I don't have a shuffle (I'd rather carry 40x the music, heh), but I do like the combination of Samurai Champloo and the spoof of the distinct Apple advertising style. And the character of Mugen doing a capoeira / B-boy windmill is cool.
Still grinding away at the remainder of my grad school work.
I guess it wouldn't be so time-consuming if I wasn't such a perfectionist about stupid details like cropping weird colored borders on pictures of the maps or trying to write prose on a completely direct question like "Why is it important to know where places are in the world?"... but still I do.
Ever since I heard that sermon on "the flaw in perfectionism" on the trip with my family to my cousin Hillary's wedding back in June, it's be in the back of mind - how I can completely laidback about most things, but on other things, I hide a perfectionistic streak.
At least there's music to keep me working... my latest random music find came off AudioScrobbler:
Daphne Loves Derby.
Funny name, huh? I'm not huge indie rock expert or anything, but I do know what I like and I dig their music - especially the low-key, acoustic sound of "Simple Starving to Be Home", "Part of My Past", and "Midnight Highway". Download 'em off their site and give 'em a listen.
Other reasons to like them include...
1) They're from Seattle, specifically Kent. Nothing good ever comes from here, so the fact that they're good is all the more nutty. I should know, I grew up around here.
2) The lead singer is Asian American (Korean). And he can sing. Nice.
