  3. Ooooh, didn't see that coming. https://bleep.com/release/214727-stereolab-electrically-possessed-switched-on-volume-4 Sounding as good as ever on the sample track.
  4. Begone with your foul zoomer language! Edit: But yeah, I don't use my phone for music listening purposes.
  5. Edit: It's hyperbole, of course, but come on: storage space is cheap af these days. I have like 20 TB or something; how much music do you need? I was just wondering if there are other reasons beside that for someone to be "absolutely shocked", cause that one isn't really valid for me personally. But yeah, I guess everyone has to decide for themselves how highly they value quality vs. space.
  6. mashed poop3 It's probably a bad idea to open that can of worms, but here I go: I never use mp3, why should I? Or why should they? (I'm not a zoomer, not sure if that makes a difference.) Just because of storage space? Sounds like a deal with the devil to me. (For the record, I mostly don't use WAV either, FLAC is my sweet spot.)
  7. Sacrilege (not from you but the critics). The Hudsucker Proxy was one of my favorite films for years after it came out, even though I haven't seen it in quite a while. It's whimsical in the best sense of the word, and it looks gorgeous as well. Wonderful little flick IMHO.
  8. Maybe it's both 🤷‍♂️
  9. Yeah, me neither; I don't even like when people repost stuff from Twitter here, feels like cheating, lol. Also, cool pictures, remind me of Keith Haring. Stop talking our ears off, @Silent Member.
  10. I also spent NYE alone for the first time in years (the ladies being at my mother-in-law's), and I can honestly say it was the best in years. Took a bath, didn't shave, made myself some pizza, watched some docus in my leisure suit ... I don't even think I've had any alcohol. It was a revelatory experience, made me realize just how much I really hate that whole ordeal. I mean I kind of knew that before, but I think I accepted it as something you just have to do. Now it was like catching a glimpse of a beautiful world beyond where you just don't. Yeah, you guessed it, I'm really fun at parties. I hate having to sit around for hours with a room full of relative strangers waiting for the big thing to finally happen; it's always a drag. I hate fucking firecrackers; the restrictions were so unbelievably great that I really hope the Green party will find a way to somehow ban that shit for good. Millions of dogs and other animals are with me on this (not likely to happen though). I hate sparkling wine. I hate standing around on rooftops in the cold holding a humiliating plastic champagne flute with zero strawberries in it, waiting for other people to light their stupid firecrackers so they can throw them between my feet (ha ha!) or in the hood of my jacket (ain't that fun!) while being hugged by drunken strangers every five seconds and having to wish them a wonderful year back even though I don't give a fuck and they just put a burn hole in my best hooded The North FaceTM anorak. I hate the apocalyptic feeling on the day after when you're hungover and feel herpes creeping up on you and there are broken bottles and detonated post boxes all around and you just want to barf all over it like everyone else seems to already have done. I fucking love fondue. That is a little bit of a conundrum. Well, the important thing is I've decided I don't do NYE anymore, the way Mariah Carey doesn't do stairs. Can't wait to tell the missus. FWP: Now that I finally have a new laptop it feels like such a drag setting everything up that I kind of wish I hadn't.
  11. Maybe you can coin the term "to swerve someone". 😉
  12. You mean Covid or Boris Johnson? Yeah, that could be a bit confusing.
  13. Truesounds, fakenews. The more I see, the more I get the impression that there really is a connection between ganja and paranoia/conspiracy theories. Proceed with caution.
  14. People haven't always been sleeping the way we do today. In the Middle Ages, byphasical sleep was common; you'd go to bed at dusk, wake up in the middle of the night, muck about for a few hours, and then nod off again. I think the worst thing you can do is put yourself under stress because you feel like you're not sleeping like you're "supposed to". Then again, that's easier said than done when you got stuff to do and places to be in the morning. But if your personal situation allows for it, it should be fine to just let your body pick its own rhythm.
  15. Hide your face, free your dong! Mine advertises my personality better than the ol' mug anyway; maybe we should reconsider that whole idea of our faces being our calling cards.
  16. I got one of those too. The problem will subside when I tell her, "Go back to your room, mom", but only for short amounts of time. Let me know if you find a long-term solution.
  17. For every bite you take out of that, one Neapolitan dies.
  18. I don't think I've ever heard a Plastikman record that was boring or even meh, and since Richie Hawtin is the Bruce Wayne to Plastikman's Batman, the guy's a legend in my book. However I did kind of like bald, nerdy Windsor-to-Detroit LSD Richie with glasses better than asymmetrical hairstyle Berlin cokehead Richie with contacts. Or, as he would say, CONTACTS.
  19. I dare you to look at this charming, proud and yet modest young man for a second, then pause the video and tell that to his face. He has some really nice tunes under his belt ("Little Computer People" was ace), and it's not so much that he's plagiarizing Kraftwerk as that he just does a kind of Electro which is very true to form. Not all of it sounds like Kraftwerk, but most of it is firmly rooted within the boundaries of the genre, and I think that's just the way he wants it. I don't think it's uncreative but rather trying to be creative in a very defined setting. In that way, he's not that different from someone like, say, Ed DMX or Com Truise (or any old-school Electro act for that matter).
