My old trusty Sony headphones broke where the headpiece joins the earpiece a while back. I tried gluing them a couple of time but by the third break I knew they would never work out. I got myself a nice pair of Sennheiser HD25 Mk II’s which I’ve always loved. I took them for a test drive this weekend and recorded the result and named it Wizz, Bang, Boing.
It is 2 hour psychedelic trance journey to a damp land inhabited by heavy wild things stomping about bending balloons into fantastic shapes as robot insects flit between the speaker stacks looking for their guitars.
Update: I have moved this 200+ MB mix to adrive.com. You should be able to download it with no problems now!

We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to cruise up to Texada Island for Diversity Electronic Music festival. What an experience! Rolling into a festival by boat and unloading onto the beach to camp is something to experience! Thanks so much to all the lovely people we met and played with – you make it all worthwhile!

I captured a few short (30 second) video clips while at Entheos Music festival 2008 on my Canon S80 digital camera.
The main dance floor looks pretty dark – but thats what you get under Psychedelic lighting conditions! Enjoy

Cooliris (already known for their webpage preview when you hover over a link) have a plugin available for you browser called Piclens. After installing, with a single click you will be able to transform your flickr or youtube browsing to a beautifully rendered fullscreen photo wall.
update July 2008: WordPress does not currently support the Piclens plugin – however you can still leverage it simply by hosting your pics somewhere like Flickr
It’s is actually pretty simple to get Piclens working on your blog. Simply host all your photos on Flickr (or similar piclens supported website). That way the little piclens play button is just visible and working.
So instead of uploading your picture directly to wordpress – upload them to Flickr (there is a good Batch Uploading tool if you upload photos all the time).
Once on Flickr browse to your photo
Right Click – Copy Address (firefox anyway – Internet Explorer may be a little different). Make sure you have the correct picture size selected ie Not the thumbnail
In WordPress create new post
Paste the URL you just copied from Flickr
Add a description
Add a Caption if you want
Insert Image into Post
Thats it! When you publish your post you’ll now see the Piclens icon for any/all pics you have hosted on Flickr.
