NERDS MAKE YOUR LIFE BETTER

partslabor1.jpg

some friends of mine are nerds, but the cool kind. they do a blog about electronics, design, and the applications thereof (theoretical and actual). it's called delta-sigma (apparently some sort of programmer's engineering term, not the fraternity). check it out, i was surprised how interesting they could make these things i normally don't ever think about (do you know all about the crazy "bone fone?" neither did i). or maybe it's cause i know nick and can picture him looking like a mouse and saying funny things. either way.

MP3:

so i am a big fan of local brooklyn band Parts & Labor. they are an electronically infused rock outfit ("math rock" perhaps, but heavy on the rock part) with none other than Dan Friel manning the little box thing with all the knobs. the boys start their spring 2005 tour this weekend (check the list and go see them!). so in support of their tour, and the fact that i have been sleeping on this post way too long, here is a track off their forthcoming album on Plastic Records along with a slew of other P&L goodness. . .

• Parts & Labor - A Great Divide

Bonus:
four more tracks from other P&L albums + videos here.


buy music, especially independent.

  1. Not to be too anal, but it's an engineering term, not a programming term (lest Nick makes fun of you or your thoroughly interested readers think we're faking it).

  4. BRECHT BRECHT BRECHT. EXCUSE THE TYPO. AND WHILE I'M HERE, HERE'S THE INFO:
    Speak Out: I Had an Abortion
    Gillian Aldrich, Jennifer Baumgardner, Katha Pollitt & Tara Todras-Whitehill. Moderated by Liza Featherstone
    6:00 - 8:00 pm: Photo Exhibition & Reception
    8:00 pm: Film Screening & Discussion
    Media coverage of abortion always focuses on the firestorm of passionate beliefs and politics launched by both sides of the debate. Missing are the voices of the women who have had abortions and there are millions of them. This controversial and powerful documentary by Gillian Aldrich, a field producer for Bowling for Columbine, and Jennifer Baumgardner, co-author of Grassroots and Manifesta, as well as founder of the I Had an Abortion project, features women telling their abortion stories. A photo exhibition by Tara Todras-Whitehill and featuring the women in the film accompanies the screening. All three artists will discuss the project and what it might mean to the future of abortion rights if women speak out once again. "I had an Abortion" t-shirts -- which have sparked a lively, nationwide debate even within the pro-choice movement -- will be on sale at the event.
