More Jimi!

Sometimes we forget to listen to Jimi and need a reminder. ;)

Bob Dylan wrote it. Jimi turned it into magic.

Did you purchase your copy?  ;)

I have purchased more than 1 copy. ;)

They wear out after a while, or you lose them or something like that.

Not that it matters... Jimi is dead.


And immediately afterwards, in my head I hear "Diamonds!... and rust!". :P
(I wore that album out probably 3 times in my skateboarding years. Awesome stuff)

P.S. My favorite cover of "All Along the Watchtower":

Tons more soul and attitude than the album version, in fact that whole compilation had some killer tracks from seminal up-and-comers, scene staples, one-hit wonders and forgettables.
This was the soundtrack for my first year out of high school :Thmbsup:

I recently found this on YouTube quite by accident while looking for something else.

For those of you who are Portal fans - or just enjoy a cute song - here's the famous ending credit number Still Alive sung by the computer-villain GLaDOS and cleverly re-purposed as a tribute to the Amiga computer.

I'm amazed at how well it works in this context. ;D

Still Alive (lyrics)Still Alive
music and lyrics by Jonathan Coulton for Portal

This was a triumph.

I'm making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS.

It's hard to overstate my satisfaction.

Aperture Science
We do what we must
because we can.
For the good of all of us.
Except the ones who are dead.

But there's no sense crying over every mistake.
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.
And the Science gets done.
And you make a neat gun.
For the people who are still alive.

I'm not even angry.
I'm being so sincere right now.
Even though you broke my heart.
And killed me.

And tore me to pieces...
And threw every piece into a fire.
As they burned it hurt because I was so happy for you!

Now these points of data make a beautiful line.
And we're out of beta.
We're releasing on time.
So I'm GLaD. I got burned.
Think of all the things we learned
for the people who are still alive.

Go ahead and leave me.
I think I prefer to stay inside.
Maybe you'll find someone else to help you.

Maybe Black Mesa...


Anyway, this cake is great.
It's so delicious and moist...

Look at me still talking
when there's Science to do.
When I look out there, it makes me GLaD I'm not you.
I've experiments to run.
There is research to be done.
On the people who are still alive.

And believe me I am still alive.
I'm doing Science and I'm still alive.
I feel FANTASTIC and I'm still alive.
While you're dying I'll be still alive.
And when you're dead I will be still alive.

(Still alive.)

Better watch it before they take it down. :) :Thmbsup:
