"Alright, this is gonna be weird," is all Jimmy can muster by way of introduction, which is really the most perfect opener possible to a performance stacking the talent in this post title. Also could've said "this is gonna be awesome," which it totally is.

Der weltweite Musikmarkt steckt in einer Krise: Probleme wie sinkende Umsätze im Bereich der physischen Tonträger und der stetig wachsende Anteil illegal aus dem Internet geladener Musik machen ihm seit einigen Jahren zu schaffen. Dies hat in jüngster Vergangenheit dazu geführt, dass immer mehr Major Labels den Markt mit Produktionen minderer Qualität überschwemmen. Frei nach der Devise Quantität statt Qualität.
Anders verläuft jedoch die Entwicklung im Bereich der kleinen Independent Labels. Gerade die von vielen Major Labels vernachlässigte oder gar eingestellte Förderung und Etablierung von qualitativ hochwertigen, neuen Künstlern aus dem sogenannten ‚Underground‘ führt dort zu eher positiv Ergebnissen. Eine zentrale Rolle spielt hierbei das Internet, welches den Independent Labels die Möglichkeit bietet ihre Künstler einer breiten Masse vorzustellen – ohne dabei auf den herkömmlichen Weg über Plattenpresswerke, Vertriebe, etc. gehen zu müssen.

File-Sharing Students Fight Copyright Constraints
Members assert that the Internet has made it necessary to rethink copyright law, and they talk about the group’s goals with something like the reverence that earlier generations displayed in talking about social or racial equality.
“People wonder why college students aren’t rallying more around the Iraq war,” Mr. McCune said. “If there were a draft, we probably would be. Students are so quick to fight for this cause because we’re the ones bearing the burden.”
Cory Doctorow, co-editor of the popular technology blog Boing Boing, said the recording industry lawsuits were not “scaring students away from file-sharing, but scaring them into political consciousness.”

Not Again: 24 Great Films Too Painful To Watch Twice

Welcome to Rotten Tomato's 50 Best-Reviewed Horror Movies
Halloween is on the horizon and it's time to celebrate cinema's creepiest offerings. OK, so maybe some of the flicks -- think Shaun of the Dead and The Bride of Frankenstein -- are far more likely to make you keel over with laughter than sleep with one eye open, but that doesn't mean there aren't any fear-inducing fright fests on the list.

Kuksi
Kuksi's art speaks of a timelessness; potentiality and motion attempting to reach on forever, and yet pessimistically delayed; forced into the stillness of death and eternal sleep. He treats morbidity with a sympathetic touch and symbolizes the paradox of the death of the individual by objective personification of death.

Storys

Männer. Eine überspitzte Darstellung ihrer Eigenarten.
Ich bin ein großer Fan von Mario Barth. Es ist erstaunlich auf welch enthusiastische Weise dieser Mann es schafft, die Blödsinnigkeiten von uns Frauen zwei Stunden lang zu thematisieren. Man kann von diesem Typ auch halten was man will, viele finden seinen Humor im Gegensatz zum ebenso großen Dieter Nuhr beispielsweise nicht “intelligent” genug, aber er hat, was den Großteil der weiblichen Bevölkerung und den Großteil ihrer jeweiligen Macken betrifft, recht.

Und so.

5 Of The Biggest Gangs
Gangs and criminal organizations come into creation for a number of reasons or motives. Usually they revolve around money, and use fear, crime and extortion. They can be loosely controlled with no apparent structure, or they can be highly efficient with military like organization. In contrast to general media conception, gangs have been around for centuries in one shape or another, the Chinese Triads for example were started as a resistance to the Manchu Emperor of the Qing Dynasty in the 1760s. Here are just 5 of the biggest gangs and criminal groups in existence today.

The Satelloons Of Project Echo: Must. Find. Satelloons.
From about 1956 until 1964, US aeronautics engineers and rocket scientists at the Langley Research Center developed a series of spherical satellite balloons called, awesomely enough, satelloons.

P2P researchers: use a blocklist or you will be tracked... 100% of the time
The old cliché "You're not paranoid if they really are out to get you" turns out to apply quite nicely to the world of P2P file-sharing. A trio of intrepid researchers from the University of California-Riverside decided to see just how often a P2P user might be tracked by content owners. Their startling conclusion: "naive" users will exchange data with such "fake users" 100 percent of the time.
