Goodle News

Sick and tired of depressing news? Then try Goodle News - only nice stuff makes it to the front page.

Your / you're revisited

One dwarf to drool on all, and in the darkness bugger them.

The BBC are obviously dumbing down for the interweb. There's a classic misuse of your in this story - quoting a judge no less.

"Your history proves your a psychopath and sadist."


50 Coolest Apes Of All Time



RetroCrush are celebrating Year of the Monkey with the ultimate guide to cool monkeys.

Whistlers Mother(lode)

The Online Guide to Whistling Records is just what it says on the tin. I know nowt about famous whistlers and the only person I can think of that whistled on records is/was Roger Whittaker (you have to love his local knowledge - Durham on the Tyne?) but there is no mention of him. Obviously a lightweight!

Flash Chess

That's chess done with Flash rather than a very impressive version of chess (remember BattleChess? Best. Chess. Ever. Except of course the infamous networked chess Dogs and I wrote about a squillion years ago. The handover mechanism consisted of us waving at each other at opposite ends of the room to tell each other we had moved.).



Don't worry - it's not as hard as these - I played it in Shallow mode and beat it in 11 moves (including it's own).

One for Bungers

To make his planned iPod experience cheaper here's a DIY iPod battery. Up to 10 hrs playing time for a few quid. Bargain.

Added comments thingy

and a colour change for good measure!



The comments are by HaloScan (as mentioned to me by ILuvNufc the other night). I'll give these a go and see what they are like. I've finally decided to add a comments thing to this after not doing any development work recently on the new New Links site. Why? I bought Morrowind: GOTY for the Xbox the other day!

Never miss the bowl again.

Because your bog can have lights. Cool.

Getting too old for your computer?

Then MS have some advice for you, you myopic, deaf creaker.

You are a spizz!



But that's ok because everyone else in the world is too!

Jeebus in the clouds



Jesus in the Clouds is a site full of images of Jesus seen in clouds. And tornadoes. And trees. And lots of other places too. Jesus is truly everywhere. Hallelul Haleluj Halaluj Yay!!!

Serious LEGO



All the models on this page actually do things - like play the xylophone or solve the tower of hanoi puzzle.

DIY Explosions

Do you feel like emulating those explosions? "You too can build thunderous and exciting Matchstick Rockets". I'm off to invade France.

Explosions

This is the website of Exponent who are accident investigators. The link is to their explosion multimedia gallery.

Tiny radar could make driving safer.

Friday challenge?

With the snow outside we could practice for World Snowball Fighting Championships in Japan.

EvilLyrics

EvilLyrics brings up lyrics for songs in various media players including WMP and WinAmp. No good for Bungers though - no iTunes support yet. Now you too can understand what System Of A Down are singing about. I'm off to do some karaoke.

Oh... wait... it was me

Not a "New" Link, but a reminder...

...just in case anyone has forgotten just how funny group hug // anonymous online confessions are!

In the news this morning...

Good to see Michael Howard taking decisive action over the Tory MP sacked for cockler joke. He better watch out, making intelligent quick, common sense decisions - he may end up as PM!!

Elsewhere New Yorkers are writing nasty things about boys on their T-shirts. Scr3w NYC, I'm off to Colombia for some fine exports and sweet a$$ hunnies!!! (see previous post!)

Taht didn't last long!

Oooo bungers!
Dammit!

Giving it up for Lent!

Dammit Beavis!!

My code's gone to sh1t, so I'm going to stop playing with my big pink organ for lent!

It's nearly here..




The new Raleigh Chopper is nearly upon us - but I notice from the picture that they've moved the gear stick - aaahh fond memories of a gear slip followed by intense pain in the scrotum.

GoogObits



An obituaries blog - with lots of links to other stuff in the text.

Euro space missions still cack

The Rosetta launch has been delayed until tomorrow due to bad weather. We should enter this in the dead pool thing - it's bound to explode or something.

