My blog is becoming a videoblog but I don't mind. This time I'm posting video clips of my favorite band. It's called Foje. This band had won more Lithuanian awards than anyone else. But they separated 10 years ago. People were crazy about Foje. Last three concerts in biggest cities of Lithuania were completely full and the last concert, that was held in Vingis park, in Vilnius, was biggest event ever with about 60000 viewers(that's a lot for a country of 3,5 million people). And I discovered Foje just six months ago because I wasn't into music before, even though I go to a music school.
The four band members:
Andrius Mamontovas - the founder and the leader of Foje(guitar,vocal, sometimes drum). This man creates and plays wonderful music and is full of ideas. Right now he is organising a street music day on the 5th of May,2007 in Vilnius. He offers every musician to go to the streets and just play music. He began his music career with Foje in 10th HS grade in 1982 and when the group separated 14 years later he began his solo career which is not worse than the one with the band.
Arnoldas Lukošius - also known musician, who is famous for his dancing. You may have seen him with LT UNITED if you watched Eurovision 2006. He was the bald guy, who was dancing like crazy. Arnoldas also plays with Andrius in his concerts.
Algis Kriščiūnas - the drummer of the group. Now he's a well known photographer in Lithuania.
Darius Burokas - keyboard. I don't know a lot about him.

Kitoks pasaulis(Different world):

Tušti delnai(Empty hands):

Kibernetiniai žaislai (Cybernetic toys):

Vieną kartą Paryžiuj (Once in Paris):


And one more from Andrius Mamontovas solo. Saulės miestas(Sun city):

I hope you like it even though not everyone will be able to understand those songs in Lithunianian. If you got interested here's a link to Andrius Mamontovas' website.

Coolest desktop environment

Okay, so I have a Mac for more than six months. I thought it was the most beautiful desktop environment. And today I saw a video of XGL & Kiba-dock:

What can I say. It rocks. It has the best features of OS X environment and also adds some more. It's just beautiful. I'm now searching for the info about technical requirements for this beast.
