Hi - Happy to be (new) here. Looks like you have a very broad range of music here. So here's a record, Pan American's "Quiet City".
MP3, 320kbps CBR, no password.
Pan American is Mark Nelson, a member of Labradford. The music is mostly ambient, but with direction, a wide range of acoustic and electronic sounds, and mostly beautiful and mesmerizing. More for dedicated listening than background music.
REQUEST: I seek all work by März. I believe there are two albums, "Love Streams" and "Wir Sind Hier". Thanks.

12:53PM - Quiz: What is this object?
I took this photo outside my home. Slight photoshopping - painterly smoothing (Impressionist plug-in). Custom frame shape. All lines, colours, tones and light are original.
So, what is it?

It's a truck related roadworks along our street. Not sure what it does exactly; looks like it lays pipe. As soon as I saw this parked outside, I knew there was a picture.

10:28AM - Megaslowload?
Hey people, just wondering if anyone else is noticing quite a slow-down of Megaupload's download speed? Not long ago, I used to get >100k/s (I have DSL), but just recently I'm in the 10 - 20k/s range. This is by no means complaining - man, I am just thrilled to be getting music at any speed. Just wondering if I may have a problem on my end. Cheers.