More on XBox 2 hard drive

MS have signed a deal with a flash memory manufacturer. Could large capacity flash memory be the replacement for the hard drive?

Sony delays launch of PSP

Sony delays launch of PSP until 2005. 2005 is going to be very expensive at this rate - XBox 2, PS3, GC2 and now this. Better start saving.

Spy Gadgets

Stills from a documentary about CIA gadgets - including motion detecting poo. Why would it want to detect itself?

If I wanted a new graphics card I'd get one of
these. And I'd buy it here for about £142. It's as fast as my Radeon 9700 Pro but a hell of a lot cheaper.

Edit: Yes I was up late last night and yes I am bloomin' knackered this morning. But I've got a half day holiday this afternoon so I'll be watching the TOON kick ass.

Scandal in MP3 stylee

Here is an MP3 of Richard Bacon interviewing someone about the Prince Charlie scandal a while back and the person getting interviewed tells it like it is.

The whimsical world of fashion. Nipples are so yesterday.

And just in case you can't work out how to apply your new fashion accessory you can find instructions here.

Titular entertainment


The good news is that nipples are in this year. SFW kindof

Hypnotism

I always thought I could never be hypnotised. But how wrong I was. NSFW

Identity crisis continued

And if I was a robot I would be known as.

Especially for Bungers

As he's suffering from an identity crisis maybe he should try a new alias

I tested it with mm Chronic and got Pink Fairy Pants. Rather appropriate I'd say.

Do we want NASA content?

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

Yes,i do agree this is rather silly.




You're The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe!

by C.S. Lewis

You were just looking for some decent clothes when everything changed
quite dramatically. For the better or for the worse, it is still hard to tell. Now it
seems like winter will never end and you feel cursed. Soon there will be an epic
struggle between two forces in your life and you are very concerned about a betrayal
that could turn the balance. If this makes it sound like you're re-enacting Christian
theological events, that may or may not be coincidence. When in doubt, put your trust
in zoo animals.

You're Love in the Time of Cholera!

by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Like Odysseus in a work of Homer, you demonstrate undying loyalty by
sleeping with as many people as you possibly can. But in your heart you never give
consent! This creates a strange quandary of what love really means to you. On the
one hand, you've loved the same person your whole life, but on the other, your actions
barely speak to this fact. Whatever you do, stick to bottled water. The other stuff
could get you killed.

Fascinating

Apparently I'm a Jurassic Park sort of guy. Bloomin' load of crap that is.




You're Jurassic Park!

by Michael Crichton

You combine all the elements of a mad scientist, a brash philosopher,
a humble researcher, and a money-hungry attracter of tourists. With all these features,
you could build something monumental or get chased around by your own demons. Probably
both, in fact. A movie based on your life would make millions, and spawn at least two
sequels thatwouldn't be very good. Be very careful around islands.

Got a Dremel?

Then you too can have a hole in the head. Here's a quote:
"The recent resurgence of interest in trepanation, largely due to websites on the internet"

Now is it just me or does any else think that sentence just proves the interweb is full of nutters?

Which Book Are You?

I'm Ulysses apparently. My results:





You're Ulysses!

by James Joyce

Most people are convinced that you don't make any sense, but compared to what else you could say, what you're saying now makes tons of sense. What people do understand about you is your vulgarity, which has convinced people that you are at once brilliant and repugnant. Meanwhile you are content to wander around aimlessly, taking in the sights and sounds of the city. What you see is vast, almost limitless, and brings you additional fame. When no one is looking, you dream of being a Greek folk hero.

It changed around about 1980 I think so yes it was before the war - choose one from the Falklands, Gulf 1 & 2, Afghanistan or Yugoslavia! We obviously like our wars in this country.



And not one to be picky(!) but it's Shields Road - i before e except after c blah blah :)



And are the things around the boys neck the forerunner of Parrish's coinage? Or have you been giving pearl necklaces to young boys again?

