The new Humble Bundle just came out.  This time it's music, cool.

When I saw one of the artists was Hitoshi Sakimoto, I got excited thinking HB included a Bitcoin-related artist in their bundle.  Turns out he is a long-established video game composer.

He has a prolific resume, including Final Fantasy Tactics, FFXII, Ogre Battle, Valkyria Chronicles, a Bomberman game, Tekken Advance...

This is a bit of a stretch, but I wonder if "Satoshi Nakamoto" (who many believe is using a fake name) is derived from this composer's name.  Perhaps Satoshi is a fan of Japanese retro-ish video games?


Regardless, check out humble bundle: great organization that sells great digital products for whatever price you want to pay.

Probably it's an anagram of "anatomist's hooka".
