My wife called me out to baclony to look at this spontaneous electric car parade with fireworks.
Love visiting the country here. Thisis oneof many reasons.
Very knocked out by what Trent and NIN are doing and digging the fine music as well. So I thought hey why not share the love and keep good energy and will flowing around the digital atmosphere. Theme music by Moshang and yes it is awesome and chilling. Mentioned my new site and project Big In Asia. Show some love to Trent and friends by downloading from him and getting friends to do the same.
I must confess, I'm not an old NIN fan boy, but I am more and more impressed by Trent Reznor. His musical ability is solid, but I'm even more impressed by his cultivating and responding to his followers and grasp of the Net culture whereas so many from the music business are completely clueless on that score. The new work is not the best I've heard by them, but I'd rate it 7.5* out of 10*. Like I said today to a NIN-loving friend I'd rather have a 7-8 NIN effort than a 9 or 10 of many other people. Trent's explanation for the free release is that he wants to thank the Net for helping him make 1.6 million smackers on the last go. Good for him. Nice to know that with ingenuity, hard work and sensitivity to one's market(in this case:listener's) people can actually make real money on the internet and also have the exchange happen quickly and directly between marketer and market.
Chilli CookOff bands during the day and MJ Klein at BBQ during the evening. All in all a good day of fun, food, music and conversation.
Some Australian jewelry company: Re:vision is making pieces out of recycled camera parts! Kudos for recycling and for using such cool objects to make jewelry from. I can think of many photographer friends that would want something from their collection.
Out for a spin with Kevin, my 14 year old son on recent Tomb Sweeping Day break. We drove into the huge Science Park that emerged out of the cane fields on a hill in Daya. Kevin operated the Xacti from the back of our 90cc scooter. Fun stuff!
