sometimes it looks like a frog

Goodbye Blue Monday

  Posted January 4th 2008 by Dae

A taxi two trains a bus a plane and God help me is it good to be home. The highlight of the trip was an encounter with Stansted airport security officials enforcing the new rules on bringing aboard liquids. Ended up draining a hip flask in the middle of the departure lounge under the unblinking eyes of the built, balding security guard and a bevy of amused bystanders.

It is in any case 2008 which if you ask me is an improvement on 2007 in at least as much as it just sort of sounds better, you know. Anyway thanks to all you faggots who made this Christmas as good as it was. I should be in England again for a couple of days in February for my 21st.

P.S. In celebration of finishing my gay essay, here is a still from Barry Lyndon ("putting it on the front page so I can look at it more"):

OiNK & tv-links: neva4get

  Posted October 26th 2007 by Dae

Condolences too to the poor bastards who got canned. Not that they could even charge the tv-links operator with anything. As well arrest Google; see g2p for the potential legality of their links. Apparently the mistake made by these individuals was basing their operations in a country that gives a shit. They can't actually prosecute the sites that physically host the links on tv-links, you know, the ones that are actually breaking the law, because, well, I guess it's a lot less work to don riot-gear and get to profession'ly chastisin' some poor nerd from Cheltenham or, in OiNK's case, let loose the malnourished office-jockeys in the computer crime department for a one-off jaunt to Amsterdam to beat on some unfortunate stoner's server rack.

It all comes across as a bit pathetic. OiNK had about eighty thousand active members. That's compared to some eight million knowing downloaders of unlicensed music in the UK alone, as of four years ago. I mean, we're living in a world where around one in ten eight year olds illegally download music. Apparently some people still aren't getting this. It's become laughably easy to watch and hear shit for free. Fuck off the guys at least trying to maintain some of the quality of the product and get to making that product something worth paying for.

Cue open-source totally automated de-centralised invite-based torrent software. As LimeWire proved, you'll have trouble arresting a program.

i offer this as further proof that sometimes i do things

Breakfast EP

  Posted September 3rd 2007 by Dae

It's been a while! The holidays have been pretty riotous, what with usual Suffolk fair, the festival here in Edinburgh (which we did better at than last year, thanks to Anna) and wild mind-expanding music making in the rural Scottish Borders. Angus and myself churned out enough bizarre little numbers for an EP of sorts. We're no longer simply cantlin & angus though, but British Organ, a name taken perhaps inexcusably from that of our favourite sound on the Korg MS2000. I was distressed to uncover no significant difference of design between organs British or otherwise. If you're particularly interested, you can hear the sound clean in track four of the EP, my limp little pop pastiche, or twiddled & dirtied on Good Friday, an old track not on the record.

So, uh, we now have a MySpace and everything? If you actually want to listen to the tunes though you should go ahead and download them in decent quality. We like feedback.
