My latest headache

About 3 weeks ago I bought a shiny new laptop. Unfortunatley the bloody OS - Vista Home has taken the shine out of it and has reduced the machine to a black body. My pen-tablet works only on the desktop & refuses to work in any other program. Try and avoid this shitty OS till time & program compatibility allows.

Awesome!

Finally somebody does visual justice to the Goldfrapp song - 'Lovely Head'.

Dexter Wansel - Life on Mars



Dexter Wansel was session's keyboardist, who in 1976, released a solo album titled 'Life on Mars'. An instrumental tour de force in space age funk (with a few tracks featuring vocals). An album that has to be experienced in full stereophonic glory. For a 70's album I believe it had some pioneering synthesizer effects and sounds. If you like the band Jamiroquai, you need to listen to this. The clip below features the title track. Crank up the volume please!

Website

I found a beautiful website while scanning my daily feeds. Its the site for an upcoming videogame titled 'Edge of Twilight'. What makes this site great is the short loading time even though its built using flash. No unwanted mouse-over noises. Overall colour scheme is subdued and your attention is drawn to the type by blue luminescent broken and weathered egg like object at centre of the bottom third of the screen. My only gripe is the scroll bar, its too narrow to be easily located by the mouse pointer. When you drag the slider in the scroll bar, the text does not scroll smoothly.

The site gives a brief lowdown on what the gameplay and story is like. Some wonderful concept art is also uploaded. The main character Lex isn't all that appealing.

I've Had It!

In the words of late Hunter S. Thompson they/it must be 'fucked, broken and driven across the land'.
