  1. Nude

    Nude is the third studio album by the band VAST, released on Carson Daly's independent label 456 Entertainment. It was released on February 24, 2004 and would be the last album not released on his own independent label, 2blossoms. The album is made up of remastered and remixed demos from the online Turquoise & Crimson releases. A European version of the album was also released, which includes two bonus tracks and a sixteen page booklet housed in a cardboard slipcase. The bonus tracks included are Falling from the Sky and I Woke Up L.A.. With the release of Turquoise & Crimson, the album was made obsolete, because the double album featured all of the songs on Nude, remastered from their unfinished versions released online, and mixed with many new songs. Crosby marketed the album through his own independent label after his unhappiness with 456 Entertainment. He later claimed that releasing Nude on 456 Entertainment was a "disaster, and not a very good idea". During the promotional phase of the album's release, the band played on Last Call with Carson Daly and sung their single "Thrown Away".

The New Hacker's Dictionary

  1. nude

    Said of machines delivered without an operating system (compare bare metal). “We ordered 50 systems, but they all arrived nude, so we had to spend an extra weekend with the installation disks.” This usage is a recent innovation reflecting the fact that most IBM-PC clones are now delivered with an operating system pre-installed at the factory. Other kinds of hardware are still normally delivered without OS, so this term is particular to PC support groups.
