The Secret World of Serge Gainsbourg Paris, May 23, 2007: Carefully avoiding eye contact with the tourists in the street, Charlotte Gainsbourg quickly lets me into the small, graffiti-covered house at 5 bis Rue de Verneuil. Two blocks from Boulevard Saint-Germain in the Seventh Arrondissement, the house is where her father, Serge Gainsbourg, lived and, on March 2, 1991, died at the age of 62. In the days following his death, France went into mourning, fans crowded the tiny street singing his songs, and the women closest to him sat in his bedroom with his body for four days because Charlotte didn't want to let him go. The Man with a Cabbage Head statue in Gainsbourg's house. Except for two pianos which have been removed, the house remains exactly the way it was on the day he died. Upstairs, on the second floor, in Serge's skylit study, there is an IBM electric typewriter even though he never typed, books about Chopin, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Fra Angelico, and Velázquez, and a copy of Robinson Crusoe.

soul sides How To Make Any Pair of Headphones Smart Phone Capable You know what's handy? Devices that perform more than one useful function. Take smart phone headsets, for example: They have headphones which give you the ability to listen to music without annoying your fellow public transit passengers, and the in-line remote and microphone allows you take calls without needing to put your phone to your ear. Unfortunately, the ear buds included on most bundled headsets are almost uniformly low quality.

Here's a recent post I made over at Monkeyfilter and ILM: Some of you may know me from around town; I'm an audioblogger. A musicblogger/audioblogger/MP3blogger is a person who offers interesting, out of print, rare or otherwise engaging music to people at no charge, out of love for the sound and to promote artists that they would like to see get more popular. What you WON'T find in here are file directories without commentary or sites offering a full album that is currently in print. There are more musicbloggers out there than most people would believe; I've been keeping a close eye on the phenomena for about two years and have compiled what I think is the most comprehensive list of musicbloggers yet available. As of May 9th, 2005, all of the following sites are live and have tunes available to listen to. Enough horn-tootin'.
