SotD: Pearl Jam - Rearviewmirror

Submitted by Druss on Fri, 2007-07-27 00:15

Today's Song of the Day is Pearl Jam's Rearviewmirror. The song just has so much momentum more or less all the way through, beginning with that excellent riff. The intro riff is incidentally the work of the lead singer - Eddie Vedder.

This song also holds bitter-sweet memories for me along with the entire Yield album.

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows

Submitted by Druss on Mon, 2007-07-23 00:32

I just finished reading Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, thanks to whoever OCR'd it. The book itself, is not bad compared to the rest of the series. However, just as anybody who is aware of my opinions on this subject will attest, J. K. Rowling, while an authoress with a admirable imagination, is just not very good at writing.

Nudity and Spanish movies

Submitted by Druss on Thu, 2007-07-19 03:51

I just finished watching Como Agua Para Chocolate, a Spanish (Mexican) movie which is apparently pretty famous. It was a pretty funny romance, a little weird with some one-hundred-years-of-solitude-esque fantasy elements liberally sprinkled all over. I've been watching a number of Spanish movies off late and have found that a vast majority of them involve copious doses of nudity.

Dead man's blog

Submitted by Druss on Tue, 2007-07-17 03:43

While I was on my the toilet seat just now contemplating my latest toilet paper origami masterpiece, an odd thought crept into my brain out of nowhere... I wondered what percentage of blogs/journals etc. on sites like blogspot would belong to dead people in, say, 20 years time. I suspect that while the medium and feature-set will evolve, the basic concept and practice of having a blog will still stick around. How about in 50 years time? There'd be millions of dead people blogs still available on the ever-eternal (mmm tautology) innernet.

E-mail etiquette and best practices, aka, how not to be a complete fracking n00b

Submitted by Druss on Tue, 2007-07-17 03:05

I was about to educate a co-worker on some of the better practices to follow while communicating on the Internet, and being the generous chap that I am, decided to share these invaluable nuggets of my infinite wisdom with you lot. So, here goes:

  1. Format: Never send e-mails in HTML format. Always use plain-text only.
  2. Subject: Always use a descriptive subject line. Subject lines such as "Hi" and "Please help" will get your behind flamed.

Fantastic Four - Rise Of The Silver Surfer

Submitted by Druss on Fri, 2007-07-13 12:56

I saw Fantastic Four - Rise of the Silver Surfer last night, and boy did it suck! I've not really been much of a fan of either series - FF4 or Silver Surfer, but nevertheless, I thought this might be interesting as I was under the impression that this was the first instance of a crossover. Apparently, this is not the case.
