Recomendations from the Net for Now

This week's recommended media is dedicated to lone parents everywhere. After one week of caring for two children, ages 3 and 8, I am in awe of anybody who manages such a life by themselves. I believe we should have a week each year dedicated to lone parents, where public transport is free for people who are raising children alone, as well there could be theater, music and other cultural and even sporting events where lone parents get cheaper (or free) entry and child minding is free. Any town or local government that implemented Lone Parents Week would be setting a standard for the world to follow.
And now for a few online media pieces that I thought help me get through this difficult week:

Predating their recently issued eponymous LP on Dekorder by four years, this blink-and-you-missed-it 50 copy cassette by Finnish freak folk/freak out operatives Jan Anderzen (Kemialliset Ystavat, Avarus, Tomutonntu etc) and Jani Hirvonen (Uton, Aan, Last Night On Earth) finds these two initiating a typically (if enjoyably) bedragged pseudo ritualistic trawl through wheeze, twang, rustle and stumble on their way toward heavy lidded enlightenment.

Six Albums of Studio and Bootlegs by Syd Barrett
Six albums of bootleg and studio material by the late Roger 'Syd' Barrett. Opel was the original lp with left overs from the Barrett and Madcap sessions and is extended with more extra tracks. The 5 song John Peel Session does not add a lot to it but it's nice enough for those who need more. Magnesium Proverbs is a bootleg with singles and takes from Pink Floyd and Syd Barrett solo. Quality is not always good so it is mostly a listen for the diehard Syd Barrett fans.

Why Google’s book deal is such a big deal
If you want to search for PDF-files containing out-of-copyright books, go to the advanced search form and by click on the “Full view only” radio button before entering your search terms. Once you select a book from your results, you’ll see a “Download” button on the right side of the page. The result pages also have a pull-down menu that lets you select this option.
