Positive tension

Filed under: Music — Thomas @ 10:27


is when you like a CD so goddamn much that you have a really hard time bringing yourself to stop playing it for 10 minutes so you can rip it in sound-juicer, so you can copy it to your N800 and listen to it all the time on the way home.

Yes, finally a new album knocked Bloc Party's latest off of my all-day-long playlist, delivering me from my nightly wake-ups with mr. Party's tunes in my head.  The new album is Mintzkov's second (ignoring the name change) album, 360°.

In unrelated news, I finally took the time to update to WordPress 2.1.2.  I still think that hacking on websites has a non-flow-inducive aspect to it, but at least now with my setup where I commit to an svn dev branch until I'm happy, then svnmerge to the www branch, and having auto-updates on commit, it is bearable.  Bearable enough to fix 100 XHTML validation errors in one session.

As a side effect, comments should now be possible here.  Let's see if I can keep the spam out this time around.


  1. Yay comments finally!

  2. I thought this was going to be about the great Bloc Party song “Positive Tension”.

  3. Just make sure you enable akismet, brings down the amount of spam to somewhere very close to zero. Given that you use wordpress, it’s probably one of the best ways to spend the next 30 seconds :-).

  4. Menomena. Run, don’t walk to check them out if you haven’t already. Friend and Foe will make you wonder why you wasted all that time listening to the two albums you listed.

  5. Ruben, don’t worry. It was the number one reason why I upgraded in the first place, so I would have better spam protection and could actually enable comments again. Without it I get 400 spams on here a day.
