Musical InterludeA musical flava to this week's friday five illustrated here by the ever lovely Norwegian pop godesses Ephemera. Anyway on with this week's five:

1. Name one song you hate to admit you like. There are a few songs I keep going back to that are totally hateful but somehow strangely addicitve - witness "I Want To Be A Hippy".

2. Name two songs that always make you cry. I think I'd struggle to find any songs that make me cry - I'm a heartless soul - but Crazy English Summer by Faithless feat. Zoe Johnston has got me through some though times - likewise Gone by Kosheen.

3. Name three songs that turn you on. It was stunningly easy to come up with songs for this question which probably says something about my moral fibre. Anyway, in no particular order: The rather steamy If Loving You Is Wrong by Faithless, the sensual All I Need by Air, and the filthy Roll On by Sneaker Pimps.

4. Name four songs that always make you feel good. The Sea and The Music That We Hear both by Morcheeba, Francisca by Espiritu, Deadweight by Beck. Only one of these is a particularly happy sounding song - the others just hold good memories.

5. Name five songs you couldn't ever do without. Destiny by Zero 7, My Life by Dido, Little Things by Lamb, Sour Times by Portishead and the whole of the Big Calm album by Morcheeba. A slight cheat on the last one but I couldn't choose one track above the rest of the album.

Das ExtrablattThe premise of this pixelated game seems to be to cause as much mayhem & arson as possible - in an anarchistic anti-capitalist kind of a way without getting caught by the police. I say seems as it's all in German and I didn't understand a word but it was pretty easy to get the gist of the thing from the gameplay. Anyway - probably quite a fitting game so close to the 1st May anti-capitalist marches but not really for me as I spent the first of May poncing around the City in a suit doing computer consultancy for insurance underwriters. Some of my IIS configuration was fairly radical though.

The latest computer peripheral is the kitten. Strangely ignored on all the mainstream tech sites and barely touched on within the blogging community, for some time the kitten has been a main-stay of business technology in many a corporate server room, but with the recent emergance of kitten technology into the domestic market things are about to get big for the kitten. Read the first kitten review which includes a handy puppy, baby, video card comparison chart.

Randomly browse the Internet through the medium of jumbled up pictures. Strangely entertaining [nicked from Wastrel Division].

The Cheat
I'm feeling very very tired right now as I've had a busy 2 days at work and I went out for drinks with Andy last night. Anyway while I was out I remembered I had a few pics from my birthday on my camera so here they are along with my "The Cheat" t-shirt which arrived in the post today.

Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions are to be released for viewing at IMAX as well as regular cinemas. Superb news as (a). IMAX is fantastic technology normally let down by really poor films (b). The IMAX at Waterloo is on my way to the station from the office [via Barnski].

Firewalls up everyone - it's the attack of the spam zombies. I'm currently using ZoneAlarm which works very well and what's more it's free - recommended!

A guide to etiquette for visitors to Japan which hopefully will come in useful some day. Going to Japan is the big holiday I keep planning but never actually do - all the more so on a rainy morning in London like today.
