the youtube mashup videos take it to another level.

This stuff is too awesome to not get sued out of existence.

Peter and the Will

Peter and the WolfAmong the many reasons I’m proud of my son:

I started playing Peter and the Wolf for Will a few weeks ago. I remembered loving it as a child myself, and it also gave us a break from oft insipid children’s music. YouTube even obliged us with the Disney version.

Well, he loves it. He’s been singing the theme non-stop, and pretending he’s the wolf. We try to stop him when he growls at his sister too much. I didn’t realize until this week that he’s *also* been singing it non-stop at pre-school. His teacher asked us if we could make her a copy of the music so she could share it with the rest of the class.

Will just got his classmates interested in classical music, and I think that’s pretty awesome.

TATW #250

Posted 5 years, 6 months ago at 13:54. 0 comments

Trance Around The WorldMy iTunes play count of last week’s episode #250 of Trance Around The World continues to climb.

If you only have a passing interest in trance music, I recommend this episode as a great summary of what’s transpired in the past year. The only surprise for me was that Cocktail Bar didn’t make the cut. It certainly got a lot of play on TATW (and here) over the summer. Maybe it lucked out at #21.

Trance Around The World

Trance Around The WorldMy favorite weekly radio show, Trance Around The World, is now available as a podcast. In the past, I’ve had to download the show by hand, either from Trance Fresh or The Mixing Bowl if I needed to prop up my ratio. This show is usually the musical highlight of my week, so having it appear magically on my computer straight from the source and at a known level of quality is fantastic.

These…are not the hammer

OK, so I’m a fanboy, but go check out Joss’ latest project, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, anyway. Episodes I and II are online already, with the final episode scheduled for Saturday.

Neil Patrick Harris steals the show so far, but Nathan Fillion never fails to entertain, going from comically over-archetypal superhero to penis…erm, dick at the drop of a hat. Does Nathan remind anyone else of a young Elvis, or is it just me and my man-crush?

Weezer joins the fight against boredom

Little know fact: Weezer fans are 60% more likely to drink microbrew beer.

Glad to see someone gaining traction from our idea, even if we could not.
