Just thought I’d share an excellent song & video from the band +/- (plus minus). This band includes members of Versus, who were part of the original Ear of the Dragon tour back in the day. And, even further back in the day (back in the day-er?), I went to high school with some of the band members. +/- has an indie/electronica vibe but they are no Postal Service knockoff; they’ve been around since 2001. This video won an award at last year’s San Diego Asian Film Festival.

Speaking of which, this year’s SDAFF is coming up in October. Not sure if I can make it, but the film festival schedule looks fantastic. Of particular interest to me are Air Guitar Nation and West 32nd.

As an aside, I love the +/- website address: plusmin.us — sort of like del.icio.us. I get a kick out of these domain hack web addresses. In addition to the corny humor, sometimes these sites just make sense. For example, whocalled.us is pretty much what it sounds like. According to their site, a person would visit when, “The phone is ringing, and I don’t recognize the number. All Caller ID says is, “NAME UNAVAILABLE”. Please help me figure out who is calling and what they want.”
