6 GB of Free Music from SXSW2009

The South by Southwest (SXSW) music festival is one of the largest and most popular in the United States. For the fifth year in a row, SXSW has released a DRM-free, RIAA-safe collection of songs totaling 6 GB, which can all be downloaded for free, thanks to BitTorrent.

The torrents can be found here. It's not very often that I use BitTorrent to legally download stuff 😛


Spring is coming?

Happy Chinese New Year! In lunar calendar, spring festival is to celebrate the beginning of spring. I hope spring is really coming, this winter is just too cold.....

Also a clip from China's annual celebration live show. When I was very young, I liked this show very very much. Watching the show together with my family on lunar new year eve is one of the best memories of my childhood. My father used to record it for me and I would watch it over and over again till the next new year. Anyways, this year's show is not bad, I especially like the way they used the big big screen.

It seems I can't embed any video, so here's the link for the clip.
