Check out this awesome video by El Cuarterto de Nos:

I've been really enjoying videos with strong typographic elements lately (starting with the original, of course, Bob Dylan's "Homesick Subterranean Blues")... just something about that style which really draws me in. Then again, this should be no surprise if you look at the pseudo logos I create for my own personal projects.

One thing I noticed while watching that video is that it must be really easy to be a Spanish rapper - I mean, how hard is it to rhyme? You just pick a bunch of verbs and conjugate them into the same tense. Easy!

(It occurs to me I should start wrapping my entries in fake HTML to indicate levels of joking - I don't think people understand that literally 99.99% I write in this journal is tongue-in-cheek and sarcastic - somebody might really think I'm an asshat! And that'd be <SUPER SARCASTIC>nothing</SUPER SARCASTIC> like real life (<serious>I'm actually kind of a dick in real life</serious>)...

I bought their Raro album on iTunes (for some reason, I could purchase each individual track w/o DRM, but not the whole album??), and I think it just has the coolest album cover:

The whole album is pretty nice, too. A nice change of pace from my normal American pop music listenings.

I found your's and Aaron's blog when I was researching a job I heard about with MindTouch and ended up subscribing to both. I didn't apply for the position cause I need more experience, but it seems like you guys have a great place to work and are doing some pretty cool stuff. Maybe a position will open up in the future that I'm qualified for and I can apply then.

You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ')' at line 1

that's what it says when i try to enter a comment in the previous entry with House.

I think you meant to say Bob Dylan's
Subterranean Homesick Blues, not Radiohead's Homesick Subterranean Alien. I only know this cause I couldn't find Dylan's version of Alien on youtube so I had to wikipedia it. You can view Dylan's Blues at And you are right, the El Cuarterto de Nos video is pretty awesome.

You're absolutely correct - I meant to write Blues, not Aliens (this is fixed now).

Notice you're from SD - how'd you stumble across my blog?
