“24 centimeters, Data’s fully functional.”

Futuristic Sex Robotz “The Positronic Pimp” Hotel Coral Essex

Long live free music!  This band called the Futuristic Sex Robotz has been releasing “Gangster Nerd Rap” via the Creative Commons License (read: free).  Not only that, but it is completely legal to distribute, remix, parody, etc. with absolutely no need for royalties/permission.  It would be illegal for me to sell burned copies of Hotel Coral Essex, but I could legally make remixes and sell those (because of the huge market for remixed “Gangster Nerd Rap” here in Frewsburg).  I hope that this format of music is embraced in the future, and not squashed by the RIAA.  (Note the song: “Fuck the MPAA.”)

On a totally different note, I went to Forrest’s huge bon fire last Saturday night.  At one point, there was 19 people there.  I loved the midgit/German feud that went on between Kyle F. and Stephen P. 

About the Fun with Dick and Jane ISO, I used Xvid to recompress it to ~760 MB.  The quality is great, and my hard drive suffers just a little bit less.  I really need a 250 GB SATA HDD soon.  (Abbreviations galore!)
