I <3 Amanda Blank & Sweatheart

I've been in love with Amanda Blank ever since I heard her on Spankrock's Bump track. When I first heard her sexy verse I looked her up on Wiki and didn't find anything - but now she's got an entry. Discovered she's also in a band called Sweatheart. Is it on Rhapsody? YES!

Great stuff, sounds nothing like what they look like when they play. They remind of an indie rock version of Stink MittCheck it out

Sirius on Sonos

Convergence is an amazing thing. Sonos announced yesterday their partnership with Sirius; you can now listen to your Sirius stations on your Sonos. Essentially it's just a ton more radio channels, but it's great for Sirius car-subscribers like myself who want to hear Howard Stern in the morning in the house. Now I'll be able to program my Sonos to tune into Stern in the morning, just like I used to wake up to Stern on Live 105 when I was in middle school. The only sucky thing is that it requires the 'premium radio subscription' for $2/mo for the fancy interface...there are other workarounds though. The basic internet radio (32kbps) isn't available over Sonos.

A Guide to Creating a Minimalist Home

A Guide to Creating a Minimalist Home

Good tips for those who aspire to have a house free of clutter and junk. I'm almost there with my kitchen, just need to clear up my other rooms now. Although somewhat devoid of "character" I kind of like the bareness of my house. Nothing on the walls, no decorations, just texture and surfaces. Maybe I'll polish my granite again...
