Magnatune · I was poking around the iTunes radio stations looking for something a little more stimulating than the usual <a href='/ongoing/When/200x/2003/11/02/InternetBrainGoo'>brain goo</a>, and gave “Magnatune Renaissance and Baroque” a try. It’s awfully good music, with the regular interruptions by the musicians plugging their recordings only mildly irritating. And the interruptions worked, convincing me to visit <a href='http://magnatune.com/'>Magnatune online</a>, whose motto is: <b>We’re a record label. But we’re not evil.</b> It looks like a pretty compelling idea, and their music (the Renaissance/Baroque subset anyhow) is pretty sweet. Check it out.

WMDs · Scoble says <a href='http://radio.weblogs.com/0001011/2004/03/06.html#a6841'>he loves</a> Flash developers who have too much time on their hands. I dunno, check out <a href='http://www.chratnox.de/swf/bubble.swf'>Bubbels</a>, courtesy of <a href='http://jwz.livejournal.com/312001.html'>JWZ</a>. This verges on being a WMD, Weapon of Mental Destruction; someone get Don Rumsfeld on the case. On the upside, it can distract a 4½-year-old for a remarkably long time. Grown-ups, of course, are far too sophisticated to blow a whole evening on this thing; or at least to admit it.
