Sometime ago I had dissed Furtado as a lightweight popstress. Well, OK, I WAS WRONG. Apparently, not only does she have killer looks but she can sing pretty darn well if the songs are right. Check out the cover of Gnarl's "Crazy" and of course "Maneater" from her new album "Loose", fish for all on Hype .

How about a new number system?
For multiplication we still need to memorize the multiplication-table...but it is a much smaller and easier one than the decimal.
So let's forget what we know about hours, days and weeks, just leave natural time measurements (day: earth turns round 1 time, month: moon period, year: summer + winter) and we could end up like this: one day has 8 units:
Octomatics I think are a really cool example to show what can be done with simple visual concepts and alternative thinking. Not that the decimal will be replaced any time soon of course. You can visit Waldeck's site, Infoverse, which has a few more of his research projects (all images posted here are from his site).

Los Super Elegantes
Last night I went to the Los Super Elegantes show, on the Athens Imperial Hotel roof-garden. The show was organized by Locus Athens. I must say I haven't seen such a concert/performance before, and I've been to a LOT of concerts. In the beginning I was a bit wary of their style, but as they carried on with their music, lip-synching to pre-recorded tracks, I got really into it. They acted out some abstract lyrics, which made it quite fun to watch. I'd be curious to see what this art band's music sounds like when you are not watching them live...So all in all, a mighty entertaining evening (thanks to MTH & Sofia).
