Podcasting, I-Tunes, Grey Album
For the love of god, if you're using Windows Media Player, please consider ITunes for managing your music library. I don't say that because I hate Microsoft or because Apple stuff is ooober hip. The software is simply better. For instance, Quicktime/Itunes supports Mpeg4 video and Internet radio playlists - like Winamp used to. I'm a fan of ease of use and good user interface design, it's got my vote. Grab 'em here.
Now that that's out of the way why not watch the Public Domain movie Santa Claus Conquerors the Martians. It's Campy like The Gap but even more affordable.
If that's not your style check out the Grey Album by DJ DangerMouse. From the Rolling Stone review:
" It's the ultimate remix record: Underground DJ Danger Mouse (a.k.a. Brian Burton) takes a cappella tracks from Jay-Z's The Black Album and composes new beats for each song using only samples from the Beatles' "White Album." The result, the aptly titled Grey Album, is an ingenious hip-hop record that sounds oddly ahead of its time."
It's kind of strange that the album is illegal. Books of the past were burned because of their morally corrupt fiber, in the future it seems books will be burned because of copyright excesses.