Come on son, lets go to JT Parrish!

Sanguine Penguin



I got sent this last week but couldn't get on to the site so didn't post it. Well here's another link to Bloody Pingu from JengaJam.com. It's Pingu with erm... added bloody goodness...

JT Parrish



We need an old timer's icon. I don't remember when it changed... was that b4 the war or after..?? ;)

Prize to the person who finds a "Sheilds Road when mmChronic used to prowl them streets" picture...!

Kids these days?

You young whippersnapper! Michael Parrish's indeed! A real old timer would recall it as JT Parrish. I bought my 1st (and 2nd) 48K ZX Spectrum there. Best part of it was the area just inside the front door (which is probably Netto's cheap antifreeze/vodka section now) with about 6 Atari VCSs setup for play.

One for ILuvNufc

Are you still having codec problems? If so you might want to look at the KL Codec Resource Site if you haven't seen it already.

Pay day on Friday!

And what better to spend those beans on than a LEGO Imperial Star Destroyer... a snip at £250!!

I had to fight for months to get my £7 lego landrover and boat from Michael Parrish's on Sheilds Road...

Bah! Kids these days don't know they're born....!



EDIT : I had one of these and I also just found Torture devices throughout history recreated from Lego! Can't find a decent "Old Lego sets" archive that has all the ones I used to have as a kid.. but I'll keep looking!

No wait - I've just thought of something! I've given up waiting for the answers to your footy challenge on Friday! w00t! I feel all pure and holy now.

The power of punctuation





Da Prez Bush would probably be a bit narked with semicolons at the moment if he knew what they were. It seems that an erroneous semicolon has thwarted attempts by conservative groups to stop San Francisco's gay wedding fest. Why would this bother Bush? Because he's a crackpot, crusading, christian fundamentalist who amongst other things is trying to ensure a gay couple can never get married presumably in order to prevent a Sodom and Gomorrah type disaster happening in the USA.

PocketSNES

Fancy playing SNES games on your GBA? Well now you can thanks to PocketSNES. Compatibility is limited so far but that will change. And whilst on the topic of GBAs I saw a review for a 1Gb flash cart with RTC yesterday - and it's available in the UK</drool>

Another cemetery link. Ever wondered where old logos go when they have been replaced in a multi-million pound rebranding exercise? They go to the Logo Cemetery.

Phoar! J-Lo in tasty shocker!


Theme for today : What have you given up for Lent?

I need some suggestions! Post to the usual address...

Railroad Tycoon 3

This game is not the Railroad Tycoon sim but is in fact a version of Pipemania with trains. Actually I vaguely remember a game like this on the C64 or Spectrum. Anyone remember the name of it? I think it may have been on one of the £1.99 labels like Firebird, Mastertronic or Codemasters if that helps.

Rate my Mr Whippy



Sincere apologies in advance for anyone likely to be upset (I was) by this rather offensive site. You have been warned. NSFW

edit: But for what it's worth this was my favourite.

Fussy defined

Hooray!! Fussy defined at UrbanDictionary. And hopefully by tomorrow morning you should be able to look up Bungers too.

I sense a defintion for dogscogs appearing soon and it won't be too complimentary.

More grammar - cos it annoys mmChronic

All you nancy boys obviously struggled with grammar taught under conventional methods. Here are a few lessons more in line with your orientation. NSFW

The Postmodernism Generator

I somehow doubt our little group will ever have need for this but should we one day be required to write some postmodernism bullshit then this page will do it. The text you see has been randomly generated - there's a link at the bottom of the page to generate some more. Anyone fancy submitting one of these articles to Living Marxism?

Ninja Mathematician



If you don't know your differential equations from your elbow watch out - YI is about. And if the site looks familiar it's because the design is based on the Ultimate Power ninja site.

