Cows With Guns

Monday, September 17th, 2007

“Cows With Guns” is one of those music video clips, that make you smile and make you think at the same time. The music is very good, the Flash animation – too. Actually, yesterday, while checking the immense file archives on my computer, I found this video by accident (downloaded from where? I don’t remember…). I started the video and started humming the tune of this song almost immediately.

Cows with guns

To whom belongs the original of this song, though?… Don’t remember…

PS More info about Cows With Guns (music and animation) – on the final screenshot.
PPS (2007/Sep/17@16:15) I found more info about the singer, who performs “Cows With Guns” – his name is Dana Lyons, he released a whole album under the same name, and it appears, that he’s quite a popular singer:)

Mike Davidson switches from Movable Type to WordPress

Monday, September 10th, 2007

Yep, that’s right.

That Mike Davidson has recently switched from MT to WP.

I see more and more bloggers switching over to WordPress.

A few years ago Movable Type didn’t have rivals. Now things are changing.

Movable Type was free. Then it became paid, unless you wanted to use a free (partially limited in its use) copy.

Then WordPress appeared on the horizon, it was open source, it was free and it became one of the fastest developing blog platforms on the market.

Now and then, I see people switching over from Movable Type, from Blogger/Blogspot and from other blog engines to WordPress.

Now Movable Type released a brand new free version (4.0), open source, too… will this be enough to keep it on par with growing WordPress?

To be frank, I doubt it…

It’s interesting to see how things change so fast on the Internet. And for now, I am a (still) happy user of WordPress… actually, I use it since the creation of my blog optimiced in January this year:-)

Finally (but don’t take this seriously, please, this is just a joke, and an excuse for me to master a bit more Adobe Fireworks;-), here’s a graphical representation of what happens to Movable Type currently:

Rila: The Sun in a Dew-Drop

Monday, September 3rd, 2007

I call it Magic.

Some call it optical illusion, or physics.

The Sun in a Dew-Drop (1)

The Sun in a Dew-Drop (2)

For me, it will be Magic forever, and I’ll never forget this moment, when I first saw this “gem” glimmering in the grass…

Rila mountain is a magic place, I love to return there again and again…
