ADULT : WHY BOTHER? (2007 Thrill Jockey)
To sum if up: Adult is combining poetry with industrial, techno, electro, chaos and a couple melodic pieces for good measure plus an ambient track. The album is versatile. Adult is a female vocal group, she likes to be poetically militant & extremist, definitely disturbed....... I'm confused.....it is good like that =] She doesn't read to you but takes miss kitten style vocals [talking and yelling] and kicks them up a notch. That said she can sing when she wants and those experiences are moments of clarity. Track speed is a kind blend of electro, techno, and even up to gabber techno beats which stand hard behind this artist. I enjoy Adult, but if crunchy industrial-esk dance if not for you then I have warned you.

The Second Wave [ 80's new wave punk pop compilation ]
I'll get the bad out before the good. It's a Starbucks exclusive release on "Starbucks Entertainment". Thus you have to suck it up and enter a starbucks, just order a blackeye and watch the barrista [fancy word for starbucks coffee maker] twitch at a classic that isn't on the mocha/frapi/late/venti BS menu ; (large drip with 2 shots espresso) this should fuel you up for the ensuing neck jerking, pumping leg tapping and memory forced flashback headfuck ahead of your daily auditory crisis!
There the bad is out of the way, and that said it is an incredible minority to the upside serotonin swing forced on anyone around 25 years and older. Not an album for the young or radio hits only 80's music child.
80's new wave punk pop to sum it up easily. Here is an assortment, well thought out, shaken not stirred, of artists that will ring a bell. But unlike other compilations, this one doesn't trigger the thought of every trendy 80's nightclub. I would call the majority of these tracks B-sides from reputable and known artists. But butter battered lightly are the ever essential hits: Roxy Music: more than this, Tears For Fears: everybody wants to rule the world, Ramones: I want to be sedated, Joy Division: love will tear us apart, etc. Contradicting this are the other known artists' unknown tracks. Great education on artists such as: XTC, Jesus and mary chain, the smiths, the cure, echo & the bunnyman [no, not the donnie darko hit "killing moon"], the specials, tom tom club, etc.
Final thought: 8/10. Must have for any child of this era, mass exploited, yet predominately forgotten. come again =]

Label: Citycentreoffices [germany]
0ne of my favorite idm/glitch artists has brought a new entree to the dinning table for my thanksgiving, who doesn't love to eat flowers?
Lilies embodies the calmness that one may infer from the imagery of its title as well as the cover art.
Arovane has the rare power of taking the crisp crunch of this expansive genre and keeping it smooth and flowing as warm ketchup.
As always, melodic with the clicks and blips yet unique enough that I left it on album repeat for an afternoon.
Lilies is guaranteed not to get your heart racing, but rather to sooth the toes. Feel free to tap along to it.
Solid through and through like a tootsie-roll, there are no disappointing moments or tracks found within this botanical masterpiece.
If you have a yearn for an ambient, not beat-less, but rather good background auditory massage, this may be the golden ticket.
[Tracklist: Ten Hours,Windy Wish Trees,Passage to Nagoya,Cry Osaka Cry,Pink Lilies,Lilies,Tokyo ghost stories,Instant gods out of the box,Goodbye forever]

I awoke again just now.
took some pills.
looks like the sun is up.
figured that no one would ever believe me.
better start writing it down.
I hate mornings with out frank.
I wake alot.
It is best to knoe the details of when i started the sleep.
when I don't have that information I worry.
Right now I have that. and I can type without looking.
mostly, at least for now, i guess, you knoe?
typing is one of the things that i admire most.
I have been hacking allong pointing and pecking for years.
I love the sound and efficiency of someone typing at 140bpm or how ever it is gauged.
so far i can go about 4 words with out messing up on one.
This is the most boring thing on earth. aside from the typing practice which is fun.
i wwant to 'get' this website. or any of the social ones, as boomerangFuckStick as it is that this is a 'social'
time to go pack up the reminenets of my room into little plastic crates and place in the happy public storage that they reside in.
LiveJournal wont spelll chceck in my laptop and I h8 it.!!
so maybe i am out of touch but i am still on the oldschool way of friendster and everyone has migrated to myspace or tribe or whatever else....this is too complicated for an old guy like me people. slow down i can't keep track of you all =p

Minor social/historical note: Most people don't get custom-tailored suits, but in the tailoring business the question is "Do you dress right or left?"--meaning which side of the inseam does your scrotum hang. It's usually left, the side of the lower hanging one. And yes, the really upscale trousers are tailored to allow more room on that side. There's a great piece of Lyndon Johnson tape, when he is caught talking on the phone to his tailor, asking for "more room on the left side where my nuts hang."

today i found myself at the refridgerator. there was both beer and orange juice. as I was having a desire for both, i thought "why not" and poured a glass of half Modelo Especial and half orange juice. I just wanted to go on record saying that this was a bad idea.

"To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which canceled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy was impossible and that the Party was the guardian of democracy, to forget, whatever it was necessary to forget, then to draw it back into memory again at the moment when it was needed, and then promptly to forget it again, and above all, to apply the same process to the process itself -- that was the ultimate subtlety; consciously to induce unconsciousness, and then, once again, to become unconscious of the act of hypnosis you had just performed. Even to understand the word 'doublethink' involved the use of doublethink."
From 1984, by George Orwell.
