The Beatles are on iTunes! Buy Beatles Music in 2 easy steps!

Finally after years of lawsuits and legal wrangling Apple Computer Inc and the company that owns the rights to The Beatles music, Apple Corps have come to an agreement to bring the entire Beatles music library to the iTunes music store. Sure they were available on other online places like Amazon but iTunes has 90% of the online music market so this is actually quite a big deal. This is particularly exciting for Beatles fans as the entire music collection was essentially re-recorded (re-mastered) on September 9, 2009. I have both some older mp3 and newer re-mastered recording and you can actually hear the difference.

If you run down to your local Apple store you'll find out that Steve charges the pricly sum of $190 to fix the little bugger; hardly worth it given the second hand value of the device is around the same amount!!

Die Antwoord - South African Rap - buy songs here!

I'm putting this little page together for an Afrikaans rap outfit called "Die Antwoord". In english the bands name means "The Answer". I first came across them in a video interview on Boing Boing. Can't say I'm a big rap fan but there is something so real about these guys - they are incredible. The lead singer Ninza could be Morrisseys younger brother, the girl Yo-Landi in the band looks like she's 14 years old and progeria sufferer Leon Botha presence in the video makes the entire performance unlike anything I've ever seen.

Quickfit Fitness Studio Boulder - Loose 4 inches in 1 hour - Yikes!!

Quickfit / Quick fit fitness Studio you are officially on my shit list. On Tue Jan 24th an agent of yours was seen flyering cars in the Ideal Market / Vics Parking lot on Broadway. Ok, so you gotta get your message out somehow and even though I'm sure this is illegal as technically the parking lots in question are private property I am somewhat sympathetic to your cause. 

But when I read the glossy full color flyer I was flabbergasted !! The leaflet proclaimed that they can help me loose 1-4 inches in less than an hour - sweet Jesus, what a crock of utter shite!!
