    Peter Rehberg has passed away

    Terrible news, he leaves behind an incredible contribution to music. KTL played very loud for the rest of the morning.

    Why does the left hate crypto so much?

    The core of crypto-twitter historically is very white, US-based, Libertarian. With that comes some baggage. They were pro-Trump, they are pro-gun, they are misogenistic, there's a high incidence of people on the spectrum, incels. Who else would have been taking big risks buying alternative tech...

    Dubstep

    Guilty as charged. I hoard digital files of the once-rare vinyl releases I never owned, or even worse, sold off and regret. I take the time to add the artwork and everything so it shows up nicely in my media player. When I went for career advice at school they said I should be a librarian, and...

    SEMI HIP 40 YR OLD SELLS CD COLLECTION.

    There is a middle ground, which is just pumping FLAC files through your stereo instead. I once had thousands of CDs and records, but sold almost all of them after ripping the lot to hard drives. They were expensive to manufacture, so always costly to buy. Also, and I doubt this impacted on...

    SEMI HIP 40 YR OLD SELLS CD COLLECTION.

    I have a 40 year old friend who has never stopped, those tall thin racks of CDs on proud display in the open plan dining room. It's like the last decade of technological advances has passed him by, and why not... it becomes tiring to keep up. It's like a time capsule. I'd forgotten what it's...

    SEMI HIP 40 YR OLD SELLS CD COLLECTION.

    It's savage. Describes perfectly several people I know. The moment you see the thread title, you whisper 'Moon Safari'.

    Shoegaze

    The drummer Simon Scott remixed it as well, and I think it's even better than the Avalon Emerson version, or the original for that matter.

    Shoegaze

    Has the discussion already been had about just how good the comeback Slowdive album was? Because it was good, incredibly good... I can't think of another band making such a strong statement 20 years later.

    weirdes fanfictions on fanfiction.net

    I went to school with a lad who spent his evenings writing wrestling (WWF, WWE? whatever) fan fiction. No one else had the remotest interest in wrestling because we were a: 16 years old and b: country bumpkins living in the depths of Dorset. So he was pretty isolated in his passion. This was the...

    An Englishman's home is his castle

    https://www.ft.com/content/02b0a95f-e952-4acd-b01f-9e14660a9fe5 Spatial apartheid. I'd not heard this phrase before but it fits the UK very well. We've been doing it for decades, just refining into a fine art now.

    Where to now?

    My 70-something father, after a lifetime of voting Conserative, switched to the Green party in the 2019 election. An oddity in a sea of blue.
