So like I'm a subscriber to a mailing list organised by the Creative Commons, named CC-Lessigletter, a mailing list which is usually active during their annual fund drives (the fund drive is a requirement from the United States' IRS to show that the 501(c) Non-Profit organisation has "popular support"). And the fun thing about this mailing list is how it promotes the Creative Commons cause; not by making 'sales pitches' urging 'participation' for the 'public good' (particularly your 'monetary participation). No, they definitely do not shill; in stead they tell war stories, positive stories highlighting what the Creative Commons have done.
And this month's CC-Lessig Newsletter (written by Creative Commons activist Fred Benenson) informed me that Radiohead has released a new album, "In Rainbows," and is making it available as a download where you name your own price. And yes, you can name your price "zero pence". Which is what I did since I'm practically broke thus why I'm volunteering for JiFFest for practically pennies.
I've downloaded the album, its a 48-megabyte zip file containing 10 drm-free high-quality mp3s. Wikipedia says that the songs are pretty good; I don't know since I don't have speakers at my workstation here. And you know what, when JiFFest pays me I think I'll just buy me a box set. We'll see...

I don't write intellectually. I write expressively. I don't claim to be accurate, fair or thorough. I don't wanna get stuck on certain topics. Though I sometimes do. But not that often. I'd like to expand. I wanna write more poems. But I'll only upload them if they're good. I only rant about my life's hardships if it will rescue just a little bit of my sanity. I'm saner than I make myself out to be, though.
If I am an OS kernel, and I just had a kernel dump, I'd imagine that the text in this blog is what it would more or less look like.
There. Do you get it?
