New Tilley Hat

Bullet Time, take two

Abstract: Got new HD, saved much info off old HD
computer neepery fascinating to some, boring to othersCollapse )
In the meantime: Marscon. I now have Thursday and part of Friday to make a Marscon CD Exchange CD. I have too many songs that sort of fit in dreamshark's theme of "Divine Madness". Love makes you crazy! Psychotic people are murderers! Madness is the proper reaction to an insane world! Ah well. At the moment, it's called Outside the Box and starts with "21st Century Schizoid Man" by King Crimson and ends on a high note, "I Can See Clearly Now" by Johnny Nash. That may change.

Ascent Into Madness -- a Marscon Exchange CD

Well, it took a week, but I wrestled it to the ground. After a hard drive failure, two FedEx deliveries, much hand-wringing and a couple of requests, I finally have 1:11 minutes of music/spoken word that flows and covers the subject. The hard parts were coming up with a title and which song to end on. And I may change my mind, but for now:

1. 21st Century Schizoid Man Including Mirrors – King Crimson 7:23
2. Slacker Health – The Neanderthal Spongecake 4:22
3. How Far Can We Go Crazy? – Kacey Jones 3:34
4. English is Cuh-Ray-Zee (English is Crazy) – Pete Seeger 3:45
5. I'd Have To Be Crazy – Willie Nelson 3:26
6. Crazy Baby – Rodney Crowell 3:04
7. Sheila – Tommy Roe 1:58
8. Boys of Bedlam – Steeleye Span 4:19
9. Madman Mora Blues – Boiled In Lead 3:13
10. Twisted – Joni Mitchell 2:21
11. 99 Holes – Jimmie Dale Gilmore 3:13
12. Coo Coo-U – Kingston Trio 2:19
13. They’re Coming To Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa! – Napoeon XlV 2:09
14. Meter Madness – Tom Digby 1:54
15. With Sparklers All Around Her – Power Salad 2:49
16. How Nice – The Tokens 3:06
17. Matilda Mother – Pink Floyd 3:08
18. Crazy Man Michael – Fairport Convention 4:38
19. My Descent Into Madness – Eels 3:55
20. The World's Gone Mad – The Jitterz 4:02
21. Queen Isabella – Krostopher Klover 3:05

The people I know are in this year's Exchange are mle292 and dreamshark. Anyone else playing?

Due to the aforementioned technical problems, I'll have a limited amount of them at Marscon, but I can burn more.
