  • DISS NA SOCJALIZM II (PROLOG)

    23 jan 2015, 20:28 av YesterdaysRain

    Kiedy Marks z Engelsem
    Manifest pisali
    Niejedną flaszę wódki
    zaanektowali...
    To, wszak, tłumaczy,
    dlaczego stronice tegoż "Dzieła"
    nie są aprobowane przez Badacza,
    za to lud chętnie z nich korzysta
    podczas wizytacji SR A C Z A!
    Ów Manifest -
    fasetowany, niczym kamień drogocenny,
    dziś jest przyczyną świata
    gehenny!...
  • DISS NA SOCJALIZM I

    22 jan 2015, 00:31 av YesterdaysRain

    Każdy był kiedyś socjalistą
    Będąc w podstawówce żem tego liznął -
    Był to smak cierpki z kloacznym polotem...
    Nigdy nie będę socjalistą z powrotem!
    Socjalizm jest historii klamotem -
    Dziś lirycznie besztam go z błotem
    Skończ udawać Donkiszota -
    Socjalizm - głupoty zygota!

  • Pokemon VS Death Star

    14 jan 2010, 16:03 av Regdot

    It is after the wake of the Battle of Endor. The rebellion's bid for victory against the Death Star II has failed. Ackbar's fleet has been crushed. Luke Skywalker's fate is unknown. The Rebellion has, for all practical purposes, been broken. Palpantine's Empire is stronger than ever. Endor has been turned into a fortress, with the fully operational DS II floating above it, escorted by not only the Executor, but a full fleet of ISDs and support craft.

    You are a Pokemon trainer and a rebel sympathizer. At your disposal is a high number (but not infinite - let's say... upper tens of thousands) of pokeballs of every pokemon in the pokedex.

    Your task is to destroy the Death Star II, the fleet surrounding it, and definitively kill Palpantine once and for all.

    For the purposes of your mission, we will invoke the WYSIWYG rule. As in, since Blastoise was seen to have leveled an entire hill in one of the episodes, we can assume that his blast is in the high-hundred-megajoules range in terms of power output. Scale the rest of the Pokemon's accordingly. As long as there is text/numbers in the Pokedex to back up your quantification of a particular pokemon's power (Magcargo really DOES radiate heat constantly in the range of 18,000F) What is your plan?

  • Possible solution to many artists with the same name problem?

    28 dec 2008, 23:36 av SeedSnatcher

    Now, my knowledge of coding is very basic, so bear with me if this is difficult.

    For many artists with the same name, Last.fm could maintain multiple pages. One for each.
    Now, how to differentiate?
    This will take effort from the community, but I was thinking that songs could be categorized under a disambiguation page until a bunch of people confirm which artist they're by.

    For example, I listen to a song tagged Rain. Let's say this song hasn't been categorized yet. Then I could click it in my profile to go to a page labeled Rain (disambiguation). Then I would vote for which Rain said song is by. Let's say I pick . Well if a bunch of people agree, then in the future it will scrobble it under 비. For everyone.

    It's probably not perfect, so please comment with your thoughts. And some way to suggest this to Last.fm staff. =P

    And comment with other artists of this nature if you'd like. I'll add them to the list below.

  • Review on Bear McCreary's "Battlestar Galactica: Season 2"

    7 sep 2007, 09:00 av Gezzaia

    This review is not by me and it's even more than one year old, but it is excellently written and if it makes just one or two more people listen to this great soundtrack the better...

    So I present you Paul Schultz' review on Battlestar Galactica: Season 2:

    http://www.the-trades.com/article.php?id=4496 (the original link)

    Bear McCreary, "Battlestar Galactica: Season 2" Soundtrack
    Music Review by Paul Schultz
    Published: July 9, 2006

    Collecting the very best musical moments from the second season of the Sci Fi Channel's daring re-imagining of the late 1970's series Battlestar Galactica, this soundtrack delivers a rich score that covers vast emotional territory. The young Bear McCreary builds upon his accomplishments from the previous season to scale new heights with this impressive mix that works well on its own, apart from the visuals it was geared toward.

    The packaging includes an eight-page color booklet featuring scenes from the year's offerings, plus liner notes from Executive Producer Ronald D. Moore and composer McCreary. Both are quite informative as far as revealing the difficulties and struggles inherent in producing a weekly series. McCreary relates an encounter with Stu Phillips, who composed the original theme music over twenty-five years ago, along with memories more bittersweet: "(The fourth track) was performed by the Supernova String Quartet, led by a talented young violinist, Ludwig Girland. Tragically, within a month of this recording, his car was struck by a drunk driver, leaving him in a coma, from which he has yet to awaken... The original title for this piece was 'Saying Goodbye,' which no musician who ever worked with Ludwig is ready to do. Watching 'The Farm' again, I realized that Kara is not saying goodbye to Anders, but actually giving her word that she'll come back, against all odds. So, 'A Promise to Return' seemed a more fitting title for this piece, which I have dedicated to Ludwig's recovery."

