Albums I want that I can't afford right now

Funny thing about being on a budget, you can't buy what you want. So, if either of my readers wants to buy me something, here's a few suggestions:

Anything by Matt Maher
Imogen Heap - Ellipse (see previous post)
Regina Spektor - Far
Mute Math - Armistice
MGMT - Oracular Spectacular

Imogen Heap

I've known about Imogen Heap for a while now, but have never listened to a full album...until now. Very, very good. Listen below. Many of the tracks can be found via elbows.

Compendium o' Links

I know I haven't posted in a long time. So, since I have nothing meaningful to say, here's a bunch of cool links.

[Via Dubious Quality] is a performance by sand artist Kseniya Simonova in Ukraine's Got Talent. It's absolutely incredible. Read the back story here.

[Also via Dubious Quality]I wish I had thought of this for our daughter.

[Also via Dubious Quality]Root Bridges.

A 3000 year old egyptian sculpture looks exactly like MJ. I thought this was an onion story at first.

The definitive Bush v. Obama comparison.

Some humor, juvenile, but still humor.

[via JH] Mmmm...pancakes

[via tiwyf]Congestive heart failure #1, #2, #3, #4, and #5.
