Re: Cerulean Crayons - post-rock

I know you, Jesse, have already noticed that my solo piano album is out, and I hope you weren't too let down! :) For anyone who missed it however, here it is. It's not Cerulean Crayons anymore, but rather a solo piano EP. Hopefully it will be of some interest. Just like with Cerulean Crayons, it's p...

Re: 1312: "Haskell"

This is silly. Haskell is one of the best programming languages around and a wonder to work with because you're focused on problem solving instead of introducing loop counters, indices and other semantically irrelevant lines of code. The type system alone makes Haskell great. It's not the right lang...

I'd definitely check out the first Sun Kil Moon album.

For anyone who didn't notice: the trailer for Gears of War 3 features one of Mark Kozele...
