ITYM "lg-staff"... See Mike? You're not the only one :)

[Sluggo] You're back!!! I heard you were offline for a while.

[Jimmy] I was. I guess Eircom ran out of snafus, because I finally managed to get ADSL in my new ("new" - I've been here most of the year) house :)

In my house...
In my house... just to create the illusion that I'm always this tidy :)

It's great - I'd forgotten what it was like to waste whole days on the internet :)

Like... last time we were chatting about music, it would have been great if I'd been able to go to Google Video and point at a video. Right now, I'm listening to this: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-4142118223861169944 - Al Di Meola and friends

Last time, I think I mentioned "Vicarious" by Tool:

I know I mentioned Opeth mixing death metal and folk - watch "The Drapery Falls"!
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-3385647969174851687 or, heck, see the band explain how to play it:

They even have the straight acoustic song I mentioned, "Harvest":
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-8485325119355902869 and a "death metal singing lesson":

Then there's last.fm, and "recommended radio"...