    "The first season soundtrack introduced an arsenal of Japanese taikos, Middle Eastern woodwinds, Celtic world percussion and symphonic orchestra," McCreary explains in the liner notes. Expanding upon that base, "season two's score introduced even more instruments and styles" including Indian tablas, sitars, and twangy ethnic guitars. McCreary was fortunate to mentor under renowned movie composer Elmer Bernstein to learn how to fashion music into a storytelling tool. The military snare drum cues so prevalent in the music for Season One are still present, but now are joined company by somber synthesizer textures with touches of electric guitar and bass.

    As a huge fan of the original series (a touchy subject when comparing it to this new incarnation, which I expound upon in my review of Season One), I was more than pleasantly surprised to hear the disc open with the familiar "Battlestar Galactica Main Theme" penned by Phillips and Glen A. Larson (with a little piece of "Exploration" toward the end, also from the original series' soundtrack). McCreary conducts a sixty-piece orchestra to showcase the only brass-heavy track in this new take on an old favorite. From there, the musical diversity runs the gamut from thundering percussions ("Scar"), to emotive march ("Reuniting the Fleet"), to warmhearted waltz ("Roslin and Adama"), to creepy reed instrumentation ("Escape from the Farm"), to ethereal ("Baltar's Dream"), to something you might expect to hear from an Alan Parsons instrumental ("Pegasus").

    The two lengthy inclusions, "Something Dark is Coming" and "Prelude to War", really highlight McCreary's ability to take you on a rollercoaster ride of emotion. Esoteric vocalizing is employed on "The Cylon Prisoner" (featuring McCreary's brother Bt4) and "Lords of Kobol" (featuring Raya Yarbrough). The latter track also utilizes some up-front drum sampling which was the only segment that felt out of place of any of the music presented. The final track begins innocently enough before transforming into a sprawling, gritty wall of sound featuring the guitar work of former Oingo Boingo member Steve Bartek.

    Improving on his achievements for Season One's soundtrack, Bear McCreary expands his musical palette to complement the story complexity presented in Battlestar Galactica's second season. As McCreary notes, he can't wait until he can begin scoring again for the third season. He joins the show's many fans in anticipation of the continuing adventures with a hearty "so say we all".

  • Two years without Kazım

    26 jun 2007, 20:21 av Gezzaia

    Two years ago yesterday Kazım Koyuncu died of cancer.

    Since then I haven't talked much about him. I even almost entirely stopped listening to his music.

    It's still damn difficult to overcome this weird blockage and to look back and say something meaningful. Yet I feel compelled to do so! Maybe in the search for closure..?

    Maybe I just tell about a little moment we shared...


    In 1997 I was out of prison for a few months, just waiting to go back soon after the next trial session, when I suddenly met Kazım in Beyoğlu. We hadn't seen each other for some years and he was obviously in a hurry. He hugged me strongly with his big smile, told his friends to keep on walking, saying he would catch up in a minute. Then he suddenly draw a ticket out of his pocket, gave it to me and said fervently that they aren't standing still. He was talking about the "conscientious concert" as they named it in support of conscientious objection and my case. He and his band Zuğaşi Berepe (children of the sea) were not just joining the solidarity concerts (this was the second one), but organizing them. They were convincing other bands to join too...

    I asked him about his plans concerning military service. I had no intention to imply that he should declare his objection too, but really just wanted to know about his plans. He immediately tried to explain his situation, saying that he has big plans with his music, which he can’t possibly follow if he goes to prison. I assured him that this is perfectly legitimate and understandable and that everybody obviously has to act according to his/her possibilities, situation and of course his/her inclination.

    After Zuğaşi Berepe dissolved and Kazım made it big in his personal career I often thought about that moment and his glowing friendly eyes.

    And one day we heard of “his” cancer. Everything happened so fast. Only about half a year passed after the diagnosis... Kazım was one of ten thousands from the Turkish Black Sea region who suffered from the long term effects of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. But long before anybody could have known that he would be outrun by it, he was part of the resistance against a nuclear plant in Turkey – as he was part of so many movements. At the very same time he managed to reach the masses and even made music for a soap opera – without compromising himself one bit. Kazım was unpretentious, modest, incredibly humane, energetic and straightforward. He seemingly left unscratched. What a paralyzing thought...

    Here’s a big hug for you, son of the sea...
  • Kevin Moore to be the producer of Makine

    9 apr 2007, 13:37 av Gezzaia

    As Kevin Moore himself told MTV News Türkiye on 3rd of April (which I missed and heard just now), he has officially teamed up with Turkish industrial rock band Makine for pre and master production of their debut album. The contract was signed last week. The group members picked him and his gear up from Istanbul yesterday and reached Izmir by night. They are right now enjoying a tea at the sea-side before the work can start. :)

    Kevin Moore is well-known as the first keyboardist of Dream Theater. He later concentrated on his solo-project Chroma Key, while taking part in various groups as OSI and Fates Warning.

    For more info on Makine check out their official website, the last.fm artist page or the last.fm group Makine
