iTunes has officially eclipsed Best Buy in music sales and now comes in as the number two music retailer in the world. That's not just digital music either—that's all music, including CD sales. iTunes now sits just behind Wal-Mart, according to new data from the NPD Group that accounts for the amount of music sold during 2007. The trend shows once again that digital music sales are exploding at the expense of physical CDs, but the increase has yet to offset the decline in physical media sales.

Barackula is a short political horror rock musical about young Barack Obama having to stave off a secret society of vampires at Harvard when he was inducted into presidency at the Harvard Law Review in 1990. Obama (Justin Sherman) finds that he must convince the vampire society that opposing political philosophies can coexist or else the society may transform Obama to the dark side. Reminiscent to Michael Jackson's Thriller, and a slight infusion of Jesus Christ Superstar, this short film offers two original musical numbers, "Running" and "This Is Our Time," which, lyrically, are allegorical to Obama's current campaign and speeches.

In the fight against the undead, weapons born in the modern era will only have a small hand in the war. To triumph, we will have to take a page from our ancestors who have fought the undead centuries and generations before us. Not discounting the value of a good firearm, there are other weapons commonly available that can be used against the coming tides of death.
It was the fourth day of a fairly epic road trip from Tacoma to Denver, and my goal for the day was to drive from Yuba City, California to Ely, Nevada. Why would I choose to drive across Nevada? Well, I like my landscapes the same way I like my music: desolate and sad. In other words, yes, I tacked an extra 600 miles onto my trip just so I could drive across the frozen desert and listen to Godspeed You! Black Emperor. And it was worth it.
Wie die BIFAB als Herausgeberin der Brockhaus-Lexika und anderer Nachschlagewerke vor wenigen Tagen meldete, steht das 200 Jahre alte Unternehmen vor dem vielleicht größten Paradigmenwechsel seiner Geschichte, wenn es im April dieses Jahres mit einer kostenlosen Online-Ausgabe startet. Die Welt des im Netz abrufbaren Wissens erhält somit eine bereichernde weitere Facette – ein Grund zur Freude, sollte man meinen.
Wer sich in den vergangenen Tagen im Netz, speziell in Weblogs, nach Reaktionen umsah, musste jedoch den Eindruck bekommen, dass dieser Zuwachs alles andere als begrüßenswert sei.

Smith's films often feature the same actors (who are also some of his closest friends), including Jason Lee, Ben Affleck, Joey Lauren Adams (for whom he wrote the lead role in Chasing Amy), Jason Mewes, and Matt Damon.
Some lesser known regulars in Smith's films include Scott Mosier, Jeff Anderson, Brian O'Halloran and Dwight Ewell. Also, he casts himself in nearly all of his movies.

The Smell of Space. It is hard to describe this smell; it is definitely not the olfactory equivalent to describing the palette sensations of some new food as "tastes like chicken." The best description I can come up with is metallic; a rather pleasant sweet metallic sensation.
Super Mario 2 has a great soundtrack. In this awesome rendition, though, Andrea Vadrucci proves that everything sounds better with percussion.
Which got me thinking: What if a giant space monster *did* invade Manhattan. Are our cell phones, digital cameras and digital camcorders up to it? I think not. In general, our gadgets aren't rugged enough, nor are they easy enough to use hands-free.
It's always the quiet ones. Looking at (Hugh Whitaker), the former drummer of the Housemartins looks like he wouldn't say boo to a goose. He even took being sacked from the Hull-based group in good spirits. But something snapped in 1993, when he firebombed the house of former business associate James Hewitt and hit him in the head with an axe. Whitaker has since been released from prison and now lives in Leeds, where he occasionally drums with a local band called Percy.

A New White Person Complaint Every Day Of The Week
This site, in conjunction with its sponsors, has been established to abolish the ever-present lie that is "LOL." Over the past decade it has become increasingly obvious that countless web users are misrepresenting themselves by typing LOL (or "lolling" as it has come to be called) when they are NOT actually laughing out loud. This ruse has been at the expense of internet loyalists who add up the lols they receive in chat rooms and on message boards every day.
Die Künstliche Intelligenz (KI) oder auch Artificial Intelligence (AI) hat ein Problem. Denn während die Grafik von Computerspielen kontinuierlich besser wird, stagniert die Simulation von Künstlicher Intelligenz seit Jahren auf niedrigem Niveau. Programmierer und Wissenschaftler untersuchen die Gründe für die KI-Dummheit.
STYLES make fights — or so goes the boxing cliché. In 2008, they make presidential campaigns, too.
This is especially true for the two remaining Democrats, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Reporters covering the candidates have already resorted to traditional analysis of style — fashion choices, manner of speaking, even the way they laugh. Yet, according to design experts, the candidates have left a clear blueprint of their personal style — perhaps even a window into their souls — through the Web sites they have created to raise money, recruit volunteers and generally meet-and-greet online.
On one thing, the experts seem to agree. The differences between hillaryclinton.com and barackobama.com can be summed up this way: Barack Obama is a Mac, and Hillary Clinton is a PC.

Considering the many kinds of information Google aggregates and the individual tools it has built to visualize all that data, one could easily argue that its primary and decidedly bare-bones search portal got long in the tooth some time ago. As search competitors like Yahoo and Ask.com have introduced new ways for users to display and organize search results, Google only showed the first official signs of improving its search results UI in May 2007. Now, finally, Google has unveiled some opt-in experimental search features that allow users to find and reorganize more kinds of search results. The days of being limited to simple lists of ten blue links may soon be behind us.
