you know how a coupla years back, just as the Outage Machine was really starting to hum, there was this orthogonal push to stop tweeting about your lunch, because nobody cares about your sandwich? that was the thing I loved best about Twitter: people sharing their most mundane, their most regular experiences. It's like a warm blanket, mercifully free of judgement and outrage. I'm no Buddhist, but I really dig the concept of the sacredness of the every day.
I had grilled cheese with bacon, btw.
Here's a new #introduction for new visitors... Show more
Hello! I do Ops at Amazon, but don't hold it against me. I'm married to the best person I know and have 4yr old twin boys I'm teaching to be empathetic, careful and considered members of society and also D&D.
I dig music. I drink coffee. I play games. I have a greyhound, Rufus; he's a lovable idiot. I have a golden apple tattoo and a fishbones tattoo and one made of unicode characters and so far I've resisted getting more. So far.
it took two days but i finally know what day it is in the campaign.
i told this to @aktei, who asked me if i knee what today's date is in the real world, which frankly was pretty rude.
I like Telegram because Björk treats remixes as first-class citizens, and features mixes that are thoughtful, interesting counterpoints to the Post versions. So many remix albums are a hot mess of au courant garbage assembled by labels cashing in, but Telegram introduced me to several artists with fascinating takes. Isobel (Deodato Mix) still crushes me.
And the remixes of this record! good lord.
One of the things I find interesting about _Debut_, Björk's 1993 post-Sugarcubes solo record, is that it's as much defined by her choice of collaborators as any of her later records -- her talent for finding precisely the right contributors to reinforce her ideas was evident even then.
Nellee Hooper is all over this record, so much so it sits comfortably next to the best acid jazz, trip-hop and pounding dancefloor electronica of 90s Europe, while remaining unmistakenly Björk's statement.
It's Björk Tuesday! in anticipation of the new record, I'm working my way through her solo catalog.
The quietus really knocked it out of the park on this Björk retrospective. http://thequietus.com/articles/23621-bjork-best-albums
muted. muted. you're all muted.
well that's my weekend sorted.
my day is better than your day because I'm dressed as a goomba stack. (another @aktei original)
if your day is grey and rainy, try setting off a supernova.
I'm not anticapitalist, but I do try to limit my consumption of frivolous, random crap. So when Anti- announces they're gonna reissue all their Tom Waits records on vinyl, which I already have lossless digital waveforms thereof, I am totally, completely unaffected.
