Pat Cool - Day Break (1973, NL, Canterbury) 
Saturday, September 16, 2006, 04:42 PM - Music, - NL, English
Band from the south of the Netherlands (Limburg, Tegelen).
Typical dutch early 70's sound: jazzy, mainly instrumental with lots of Hammond organ and some flute.
Sounds a bit like Solution, Supersister and Focus (without guitar).
Gé Titulaer sings horrible english, even I can hear that.
But the instrumental parts dominate and they are very good.
By the way, Gé is the father of the Dutch Idols winner 2004 Boris Titulaer.



Gé Titulaer: Keyboards, flutes, vocals
Huub Timmermans: Keyboards
Tom van der Schoot: Bass
Peter Tiggelers: Drums

Side 1:
1 When somedays [8:50]
2 What are you about [4:35]
3 For all who really had to cry [9:40]

Side 2:
1 Day break [4:40]
2 I wish [7:55]
3 There has been a change in me [8:45]

(there are three scratches on 'I wish', sorry for that)

Extra:
The sun king found his kingdom here [4:20] (not my rip, found it somewhere on the web)

Wiel's Web Radio 
Thursday, September 14, 2006, 10:57 PM - Music, English
I have my own web radio.
There is a link between the 'Links' in the right column.
But nobody notices it.
So here the big announcement.



I like sounds.
Don't expect songs or even melody.
All own recordings.

Happy floating...

With this installation you can write a text and then, from the printer outside on the 10th floor, your document swirls into the world.
How many four letter messages will be send?



I programmed this in PHP on a local Apache server for Helmut Smits.
You can try it at the exhibition 'Eastern Neighbours' in Utrecht (NL).
If you take a visit, don't miss the Belarus pavilion ;-)
My fee was a box of local liquor from the Macedonian curator...
(I still don't have it)

Tootootje is a comic strip concerning a car with a human nature.
Tootootje lives in a 2-d world, this world exists of three exact squares (the panels), where the adventures take place.
Tootootje experiences much trouble from its surroundings (hills, trees, traffic signs), of its miniature clone (appropriately indicated with "the small one") or the panels themselves, which play a completely different role than in traditional comics.



Tootootje has been created as from 1973 by Hans Konings and Wiel Seuskens.

Create your own Radio Stations

Pandora is a music discovery service designed to help you find and enjoy music that you'll love.



Pandora takes your input (artists, songs) and feedback ("I like this", "I don't like this") and use the Music Genome Project to create stations that play songs that are musically similar to what you've told them. That's it; only the music counts. Pandora doesn't care how popular the artist is, who's backing them, and which genre bin they usually belong in. Only the music matters.

After a while Pandora will ask for an USA zip code because they are only allowed to serve USA citizens. You can use 10005 for example, the zip code of the New York Stock Exchange.
