Synth Britannia is a BBC documentary about the Synthisizer and it’s introduction to pop music in the 70’s and 80’s. It includes interviews from several of my favorite musicians (including Vince Clarke – personal hero).

I’m at the Seattle International Airport waiting for my flight to leave for Amsterdam. I’ve managed to find some free wifi (which is always nice) and while surfing the net I came across this video for a remix of the Radiohead song Nude. (video by James Houston).

“Somehow, this cat managed to tackle the nearly impossible task of remixing Radiohead’s Nude without defacing it entirely (read: merging bits and pieces of the tune into a 4/4 arrangement and calling it a day). Instead, he utilized a host of aging hardware (Sinclar ZX Spectrum, Epson LX-81 dot matrix printer, HP Scanjet 3c, etc.) to create a rendition that even Yorke could admire.”

I just purchased a new camera (well, Site Difference purchased the camera for me). It’s the Nikon D70s – a near professional digital SLR with a 6.1 megapixel CCD, the ability to shoot 3 frames per second (up to 144) and two lenses – to name a few. The two lenses (a 18-70mm and a 55-200mm (made by Nikkor)) were bundled with the camera as part of a promotion. Of course, this new camera will probably spark some need inside me to create a photo-blog as part of this site:
