Porsupah in the wide blue open

(no subject)

Music video for the day: Infected Mushroom - Becoming Insane. One of their newer works, and still as nifty as ever. It's only a mono audio track, and a small frame size, but still good listening.

Web advertising on a busy site must rake in a few pennies - I see RapidShare is now claiming 1PB of storage and 80Gbps bandwidth.

I suppose I see what they mean, but still, it caught me a bit by surprise to see, on the back of the bubble bath container last night, "suitable for vegetarians".. does this mean some bubble baths do contain, say, lard? (Cheaper than milk, one supposes)

Oh, if only this "Vista Transformation Pack" really did what it claimed.. that'd easily be worth firing up a Microsoft OS for. ^_^

I'm thoroughly enjoying the soundtrack to Brave Story, an anime feature released this year. It's largely orchestral, but with the score composed by Juno Reactor - it sounds surprisingly traditional, though, dipping into the positively classical with tracks like Juno Waltz, then steering into Gaelic melodies like A Wish For Each Other.

Ah, it's Christmas. ^_^ Here it is, along with an unrelated bonus of interest to anyone who enjoys Infected Mushroom or psytrance in general: Skazi: Animal, an outfit, like IM, also from Israel.

Here's a TV show I thought worth passing on - The Lost Gospel of Judas (46 min, 40MB). It's an interesting look into the early days of Christianity, wherein some thirty gospels existed, prior to an apparent culling by church leaders down to the four known today, on the basis of being the simplest to communicate. In this case, it's believed the Gnostics were responsible. The restoration of the manuscript is quite an achievement, as it had spent sixteen years sat unprotected in a Long Island bank deposit box. The sight of it, pre-restoration, may give bibiophiles palpitations - yet, with quite extreme care, they were indeed able to piece most of it back together, into a form where it could then be translated from Coptic.
