Nightmares on wax: the environmental impact of the vinyl revival

Inside a US vinyl pressing plant – its owners have asked that I do not give its location – dozens of hydraulic machines run all day and night.

Decomposed

The hidden material histories of music. Music is seen as the most immaterial of the arts, and recorded music as a progress of dematerialization—an evolution from physical discs to invisible digits. In Decomposed, Kyle Devine offers another perspective.

According to my Last.fm scrobble history I really should buy these albums on CD:

Aesop Rock - Skelethon (Deluxe)
Booka Shade - The Sun The Neon Light
LCD Soundsystem - American Dream
Bonobo - Black Sands
Band Of Skulls - By Default

And many more.

Going to have to make an order at A&O Medien in Düsseldorf.

Love the Synth-wave music movement and their cool band / artist names; Enjoying listening to this music which I imagine would fit well in the Expanse and Blade Runner universes. Some examples include: Scandroid, Lazerpunk, Electric Dragon, S U R V I V E, Lazerhawk, Mega Drive, Power Glove, etc

West of Memphis: Voices For Justice

Liked this album for its great music and production.

The story behind the real-life horror story known as the West Memphis Three is a chilling reminder on how complex humans can be.

Werner Goeman

My mom's brother Werner only became 41. He died on December 26, 1995 after a short intense battle with lung cancer. He was a heavy smoker. I remember him mostly as a DJ and a computer wizard. I remember he had boxes full of diskettes filled with early PC games. I wonder now if he posted anything on a BBS at the time or had his own Gopher site or even an early HTML website. I wish he was alive now and could observe how the Internet grew to what it is today and how computing power encreased exponentially. I wish he could be here today so I could share with him what I do a for a living as a Web developer and to be able to share good music. In 1995 I was only 15 years old and was not into PC much yet. Cancer sucks.

Sébastien Tellier - L'amour et la violence (Official Video) - YouTube

Dis moi ce que tu penses
De ma vie, de mon adolescence.
Dis moi ce que tu penses, Moi j'aime aussi
L'amour et la violence.

Got this funny feeling realizing that even now that I am older, the music I loved as a teenager or in my early twenties still sounds the same more than twenty years later.
