Sunday Morning

Saw the MuchMusic thing on No Doubt last night. They really are pretty down to earth as a band, and the boys are a little freaky. Very cool. Then caught the “MTV’s Most Controversial Videos” special on M2. They played the videos that had been previously banned or edited or pulled, including the original unedited version of NIN;s “Closer” (with the “deleted scenes” restored. A *MUCH* stranger video that way, but cool), “Smack My bitch up” (Damn), “Justify Your Love” (which was played once then banned from MTV), and a bunch of others that pushed the edges a little too far.

Some were just freaky (“The bad touch” by the Bloodhound Gang), others chilling (Madonna’s “How it feels for a girl” video), and some containing restored scenes (“Jeremy” by Pearl Jam and the previously mentioned “Closer”).

All in all OK. I should be writing code for a project or two, or trying to finish FFX, but I’m just not motivated right now for some reason….

Oh well, more coffee, while the updates to Red Hat SkipJack (7.2.93) download….

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    That was disturbingly nifty. The CGI was awsome on it.
