Sweet Smoke - Just a poke.
1 LP, 2 songs. Children of the flowers, experimenting with all sorts of music and dreaming of a better tomorrow... This is one of my favourite records that I heard because of my uncles' arcane and weird LP collection... Enjoy!

Apparently, depending on how you perceive the movement in the rotating image here will tell you.
I'm seeing it clockwise, which means I'm using the right part of my brain more...
How about you?

Athens gets landmark eco building.
A very big "bravo" to all the people involved in this, let's hope this doesn't stay in the sphere of experimental projects but becomes more and more present in Greek cities.

... open up their course material and lectures. MIT with Open Courseware and UC Berkeley with YouTube videos of the course lectures. One just needs to subscribe to their video channel and let the hard work begin...
It's actually very nice to see some universities (hint hint) to open up to the public and share the knowledge. This is the exact opposite to my institution's attitude, where everything is treated as a potential money-maker. Sad... really sad.

Now, the catch. There are two editions. The one is the boxed version for £40 (60E)!!!! And the catch is, it contains 2 CDs and Vinyl versions of the album.
When I saw that I was a bit pissed off! I want a physical entity, but this amount is way too much! Did Radiohead sell out?
That was of course until I saw the second option... Radiohead lets fans price new CD. Yep, they request that you pay what you think the music is worth, with a minimum of 46pence (around 80cents)!!!!!!. Unfortunately only 1CD will be available as a download...

On the 1st of October 2002, I was signing my contract that was essentially the start of my PhD. 5 years later on and I still have not finished what I came to do, which is kind of sad.
5 years of concentration, frustration, disappointment, misery. 5 years saying goodbye to people that were moving on with their lives and me staying behind. All for ...

85 more days, and then... peace.
