Music made with Windows sounds

This is a waste of time but so brilliant!!! All the sounds used for this are sounds made by Windows XP and Windows 98. There is a LOT of similar stuff out there on YouTube. Fun bit: the versions made with Apple Mac sounds are nowhere near as good!! Hehehe.

Oddest Book Title

This week in The Guardian, examples of The Oddest Book Titles. There is a prize for these. There is a wonderful gallery with some of the best titles out there.

My personal favourite is "The Sexual Politics of Meat. A Feminist-Vegeratian Critical Theory"

Honestly, do feminists not have better things to do? Is this what my tax money goes toward: funding ridiculous studies like that?

Anyway, back to the books. How about "Greek Rural Postmen and their Cancellation Numbers" or "Tattooed Mountain Women and Spoon Boxes of Daghestan"

These books have all been written by people who are serious about their beloved subject. These people probably do not see the strange side of the title. Should we ridicule them for it? You bet we should. I mean "Highlights in the History of Concrete"???!!! Come on.
