This is the best song I have listened to all year. And it’s not just because “all year” entails less than 3 hours, but because _it is that good._ I don’t mean to be judgemental, but if you don’t agree with me, you suck.

Here it is: a montage of completely unrelated creative commons photos on flickr accompanied by a song describing the photos (by “Jonathan Coulton”:, whose “Bills Bills Bills”:,%20Bills,%20Bills.mp3 cover is funny too…er, I think) Dammit, why didn’t I think of that? Oh yeah, cos…I wouldn’t. I just sit here all day. I’m glad there are funny people out there, as it makes the transition to 2006, aka “a year closer to death”, more enjoyable. [“link”:]

“NEVER MIND THE BLOCKS t-shirt”: Sex Pistols + Tetris…but of course. I thought it was funny. [“link”:]

“Coldplay’s new album has usage guidelines”: Jeebus. Do people read those things? [“link”:]

“CultureBully’s 10 Favorite Mash-Ups 2005”: Oo, another atypical end of the year list. I never actively search out mash ups so…um. Mrrh? [“link”:]

“Every #1 song ever to appear on Billboard Top 100 squashed into one long song “: This song harnesses the power of…time-lapse phonography! Yeah! Okay. I don’t know what that is either.

bq. The 857 songs used to make the piece are analyzed digitally and a spectral average is then derived from the entire song. Just as a long camera exposure will fuse motion into a single image, spectral averaging allows us to look at the average sonority of a piece of music, however long, giving a sort of average timbre of a piece.

Etc. It sounds kinda cool, like being underwater…hopefully not because you’re drowning. [“link”:]
