Twoja Lawa (Your Lava)

Today's Polish Song is a wonderful bit of pop fluff from the late 1990s by the band Sixteen with the lead singer Renata Dabkowska

No Pasaran (They Shall Not Pass)

Since (e:tinypliny) likes Spanish language songs, here's a Polish song by the vaguely ska band Blade Loki with a Spanish language chorus.

No Pasaran refers to the famous battle cry of the Spanish Civil War

(Not A) Communist

Today's Polish song is by Kryzys (Crisis)

I love this song. This is really weird for me because this is an edit of a longer video that someone else posted on Youtube that included a another song and part of a tv show.

All I did was edit the original video down to the (Not A) Communist song.

Hopefully, I didn't piss anyone off by doing this. I tried to give full credit.

Miasteczko N. (Town N.)

Recently, (e:enknot) was quoted as saying that (e:strip) is boring.

Here is a Polish song to honor that observation. It's by Shakin Dudi. The song begins with the chant "Boredom, Boredom" in Polish. Nuff Said.

Zareason Hex-core Linux Box

After using Linux boxes almost exclusively for almost 10 years, I've finally done it. I've bought a Linux box instead of buying a Windows box and installing Linux on it.

I bought a Limbo 6000A with an AMD Phenom II X6 1055T processor and 6 gigs of RAM from Zareason . They custom build Ubuntu boxes. I ordered it with Ubuntu Studio.

When darkness was falling today, the UPS man delivered it.

And so far so good. I ordered it with a wireless card. And amazingly enough, it worked even though vanilla Ubuntu Studio doesn't support any wireless (apparently, wifi drivers affect latency. And latency is bad for audio and video production; so, no wireles for Ubuntu Studio)

My only complaint is that the /home doesn't have its own partition. I just took it for granted that it would. It's not a big deal to me to change it so. Not having a dedicated /home partition negates some of the flexibility of having a Linux Box. And a Linux newbie would probably be afraid of fucking up their box by changing the partition scheme. On the other hand, Windows users are used to having system and data files on the same partition.

The default settings are decent.

I think I'm going to have lots of fun with this box.

Dwojka Rzymska (Roman II)

Krzysztof Komeda is arguably Poland's best jazz pianist of the 1960s. In the Western world, he is perhaps best known as the composer of the lullaby from the film Rosemary's Baby.

This performance is from 1964.

Popcorn

(e:tinypliny,53211)1 gave us Jean Michael Jarre's Popcorn but alas his is not the original in case anyone cares.

The original Popcorn by Gershon Kingsley in 1969

Kalifornia ponad wszystko (California Uber Alles)

As I wrote earlier (e:uncutsaniflush,53202) I am a huge fan of Kazik Staszewski. I mentioned that stylistically he is all over the map.

Today's Polish Song is an example of that. It is a cover of the Dead Kennedys' California Uber Alles by Kazik Na Żywo (Kazik Live). For some reason, Kazik decided to do metal/hardcore covers of his own songs live. He also did some old school covers. This is one of them.

Prohibition

Kazik Staszewski (the English wikipedia page isn't that good since I stopped maintaining it, sorry) is my favorite Polish musical artist and he may be my favorite musical artist period. Stylistically he is all over the map - everything from Polish folk to metal with stops at rap and hip hop and Kurt Weill and Tom Waits. His music is both political and funny.

He is very prolific so it is very hard for me to decide where to start with Kazik. I reckon that an accessible English language song would be a good place to start.

"El Dupa" is a side project that includes members of Kult and other bands that Kazik has recorded with.

The song "Prohibition" was written as a protest against the banning of liquor sales in the towns that the Pope was visiting in Poland in 1999.

Kazik loves John Bonham and John Bonham samples show up in his songs when you least expect them.
