Metamorpho - The Element Man (Rex Mason)

Rex Mason, a soldier for hire, was contracted by Simon Stagg to find the Orb of Ra. When he found it, his cohort, Java, stole it and left Rex in the light of an ancient meteor. This meteor transformed Mason into Metamorpho, the Element Man.

Metamorpho has always been one of my favorite heroes. He’s got that weird/cool 60’s look and interesting powers. So, take a listen to the Metamorpho theme song and let it brighten your day as well.

Metamorpho’s Theme Song

The other day I ran across a CD of music from the Incredible Hulk TV Series from 1977. It’s got the classic intro and the unforgettable end credit theme (the Lonely Man theme). However, tucked away as track 18, could be quite possibly the greatest song I’ve heard in quite some time. I’m referring to the Disco Version of the Hulk Theme and Lonely Man Theme. So, get out your roller skates and bell-bottom pants and enjoy.

It’s been rumored for some time now that EMI would begin to offer DRM free music. It was announced today in London and it sounds like a win-win situation if you’re into downloading music from iTunes.

Songs will be encoded at 256kbps AAC (current is 128kbps) and sold at $1.29 per song, $0.30 more per song than the current price. These will be offered along side the existing lower quality, DRM tracks, and consumers can choose.

Entire album purchases will stay at the same price, but have the higher audio quality and will be DRM free.

I never liked iTunes download quality and the 256kbps will certainly solve that problem. The $1.29 per song is reasonable for per song purchases. The best part of the deal isn’t even highlighted. Entire album purchases will be the same price (usually $9.99), but will now be the higher quality (256kbps) DRM free versions.

I think iTunes and music downloads in general could look very different by the end of this year.
