Everything and Nothing / Article on deluxe versions of releases

Thought was this kind of an interesting article on the "deluxe version" phenomenon, which seems to work best for bands with a large and rabid fan base:


Everything and Nothing / Wordle

Discovered this fun web app from a link on Chris Herbert's MySpace page.  It takes takes text and reconfigures it an interesting visual manner.  Endless hours of fun...


Some of you may remember that I had problems several months ago in getting a CD I had ordered on eBay from Small Voices.  The CD finally arrived 2 months after I ordered it, but only after I filed a dispute with PayPal.

Unfortunately, it appears that history has repeated itself.  This time I ordered an extremely limited Fabio Orsi CD from an Italian seller on eBay who only identified itself/himself as "vuoi_la_musica_la_musica_ti_daremo!"  Only after I purchased the CD was the seller identified as being from A Silent Place.  Almost two months have passed and, once again, I have forced to file another dispute with PayPal.  Here is a link to this seller eBay feedback:!&&ftab=FeedbackAsSeller&sspagename=VIP:feedback:2:us&iid=290243179992

It appears that most if not all of the negative comments came in the past month, and, not coincidentally, the seller's eBay store appears to have closed up shop.  I suspect that this seller has reopened another eBay store under a different name, so beware if you are purchasing ambient CDs from an unknown Italian seller.  This a unique form of fraud I have never seen before.


Everything and Nothing / TED Conference video online
« on: February 20, 2008, 11:32:46 PM »
I recently started using the video feature of my video iPod and was pleased to discover that the TED conference has posted nearly 200 of its talks online for download.  The quality is wildly variable, but I've enjoyed most of what I've heard/seen so far.  Just finished listening to Barry Schwartz's talk about the "paradox of choice," which I thought was spot on.  Up next:  Malcolm Gladwell and Michael Pollan.  The link is here:


In the spirit of jkn's recent goodies, I've added two new mp3s to my audio page.  One piece is an experimental remix I did in October for Barry Cleveland.  The other is an improv I did on Christmas day with the Wavestation I just acquired from Loren.  Great machine!

The audio page is here:
