the only earth?

here she comes ...

today's postmodern moment: At Solstice, Brendan was showing me a CD (Danielson Famile, Fetch The Compass Kids). I put it in my iBook and ripped a copy to my hard drive while showing him this month's Wired magazine, the music issue. The cover features the slogan "rip. mix. burn." above a crashing Zeppelin; articles include a table of anti-filesharing activites of the music industry; a sympathetic profile of Hilary Rosen; a discussion of the tension between the electronics and music division at Sony.

As for the album, it will take some time.


first runner-up: ten minutes after the topic of breaching doctor-patient confidentiality came-up in conversation, I started to do my reading for class tomorrow. The case: Tarasof v. The Regents of the University of California.
