Changes of pace [Open Thread]

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at April 19, 2005 5:51 PM

Another late open thread... I was busy preparing a midterm review, and then I was seized with a fit of irreligion. I should give Christianity a break, and go beat up on Hinduism or something. Or maybe just review the new Fischerspooner album.

Fischerspooner: Odyssey: Fischerspooner's debut #1 was a CD I really liked the first few times, but then many of the tracks became tiresome astonishingly quickly. I gather that this was not an uncommon reaction. Therefore, it was a relief that Odyssey isn't more of the same. The sound hasn't changed drastically, but enough that it sounds new and exciting, and brings back the otherworldly sense that the original album had before it became too familiar. Will this one get old, too? Maybe, but for the moment I'm enjoying it. "Cloud" captures what I like about Fischerspooner pretty well.


Somebody said this in my office today. It was with respect to a random-walk problem (Zif, it was a more general form of the wandering drunk problem from your homework a while back)...

"One should not get drunk in more than two dimensions."
