Curious George: Summer mix for a kid-musician? I've had to choose a bunch of tunes for an hyper-taleneted kid/11-year-old guitar student. Don't ask why and yes she is an 11-year-old nerd. If you had to fill a CD for a current musician-kid what would you use? My 18 tunes are below... I appreciate any additions and I am sure she will too. When she get's back from the cottage in September... more inside
Easy Drinking? Dudes, whisky doesn't have to be just for old folks anymore, and neither do you run the risk of affectation. I so totally want the smokey peaty one, though my taste test tells me I'm more likely to prefer the rich spicy one (so does this mean I should like my whisky how I like my men?) but sadly there are no stockists in my part of Cananananananada.

Man Slippers. Who ever you are, having this man slipper is so functional yet beneficial for you. You probably have known much about this and you always thought that this man slipper must be own by every man. Agree?
Curious George: It ain't stealin'! I read a lot of musicblogs, but it's kinda a pain in the ass to download each track individually... I like RSS feeders, but they don't automatically pick up the files (at least, Thunderbird doesn't). Is there a similar software that just cruises blogs you subscribe to, and downloads anything with .mp3 after it? Ideally, this should sync with iTunes so that I could have daily playlists...
