Leonard Cohen, RIP

I did my best,
it wasn't much
I couldn't feel,
so I tried to touch
I've told the truth,
I didn't come to fool you
And even though
it all went wrong
I'll stand before
the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue
but Hallelujah

Christopher Cross, Ride Like The Wind, 1980

It is the night.
My body’s weak.
I’m on the run.
No time to sleep.
I’ve got to ride—
Ride like the wind—
To be free again.

You shouldn'a come at me, bro

On account of him kicking off a rap battle, here's my return volley:

I got dice in my hand and the game is on.
Cold stomp through ya house like a mastodon.
My raps is long and strong like an elephant tusk.
The intelligent, rough lyrics that TC will discuss.
I'm chilled with the Elephant Man, can't they tell that it's us?
Ain't no sittin' around now, bitch. Ya better get up.
Sasquatch and Yeti, yeah I'm callin' ya out.
Any opposition to me is just getttin' stomped out.

You s'posed ta be what? Abominable Flowman?
Ho' catcher? Dope snatcher? Shaped like a snowman?
I was strong for your lady. Yeah she probably want me.
I fucked her once blindly, now she follows me bluntly.
Large appetite, my cock is heavy and hungry.
I smack down rappers like I'm Solomon Grundy.

Yell it out, motha fucka. I can't say it too plain.
This is my jungle, sucker; top of the food chain!
I don't know what ya thought when ya banged out that weak chain.
But this is my court and I'm runnin' a new game.
What? You a Poetical Pachyderm, packin' nuts in?
From ya ass to ya mouth, let ‘em slap on ya chin?
Ya raps ain't no match, feel the back of my Tim's
I'll stomp ya out if ya come at me again.

With liberties from Dr Heckyll and Mr Jive

[Tom] works late at the laboratory
Where things are not as they seem.
He wishes nothing more desperately
Than to fulfill all his dreams.
Letting loose with a scream in the dead of night
As he's breaking new ground.
Trying his best to unlock all the secrets
But he's not sure what he's found.
He is his own little guinea pig
'Cuz they all think he's mad.
Sets his sights on the search of a lifetime
And he's never, never sad.

Tom has the jazz

He’s a boogie down, trip hop, disco fiend with a techno acid rock vibe. He walks proud in KISS boots and a Thriller jacket. Sporting a mock turtleneck and Elton John glasses, he glitzes and shines. He has trained his heart to kick breakbeats and he hums baselines in exhalation. His eyes blink “Rocktastic” in morse code and his stride is a reversed moonwalk. You are jealous.

Some Days…

Some days goes your way
You're on a roll you can't explain
And then it all goes down the drain
Your cat's hit by a car
The ATM eats your card
You're wondering what changed from yesterday
Save me from, from going mental
Save me from just spinning out

Some days are better than lovers
Some days you just can't figure out
Some days you can't explain

My best friend and me one night
Were drinkin' at Pete's on Crescent Height
Just like that we end up in a fight
Like a yo-yo up and down
You're headin' north, you end up south

Save me from, from going mental
Save me from just spinning out

Some days are better than lovers
Some days you just can't figure out
Some days are better than others
You can't explain some days away
Someday

Save me from, from going mental
Save me from spinning out

Some days are better
Some days are never
Some days, whatever

Some days are better than lovers
Some days you just can't figure out
Some days are better than others
Some days you just can't get out
Someday...

with thanks to Meredith Brooks

Thrilling

It's close to midnight and something evil's lurking in the dark
Under the moonlight, you see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream but terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes
You're paralyzed'Cause this is thriller.

Are you tone deaf?

Test the quality of your musical ear. I scored a 72.2%. The scale is as follows:

Greater than 90%: World Class Musical Ability
Greater than 75%: Excellent Musical Ability
Greater than 60%: Good Musical Ability
Less than 50%: You may have a Pitch PErception Issue

It takes about 5 minutes or so. It was fun. Now you try.

Windows Media Center Edition 2005 blows vomit

OK. It's a bit of an overstatement, but...

When you buy a Media PC with a stereo rack component look and feel that bills itself as a replacement for your Tivo, it should be able to fill that role. Windows Media Center Edition 2005 does not. The system would go into suspend mode and require a reboot to return to normal operation. It wouldn't play many of the media files I threw at it. I understand not playing flac files out of the box (it's a bit obscure, I suppose) but many AVI files and even some MPGs were non-working. All those files, for the record, played just fine in Linux. The guide information was regularly incorrect. And finally, when I finally decided to show it to someone else, I fast forwarded through the commercials of a show only to find that it would not leave fast-forward mode.

Needless to say, the system was returned. I want to be clear, the system, an HP Media Center PC, was not the problem. The problem was entirely Mirosoft's. All the problems had patches which fixed those problems and added new ones. In the end, I found myself performing maintainence on a box that was supposed to be a stereo rack component. I don't have to do this for my DVD player, nor for my extant Tivo. I don't feel that I should have to do it for my Tivo Replacement.

Total satisfaction score: 3 out of a possible 10. The idea has promise, but the software implementation was a miserable failure. I suspect MythTV would have been a better choice for HP to put under the hood.

Lush Life by Natalie Cole

Then you came along with your siren of song
To tempt me to madness!
I thought for a while that your poignant smile was tinged with the sadness
Of a great love for me.

The Case of the Haunted Hayride

I, Denise, Cadence, Brent, Kyoko, Hanna, Chris Susko, and Chris Susko's woman all went to the Hunt Club Halloween thingy last night.

Firstly, regardless of what lies others might spread in the wake of this event, I carried myself with dignity and respect.

Secondly, much fun was had by all. There were long lines and stupid, lying pizza men, but once you get past that, the night was brisk but not cold and the events were well done. Those that didn't go are worse for having abstained.

Denise and Kyoko and the children (Hanna and Cadence) spent most of their time in the main barn area with the music and dancing and *GASP* karaoke! You haven't lived til you've seen a drunk dude in a poor wolfman costume singing along to Warren Zevon's Werewolves of London. It hurt my ears and soul in ways unspeakable.

If I did, but I don't, so I won't, but if I did....

So, as everyone knows I've been boycotting the RIAA's music since around 1997 or so. The only new music I get is from non-RIAA artists who actually want me to hear their stuff. That said, I saw Nellie McKay on David Letterman a few months ago and I've been interested in her music ever since. I downloaded the free stuff she put out, but I won't buy her CD (boycott and all that). Maybe if she comes into town on tour I'll go see her.
