I was writing a long, interesting article about the Microsoft and Yahoo! merger, with several interviews from insiders at both companies, but I'm already sick to death of hearing about it. So I quit! Instead, here's Brent "Data" Spiner's rare 1991 album, "Ol' Yellow Eyes Is Back."
Don't miss "It's a Sin (To Tell A Lie)," with background vocals by The Sunspots -- Jonathan "Riker" Frakes, Michael "Worf" Dorn, LeVar "Reading Rainbow" Burton, and Patrick "I've Seen Everything" Stewart.

This album is extremely rare, and I believe this is the first time the MP3s have ever been publicly available on the Web. (I don't even see it on the torrent trackers.) The cheapest copy of the CD on Amazon is $89.99, but you can generally find it on eBay in the $40-50 range. Since the album's out of print, I hope Brent won't mind that I'm releasing it here.
February 7 Update: Less than a week ago, a couple days before this post, Brent Spiner launched his new personal site and released a video on YouTube about his long-awaited concept album, Dreamland. Inspired by Broadway musicals and old-fashioned radio shows, the album is available for pre-order on Brent's site. Did I mention it features the voice acting of Mark Hamill?
