Powerhouse from Antonio Linhares on Vimeo.

That reminds me, I've been thinking about Raymond Scott lately. It's too bad his quintet's version of his "Powerhouse" doesn't have the- well, power- of Carl Stalling's Loony Tunes version, which the first minute of this is based on. (Maybe I should rip this as an MP3...I purchased a Carl Stalling mp3 from Amazon, but this cut wasn't stand alone, just mashed in with all the rest.)

http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/news/2009/07/-it-sounds-like-something.ars - "like BattleBots, but with money". I always suspected greedier, smarter people than me were running my stock market ideas...
Dave Sim's Tangent vs Valerie Solanas SCUM manifesto - FIGHT! Lets see who can be the most screwed up about the other gender. (Still like Solanas' "zestfully, lustfully, tearing off a piece" description of good sex.)
