They invented the internet, but forgot to switch it off


More tests/flailing around in the dark:

Okay then; can someone try clicking on this and see what happens. 

***edit: don't do any clicking if you don't want to download MIA's Paper Planes (original chorus version)***

What I'm really wanting is the mp3 to start playing in a separate window, but if you want to DL it you can right click (pc) or alt click (mac).

If anyone knows how to do this, please let me know!

Kudos for the blog, Blimpster. Love the PD Wodehouse aesthetic you've got going. Top hole sah! Not sure how to do the doodles you want BUT www.deezer.com has just up-dated their site with all sorts of exciting new functions like a radio and I believe you can blog playlists too.

If I click I download MIA's paper airplanes (Thanks very much, I like it and didn't have it) Cntrl-click gets me a pop-down menu with the options to open it /open in a new window, download it /download as, add to bookmarks or copy...

Also, FP, the invite has been sent out, and should be with you soon as.

Another website that's good for live band sessions (and all with the band's permission) is

http://www.archive.org/index.php

So far I've downloaded Low, Liars and Little Feat (early 1976 stuff), and they've all been really fine quality.

I do like archive.org , i use it to get stock video footage from the olden black and white days for making videos with.

MIA's paper planes mentions "sitting on trains" coincidentally.

Hi Delon/ Delon's record company,

Thanks for posting up links to your video, I watched it.

Now as I don't know enough about Sri Lanka's history it's impossible for me to pass educated comment on who's right and who's wrong in the situation.

As Primal Scream once sang "one man's freedom fighter is another's terrorist"

MIA's only appropriated a bit of conflict to aid her hipster chic, nothing more.

The Clash (sampled by MIA for Paper Planes) used to wear Red Army Faction shirts etc - mostly to look cool and add to their rebel stance.

It's all no biggie, really, rockers have been at this sort of lark for ages - and Delon; aren't you doing the same sort of thing to aid your career?
