The Flaming Lips to Cover Dark Side

The Flaming Lips will record a reworked version of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. The group first revealed the news at a Q & A held at the promotional “pop-up” Flaming Lips Embryonic store the band erected in Los Angeles last week and confirmed the details on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic. The members of Stardeath and White Dwarfs—including Lips leader Wayne Coyne’s nephew Dennis Coyne—will collaborate with the psychedelic band on the project, while the Toronto-born singer Peaches will perform on “The Great Gig In The Sky.” In addition, Henry Rollins will provide voiceovers throughout the project.

Wow, that is the celsoot song!And the ad next to it is for an “Underwater acoustic modem.” Maybe that’s how they sent the video to the surface? But how did the cat draw all those pictures?

I can rbeemmer a few years back when hacking a person computer was wrong in so many levels. Why not today? Is it ok to do it? It sure sounds like it.I use to do computer repairs. And I rbeemmer that not just any one had a desktop, even less a portable laptop. Computers are a new thing to consumers, and technology will keep it that way. One of the main problem that customers had when they approached me for repairs, aside from the usual (how do I turn it on, I already pushed the on button on the TV) was ?my computer is slow and windows keep popping up?.People just kept clicking the wrong sites. I recommended AOL because of its ?safer? community, but that did not seem to help some of my customer when the got infected with BlackIce for clicking on the wrong image or song.Oh that Trojan was spectacular, it gave just about complete control on the client computer, and I believe if memory serves me right, you could even fry the motherboard by accessing the bios and changing the voltage on the CPU. But this is a sad story better told some other time. Now that was bad?very bad?Ok, now there is software like PCAnywhere or LogMeIn which do exactly the same thing, but is accepted. It is ok to spy on the client computer with their permission. So it is really not my fault if they failed to remove it after it?s no longer needed or did not set a password right?What I am trying to get at is?well I don?t know, but I think it is invasion of privacy.They can always do it like at my place of work. It pop ups a legal disclaimer when you log in to the domain. It boils down to: Its ok for us to monitor your station?
