A very cool website. I like the link "less info"!

Napster - the internet of music

I love Napster - it's the record collection for the internet age.

For example I was just listening to some stuff by Meshell Ndegeocello. She's done a nice version of the Bill Withers track "Who is he and what is he to you".

I thought - "I wonder who else has done that?"

I plug the song title into Napster and get back over 100 versions. I play through these - find a great funk version, and go off to the album that came from (True Funk) and listen to that.

It's "music surfing".

It goes very well with the discography info you find on Wikipedia.

It reminds me of the old NME Encyclopedia of Rock - which I used to read avidly as a geeky teenager - but with the world's largest record collection combined!

We visited these charming villages in Haute-Vars, Provence yesterday.

They are typical old stone "village perches" set in calm mountains full of pines and olive trees.

I particularly liked Bargemon, which has very good, soft spring water. The town itself is full of fountains and little streams of the water, as there is so much of it around.

We were lucky enough to be able to swim in their new municipal pool, which only opened at the end of July 2010!
