What do you have playing on your CD player/MP3 player?

Sladists are media maniacs...I mean lovers. Movies, Books, Music & Sports are all here.

Been listening to the new Weezer album.
Nothing’s so loud
As hearing when we lie
The truth is not kind
And you’ve said neither am I

Just heard a track from the new Weezer on my way home and it was not bad.

The Tragically Hip, Locked In The Trunk of A Car is currently on my MP3. I love that song!

I've not got the book, and as a rule not even a Chrichton fan!, I was downloading a John Sandford 'Prey' audio-book' and copped afore chap as well. Interesting story though.

In the Nevada desert, an experiment has gone horribly wrong. A cloud of nanoparticles -- micro-robots -- has escaped from the laboratory. This cloud is self-sustaining and self-reproducing. It is intelligent and learns from experience. For all practical purposes, it is alive.

It has been programmed as a predator. It is evolving swiftly, becoming more deadly with each passing hour.

Every attempt to destroy it has failed.


And we are the prey





From Publishers Weekly :
The concept of nanotechnology can be traced back to a 1959 speech given by physicist Richard Feynman, in which he offered to pay $1,000 to "the first guy who makes an operating electric motor... which is only 1/64-inch cube." Today the quest is to make machines that would be about 1,000 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair. Enter Jack Forman, a recently unemployed writer of predator/prey software, whose nearly absentee wife, Julia, is a bigwig at a tech firm called Xymos. When a car accident hospitalizes Julia, Xymos hires Jack to deal with problems at their desert nanotechnology plant. The techies at this plant have developed nanomachines, smaller than dust specks, which are programmed with Jack's predator/prey software. Not only is a swarm of those nanomachines loose and multiplying, but they appear to be carnivorous. The desert swarms are the least of Jack's worries, however, as the crew inside the plant are not entirely what they seem. Like Jurassic Park, this "it could happen" morality tale is gripping from the start, and Wilson's first-person reading as Jack sets the pace. His confident, flinty voice and his no-nonsense delivery makes this a solid presentation of a high-speed techno-thriller. Crichton gives the audio an air of sobering authenticity by reading its cautionary foreword himself.

Just bought Pearl Jam's new one, Backspacer. Heard a track on the radio a while back (Just Breathe) and thought I'd pick it up when I saw a copy. The meeting of funds, thought and CD on shelf can take a long time to happen, but I'm glad it eventually did. Outstanding, and I'm not normally much of a fan.
For your consideration, here's a link to an almost perfect live rendition of the track that made me buy the CD:

In other news...
The new Madness CD's pretty good, too.
And I've unknowingly copied steelclaw32 wholesale by buying my first audiobook. A Michael Crichton, no less: State Of Fear. A colleague has more of these on his iPod than music, for that long commute to work. Taking his lead for the long drive at the weekend is working out pretty well so far.

I may just have to get that one as well. I haven't heard or read the last two Crichton books. I recall him mentioning State of Fear.

Actually I've been buying and downloading audiobooks more lately than I have music . . . I bought another iPod for my growing collection - 160 Gb. - that will be able to store everything I already have plus more additions to my growing audiobook library . . . audiobooks take up more space than eBooks do . . . but I read eBooks on my iTouch and listen to them on my iPod . . .

And raasnio - may I suggest that you listen to Crichton's book NEXT in audio format? I found it very entertaining . . .
