No good reason to be up at this hour

And listening to the MP3s found at this page certainly isn't a good reason:


Background? Do you need background? Maybe you were backpacking through Iberia, Siberia, Yucatan, and the collective -stans during 2001 and 2002, and weren't around when "Zero Wing"'s intro got turned into the ubiquitous video and subsequent phenomenon. Suffice it to say, it was a flash in the Internet pan, an example of quirky individualists behaving in a collective non-individualist fashion.

But even though the phenomenon has come and gone, I still kinda dig the MP3 I downloaded once. I went to the most authoritive website I could find for this kind of thing, but I could not find the Laziest Men on Mars' recording of "Invasion of the Gabber Robots", the music behind the first of the two videos. I did find the Karaoke versions linked at the top of this ramble, but that's not quite the same. (The Beatles one is a laugh, and I kinda dig the "Smells Like Teen Spirit" one, as well.)

Long story short (too late) - I could not track down a place on this so-called "Internet" where I could get a copy of the MP3 I was looking for. So I got up and found my MP3 player that I was using in 2001, and (sure enough), it was still there. Dammit, people - isn't the whole point of the Web that I won't have to leave my chair?
