das_prompt untitled CD from some experimental group called "The Beat Less". The CD has a stark white cover, nonsensical song tiles ("Ob-la-di, ob-la-da", "Glass onion"), and seems to have Marxist leanings (songs about revolution and the USSR), yet it reminds me of a combination of the Posies and Herman's Hermits. These "Beat Less" guys could very well be the "next big thing" if they have cool videos and enough bling-bling.
oneevlktty yummy chocolate raspberry cake presented at the Java Jive on Friday. sorry we ate and ran, but you know how it is...;-)
futch- not technically a birthday present, but sent close enough and thoughtful enough that I'm gonna count it. Video of Oliver Stone's movie "Seizure" featuring Herve villecheze. Haven't had the courage/time to watch this yet, but am looking forward to it.
