Atacama

Brodie made me do it

Quick Six: As double dog dared by nfotxn

  1. Architecture in Helsinki - Imaginary Ordinary
    Fingers Crossed

    Well, why not, really? Music seems the hardest to write when it's either stylistically very complex, or deceivingly honest, direct, and unadorned.

    Listen to this with your honey, outside, on the lawn, amongst the flowers.

    theaihkids are on tour now, by the way.

     
  2. End. - Go
    Percussions

    You know, this could well have been the best album of 2004. It's so good, if we ever went to Amoeba together, I'd probably buy it and accidentally leave it in your car. Clever, fun, and breezy. There's a free track from Percussions here.

     
  3. Bodenständig 2000 - Longjohn
    Maxi German Rave Blast Hits 3

    Just after sundown, as you're putting on something slinky, you should be listening to this in the background. Shortly after you catch yourself in the mirror and think damn, I'm hawt!, the silly part will kick in, you'll bust into grins, and you know what? It's the smile that makes you sexy.

     
  4. General Patton vs. The X-Ecutioners - L.O.L. - ¡Loser on Line! (Hate the Player, Hate the Game)
    General Patton vs. The X-Ecutioners

    If you're reading this blog instead of going for a walk on a beautiful day like today, you so totally qualify.

     
  5. Atom™ - Hallo, wie geht es dir?
    iMIX miniLP

    What the world needs now is intentionally dull, uninspired cover versions of Latin standards, right? Totally unnecessary, but amusing nonetheless.

     
  6. Venetian Snares - Hiszékeny
    Rossz Csillag Alatt Született

    Something's gone severely wrong here - for once, there are no trickily programmed snares in impossible time signatures - but it's beautiful.

    We could all use more beauty in our lives.


That's right - no more ugly HTML table quizzes! It'd be of course very cool if you felt like posting your own six... especially yins:

Can it be true?

APPLE is expected to announce Monday that it will begin shifting its Macintosh computer line next year to Intel chips, people familiar with the situation said. 5:04 p.m., Wall Street Journal


Huh. If this is in fact true, I guess this means OPENSTEP/Mach is going back to the PC after nearly eight years' absence? Weird.
