Let’s Get The Party Started

Operating Systems! I love them! You can’t beat that feeling of booting up an installer, blasting the partition table, selecting your applications and watching the estimated time to completion box count down to zero. Exciting stuff. And then you get to try out all the new whiz-bang features. But would I go as far as hosting a party for this process? Apparently you can…..

However, as good as those suggestions sound, I reckon you can spice it up even more by replacing the x-rated beeps in the next clip with – well – use your imagination!

Oh, and if you’re thinking of having balloons at your party, think again! Microsoft pulls Windows 7 balloons from Euro ‘launch parties’ (I guess Europeans can’t be trusted to not go around bursting them and startling guests)

Love Is All That Matters

Whilst searching for some previously un-heard (to me) Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis tracks the other day, I discovered Crash by The Human League. The 1986 album features 3 Jam & Lewis tracks: Human, I Need Your Loving and Love Is All That Matters. Lots of good stuff on the Wikipedia page about this album: 3 of the band members left during/after it’s creation due to conflicts with Jam & Lewis, but it also spawned a US Number One with the track Human.

Anyhow, here is the 3rd single to be released from the album. According to Wikipedia “The music video was a result of Virgin Records beginning to lose faith in the Human League and being reluctant to invest in any further elaborate music videos; so the video was kept deliberately low budget.” The track was written and produced by Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis and carries their distinct sound. Enjoy!
