The Great Apple Snow Leopard Give Away

leave a comment

CNET News reported  yesterday that Apple is giving away Snow Leopard to boost iCloud migration, which is true of you’re a MobileMe user who hasn’t taken the Lion plunge or haven’t yet upgraded to iCloud.

Note the screenshot below. All you have to do is log in to your un-upgraded MobileMe account where you will be offered a free SL upgrade.

Cheers!

Illinoize (The Sufjan reMix Tape)

Illinoize, the Sufjan mix tape

Illinoize, the Sufjan mix tape

Yeah, I am sitting at home wondering when the next Sufjan Stevens disc is going to drop. No, it hasn’t dropped yet. In fact, as far as I can tell, it’s nowhere on the horizon. And yet, there is a faint hope…

Montreal-based producer Tor has put together a free Sufjan mix tape, based on samples taken from Sufjan Steven’s Illinoise and two other Sufjan discs.

Here’s the scoop from Tor’s site:

Illinoize is a free remix tape put together by Montreal-based producer Tor, sampling songs from multi-instrumentalist and indie hero, Sufjan Stevens. Tracks are sampled from his 2005 LP Illinoise, as well as 3 of his other albums, ‘A Sun Came’, ‘Seven Swans’ and ‘Songs for Christmas’, blending Sufjan Steven’s acoustic guitar, piano and horns with MC’s Aesop Rock, Big Daddy Kane, Gift of Gab (Blackalicious), C.L. Smooth, Outkast, Brother Ali, and Grand Puba.

It’s a great remix and best yet, it’s free, so go get it.

Donate a buck or two of you really like it.