E-mail scam hits MBNA customers

click for full sizeThe BBC is reporting an email scam aimed at MBNA customers. I received one yesterday but it got diverted into my spam bucket so I didn't see it until just now. It's very crude technically. It embeds a gif file (click thumbnail to the left for full size) which looks like a normal marketing HTMLised email (even down to the bad grammar!) which looks like it has a valid link in the standard blue, underlined text. The whole gif is in fact a clickthrough to the spoofed login site.



What concerns me most about this is how exactly have the phishers got the email addresses of MBNA customers? I smell a breach of the Data Protection Act. I'll give them a ring tomorrow and see what they say.

iPod muggings

Bung
Bungers
BkingKat
Grasshopper Unit
Grammar Kid obviously just loves winding people up to attack him - he wants an iPod. I'd read about this happening in America but just like every other fad it's come here too.

Threat Alert Jesus



We need a web enabled version of Threat Alert Jesus to see if it's worth visiting New Links today or whether it will be mostly bickering about grammar.

Book-A-Minute

Sister site to Movie-A-Minute, Book-A-Minute allows you to pretend you are way more widely read than you actually are.

Wor hoose

I can see wor hoose from here!
I don't know. I go to the dentist and come back, dribbling mouth all agog, anticipating dead bodies and everything. And I find you've all turned into peace loving hippies, practicing free love. pah. Your pints are all puffs.



Anyway the Sine link ILuvNufc posted earlier has a picture of wor hoose. That's ILuvNufc's and mine. We moved from that one about 20 years ago. I'll quickly point out that we aren't shirt lifting "life partners" but siblings. If you follow that row to the left for about 12 houses you'll find Chez Tweedy. Also on the same estate lived Jackie Lye of Brush Strokes fame. And Ant & Dec lived in our lockup with Jimmy Nail. probably.

Oops

Apologies to Grammar Kid and ILuvNufc.

Anyway <light blue touch paper> that mmChronic has been setting us up against each other from the start</stand well back>

Oooops!

Sorry dogs, I'll make sure I pay more attention in the future!!

And the winner is...



ILuvNufc wins by a technical knockout

Bloomin' eck!! Grammar Kid totally bottled it AND he credits mmChronic for all my efforts to get a scrap started!!!! It was me man. Dogs for fscks sake.

I'll tek yes aal on with one hand tied behind me back and blindfolded.

New Adobe product...

I've already got this so if it came down to a photoshop contest, I'd win anyway, by default! ;)

Ask, and ye shall receive!


ILuvNUFC was so polite.... I just had to oblige! There's no room for flame wars here!

tsk tsk mmChronic for encouraging things.... ;)

Soft

Not soft just taking time to consider my options and to see if my demands are met.See you's tomorrow for my revenge if the offending article is not removed.

ILuvNufc vs Grammar Kid


Whilst I'm on my Superhero theme.... I can't believe how soft ILuvNufc has been in responding to the defilement of his image. I was hoping for a monumental battle a bit like Batman vs Spiderman.

But take a close look at the grammatical style and punctuation of this article....Could it possibly be...?????

Johnny Storm is the Human Torch

Which reminds me of the Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer

Internet Police

ooh it's the internet police,you had better do what they say.

Good day to you all.I am representing the internet police dept. on behalf of ILuvNufc and i demand the removal of THAT picture posted by Grammar Kid.It is considered to be in poor taste and unless my demands are met this site will be charged with "displaying obscene images"
I hope never to have to deal with this offence again and trust that you will move it or the balanced shall be re-dressed.

I'm far more interested in this
can of worms

oops...




I seriously believe you have just signed your own death warrant! ;)

We are the spelling, grammar and punctuation Nazis...


Just as there is no excuse for incorrect spacing after a comma there is also no excuse for not ending a question with a question mark or a sentence with a full stop.

Ref : "Rents"

That's what the kids call them... I was merely pointing out the correct spelling. Pronunciation is down to dialect, which doesn't alter the spelling of an abbreviation. ;)

Come on then. I'll have the lot of ye ootside.



