Rumour: New MacBook Pro?!
So there’s a possibility that there’ll be a new MacBook Pro released tomorrow in conjunction with the Macworld Expo down in San Francisco:http://www.macrumors.com/2010/02/08/current-macbook-pro-models-deleted-from-best-buys-inventory-system-updates-imminent/ Now, I’ve wanted a MacBook Pro for five years, and every time I’ve come across some reason why I shouldn’t - possibility of a new iPod Touch that could come free with a MacBook Pro purchase; possibility of a refresh around the corner; bad reviews of the MacBook Pro that came out. WELL NO MORE!I’m ready, Steve Jobs - I’m ready now! I need you to bring it on! I’ve wanted this for so long.So badly, in fact, that I made a song about it. (Apologies to Alan Menken and EmpireSB on this :P) LISTEN TO IT. NOW. “Part of Your Mac World” Lyrics:Look at this Mac - isn’t it sweet?
Wouldn’t you say my laptop’s obsolete?
Wouldn’t you think I’m that dude who’s needing an upgrade?
Look at its case - it’s aluminum based!
Shiny and sparkly, logo in my face
Looking at me, you think - sure - he’s needing that upgrade!I’ve got music and websites and photos
Freeware to make my graphics galore
You want AVI files - I’ve got twenty
But who cares? No big deal…
I want more…I wanna be where the hipsters are
I wanna feel what a matte screen feels like
Working on stuff with a - MacBook Pro Listening to rumours won’t get you far
I need a laptop with crazy features
Browsing the ‘Net with a - Magic MouseWith the elite, I can’t be beat
I can turn my nose up at the world
I’d be so free
Wish I could be
Part of that worldWhat would I give
If I could chill - over at Starbucks?
What would I pay
To stay unplugged - for seven hours?Betcha they can, just understand
That they don’t need an antivirus
Or blue screens of deathI’m ready to jam with GarageBand tracks
Ready to let iMovie make features
What’s Dashboard, why’s it - how do you say it - rock?When’s it my turn?
Wouldn’t I love - to explore stuff from the Apple StoreNo more PC
Wish I could be
Part of that worldLet me know your thoughts! :D (I know I’m happy with it.)—case p.
Haht in… so haht in hurr… so haht in… OH.
The opening lines of this song almost seem as if Nelly suddenly remembered that he’s supposed to be doing a song as opposed to just sitting around talking about how hot it is.
I remember when this blog used to be active - I used to rely on it daily to get the tunes I hadn’t heard in AGES.

Upular: An “Up” Music Video
This is the kind of stuff that one of my local comic shops posts about on its blog - a music video composed almost entirely of sound bytes from the movie “Up”.
It’s called “Upular”. It’s going on my iPod. IMMEDIATELY.
Trust me. It’s awesome.
Rochester aka Juice - A New Day
My jam of the moment: Rochester - “A New Day”. I only heard this song for the first time at a party last night, and I knew I needed to find out more about it.
Reppin’ Toronto’s Islington/Finch intersection, Rochester’s had a bit of acclaim in our community, and with this, I can see why. This song’s just damn addictive. Was hard for me to believe at first that it came from the T-Dot, but you can hear the influences subtly in the undertones of the rhythm.
Listen, support and give props. I’m probably going to hunt this record down this week.
Since Amazon’s just got more than one million followers on their Twitter feed for Amazon MP3s, they’re giving everyone a free download!
Now I’ve just gotta figure out what song I don’t have and really REALLY want…
Who DOESN’T love “Eye of the Tiger”???
