Puscifer, The Mission

Maynard James Keenan is a self-professed nerd, despite the stylings of his Tool and A Perfect Circle projects. So when he’s free to let loose on a solo project without the expectations that those two bands come with, he really lets loose. The first sign of this is the fact that “Puscifer“, as a “band”,… Read more »

Blondie “Performs” Live on Dutch TV

Blondie performing “Denis” on Dutch TV I love this video of a live “performance” by Blondie of the song “Denis” on a Dutch TV program from, I would think, 1978. I don’t know what the story is here, but there’s something appealing about seeing Debbie Harry just stand dead still while multiple televisions around her… Read more »

New Jahtari Dubs for the 8-Bit Minded

Well, this was a pleasant surprise for a rather cool November afternoon: Bookmat has not one but two new Jahtari releases available for purchase and download. These came as a complete surprise, partly because Jahtari does a poor job with their site: not only was there no word that these were coming, but there still… Read more »

Videos of the Decade, By Way of Delicious

Examples of fungicides include hexachlorobenzene, organomercurials, pentachlorophenol, phthalimides, and dithiocarbamates. Do not use fungicides developed for outdoor use in any indoor application, as they can be extremely toxic to animals and humans in an enclosed environment. When you use biocides as a disinfectant or a pesticide, or as a fungicide, you should use appropriate PPE, including respirators. This section presents remediation guidelines for building materials that have or are likely to have mold growth. The guidelines are designed to protect the health of cleanup personnel and other workers during remediation. Urologic examinations usually do not reveal a specific etiology for urethritis. A four-glass Meares-Stamey lower-urinary-tract localization procedure (or four-glass test) might be helpful in localizing pathogens to the prostate ( 255). WBCs per high-power field were detected in expressed prostatic secretions ( 256). Referral to a urologist should be considered for men who experience pain for more than 3 months within a 6-month period. Gonococcal urethritis, chlamydial urethritis, and nongonococcal, nonchlamydial urethritis might facilitate HIV transmission. In short, artificial life is central to our attempts to understand who we are. A display of two outflow water clocks from the Ancient Agora Museum in Athens.

This ensures I remain in touch with the realities of frontline practice and helps me deliver my civil service role and retain clinical credibility. I remain an active researcher, teacher and lecturer on subjects such finasteride as falls and bone health, health services for older people, age discrimination and healthcare ethics and law. I am excited to see how increasingly healthcare is harnessing this astonishing potential for healing. I have always wondered how unhappiness gets into the cells, and why exercise, meditation and a healthy diet impact so powerfully on mood and morbidity..

Antville’s list of the best videos of the decade, no doubt a precursor to many “of the decade” lists over the next two months, is a good one. I don’t have too many complaints about the picks themselves, though I would contest their placement. For what it’s worth, this would have been my number one… Read more »

Bleeping Beats B(eep)-Side by nerdm Here’s a B-Side I made to the previous Bleeping Beats mix that includes some new stuff, some stuff I couldn’t really fit in previously, a few goofy things, and some live performances that are a little raw and rough around the edges, all wrapped in a slight early-90s arcade vibe….
