CMHWAK Launch Contest Results

The results are in.  I copied the member list to a text file and used to randomize it using atmospheric noise.  #1 means winner, so that makes the winner user "h_crescenzo".  I've sent you a message to get your shipping details, etc.  I hope you don't live somewhere crazy because your name makes it sound like you do.  But I guess I can't be picky.  Everyone else, you can see how close you were to winning in the screenshot.  Sorry that it cuts off partway through, I didn't want to bother making multiple screenshots.  This contest was fun and I'd love to do more.

Revisit: Jupiter Lander - S/T

So I was browsing through my totally OOP record collection (or something) the other day and then I stumbled across this little piece of wonder.

Jupiter Lander is an "old fashioned" emo-band from Leeds, England. I don't know how big and famous they are out there, but whoever hasn't heard them yet really really should. Unfortunately they disbanded in September 2008, but they managed to release a 7" and an EP before their death.
Their music is more towards the "happy" sound, somewhat The Pine-ish. They build up towards a climax, breaks it down into twinkly guitar parts with desperate singing which then builds up towards the end and every instruments just fits perfectly in every tone until they hit the last one. You know, the usual! I love this stuff, and I'd advise everyone who can to buy their 7" if they get the opportunity. It has some sweet artwork as well.

This is their myspace, and check my blog for downloading.
