  • 00:03:41: This is probably a bad time to mention that, via emulators, I can play the original Mortal Kombat online. No pass needed. http://j.mp/gZcJK4
  • 00:04:56: http://bit.ly/ig9eJG - FUCK! God DAMNIT, EA. NOW you decide to enforce a copyright that you're not using? Fuck you. *downloads anyway*
  • 00:06:15: To clarify: Origin not only allowed the game to be freeware, they allowed the books to be freeware with it. This is a silly reversal.
  • 00:13:35: So they're remaking ARTHUR? Really? Are we that out of ideas?
  • 02:00:04: Interesting data from Salon on unemployment compensation. Note the unemployment rates of each category. http://bit.ly/fdkLDN
  • 04:37:26: I urge anyone with inventive tastes in music to give this album by Reno Project 1.0 a try. It's a great listen. http://bit.ly/hROx8E
  • 15:47:00: Naturally, Brian Reynolds of Zynga doesn't tell Industry Gamers that their game designers were ordered to steal games. http://bit.ly/ecHuKq
  • 16:09:21: We're looking at 5-10 inches of snow tomorrow and Friday. You have got to be shitting me.
  • 16:41:33: Hey Rovio. Go fuck yourselves. I happen to LIKE those $49 pieces of plastic because they're better than your game. http://j.mp/e3VI9E
  • 22:22:01: Iginla vs. Emery tonight? Someone make sure @twelveicings is alright!
  • 22:25:43: Is that Donald Trump on O'Reilly? Yikes.
  • 22:54:23: Just got home. About to watch Calgary vs. Anaheim, or as I like to call it, Fucking A Must Calgary Get Two Points.
  • 22:56:25: St. Louis beat Detroit 10-3? Who was Detroit's goaltender, Tim Cheveldae?
  • 23:03:58: HOLY SHIT! Next week, for being in PlayStation Plus, I get SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2!!! It's only the 17th version of the game! Fuck yeah!
  • 23:07:34: I hate that Dropkick Murphy's song about shipping up to Boston. I especially hate hearing it outside of Boston. Like in CALGARY.
  • 23:09:46: Every time I look, Jay Bouwmeester is getting burned. $6m!
  • 23:10:40: Calgary's going to lose, and with that, I think they're done for the playoffs. As a Canucks fan, I will now breathe a sigh of relief.
  • 23:12:20: This is horseshit. Why did Calgary not pull Kipper two goals down? They quit. And Mark Giordano is a fucking faggot.
  • 23:13:04: When he went on to celebrate, Bobby Ryan called Giordano a "fucking pussy", it looked like. I totally agree. What bullshit.
  • 23:17:07: WOW. That's about $100bn USD. RT @Reuters: Japan’s Sakurai: Funds needed for extra budgets (not disaster relief) likely over 10 trln yen
  • 23:31:58: Just watched highlights of the Detroit game. Let's just say Detroit's asked Jimmy Howard twelve times "so you'll be ready soon, right?"

Listening to this right now, and yeah, it's a download all right. Thanks for bringing it to my attention! ♥

I think the best thing that's happened to my music tastes recently is reinstalling Linux. That's because Rhythmbox has Jamendo native to it, which allows downloads of music on a GNU license (meaning, it's free, just don't use it commercially). This is where I find really exotic genres like acid jazz, which is where I found this.

You can find stuff like it on the Jamendo website if you're a Windows or Mac user, which allows downloads with the option - not requirement - to donate.

Ooh, then I think I'll have to take a look around there--thanks for the tip!

Actually, while I'm thinking about it, I want to ask YOU a question:

I like pianos, usually in tune with other music. My tastes don't lean classical; instead, I like pianos when used with what I can describe as melodic tendencies. Like in Jazz, or even rock. What would you recommend for someone like me, because I really don't know where to look?

Hmm, you're going to have to give me a bit to think about that one. For all I play the piano, I don't listen to a huge amount of piano music on my downtime. My usual go-to for recommendations of this nature is Vienna Teng, but I'm not so sure she'd be your cup of tea. I also am a big fan of Joe Hisaishi's piano music--he does the soundtracks for Miyazaki's movies. His classical influences are pretty obvious, though, so there's that.

As for jazz music--I'll ask around. I shame my former fellow music students by being woefully undereducated and indiscriminate about my jazz listening, so if you'd like names, you'll have to give me a bit. ^_^;

EDIT: Oh, duh, one of my favourite jrockers, Gackt, is a pianist as well as a vocalist. His solo, "Blue," was one of the first I recorded, and his unplugged album, The Seventh Night, has some really good examples of his work.

Actually, now that I'm thinking of it and am looking around to jog my memory, if you like classic jazz, check out Count Basie, Nat King Cole, Duke Ellington, and George Gershwin. I'm required by law to suggest Oscar Peterson, so try him out, too. :P

Ragtime is kind of an acquired taste, I find, but if you're interested, Scott Joplin is a great place to start.

Anyway, these are fairly obvious choices and you may have already run into all of these guys before, but hopefully I'll have more for you in a few days.
