hottest news, anywhere!

well last night the niffer and i caught bjork's new song, oceania, on muchmusic and we were both blown away by it. what an amazing chorus. truth be told. i've been looking for the track in acquisition (which mac users should be using instead of that limewire tripe - though both connect to the limewire newtwork to do their jobs). it's not even in the itunes music store yet. boo-urns. if you get the chance, check out that track. the video is pretty brillant as well. reminds me lots of jens karlsson's work that i was coincidentally looking at yesterday.

hit up chapters and futureshop last night while my loverly wife hit up homesense last night. futureshop has griffin itrips for $59. i think the plan is to pick one up this weekend. its a great way to connect the ipod to the car stereo so we don't need to take cds with us anymore in the car. just a quick grab of the ipod on the way out the door and we're set.

<geek>
for those not in the know, the griffin itrip plugs into the top of an ipod and allows you to broadcast your playlist (or whatever) to a radio up to 30 feet away. the radio needs to be tuned to an fm station.

chapters wasn't exciting. grabbed a few mac magazines (which are really all the same..), and a book called ipod secrets, then hunkered down into a wooden armchair (they used to be plush, but i guess too many people were sitting in them for too long). and started to read while i waited for the newly-housey-rechaged niffer to come back from her decor-hunt. she, like me, found nothing to whet her appetite.

and i finally unwrapped my powerblock from the ipod last night too to do some charging sans-computer.

flash things: last night before bed (and after my run), i hit up flash to play more with the drawing api and noodle around there. what i was playing with will be added to the orig. HellaBoss site when i get it fully devd.

where is that oceania track? last night i found a copy of it in .wav format on acquisition, but today it's vanished. figure i can get the track, import it to itunes and convert it to aac when i'm done. worry thyself not, icelandic princess - i'll buy medula when it comes out here, fo' sho' (50 cent in background now, sorry...).

<update>
you can go to bjork's web site and listen to the oceana track via a custom quicktime player she's there. seems to only be a short sample, however. you can watch the video tho.

Heya Mat,

I've got the entire bjork album @ 192kbps if you want it to tie ya over till it comes out on Tues...I'll try and catch ya on ichat tomorrow.

Chris from Guelph.

BTW...the rest of the album is pretty stellar too, really really unique, which isnt suprising coming from bjork. Probably her "riskiest" album to date, but also one of the coolest...
