  • i've been much more busy with work the past few days than i expected at the start of the week. something like 18 hours more. so i'm somewhat behind on other stuff..
  • new this month (in this country): comedy central extra. i believe they started november 1st, but i only found out about that the day before yesterday. a very quick look at their programming schedule shows they are airing both the daily show and the colbert report between 10 and 20 times a day. the same episode that many times a day seems a little odd. what's good is that an episode is first aired only 18 hours later than the US broadcast, or at least that is what they claim.
  • i was looking this up for someone, but perhaps you are interested in it too: R.E.M. on america, politics, and why they decided to split.. (video)
  • it's entirely possible you've never heard of the feelies. after a 19 year break, they came back this year with a new album which will surely end up in my albums of the year list. you can listen to one of the songs on this SoundCloud widget below, originally shared by their record label. OK it's also a little test to see if embedding this sort of thing here still works..

yes it does, but i did have to manually edit the lj-embed bit since only the part of the orange button on a grey background showed up first.

Hallo Tamar. Ik heb dus geprobeerd ook zo'n SoundCloud ding op mijn journal te plaatsen (met een song van dEUS) maar kreeg zoals je al zegt alleen die oranje button. Ik zou het lief vinden als je me wilt vertellen hoe ik er hem helemaal op kan zetten. O en nog bedankt voor het adden.

ik weet niet precies hoe je code van die site eruit ziet maar maak van het gedeelte dat LiveJournal toevoegt, <lj-embed> bijvoorbeeld eens <lj-embed width="500">

Bedankt! Het werkt!
Ik wil je nog vragen, commentaar in het Nederlands vind je toch goed in je journal?

natuurlijk! met belgen en nederlanders praat ik hier vaak engels, met het idee dat anderen dan ook kunnen lezen wat we zeggen. maar je mag ook gewoon nederlands praten hoor..
