Hip Hop is dead
René freut sich dass die Umsatzzahlen im Hip-Hop zurückgehen, Simon kommentiert dazu, ich kommentier jetzt Simon: Auch Gangsterrap hat seine Daseinsberechtigung. Genauso wie Studentenrap, Müslirap, Conscious-Rap, Battle-Rap und Blödelrap. Schade isses halt nur wenn sich die Medien nur auf eine Schiene beschränken und damit das immer gleiche, einseitige Bild von Hip-Hop zeichnen. Das im Moment aus Musik aus dem Ghetto, Schimpfwörtern, frauenverachtenden Texten, und Gewalt besteht. Aber das geht ja nicht nur uns Hoppern so, das ist ein allgemeines Medien-Problem.

Trent Reznor Interview
- I know people have it and I know it's on everybody's iPods, but the climate is such that people don't buy it because it's easier to steal it.
- You're a bit of a computer geek. You must have been there, too?
- Oh, I understand that -- I steal music too, I'm not gonna say I don't. But it's tough not to resent people for doing it when you're the guy making the music, that would like to reap a benefit from that. On the other hand, you got record labels that are doing everything they can to piss people off and rip them off.

TV Torrents: When 'piracy' is easier than legal purchase
NBC's recent withdraw from the iTunes store leaves the millions of users of Apple iPods without a legitimate way to purchase and watch NBC's content. Could this be the push that brings easy-to-use 'piracy' to the masses? This article discusses the issues, and then provides step-by-step instructions to setup a computer to automatically download any of hundreds of TV shows as soon as they are broadcast and put online.

scared.jpgScared to Death
Scared to Death is a 1947 horror movie starring Béla Lugosi, shot in Cinecolor, and is one of only three colour pictures he was in and is the only color picture he starred in. The film is notable for its narration by a dead woman - she describes the events leading up to her death.
From a slab in the morgue, a dead young woman tells the bizarre tale of how she got there, through a maze of murder involving a hypnotist, a midget and a mysterious figure in a blue mask.

"Family Guy: Blue Harvest" Concept Art
Here's a first look at concept art from the "Family Guy" special episode called "Blue Harvest" -- a hilarious homage to the Star Wars saga as unique as only Seth MacFarlane and his talented team of writers can make it.


“Als mein Vater bei der RAF war” - oder “Wie ich meinem Vater mal den Verfassungsschmutz auf den Hals hetzte”
Ich war daher schon früh gezwungen ausgeklügelte Lausch-Strategien zu entwickeln, um auf dem Laufenden zu bleiben. Die einfachste Methode war es aus dem Kinderzimmerfenster zu klettern, ums Haus zu schleichen und sich unter das geöffnete Wohnzimmerfenster zu setzen. Leider war das im Winter kalt und während der warmen Jahreszeiten rief die blöde Frau B. von nebenan immer herüber, was man denn da machen würde. (via)

Logotrends 2007
Today, for many trends there is now a countertrend – and this is not only the case for logo design. The public and its likes and dislikes have become fragmented across the spectrum. Companies who need logos and designer who create logos are forced to respond accordingly. It has become increasingly difficult to simply look in one direction or the other.

netzpolitik: BKA-Gesetz und Schäubles Weltbild
Die ZEIT hat heute eine schöne Analyse des BKA-Gesetzentwurfs, der vor kurzem an die Öffentlichkeit gelangt war. Es geht hier nämlich um viel mehr als den Bundestrojaner. Deutlich wird, dass immer mehr die prozessualen Hürden (Richtervorbehalt etc.) für schwerwiegende Eingriffe aufgeweicht werden sollen.
