Another Excellent Soundtrack

Oh by the way, I got “The Constant Gardener” soundtrack a little while ago and the longer I listen to it, the more I am loving (yes I know, this is improper grammar but who cares?) it. Some of the tracks are really sad (not in a bad way) when you listen to the music…

Moving without Murphy’s Law

I am about to move my website to a new server. No big deal expect for my past posts on this blog. The plan is to dump all the posts to a script then run the script on the new server. Hopefully I will not lose any data, but you know how it goes… sometimes…

Oy! Dillinja!

On the weekly Fabio & Grooverider Drum & Bass show this past Friday Grooverider played a new killa track, “Oy” by Dillinja. Right now I think it’s a white label and I don’t know when or on what label it will be released but hopefully it will be soon. If you want to listen to…

Amazon’s Competitive Advantage

Last Friday, I was looking at one of the books I needed to buy for my Price Theory class. As usual, the first thing I did was to logon to Amazon.com to find out the price of the book and see if there are any good used copies. I have been able to buy even…

Sine Tempus (Metalheadz 2006)

Word on the street is getting louder and louder! Goldie’s highly anticipated album, Sine Tempus (Without Time) is coming out this year, probably before summer. I think there is a DVD too and I’ll confirm in due time… I have heard a couple of tracks here and there, and I think this album is going…

Technorati Search Temporarily Down

I took this screenshot of Technorati’s blog search results about 8 hours ago. I had just posted my previous post then I went to manually ping the Technorati servers. That went fine. I was interested in figuring out how long it would take between pining Technorati and my latest post actually showing up on the…

Drum&BassArena Classics by Goldie

Drum&BassArena, that website for all things Drum and Bass puts out its latest release titled “Drum&BassArena: The Classics Mixed by Goldie”. This is a 41 track, double album compilation of classic drum and bass killas that have ruled the nation. I sampled the tracks, a number of them I already own and some that I…

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. As an African living in the US, I often reflect on how the 60’s and people like MLK changed the direction of America during the Civil Rights Movement. If people had sat back and continued with the status quo, I probably would never have been interesting in coming…

Nostalgic for Nairobi

This website’s East Africa Kenya and Uganda 50 Years Ago pages makes me really nostalgic for my home country Kenya. I am looking forward to visiting later this year after a seven year absence. I realize though, things have changed since I last was in the country, some changes for the worse, but also some…

Great Radio Commercials, DQ Fung Fu

Aaahh… the power of the internet! I heard this ad on the radio a couple of months back and I think its one of the funniest radio commercials. It is a commercial for Dairy Queen’s grilled mushroom burger; however it is acted out in a form similar to the old Hong Kong martial art movies…

On the Lighter Side, Great Vietnamese Artists & Art

Even though I am back in class with tons of readings assignments, homework and projects, I feel much more relaxed now that the sewer thing is just about done. I don’t know what the bill is going to look like, I know it’ll be huge… but I guess that’s the way it goes… In the…
