Tomorrow night I get to see Mogwai, one of my favorite bands for a number of years, for the first time at Republic in New Orleans. In celebration/preparation I’m compiling a 12 song countdown to the event composed of a number of favorites from their catalog (click track name to listen):

  1. Superheroes of BMX (4 Satin)
  2. Tracy (Young Team)
  3. 2 Rights Make 1 Wrong (Rock Action)
  4. Friend of the Night (Mr. Beast)
  5. Scotland’s Shame (The Hawk is Howling)
  6. Take Me Somewhere (Rock Action)
  7. Cody (Come On Die Young)
  8. Killing All the Flies (Happy Songs for Happy People)
  9. Ratts of the Capital (Happy Songs for Happy People)
  10. Glasgow Mega-Snake (Mr. Beast)
  11. New Paths to Helicon 1 (Government Commissions)
  12. Mogwai Fear Satan (Young Team)

Also found the set list from last night. Hope that we’re treated to something very similar tonight.

What’s 1, 3 and 5 Miles Away From Me?

Last year Mark Martin over at Baton Rouge Advocate for Safe Streets asked me to do a quick GoogleMaps mashup that would allow people to easily visualize how close a lot of the places they travel are to them. It didn’t take long to do, but then it’s languished on my development server since.  So with the idea that those 3 beers I had this afternoon whilst Mark asked if I still had the code actually did some good to the world other than my immediate enjoyment of them, find the link to my 1, 3, 5 Mile Radii Mapper (it really needs a better name; suggestions welcome). Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions about it.
