Incredible Hulk - A waste of time and money!

The new Incredible Hulk movie - supposedly made better than the previous 2003 Hulk movie - was rather disappointing. The acting is ordinary, the effects are nothing to rave about and the ending - as predictable as it can get. The only little part I liked in the whole movie was towards the very end when someone makes a cameo appearance.
All in all, I'd say - GET ME BACK THE 2 HOURS OF MY LIFE I SPENT WATCHING THIS MOVIE!

Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace

That's the name of the latest Foo Fighters album. I highly recommend this album to metal/rock followers. One of the albums from which I liked most of the songs on the first listen itself.

Stripping out vocals from a music track - first attempt

Simple case of a track having vocals at the centre pan - that is, vocal is equally distributed among the right and left channels. The trick is to "subtract" the right pan from the left pan which should effectively remove the voice, if it is equally distributed among both channels. This is not guaranteed to work on all music tracks.

Here's how Megadeth's "A tout le monde" sounds with vocals stripped out as described above - I used Audacity to edit the track. The voice is almost gone, but still some traces can be heard - or is it just my subconscious mind which knows the lyrics well?? You decide.

D A R K

I can lead you down the path and back to life
All I ask is that you worship me
I can help you seek revenge and save yourself
Give you life for all eternity

What is this?

Emptiness

You know there's this feeling of emptiness when your work is taken away from you -
something that has occupied your mind for weeks,
something that has kept you awake at night,
something that has woken you up in the middle of the night with a 'aha! that can be tackled in this way'
and especially when you're so close to finishing that work all by yourself...

Hmm - gravity is all BS - basically earth sucks...
