  1. Prior to MP3s, I remember mailing someone an Aphex Twin RDJ album promo mask for a dubbed tape collection of the universal indicator series. Looking back, that person got the better end of the deal.

    Now Reading

    After finishing Lou Reed’s biography (which was very good), I feel like this might be both a 180 and a proper follow-up. So far, so good! One main reason I’m choosing this is because a friend suggested that I read this and loaned it to me 7 or 8 years ago and I never got around to reading it. It’s kinda out of one thirds guilt, one thirds obligation and one thirds curiosity that I’m finally reading it now.
  3. I just typed up an absurdly long response on my mobile that got lost because my thumb accidentally nudged the right side of the screen and your user page showed up. When I tried going back by swiping the left side of the screen and nothing happened, I hit the back button on my browser and it all was gone. When typing longer posts, I’ve gotten in the habit of selecting all and copying from time to time but when I tried it this time (prior to losing my post), nothing was actually selected and I had no option to copy. I’m actually really angry right now. My stupid iOS browser still won’t let me select all and copy so I won’t try to retype everything. My basic point was that it’s not just about Trump. It’s the RNC, Fox News and every elected republican representative in lock-step, backed by voters who are being manipulated by tentpole issues like abortion, immigration, and the 2nd amendment. The whole thing is a part of a strategy to undermine successful government and skirt laws/regulations that get in the way of corporate profiteering. It’s a tough nut to crack.
  4. Someone’s ears were ringing because of this thread... https://www.stereogum.com/2065897/beck-says-hes-not-a-scientologist/news/
  5. The LA show has some absurd ticketing options... https://www.etix.com/ticket/p/7647214/squarepusher-los-angeles-1720?language=en&country=US&searchType=venue& I feel like they have his fan base pegged completely wrong.
  6. Hey. Look. If you want to talk about lettuce, you can start a thread about lettuce. This is a thread about lasagna.
  7. Not to mention that the closest Trader Joes to me hasn't had them in stock for the better part of this year. I'm wondering what is going on with that? Is there some big shortage or something? Edit After a little research, I've found these two articles that paint a bleak picture for pine nuts... https://www.nytimes.com/2015/10/19/opinion/making-pesto-hold-the-pine-nuts.html https://www.foodandwine.com/news/american-pine-nut-production-slowing
  8. My wife’s family has been on the veggie lasagna tip for a while. Instead of meat, the filling is usually grated carrots, spinach and black olives. The rest is basically the same. Honestly, though at first I wasn’t crazy about it, I love it now and don’t look back. I’d love to try a vegan/gluten-free lasagna, if someone out there has a good recipe.
  9. The lineup for the XMAS party is equally impressive... Fuckin Remarc AND Tech itch
  10. Blue Calx Stone In Focus You Can’t Hide Your Love (Hidden Love remix) Alberto Balsam and muthafuckin KLOPJOB!!!!
  11. Yeah. I figured so much. I guess in the dark mode it’s just a bit more difficult to see the difference between the bold text and the non bold text.
  12. Sure thing! I’m using “after dark”. I’ve attached screenshots. It’s easier to see the 2 different shades of black (as well as intensity difference in white text for threads with new content) when brightness is up high, but I don’t like having my brightness up too high because it gives me a headache. It might just be me, but I feel like I would like a slightly more noticeable difference in the alternating background shades that separate the thread headings. Also, if possible, it would be great if there was a slightly more pronounced visual difference between threads that have new content since last viewed and those that haven’t been updated. Maybe slightly bolder/thinner text? Thanks for caring ❤️
  13. To be fair, when that album came out, it was a bit of a game changer. I was in a hardcore/metal band at the time and just about every metalhead I knew was like “holy shit... stop the presses... this is one of the heaviest albums ever”. It’s too bad they quickly became a bit of a parody of themselves. They definitely had a moment with that record tho.
  14. I just discovered dark mode and I’m all in! Only a couple things... please pardon me for looking a gift horse in the mouth... also pardon me for not having any idea if any of this is easy or difficult to fix... - when browsing a subforum, all of the threads seem to run together, visually. Is there any way to break them up with say a white or grey border in between each? Same goes for buttons like “submit reply”, “save”, “cancel” etc. - also, when browsing a subforum in dark mode, it’s visually more difficult to determine threads with new added content from ones you’ve seen that haven’t changed. Is that a hard thing to fix? - last thing... I’m not sure if I remember correctly how to change text size in a new post while using mobile (iPhone Safari) view. Is that only available on desktop or on the app??
  15. Oh boy! Check out Port Rhombus, Vic Acid and Venus 17 next.
  16. 2nd album with “hello” in the title. Just sayin.
  17. Just order some of this shit... they ship. https://www.tastesofchicago.com/category/Lou_Malnatis_Pizza It is a very popular Chicago deep dish place. A hometown fave. I can vouch.
  18. I’m mostly familiar with Sicilian slices in NYC. “The Sicilian: This classic New York slice began in Palermo, Italy as sfincione: a focaccia loaded with herbs, cheese and other toppings. Typically, it’s topped off with sauce, though some NYC spots swap the cheese and sauce layers.” https://nypost.com/2019/04/16/the-best-new-pizza-slices-in-nyc-are-square/amp/
  19. I guess that's the same thing I might be referring to as "Chicago thin crust"? I never really heard the term "tavern style", growing up. There's a really great place in Milwaukee that does thin crust called Balistreri's. We sometimes make the trip to go there. Their za is similar (thought not quite as good) to the kind I grew up on but it has even thinner crust... making it exceptionally thin crust. It's quite good, indeed. If you're ever in Milwaukee, check that stuff out. My sources tell me the restaurant is historically connected to the midwestern mob that is mentioned in Scorcese's film Casino. Tonight we ordered from our regular spot in LA (nowhere near as good as Chicago pizza). Our regular order is usually all mushrooms w/ half black olives and half jalapeños. My wife usually eats the half with the olives and I usually get the half with jalapeños.
