Music Monday: The Hard Drive Crash Edition 
19th-Mar-2012 10:06 am
katarina, doom
So, I'm spending my Monday morning reinstalling my applications and redoing my system configuration on my work computer after a catastrophic hard drive failure on Friday afternoon. Musically speaking, nothing goes with catastrophic hard drive failures better than Finnish heavy metal band, Mirzadeh. (Yes, a while back I posted a video by a French band with a Finnish name. Now I'm posting a video by a Finnish band with a Persian name. Clearly I need to find an Iranian metal band with a Welsh name next. I'm still working on that.)

Mirzadeh's vocals are in a style that I don't normally care much for, but the music is so catchy that I cheerfully put up with the guy screaming in Finnish.

I'm putting the video under a cut because the band are all done up in corpsepaint, and the sight of four Finns made up to look like second-rate zombies might be too much for some on the f-list on a Monday morning. (Normally I hate bands in corpsepaint. On these guys, I think it looks adorkable. Though I imagine that "adorkable" was not really the effect they were going for. Sorry, Mirzadeh.)

I am shocked, *shocked*, to hear that you don't have a virtual desktop.

OK, so not shocked at all really. But when my company-provided box died I went virtual and haven't regretted it.

Actually, I'm shocked that I don't have a virtual desktop, really. I'm kind of awkwardly half-virtualized at the moment - I have my DITA authoring tools and the client for the content management system installed in a VM, but everything else is decidedly non-virtual.
