Lady Sovereign - Random

God, for some stupid reason the remix of this song is stuck in my head. The track production reminds me of something I heard when I saw Del the Funkee Homosapien perform @ a venue in San Jose about 7 or 8 years ago. I think Cut Chemist was the DJ at that time. I've been using Serato to isolate the end and scratch over it. It has it all: pounding bass, a ticky-ticky synth pattern, the sound of a horn @ either a soccer game or a club, and some eerie church music. Yeah it's funky.

Ribbit vs. Google Voice

Just got my Ribbit Beta account. Looks purty so far. It's amusing how Ribbit is approaching it's website in an almost "Google-like" fashion considering that Google voice is the competition. I actually found this tidbit on Lifehacker so we'll see how it turns out. So far, I got free business cards from Google voice which is the only thing really making me prefer Google Voice @ this time :) LOL. Anyways, more to come...

Wow. It's my yearly post. Just plain sad.

That's the problem with these social sites and blogs. There are too damn many of them. How can you manage twitter, facebook, myspace, LinkedIn, Flickr, and stil have a life full of special goodness. Right now, I would rather be reading or maybe studying up on some things related to work. Or maybe I would rather be on my turntables trying to concoct the perfect beat juggle. Or maybe I would rather be geeking away at setting up a HTPC using a NVIDIA ION chipset (very cool btw). Or maybe I would rather be making tamales with my friends (muy dificil!). Or maybe I would rather be mucking around with my Flip Video attempting to invoke my inner auteur. Oh, the choices are limitless and to think that we have to spend at least a 1/12th or an 1/8th of our day managing these stupid online interaction thingamajigees is insanity. I think we're at the point of watching all these online social interaction sites implode on themselves leaving us at a black screen with a DOS prompt. C:>_ Much, much easier.
