I’ve been capturing snippets using Flock this week. Here’s what I grabbed.
1. A new catchy j-pop band:
Stylistically, Love Psychedelico is highly reminiscent of the British Invasion of the late 60s, both members having cited The Beatles and Led Zeppelin as influences, though the influence of American folk and blues are also present (Kumi having claimed Janis Joplin and Sheryl Crow, and Sato Bob Dylan, as influences). To pay tribute to their influences, Love Psychedelico sometimes borrow song titles from the bands that influence them.
2. I’m sure the tone of this survey will be funny to bloggers. I like the way they make it sound like they had to call some bloggers on the phone to figure out what they were and where they were writing:

3. Is Ville Virtanen not good enough :)?
Darude is the name used by Ville Virtanen
4. This would make a good widgetoon data feed for the chumby:
Comics made from WikipediaJohn sez, “Greg Williams takes Wikipedia text and then makes funny, sharing-enabled comics out of them. The skunk one’s my favorite.” Link (Thanks, John!)
