Era so para dizer que a minha mulher passou o pre-operatorio
a biddar coisas no Ebay porque os gandas malucos do Hospital da
Luz disponibilizam um PC com acesso a web em todas as camas; e
a “coisa” corre Firefox em Linux (com um tema IceWM a la XP a
enganar bem os mais distraidos; nada que um Ctrl+Alt+F1 nao
resolva)

http://www.hospitaldaluz.pt/

Achei que iam gostar de saber… Agora nada de cortar os pulsos
com as chaves de casa ou coisa do tipo so para ir la ver. Eu
volto la amanha e se calhar ja estou com cabeca para screenshots.

1 – Stop hiding who you really are
2 – Start being intensely selfish
3 – Stop following the rules
4 – Start scaring yourself
5 – Stop taking it all so damn seriously
6 – Start getting rid of all the crap
7 – Stop being busy
8 – Start something

Highly recommended. See the flash movie. Read the posters.

I dont know what kind of mushrooms these guys are using
but they are definitely one of the most original bands and
sounds that I’ve heard in the last few years in rock music.
To add up, they have the craziest videos and despite the
guitar sound they are worthy contenders for the title of
Devo for the 21st century. Truly heavy mental music…

Electric Six – “Danger! High Voltage”
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2a4gyJsY0mc
(“Fire in the Taco Bell!”)

Electric Six – “Gay Bar”
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTN6Du3MCgI
(“You’re a Superstar!”)

Electric Six – “Dance Commander”
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vboGDSUGCyY
(“The Dance Commander is ready to sin!”)

Just to seal the deal, they have a great bad taste cover:

Radio Ga Ga – Electric Six
