OMNI Magazine is back! Sort of...


Recommended Posts

Some of you are probably too young to remember, but back in the late 70's early 80's there was an awesome science magazine called OMNI that really fueled the imaginations of many young (and not so young) readers with it's futuristic images, ideas, and presentation. Sadly, it died in the early 90's just as the internet began to take shape and thrive, but one man has bought all the assets and artwork from the Guccione estate and has revived it online in blog form:

Yeah! I had a subscription to OMNI as a kid, it ruled. Of course my mom threw them all away. Which kind of stinks seeing as how this blog is selling original copies for 60$ plus. They had a weird publication schedule as I remember, you never knew when you were going to get one. Which might have contributed to their demise.

      This release of mostly analog techno jammers is pay what you want and what I get from this album I will be sending to the Ecotarium, a local science museum here in Worcester MA USA, which is closed now, and scuffling in these Covid19 times.

      For me, this makes sense. With all the shittiness in the world, this may seem like an odd choice. I'll just say this place means a lot to me and I don't want to see it diminished by the most recent urgent shittiness. I grew up going to this museum with my family and friends. I had birthday parties there. I got my first real job there in high school. Now, I bring my kids there. One of the recent arrivals, an orphaned puma, has the same name as my youngest daughter (not planned, just cosmic). I have family members that got married there.

      For you, they have a little train that you can ride that goes through a tunnel and everyone yells. They sell astronaut ice cream.

      Made with Roland TR-8S, Korg Minilogue, Arturia DrumBrute, Korg Volca Bass, Reason and Abelton.

      I love stuff like this, even more so when it's backed by some science...

      Here's a tip: if you have some mediocre tracks, release them on a super-limited, very expensive format. It'll appear to be better tracks, according to science :)
       

       
      There's actually evidence that information about price influences your appreciation of wine. no surprises here, I guess.
       
      What surprised me however, was the bluntness of the neural correlates. If a certain brain region is activated, you'll appreciate something more. And how can you control activating that region? Well, just saying something is expensive will help a great deal.
       
      And all those crappy franchise movies? You might like them better if they were more expensive to produce. 
       
      Good to know we're mostly suckers when it comes to taste.

      Hey all, I released this new record of mine on Saturday. It jumps genre a lot, sometimes focusing more on synths and sometimes not. 
      Let me know what you think :)
