Via Annie comes this, a word cloud of this post from last Tuesday.

Make your own. All you need is some text and about 3 minutes. Loads of nice fontage and colours available too.

Seven Songs

Tom has tagged me with this really interesting meme.

“List seven songs you’re into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now, shaping your spring.”

Interesting. Mostly because I don't listen to "songs" or "tunes", as such. I mostly have my iPod on in the car, playing everything I have on it on shuffle, or I play an album (any album) from start to finish, and then play another one. I listen to music in a fairly random pattern, so it doesn't really "shape" anything, apart from my eardrums. So, here's seven songs (or tunes) that I've randomly listened to recently, and I like.

"The Lark" by Moving Hearts. This is an epic tune. It's actually a set of dance tunes (as in "Irish" dance), linked together in amazing ways. It starts off slowly, and moved quite rapidly into ass-kicking, jumping about territory. One of my favourite tunes ever, if not my favourite. I couldn't find a YouTube video, probably because it's 13 minutes long. There's plenty of other Moving Hearts stuff there though.

"Group Four" by Massive Attack. Again, epic. Starts off crunchy, goes smooth, and then gets very crunchy again. Not something you can dance to though. Ideally listened to by yourself, at full volume, in a darkened room.

"Inner Universe" by Origa. This is the opening theme from Ghost In The Shell: Standalone Complex, and it's amazing. I have no idea what the Japanese chick is singing about, but it's cool. Gets really thumping at several stages too.

"Tell Me" by the Stone Roses. This was the 'Roses forst single, a double-A side along with "So Young". It's probably my favourite song of theirs, after "I Am The Resurrection". Very raw. I love it.

"Paradise City" by Guns & Roses. This song, for me, means summer. It's designed to be played at maximum volume to a crowd of thousands, preferably on a beach, in 30°+ heat. So not so much shaping my spring, as announcing my summer, with a bang.

"15 Stepz" by Amplive (ok, not really by Amplive, but by Radiohead, remixed by Amplive). This is great, in my opinion. If you're one of those people who thinks Radiohead are "too god" to be remixed, or that remixing their stuff is like, sacrilege, screw you. Besides, Radiohead thought this remix was good enough that they allowed it to be released without suing anyone. Plus, the video is pretty good, if a trifle weird.

"Reptilia" by The Strokes. The Strokes Best Song Ever. Definitely one for listening to while driving at great speed (or, alternatively, depending on your point of view, to be avoided at all costs while driving). Awesome.

My alternative "seven songs" list consists entirely of Tenacious D, picked at random. I think I bogged the one most people would want to read (apart from Andy). :-)

501I was going to post today about this being the 500th post on the LWT, but beat me to it with my daily links for today. Oh well!

Anyhoo, we're 500. Or 501 even. Hooray! Well done me. And Babs too, of course. And Becca, but we haven't heard from her in a while. Probably too busy with the babby.

I meant to post ages ago about the re-design, which managed to happen without me mentioning it at all. A huge, HUGE thanks to Davy McDonald (blog/Twitter) for helping me with the banner/masthead and the favicon. He even made me a Life Without Toast wallpaper for my iPod Touch, without me even asking. He's the man in so many ways, and even designed several different mastheads, and revised my chosen one a few times too. And all for the promise of a pint (the beer must be shite in Lisburn!). The dude is legend. If anyone out there is looking for something that needs to be designed in a kick-ass fashion, he's your man. Although you'll probably have to pay him with more than the promise of an alcoholic beverage. He's worth it though.

Anyhoo (again)... Hooray! 501, eh? I also recently passed the 3,000 Tweets mark on Twitter, but I completely missed it until I was at the 3,027 mark, and by that stage there wasn't much point. And besides that, Alexia had passed the 10,000 mark a few days previous (and is now rapidly approaching 11k).

Interesting Juxtaposition

While browsing the Huffington Post this morning, I came across an interesting juxtaposition of two Google ads:


Google must be using a HECK of an algorithm to put those two together.
