so weirded out
Have been spending an awful lot of time at Starbuck's lately, as it's the closest source of fast network until my satellite link gets installed (tomorrow!)

As a rule, I do my best to drown out the music (thanks again, elflet, for the Etymotic headphones -- they make great earplugs). But today something soaked through that was SO WEIRD that I not only pulled out the 'phones, but asked ze barista to find out who was playing.

Turns out The Puppini Sisters have covered Kate Bush's "Wuthering Heights". In a close-harmony 40s style.

Oh, it gets weirder. There's even a video, which you'll note--if you're the sort of total nerd that I am--is even faithful to Ms. Bush's early choreography, complete with the googly eyes.

Weirdest music I ever heard in a coffeeshop: live performance of two xylophonists. Playing "Smells like Teen Spirit".

Had to sound clearer than the original, right?

What kind of sat link? I've thought about adding internet to dish and dual-homing here.

Whatever Hughes is selling. It seems to be very popular among other horse-owning rural-living types.

There are other covers on the album, I think, but I've been afraid to touch, lest my head explode.
