Amarga (Bitter)

(e:tinypliny) is not the only (e:peep) who listens to Spanish language music.

Duncan Dhu is my favie Spanish (as in from Spain) band.

(e:tinypliny) - I hope you like this one. I posted it with you in mind.

Duele más
cuando es por amor
siempre más
si no estamos los dos.

Las noches son como día sin luz,
los días son como noche con luz.

¿quién da más?
por mi pobre razón
¿quién da más?
si yo tengo un montón.

La nieve está
empañando el cristal
no quiero estar solo
en Navidad.

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.

(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.

  • Linnie 10/17 06:57 Hi Neighbors - I just bought a groovy renovated carriage house on Linwood Ave, and I'm so excited to live in our wonderful city! The large house in front of the carriage house burned down in the 70's. An article I found about the property cited that 'Matthew' on this site had posted a series of photos called 'Lost Linwood" (article was from 2012). I thought maybe Matthew was still on this site or perhaps someone could help me find the photos. I'd love to see the original house and carriage house
