FWIW, the new Metallica album, Death Magnetic, was released today.  What I have listened to so far is a definite throw back to their early (pre-Black Album) work.

EDIT: HA HA THIS IS ME

For some reason I'm really craving the Salsa beat in the Kylie Minogue version of "Santa Baby."

Just bought this on CD:



I owned an LP of it years ago with this cover (which I kinda prefer):



...but I'd forgotten what a funny, chaotic noisefest the album is.

I'm not sure why, but I laughed until tears were rolling down my face to this one.

After salsa dancing with the missus, I have to ask: is there a better salsa song than Smooth, by Santana? I mean seriously. Is there anything better.

As a red blooded Colombian I'd have to answer that 'Smooth' (and I am a Carlos fan) is to salsa as Velveeta is to actual cheese. Not that Salsa is cheese. Though you can put cheese in salsa . . . what was I chattering about?

There's a Salsa version of Santa Baby, but for the life of me I can't find out who it's by. Anybody know?

I listen to stuff like that. Without laughing.

I highly recommend Nasum, they were great.

It isn't salsa, but there is nothing more smooth than this.

Now spinning: Ella Sings Gershwin.

Sitting one early fall evening in '98 in the patio of a coffee house on Fourth and Coolidge in Las Vegas, the barista, a thin young man who played stand up bass in what was kindly described as a spaghetti-western band, legendary for its hour-long tune-ups, looked up at the speakers as Ella sang 'But Not For Me,' and said, [/I]That's[I]the perfect record, Ella Sings the Gershwin Songbook." That's the truth.

Steve, now that you're burned out on Cake, you should check these guys out.

Question to the floor:  Is Arden a big homo or the biggest homo?

Discuss.

What, you'd rather I'd be the littlest one? That's Louis's job.

Just unsuspended the Netflix. Watched 21 tonight. Eh. It was okay. Not good, not bad.

criticism from a geek point of view: if the whole movie's about card counting, shouldn't you at least explain a very basic little bit about how to count cards? If your characters are saying the table's +12 or the table's gone "down seven in the last few minutes" if you don't tell me what that means I'm just going to be irritated.

criticism from a normal point of view: I have a hard time liking movies if I don't like any of the characters. Kevin Spacey was a jerk and the lead actor was a douchebag. The humanizing friends were poorly developed and the romantic interest was poorly developed.

sometime in the next few hours I intend to watch Forgetting Sarah Marshall and The Bank Job. You don't have to be as gay as Arden to appreciate some Jason Statham.

For the past few years I haven't enjoyed any comedies. 'Waiting' was supposedly funny, I wasn't amused. 'Superbad' was supposedly funny, I wasn't amused. I wondered if I was just in a bad mood or something and wasn't appreciating comedy. I just learned that I was wrong. It wasn't me, it was the writing. I just saw 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall', and it was hysterical. I rewound it like a dozen times. It was hilarious. The writing was really good. Almost Idiocracy-level funny. I highly recommend it. The Paul Rudd line about lemons is going to be stuck in my head for Years.

Just google for the album cover if you're reticent at all.

Neko Case is god.  Furnace Room Lullaby is one of my favorite albums EVAR.

I'm not sure that Neko is god, but she sure is plugged into something powerful. Just listening to Maybe Sparrow right now...

Mostly a bunch of podcasts these days.

Skeptics' Guide, a must
Amateur Scientist, dick jokes and sciency news
Quackcast, well researched handling of all things quackery
The math factor, puzzely mathy goodness
Math mutation
Travels in a mathematical world, varying quality
365 days of astronomy, very varying quality

Anything I should add?

I've liked Neko Case ever since I heard her singing "Stay A Little Longer" on the Pine Valley Cosmonauts tribute to The Majesty of Bob Wills.  She has a powerful set of pipes and she knows how to use them.  I will probably be insulted by 'Ras for saying this, of her albums, I prefer The Virginian to Furnace Room Lullaby, with Blacklisted in a close third.

I don't know, maybe because that flamer Chatfield isn't around and you need to bleed off some of the anger resident in your cold, black, atheistic, materialistic heart before you commit some act against the objective moral code?
