In Your Face, Windows Users

I upgraded to the two-day-old newest version of my operating system last night. Guess what it took? Not a couple hundred dollars. I didn't have to massively upgrade my hardware just to experience all of my OS's features. I just typed a few commands in a command prompt. Ah, life is good.

I Feel For You, Bunny Dude

This is a lower quality version. For the really good one go here.

Software You Should Know About: Songbird

"Songbird promises to be the Firefox of media players." Aaron Boodman, Greasemonkey

Songbird is a Mozilla-based, open source, cross-platform media player. Just watch that video and see how cool it looks. The dude making the video is kind of a dork, which makes the vid even better. The only feature I don't see on the website is ID3 tagging, but it plays all the great formats, including Ogg Vorbis and WMA. My current Linux-only media player doesn't do those. This thing even plays videos, but I'm pretty sure it's not intended to replace your video player. I shudder to think anyone still uses Windows Media Player for music, but if you are, this would be the perfect thing to switch to. (If you are still using WMP, do you realize an entire nation sued Microsoft over that program?)

Apparently Meat Loaf's Bat out of Hell III: The Monster Is Loose was leaked. Pretty good so far. You can tell he's older, and it's weird to hear him do a cover song. Even though it's a cover, his version of "It's All Coming Back To Me" with the so so sexy Marion Raven (whose voice reminds me of Eponine's from the Original Broadway Cast Recording of Les Miserables) is so powerfull and beautiful that it gives me goosebumps over and over. That's Meat Loaf for you, though. I totally recommend this album, especially for the few Meat fans I know. Downloaded or not, I'm buying this album on it's release on October 31.