If I wanted to start a fight then I'd probably tell
ILuvNufc that having a bad temper is no excuse for not following a comma with a space.

Your wish is my command

as long as it only involves creating icons anyway!




There you go dogs, a handbag icon. Go on, start a fight - you know you want to. :)

Car Accidents

You know when you are out and see a road accident and the traffic slows down to look, potentially causing more crashes? Well here's the solution - Car Accident Pictures - pictures and reports from people involved in accidents.

Handbags

Darn it. I want a handbags icon made available now! Posted my defintion of fussy on Urban Dictionary but it takes 24 hours to register so we'll have to wait until tomorrow to see who I've upset.

In the meantime I do like Urban's suggestions. Ho ho.

Handbags!!! Hoorah! MmChronic has joined in too!! Hoorah!!!

ooh whiny :)

Handbags at 50 paces!Did you get out of bed the wrong side this morning, ILuvNufc? :)



I feel I have to correct your pronunciation in turn. It's not parents or parints - it's ma/da or mutha/fatha :)

Fussy

Is this you,Bung or is it some other sadistic teacher type

OMG.Someone is feeling fussy today.I have always said rints cos where i come from the end of the word parents sounds like that.Your definition of the word may be true in your case,i dont know,do you still live in Mummy's and Daddy's house?
OK? bung,bungers,ass-hopper or whatever your name is today.

Credit where credit's due

It wasn't me who posted the Celeb Cemetery - it was ILuvNufc!

Mario World Overrun

Mario World Overrun is sort of like Missile Command with added Mario goodness. You have to defend the castle against enemies, earning coins (what else in a Mario game?) to buy better weapons and gun turrets. Presumably there is a level later on where you have to defend against ninja Nintendo lawyers citing IP infringements.

Sympathy vote?

Matthew Kelly got the Best Actor Award at the Larry's. I have only ever seen him 'acting' in one thing and that was a godawful series where he is reunited with his long lost son and all the hilarious(?) situations that ensue. So either he has improved drastically as an actor or he has garnered lots of luvvie support for his 'ordeal' last year. Of course this is at the same awards ceremony that the Jerry Springer musical won 4 awards - my gast is well and truly flabbered.

RoboSapien


As it say on the tin "For all your world domination needs". Demo modes - Disco dance, Rude behavior, and Kung Fu kata. Everything you'd ever need really.

The goals?




  1. Beckhams' so called 'wonder goal' - even though Rob Lee scored a much better one like that that was disallowed as one of the opposing players was offside against us. So much for fscking advantage! I think it may even have been against the same keeper (Neil 'spazzy' Sullivan?) as this one.

  2. Owen vs Argentina?

  3. Some cheating, Argentinian, coke snorting, fat dwarf - against England. Not with his hand this time.

  4. ???

  5. Gazza's wonderful 'take the piss out of the big ginger lump Colin Hendry' move againt Scotchland in 1996. Sheer class. Was that the one celebrated with the dentists chair?

The Political Graveyard is a website which tells you "where the dead politicians are buried". Unfortunately it features only American politicians so if you want to dance on Evil Maggie's grave when she finally shuffles off this mortal coil you'll have to find it yourself. Should be easy - just join the queue from the North East.

Curry KitKat?

Nestle are reported to be planning a curry KitKat in a bid to combat falling sales.



Perhaps they might have more success if they reverted to the original Rowntrees recipe? Since they bought Rowntrees the chocolate used has definitely changed for the worse. I remember reading somewhere that they changed it for reasons of longer shelf life rather than taste. I do know I no longer eat Kit Kats, Toffee Crisps and other ex-Rowntree chocolate bars because they taste nothing like they used to.



In addition to remedying the plastic chocolate situation Nestle could raise sales across all of their products by ending their participation in the killing of babies.

