I'm ripping them into my computer now (Ogg Vorbis, 128K). The set of discs I've rediscovered includes a few interesting and out-of-print items:
- Big Fish Ensemble, "I Hate Parties" (early 90's Atlanta rock band)
- Poi Dog Pondering, "Poi Dog Pondering" (Austin hippie music)
- Various Artists, "No Alternative" (which oddly featured all "Alternative" artists)
- Transona Five, "Duffel Bag" (late 90's Denton, TX trance-guitar rock)
- Cicada Sings, "Lousy Private Fuzz" (early 90's Atlanta bossa nova)
BTW, I'm flying out to Cali early Monday morning for a week at the PalmSource employee compound. While I really like getting to work face-to-face with my coworkers, these trips also remind me of how much I like working from home and how much I like living in Austin, and how grateful I am to have an employer that values me enough to let me do this.
