Logitech Z2200

It's time to sing 'Happy Birthday Santosh' haha! I finally got a set of speakers I can really talk about. I have been waiting for this day for ever since I got to know of hi-fi stereo sound. It's a 2.1 speaker system certified by THX. This is the culmination of tremendous patience!

A review [extremetech.com] of the Z2200 2.1 speaker system!

The speakers available here [Amazon.com] for $54.94 after rebates. On the page you will also find reviews and the product description, so I will avoid repeating it.

Only trouble is:
1. I don't have my original compact disc's on me anymore, especially Pink Floyd
2. My sound card is a run of the mill card, came with my laptop and does not support the 2.1 system

Praful

Received Praful’s – One day deep from Amazon.com yesterday. His compositions are inspired by world music, including flute and tabla from India. overall, the music is genuine and refreshing. I’m not sure of the genre, but it has been described as Jazz, World Music, Meditative, and Ambient.

I received the cue from the Karma Collection, a collection of unconventional artistes. The collection in turn was handed to me by a friend who’s Brother got him the album!!

The Yahoo Messenger

I have fallen for this application so totally! Thanks to Rishabh, I set up Yahoo Messenger 6.0 the other day. Initially, I thought to myself, this looks a lot like the MSN Messenger, hmmm! Then followed the part where I setup my avatar, I still remained unimpressed. I had not gained much yet. Things changed when I switched to Launchcast… I caught myself listening closely to “Feel Like Makin…” Bad Company, Led Zepp, Doobie Brothers, and I thought to myself – Music in your IM… its so simple and straightforward and yet ignored. MSN have had plenty of opportunities to do the same, but they probably thought Media player + Radio was good enough! Lesson: to make music accessible… do so through an app that is running 24/7! I think this feature will be generally liked!! I am so sold!

Tom Waits

While watching “Fight Club”, I remember a bar scene, where Tyler heads down to the basement with a bunch of other guys. They are getting ready to do their thing. There is music playing in the background to which everyone else is dancing. It’s a very fitting song for the particular moment.

The song “Goin’ out West”, Artist “Tom Waits”.
His Homepage!
Another Fansite!

No Doubt

In the Video for “It’s My Life” she kills of each band member one at a time 😉 however, this is not unusual, in an earlier Video, she pisses off all the other band members by hogging the limelight (and the cover of some famous magazine) I only vaguely recollect that Video… No Doubt however, I am starting to think, are on top of it all!

Poems everybody…

Breathe In The Air Lyrics
Pink Floyd
The Dark Side Of The Moon

Breathe, breathe in the air.
Don’t be afraid to care.
Leave but don’t leave me.
Look around and choose your own ground.

Long you live and high you fly
And smiles you’ll give and tears you’ll cry
And all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be.

Run, rabbit run.
Dig that hole, forget the sun,
And when at last the work is done
Don’t sit down it’s time to dig another one.

For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race towards an early grave.
