Random Things that are Awesome

Friday, March 23

I was trying to think of a Thursday review for this week and it was just too difficult to find one thing to review out of my life recently so I've decided to take a decidedly optimistic stance to counter some kinda sad things going on these day and tell you about a few awesome things I discovered recently.

1. The Teenagers remix of Au Revoir Simone's Fallen Snow

I heard this, loved it and proceeded to buy Au Revoir Simone's cd, Verses of Comfort, Assurance & Salvation and then hunted the internet for more of The Teenagers who are more than entertaining in their own right. Search out their song homecoming for a little ridiculousness in your head.

Possibly still downloadable here:

2. Excel Spread Sheets
Yeah, super geek I know but I'm on a new project at work and crunching through data like crazy. Excel drives me nuts but seriously what did people do before it?

3. The Wind That Shakes The Barley

While I was a little disappointed in this movie it is pretty thought provoking and worth watching just to get some history on Ireland and a fantastic inside look of what it must be like trying to form a country out of a resistance movement. There are some great scenes of debate that force you to think about which shade of grey you'd be willing to stand up and fight for.

What did people do before Excel? They probably wrote Perl scripts. I still have my abusive relationship with Perl.

I'll have to check out that film. The hot (but scary) evil guy from "Batman Begins" is in it!

I love how you've trademarked your own spelling of "rediculousness."
