Aye, and Houston

You know, with sexual obsession, stalking, and rogue astronauts in diapers, there's got to be an "Aye, and Gomorrah" joke somewhere, but damned if I can find it. Can anyone help?



I'm hearing an awful lot of negative stock market chatter recently.

I like it.



Deus. Swoopy electronica, from Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire. Free! Listen to a couple. Torrent the album. Give the man money (I did).

Warning: this is lush, sentimental (if such a word can be applied to electronica), New Age-y stuff. Sort of the musical love child of Kitaro and Enya. If you don't like those two, you won't like this.

Me, I love this.

Discovered via a post to Metafilter about this gushing, breathless video intro to Web 2.0, which uses the album's first track as background music.




HAN


meaning: sell, trade

販売 ==  hanbai == (noun that can take する to act as a verb) sale, selling, marketing
市販 == shihan == (noun) marketing




Left radical is 'shell/money' (貝). Right radical is 'oppose' (反), which acts phonetically to express 'accumulate'. To trade is to 'accumulate money'. At least the trader hopes so. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Opposed to use of money in selling.'
