Daft Punk – Get Lucky – Full Version, Radio Edit

A couple of days after some fake leaks, looped fan-made edits, and the teaser trailer for Get Lucky, the first single off Daft Punk’s new album Random Access Memories, it finally leaked onto the Internet. The song is about 4:06 and includes the funky goodness of this whole track. The single will release this Friday, and I’ve been playing it non-stop for 30 minutes. It definitely beats the 1 minute promo.

Diva Plavalaguna’s Song From The Fifth Element

I saw this on the Internets over the weekend and it reminded me that I haven’t seen this movie in a couple of years. I’ve seen it a lot though, enough to know most of the plot elements. This song is hauntingly beautiful. It was sung by the Albanian soprano Inva Mula.

What’s in a Name Part 2 & 3

Errol Morris’ What’s in a Name parts 2 and 3. It’s definitely an interesting series of essays, as people in Chinese cultures have a very different way of approaching names. While most of them never change their family name, a lot of them change their English name and Chinese first name, even at a very young age. I’ve had grade 1 students change their names very suddenly. It’s rarer to change your Chinese first name, but it happens often compared to what I’m used to.
