Looking for a bit of music

Last night at Embers, I heard this awesome song, but since it didn't have any lyrics, I have no way to find out what it is. (Asking the DJ only occurred to me after leaving. *headdesk*) Anyway, it kinda sounded like bagpipes but with a definite techno/industrial beat. Anyone know what it was?

Thanks in advance!

*Also, there were no lyrics.

Thank you to everyone! It was Corvus Corax "Filii Neihardi" as someone replied. Thank you!

because you haven't steered me wrong yet.

I'm tired of freaking out almost every day due to the spiders that find their way into my place. And since I'm not going to just "get over it"... I'm wondering have any of you used Hedgeballs with any luck? Most of the websites I've looked at say they keep bugs away, but I've heard they'll repel spiders too.

Also, I know "they" say keep bugs away and you'll keep the spiders away... but I haven't seen a single bug in here in months... but deal with fairly large spiders all the time. Any other suggestions on keeping them away?

Note: Our house is clean... so suggests like "wash your dishes" really won't be of any assistance. Feel free to waste your time though. :)

Oh, and for those of you who commented on my "should I bring a cheat sheet to my interview" post last week... thank you! I <3 you DP.

U.S. invades Poland!

Er... Pakistan. Looks like Bush couldn't resist starting one more war before he leaves office.

Two weeks ago: The Leader approves the invasion of yet another former ally. Pakistan, as you may recall, was one of our strongest allies in the War on Terruh.

Twelve days ago: Pakistan responds by ordering its troops to fire on any U.S. forces crossing its borders.

One week ago: Unconfirmed rumors circulate about several U.S. incursions into Pakistan resulting in exchanges of fire.

One hour ago: A U.S. military spokesman confirms Pakistani troops fired on American forces inside Pakistan.

Oh, and there's one other minor detail you may have forgotten: Pakistan has nukes. They may not have a delivery system that threatens the continental U.S., but if we push them into an alliance with Russia, they might as well. They could also provide nuclear weapons expertise to less stable nations, or even directly to terrorists.

Bush is an absolute madman. He's proven that he's no lame duck; he can still make things worse. We need to get impeachment back on the table, or start looking at other alternatives to remove him or his influence over us. We need to send a strong message to the candidates that we will accept nothing less than a 180° reversal of Bush's foreign policy.

Angry letter to the city from a good Portlander.

And it's open for comments... I am curious if anyone is on her side? If you leave her car sitting on NW 23rd for 2 weeks and have a permit, should you not be ticketed? (The registration tags seems to be another issue. Maybe.) I don't own a car -- or have a driver's license -- so I'm really not one to judge... except snarkily...

JPMorgan to buy Washington Mutual

Washington Mutual, the country's largest thrift - hard hit by the housing meltdown - is to be acquired by JPMorgan Chase, Wall Street Journal reports.
http://money.cnn.com/2008/09/25/news/companies/JPM_WaMu/index.htm?postversion=2008092519

JPMorgan Chase & Co. is close to a deal to acquire most of the operations of beleaguered thrift Washington Mutual Inc., according to a report Thursday in the Wall Street Journal. JPMorgan (JPM, Fortune 500) has scheduled an investors conference call for 9:15 p.m. ET. Federal regulators have helped broker the deal, the Journal reported. Calls to JPMorgan and Washington Mutual seeking comment were not immediately returned. The FDIC declined to comment. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. has taken over 12 banks so far this year.

Any other guys collect dolls?

Any DP'ers collect 3 3/4" Gi Joe/Cobra figures? I'm having a hard time tracking down the latest waves...I "collect", ie buy then open, almost exclusively Cobra figures, and all I see at Fred's & Target are 12 Wild Bills. Which screams to me that I'm not the only collector around here. Any less-picked over stores I should hit up? I just want to army-build so I can make cool Cobra parade dioramas.

free mattresses

I have two mattresses I want to give away -- do any of you need a mattress?

1) Overstuffed queen futon, very comfortable. Has tea-colored stain on it, which was there when my mom bought it. Could be very nice bed or couch.

2) King mattress, no box springs. Maybe it would be better w/box springs, but anyway, maybe it could be like a playing-videogames-in-the-basement mattress.

If you respond fast and live in a fairly central location I might be able to bring them to you with a truck.

Used Taekwondo gear

My seven year old is testing for her orange belt tomorrow.  She's very excited.  Once she earns her orange belt she'll need sparing gear.  The sparing gear costs $320 (gag, gasp!).  Any leads on where I can get it used in Portland?

reminder software

so i have a pretty bad memory and i'm currently using my outlook at work to remember important things, but some things fall on a weekend and i don't have or want outlook at home and the writing on my hand always washes off too soon.

so. what software exists for the purpose of reminding oneself of things? i'd prefer something that doesn't use a lot of memory or have a lot of extra features. i just want reminders to pop up on my computer every so often. do you have something you use for this that you can recommend?
