NOTE: This Round #2 was initially supposed to be much more comprehensive than the state its in right now. Due to an insane amount of activity and involvement Andrew participates in daily the amount of posts Im able to sort through and archive is extremely time consuming! My secret is the use of the application Google Reader along with Google Alerts. Basically whenever certain terms like Andrew W.K. is posted somewhere online Google notifies me. These articles can build up into the thousands! Although this article consists of only 1/3 of the news thats happened since December I figured if I didnt post it now I would just keep getting further and further behind, so here it is.

HELP ME! The official AWK website does not post every bit of news. Although this task would be impossible to accomplish to its fullest, a worthy attempt is the technique I described above. However, time constraints wont allow me to do it all by myself! So, using Google Readers bundle I can share these awk news feeds with you! Help me with Around The World With AWK #3 and dig up the most recent AWK news with Google Readers bundle feature by sending me an email to [email protected]. Youll be the first to get any news about AWK!

I know what youre thinking This video isnt any better quality than a YouTube video! Youre right! The video above is a preview from the source. The download is 200mb of high quality video of some heavy duty piano playing. Thanks to joefrederick yall can now enjoy!

Also if you enjoy watching it, listen to it anytime you want! Get the mp3 extracted from the video. Which is the highest quality version to date (the music video version has the classical piano outro at the end).
