I finished implementing my next experiment in ePrime, and am reminded how awful it is. Ouch. At least it's substantially complete and I can get back to the analysis stream and other fun bits.
I may have mentioned a few months ago that in Chongqing, there's a house that stood in the middle of land being demolished for a mall, and the owners refused to move out. Recently, that house was knocked down by government authorities. I'm bothered by the attitude of both sides on the matter - that the homeowner would make exorbitant demands on replacement space or money, and that homes are easily destroyed for business interests. C'est la vie, I guess.
For those of us who are amused at Bill O'Reilly looking stupid, I present:NewsHounds, with the funny tagline, "We watch FOX so you don't have to". I stumbled across this at roughly the same time I found the latter of the above.
I'm trying to teach myself the "creepy part" in the middle of Raymond Scott's "Powerhouse" on accordion. I'm also trying to find interesting covers of that section - I found "Don Bryon"'s jazzy interpretation (which is quite good), and They Might Be Giants covers just the creepy part halfway through "Rhythm Section Want Ad". Anyone else know of good covers/interpretations?
