Nope, they weren’t filming the sequel to Saving Private Ryan, but there was a wacky milatary exhibition going on in the park this morning. It’s not often you are awoken by cannon blasts, and fighter jet flyovers. So I decided to get out of bed and see what the heck was going on. It was a parade of sorts — and a dedication for a new park downtown. The guys to the right are not really in the army (at least I hope that uniforms have been updated within the last 60 years).

Drum loops. I’ve been looking for them today. Virtual Playground is cool — horribly designed, but lets you hear samples from old-school machines via Flash. Loop Labs is a very slick Flash-based thing as well.
