“All Counterfeit Exists in Asia*”

Friday, August 19th, 2011

Find "Momo" near Zhongxiao Dunhua station in Taipei if you want to buy a tank top. Girls only, it seems.

400-500 TWD if you bargain hard enough

Don Diablo – Hooligans Never Surrender

Sunday, May 3rd, 2009

This is by far his best single, which is a big departure from this usual ‘popped collar’ music that’s kinda douchy with bad backup dancers. Instead, he gives us a police riot, giant luchadors and something that looks like its out of a Chinese Dia De Los Muertos celebration. However, I give him credit for doing so much work as a clearly self-financed guy. On early comments from people saying this video would be super violent, ”I think this video gives a good representation of what goes on in my head when I am asleep, it’s like a drug free LSD trip for pros. Welcome to the future!”

Kurt Cobain Quotable

Just stumbled on this in our archive:

“It’s too bad you don’t have a choice what kind of car – if there was an electric car out there or whatever – alternate fuel car. i’d buy one. no problem. they don’t even give you that option. it sucks” – Kurt Cobain Interview, “Sample Magazine”, November 1991

IN-STUDIO TODAY (FRIDAY) 4PM CST: RON JEREMY INTERVIEW

Friday, February 13th, 2009

Tune into KWUR (www.kwur.com) online (or 90.3 FM as the radio dial flies) for a chat with Ron Jeremy at 4PM CST. At 6PM CST, he will be debating Pastor Craig Gross as part of the Great Porn Debate in Graham Chapel. KWUR will likely cover this event live as well, barring any last-minute legal issues.

Upon hearing the debate news, my brother exclaimed, “they’re letting Ron Jeremy speak in a church??!”

From what I’ve heard, the chancellor is pretty dodgy about sex-related talk on campus. I’m sure he will not be gracing us with his presence, despite Ron Jeremy’s eloquent nature of public speech (must’ve learned it in porn or something…)

p.s. Pastor Gross: friendliest pedosmile ever

Apparently shoveling money into a hole will make it go away

Sunday, February 8th, 2009

oh wait… no it won’t.

Ruckus, the free DRM’d music service on campus will be shut down.

“Ruckus … was brought to the University last Fall after a committee made of students from Student Union (SU) and Congress of the South 40 chose it over four other services.” (Ruckus brings mixed success after one year) Hmm!!! Looks like the university thought it was a good idea to shovel a bunch of money in a hole… DRM was flawed from the beginning, so avoiding investing in it has always been a no brainer. I campaigned against dumping money towards a useless service (Dear ResTech – people are going to file share regardless of how you cripple your own network with port blockages and bandwidth throttles), but Wash U invested anyway.

It’s not like people couldn’t strip the DRM from the music they downloaded in the first place.
