Last night Casey and I attending the Grand Forks performance of Cirque du Soleil’s Delirium, their traveling concert featuring remixed music from other Cirque shows. This was the first time we’ve seen one of their performances, and it was, in a word, amazing. The set for Delirium is huge, and plays an integral part in […]
Baby Got Back Cover
Anyone who was a teenager in the 90’s like me will probably appreciate this. Another “Wonderful Thing ” found on Boing Boing: a folksie cover of Sir Mix-A-Lot’s Baby Got Back. It’s simply…perfect. http://songs.jonathancoulton.com/mp3/Baby%20Got%20Back.mp3 Update: Here’s the direct link to the song.
Harvey Danger Taking A Risk
Via Boing Boing, Harvey Danger (of Flagpole Sitta fame), just released their latest album, Little by Little, for free download on the Internet.

Between work, my MBA classes, and my own reading list, I feel like I’m absorbing more knowledge now than in any other […]

He recently released a remix of the supposed 1915 film masterpiece “Birth of a Nation“, which depicts the confederates as heros and is apparently one of the most racist movies of all time. I’ve never seen the movie myself (and […]
A Whole Lot of Crap
It’s been awhile since I last wrote, and a lot has happened in that time. I have been really busy with both work and school the month, although that’s not really anything new. I’ve been doing a lot of little projects and activities for work, and it almost feels like I’ve been running in place […]
Where Have All the iTunes Gone?
Here we are, one week after the official annoucement of the Pepsi/Apple promotion to give away 100 million free songs on iTunes, and I still haven’t seen any 20-oz bottles with the correct bottle tops in Grand Forks. I’m guessing the problem is one of the following: either distributors are slow at restocking the shelves […]
