Scorpio

Aaron Duran, ladies and gentlemen

Here's one review I wanted to share that Aaron Duran, the guy who's letting me write for him, wrote about a new Nightmare Before Christmas music tribute:
You ever stop and think what would happen to Goths and stores like Hot Topic if Johnny Depp, The Crow, or The Nightmare Before Christmas never existed? I’m picturing some Bizarro version of It’s a Wonderful Life, except every time Trent Reznor screamed, Clarence would get a new cut.
The album is a collection of covers of not just Danny Elfman's songs, but also his score pieces, and Duran has thoughts about them all.

Excelsior! (Uh-huh, I'm sufficiently geeky to want to close with that.)
Blow My Mind

This happening to anyone else?

Weird thing on my LJ this morning: When I go to my friends page, the heading at the top of my browser window only briefly has my Friends Page title ("Entertain Me!!!") on it; it then resets to
http: // play.dipdive.com/i/4172
(spaces put in to prevent making it a link)

I Googled "dipdive," and I got links saying it's a mobile, Blackberry-related social network (currently hosting a lot of election-related songs) being backed by singer will.i.am. It's the first I've heard of it. It only seems to be affecting my Friends page, but is it affecting wnywhere else?

I'm viewing it on IE, by the way.

Post-noon: I figured it out. One of my friends posted a Dipdive-hosted video (that wii.i.am song, in fact),and my computer was having trouble loading it. No biggie. (Yes! Nothing's wrong!)
