Ahh, here is my favorite song from Cowboy Bebop:

Yoko Kanno - "Green Bird" (stream)

Of course, half of its effectiveness is the imagery it's set to, but still, I like just listening to it.

As if my previous avatar (Dali) didn’t give it away I’m into surrealism and that scene, music and imagery, is awesome. Shows like that help convince me just how stagnant and boring most Hollywood movies and Western TV have become.

Thanks for the link.

Not that I know of and if I did am doubtful I would have known what I was looking at, at the time. What’s really sad is that in 2003 I was stationed for about 3 months in Moron Spain. Some of us rented a car for a week off and must have driven within 5K of Figueres, his home and location of his museum. Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!

I also like Dali because he was a “bit” of a non-conformist, also why I like people like Al Davis and George Carlin. Conformists make me nervous, unless they have power in which case they scare the hell out of me.

You can download the soundtrack for the Xbox Live Arcade game, Castle Crashers, in MP3 from Newgrounds.com. Here the links are collected on the Xbox.com forums:

Soundtrack Guide---download all of the Castle Crasher Tunes!

I haven't listened to them all, but I remember liking the music I heard in the part of the game I played.

Those are really cool. I’ve only listened to the first 5 but I like it. Have to check out the rest tomorrow, off to bed.

Thanks for that link,
Dean

Aahh, Rammstein in the original German. Not that I know German, so I will just have to quote it in English:

Goddamn, not an angel when I die!

This stuff cracks me up.

Any input about Blue-ray music? It seems with the supported formats that a BD should be able to offer excellent audio for music. I love my SACDs and was wondering if there will be BD music disks or are there already some out there I'm not aware of? Don't care if there is video or not.

I have the BD version of René Jacobs conducting Don Giovanni. It is a 5.1 24b/48k and the sound is stunning. Because of the video, the mixing is slightly different than the SACD version (not recorded with the exact same crew, actually) which makes singers more confined to the central channel in the BD disk.

Because of that, I prefer the SACD (for the sound only, obviously), BUT since the BD is 30% cheaper than the SACD set, it is actually quite promising for the future. That BD/SACD-set is a product of Harmonia Mundi, a most excellent recording studio.

I have a few other BD (Die Zauberflote, Cinderella and a few others I can't rememeber right now) at 16bits and, altough the sound is nice, it is nothing to fall off a chair; pretty much the same as a regular CD using PLII, a bit better, but not by much. Picture is good though! \:\)
