i don't think there are genuinely obnoxious voices today.
or at least if they are there they don't hold the mic.

someone like trump isn't...
the oldest tale in the world.
such an easy trap to fall into - on both sides

usually i make a decision - is this person "x" a dog? if they are a dog i kick them - then they are happy. kick...
A twin thread to the feats of autism thread.
Have recently discovered this guy's channel on YouTube.
Absolutely LOVE his passion and dedication and totally unabashed geekery.
Here's two of my favourite videos - both HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Here where he repairs a Wii. MESMERISING.
it looks to me like a massive field - but that's probably just my perspective - no wider really than the New York Rave thread.
so we're talking the scene around:
ART/the black dog/B12/nuron/lukeSlater

is there anyone old enough to have experienced this as a child in the seventies?
i remember it making a massive impression on my impressionable mind.

very underrated artist
came up thanks to @Leo in the underrated lps thread
naturally i am interested in his connection to TM (from the back of from a flower to a garden)
but of all the sixties artists his reputation is most cruelly tarnished
i always remember joe boyd's embarassment that...
no twelve inches/singles - we're talking sustained high-levels of creative consistency
i know there's a thread here about all LPs being boring but lets sidestep that avant-lumpen dogma and channel our inner MOJO/UNCUT
for me - although it is not exactly a rare LP - the groundhogs "thank christ...
ok i combed through all the old technology threads and couldn't see anything on this (quite surprisingly)
doing the research on retreat i came across those (well-known) ideas about how the computer industry emerged from the lsd scene

seeing as how it occupies a considerable amount of my thought.
best to start what's wrong with it.

my theory is that around 1000 AD it...
There is an Autism thread (by Nomadologist) but I think this is different
There are few marvelous examples which I found here https://www.discogs.com/lists/Edge-Cases/23195
This one really is a majestic sight to behold...
while i've been indulging in discogs listmania i've put these together selections of some of my fave record sleeve auteurs

ok so here's a sister thread to the information society thread
i have one of this groups records (like information society who i also own a record by them)
gotta say i absolutely LOVE the spirit of these band photos
i think it reveals what being in a group - dance act - whatever is really...
going through my records as i catalogue them for discogs
(a process that has been a little like articulating all the thoughts i ever had)
the nineties electronica (that's all the electronic music that isn't explicitly dance music - not techno, house, jungle etc) section gave me particular food...
