RIP I didn't know the guy or his music, really, but having read a LOT about him today this seems particularly tragic. I also didn't realize LA was in the middle of another shooting epidemic. When is this going to end? smh

April 1, 2019 on Heading Toward #1 Debut, Billie Eilish Plays Ellen And Breaks Down “Bury A Friend” For NYT
I do agree the votes are not that serious, always felt that way. Also, I definitely have better things to worry about. But damn if this hasn't become a fascinating online social experiment. Obviously some people agree and disagree with you of their own volition, without having read the thread that follows the original post. But I'm also fairly certain that some people ARE voting based on possible SUD placement. At this point it wouldn't make best or worst of. And I feel fairly confident in saying it won't be the Editor's pick. Interested in seeing how this plays out.

April 1, 2019 on Carly Rae Jepsen Announces New Album Dedicated
See, it's not that I dislike Faith, or any other Cure album. It's that I like Disintegration more. Definitely not trying to convince you, they have enough material that many people having many different favorites makes sense. But consensus and history have come down on the side of Disintegration being some special, something extra. I can't say exactly why I love it so much because I'd been listening to the Cure for a few years before that (I don't go back to the beginning). There was just something about my 17 year old seeing the record cover for Disintegration (which is beautiful to my eyes), reading the liner notes before playing and seeing that it said to "play loud", playing it loud (LOUD!) and becoming completely immersed in those songs. And this is pre-hit singles and videos. That was a bonus. Also, I saw that tour, and hearing those keyboard parts blasted in your face at insane volumes changed the way I feel about them forever. I don't hear how they've aged, I just hear my experiences with them. When I hear those keyboard parts start live these days I get just as hyped as I did back then. Random addendum: saw Pink Floyd that year, also. Two huge music memories. I'll have to clear the melon and give Faith a new listen. I'm pretty sure I haven't listened to it front to back in more than ten years... shit, at least.

Yeah, nine A.M. is fucking earrrrrrly for Coachella. It's usually semi-slow and chill in in those pre-noon hours. Probably not going to be the case that day.

Yeaster. I will always remember I saw you say it first. Coachella pays well, particularly for the bigger names, but it's not nearly as much as you'd think in most cases. It's not money that would impress Kanye, I can assure you. But if you hit at Coachella, if you do something people are talking about, it's worth more than the money.

March 31, 2019 on Modest Mouse – “Poison The Well”
As much as I love the entirety of the Cure's catalog, I would be a lying liar face if I didn't admit that I love Disintegration more. Bloodflowers was dark, but not as dark as Disintegration, and not as good. I've been waiting for another dark, long song Cure album for 30 years. Much excite.

Personally, it bothers me that okurr is even associated with Cardi B. That shit ain't hers. And that has nothing to do with what is being discussed, it's been bugging me for a minute.

**cough** I bought this video on VHS. Imagine walking into Amoeba in Berkeley, heading over to the start of the electronic section (because Aphex Twin, A, the alphabet and all that) and there's Rich's smiling face staring at you from the top display shelf... only it's not reeeeally Rich, because large breasted woman in bikini. Still have 'Come To Viddy' on VHS, too. And The Prodigy's 'Electronic Punks'. Seriously doubt I'll ever watch them again. They're just nice reminders of a different time.

Still have those. One of the only things I ever bought at the Virgin Mega store in S.F. I worked a couple blocks away and I'd walk over at lunch to just look at things and stuff. For whatever reason, I have a clear memory of discovering and buying the Director's Label releases at that particular store. Great collections. I used to watch them regularly, but as lieutenant wine mentions, not as needed these days.

Great words for a well-deserved artist and album, but you could honestly do this for pretty much every release (or little groupings of them) he let lose upon the Earth from 1991 through 2005 (and that's a lot of releases - albums, EPs, singles). I've been listening to mostly electronic music since the early 90s and still listen to knew stuff across many genres and categorizations on a weekly basis. I hear Rich's influence everywhere - it's undeniable. For a few years after the Analord series there was a void, where it seemed like a lot of artists/producers weren't sure exactly where the more abstract, bedroom type sounds were going. Then, all of a sudden, it seemed like they collectively gave up and said, "fuck it, lets make stuff that sounds like what Rich did." There are entire swaths of electronic music now that sound so much like something Rich would do that people continue to argue over whether or not it's actually him. If all the music people think is Aphex Twin was actually Aphex Twin the guy would have to be super human, and possibly have cloned himself... more than once. So yes, Windowlicker was hugely influential and it's success somewhat mind-boggling. But is mentioned in the article, his other releases were just as influential (and definitely pushed electronic music forward in myriad ways).

In regards to that last sentence, I bet you didn't, because it's really just a genuinely pretty awful movie. Also, the book, for whatever reason, is generally considered a classic. It sold very well and was widely discussed, that's why it was made into a movie. That being the case, what was I expecting? Something a level of two up from this. Not sure why anyone thought Tremaine could direct real actors, to be honest.

Once again.... point missed. Violence is really not what gets people up in arms, it's nudity and sex. I wish more people cared about our obsession with violence.

William Wallace didn't really liberate Scotland, either. But I still fucking love Braveheart. You are obviously correct, but people should just assume that's the case with nearly any biopic, or even most factually based movies. That's why they say "based on" most of the time. Anyway, BR is certainly not "Total Bullshit", but Pitchfork gotta Pitchfork.
