01:57 am - Bits and pieces ...
So, Enterprise has been cancelled. Fortunately, whoever writes all their Treknobabble has a bright future in writing beauty product ads ... nanosomes ? pro-vitamins ? pseudo-scientific gibberish of all sorts, and is there any proof that slathering this stuff on your skin can actually do anything other than leave you with goop-slathered skin ?

Meanwhile, watch out for The Cuddly Menace .

I've been trying out iRATE radio a bit. I'll quote their blurb :

iRATE radio is a collaborative filtering system for music. You rate the tracks it downloads and the server uses your ratings and other people's to guess what you'll like. The tracks are downloaded from websites which allow free and legal downloads of their music.

I've been trying to steer my ratings towards the gothy/dark/neo-(folk,classical) areas, but I suspect there aren't many artists in those styles who make their music freely available on the Net. Still, it's turned up Beth Quist , described as "electro-Balkan/Indian meets New Age" (in other words, Sheila Chandra meets Lisa Gerrard :-) ). I hope to turn up some other interesting artists this way.
Current Mood: geekygeeky

You should check out Shiva in Exile in that case. Think you might like it :)

Let me know if you find anything outstanding over at Magnatune; I haven't found much since Shiva in Exile. Stellamara had a fair album if I recall correctly, but since then I haven't come across anything that's to my taste, which is unfortunate. I'd really like to support Magnatune, but I can't do it if they don't have music I like...