Two new icons from Bungers. Normally I wouldn't showcase the new icons like this but I didn't want to be incorrectly blamed for credited with such magnificent pieces.

More iPod woes

Oh dear. First surprise for iPod owners was that the battery could die within 18 months and it cost £90 to replace - though I hear the price may have come down a bit since that original revelation. But now a report claims that should you choose to recharge your shiny iPod through your shiny Mac FireWire port it could just drain it instead. Bummer.

See if your pass is valid...

By my calculations that makes me 64% likely to go to heaven, and hopefully I'm not off to hell!

I think my soul was only worth £4000 or something, but I can't remember where that test was. But on the whole things are looking up for me!! Cheers Big Man!

Monkey Head



No, it's not Peter Reid (with his fscking monkeys heid) but another Monkey Head.

More books

BookCrossing is a place where you can read reviews of books. So what's so good about that?



What sets this apart is that people all around the world can register a book with them, get an ID for it and dump it for someone to find. The finder (in theory at least) gets the book, sees the BookCrossing info, and posts back to the site and then completes the cycle by re-releasing into the wild. There was even a book released 2 days ago in Newcastle! Unsurprisingly (considering the lack of books, people that can read and electricity for net connections) there are none in sundlind.

Gripe of the day

Anyone else noticed that a basket of Satsumas from the local supermarket goes off too quickly these days

I remember the good old days when they lasted longer than two days. This article explains it all - apparently they gas the poor defenseless fruit to make them ripen unnaturally. The fecking gm mutificating b******s.

The only bit of the Brit Awards I saw was when Justin was doing some speaking bit and sounding very gay and when JungleKerry had some sort of spunk assisted hairstyle (post a pic of this if you find one!) a la Mary. And that was way more than I actually wanted to see.



And now for some links with some actual content rather than an "site being upgraded" message (WTF is that about? Next time perhaps they could have the site ready to display the results. Novel idea I know but worth a go!) - general article, full list of winners and some pictures.

Follow up: The Brit Awards

More to come on this subject later, but here is another track from Jamie Cullen covering Frontin'. It's just been on Radio One, and it's good.

The Brit awards...



Seeing as I'm now Director General of the Beeb, I feel I am now qualified to pass my judgement on last night's Brit Awards.

    Good Stuff:
  • Beyonce's big ol' booty
  • Justin had a nice suit on
  • Cat Deely (yum yum)
  • Jamie Cullen put on a good turn
    Bad stuff:
  • The sound quality - WTF??? More on this later...

S&N have closed a brewery after all - just not ours.



More importantly the BBC seem to be reporting on lots of asthma surveys this morning (1, 2, 3). Now at least 2 of these stories are reporting on a survey by Gina and the third is based on data provided by an "EC survey" which may or may not have been carried out by Gina (hard to tell as the BBC omit their source totally).



So is it such a slow news day that the BBC have to publish at least 3 different articles interpreting the same set of figures? Or is it that they can no longer cope without Greg Dyke? We should be told.

This morning's "New Links Investigates"...

Follow on from all the kerfuffle with S&N, lets have an investigation into the Beer Price Hike Threat To Pubs. With pints going up by 10p per pint yesterday, lets look at the real cost of beer, and how we, the consumers, are being screwed over again... over to you, Anne Robinson.

ic Newcastle - What's brewing?

Evening Chronicle are reporting that the Newcastle Brown story is rubbish. It would be nice if S&N applied for regional status to confirm this.

Follow up: Regional Food

Accordng to this

Regional food (sometimes called locality food) is food produced within a particular geographical area (whether administrative region, county, town or other appellation) and is marketed as coming from that area. However, it may be sold within or outside that area. Regional food is perceived to have a distinctive quality because of the area in or the method by which it is produced.

So I think Newcastle Brown definitely falls in that definition. It's produced in the region, sold around the world with the word 'Newcastle' and the silhouette of part of Newcastle's skyline prominent on labelling - ffs even the web address is newcastlebrown.com! And Newcastle Brown is nothing if not distinctive.



