John Zorn - Painted Bird (2016)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 37:26 min | 86.6 MB
Genre: Avant-Garde Jazz | Label: Tzadik

The fourth CD in a 12-month period by Zorn’s most powerful new ensemble presents nine genre-busting compositions mixing jazz, metal, classical, world music and more. This time their trademark sound is augmented by the ringing tones of Kenny Wollesen’s vibraphone to create their wildest, most insane CD to date. Juxtaposing complex atonal lines, driving vamps, heavy metal riffs, improvisational madness, shredding solos and moments of profound lyricism, The Painted Bird is a surreal and expressive new world in sound. Moonchild meets Nova Express!

Historian Ben Woolley discusses the attitudes to science, experimentation and even death that 18th century painting so perfectly captured in Joseph Wright of Derby's An Experiment on a Bird In The Air Pump. Ben Woolley tells the story of a neglected masterpiece: Joseph Wright of Derby's An Experiment on a Bird in the Air Pump. Until recently, Wright was dismissed by many art critics as a minor provincial but Wright was in fact a virtuoso painter whose scientific paintings give a unique insight into the Enlightenment in Britain. Ben Woolley's deconstruction of this epic painting takes him from Wright's birthplace in Derby to East Germany, where he witnesses a reconstruction of the famous Magdeburg hemispheres experiment. He visits London's Royal Society and uncovers the strange history of animal experimentation in the 18th century.

Raeded by Chuck Palahniuk

At the Rock Creek Lodge Testicle Festival in Missoula, Montana, average people perform public sex acts on an outdoor stage. In a mansion once occupied by The Rolling Stones, Marilyn Manson reads his own Tarot cards and talks sweetly to his beautiful actress girlfriend. Across the country, men build their own full-size castles and rocketships that will send them into space. Palahniuk himself experiments with steroids, works on an assembly line by day and as a hospice volunteer by night, and experiences the brutal murder of his father by a white supremacist. With this new direction, Chuck Palahniuk has proven he can do anything.

Software Exorcism: A Handbook for Debugging and Optimizing Legacy Code (Expert's Voice) by Reverend Bill Blunden
Publisher: Apress; 1 edition (September 22, 2003) | ISBN: 1590592344 | CHM | 3,2 Mb | 376 pages

Software Exorcism: A Handbook for Debugging and Optimizing Legacy Code discusses sociological forces that make it difficult for engineers to do their job. There are plenty of books that discuss "how-to-debug," but these books fall short by mistaking a symptom for the illness. This book takes an unflinching look at true behavioral problems in software engineering. Technological issues are presented in a universal manner that can be appreciated by engineers working on any enterprise platform (not just the flavor of the month). NOTE: The reader should be familiar with C and C++.