Unfortunately it seems only producers or food associations can register their products and Newcastle Brown ale at this time doesn't seem to be registered. So it looks like they can make it on Mars if they wish. :/

Beagle may lie under Essex mud...

Awwww.. shizzle... that's the wrong Beagle. I thought old Colin had maybe been looking in the wrong direction. Doh!

More Newcastle based alchohol related shenanigans


After the Balmbra's story last week we now seemingly have confirmation of S&N's brewery in Newcastle being shut down. This was rumoured a few weeks ago in the (mm?)Chronicle but was played down by S&N suits.



Worst of all is the revelation that Newcy Brown would be 'outsourced' somewhere else. What happened to the EU ruling on regional products e.g. Champagne, Parma ham etc etc only being produced in the region they are named after? Maybe S&N haven't registered it? Can someone other than the manufacturer register it? Must investigate further.

The evidence:

  1. It's about Thundercats (an 80's cartoon)

  2. The graphics look to be of a similar standard

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury I present Bkingkat's ThunderCats page. I rest my case.

My favourite cartoon of the 80's after Thundercats was this one. AICMFP!

The animal thing was called Kuma, and we had a hamster named after it.

BBC reporting on false reporting instead of erm.. false reporting

The New Statesman made up a story about Welsh Nazis that are the descendants of Hitler's secret love child who was delivered to Wales by a V2 rocket shortly before the fall of the Third Reich and raised by Dai the Fascist in secrecy. Which may be false reporting.

Follow up: Music

That cover sounds like Marvin Gaye to start with (sounds like beginning of What's Going On), meanders via George Best (definite hiccup at 2:05) and climaxes in a Jacko crushed nads style. Of course the fact he announces that it is a cover of Thing Called Love by the Darkness in a file called lemar_love_nov03.ram means I may be able to deduce the answer - Lemar and a cover of Thing Called Love. ICMFP.



Continuing the quizzing - what was the cartoon in the 80s (maybe early 90's) with a racing team that did secret agent stuff? And I'll discount M.A.S.K. before you start. I don't actually know the answer to this - for some reason I thought of it this morning and can't remember what it was called.



ps Just to reinforce dogs' opinion of my crap taste in music - I quite like the Darkness.

Comment : Aaaaarrr....

I know someone, who, since he started "listening to legitimatly requisitioned mp3 files that have been downloaded from the intraweb" has actually started buying Albums again. This person hadn't bought any music for years (cause he couldn't be arsed, and didn't think there wuz anything worth listening too) "auditioned" some albums and then went out and bought them. See you don't get the track listings, and the booklet, and all that shizzle, and you never will... wake up RIAA , play to your strenghts and stop moaning. Stop putting out so much $hit, people will never pay for kak anyway... make your bed, you lie in it... blah blah...

BBC don't understand Red Book


The BBC had a piece on modern CDs not playing on all CD players especially car CD players. The Volvo PR head pointed out all their CD players were compliant with Red Book as agreed between all interested parties. The music industry guy lied and said standards for audio CD had moved on since Red Book specs were published. Oh really? Red Book has not changed - the music industry are just using all sorts of tricks to ensure the CD you just bought can't be played where you want to.



If anything fiddling with the CD like this can only encourage piracy. Your choice:

  1. Pay £12 or so for a CD you may or may not be able to play on all your CD players - just looking around this room I see 10 different devices capable of playing audio CDs. What gives the music company the right to dictate on which of these devices I play my copy of a CD?

  2. Download the album for free with the protection ripped off and the ability to be played anywhere.


Decisions, decisions. Personally I will NEVER buy a protected audio CD. I want the guarantee of knowing that it will work if I want to play it in my walkman or the car or in the DVD player or wherever.

Microsoft probes Windows code leak
