Julian's Hot Wheels Blog: 1967 Ford Mustang Coupe (2018 Walmart Exclusive 50th Anniversary Zamac Flames)
Zamacs, probably one of my most favorite kinds of Hot Wheels! So with that said, there's no way I'm not stoked about an entire set of Zamac muscle cars dedicated to the 50th anniversary of Hot Wheels!

Watch Guns N’ Roses Play “Shadow of Your Love” | Music News | Consequence of Sound
The recently unearthed lead single from the band's massive 30th anniversary reissue of Appetite For Destruction
Guns N’ Roses gifted their Danish fans yesterday with one of the rarest of sights: a live performance of “Shadow of Your Love”. Axl Rose and company unearthed the track for the first time in 31 years at their concert at the Dyrskuepladsen in Odenske.
“Shadow of Your Love” was co-written by Rose while still in the pre-GNR group Hollywood Rose. It then ended up being the first song GNR ever rehearsed together for Appetite For Destruction producer Mike Clink during studio sessions circa 1986. While it ultimately didn’t make the cut for that album, the song is finally being released as the lead single from the band’s massive 30th anniversary reissue of Appetite, which arrives June 29th.

Led Zeppelin Announce 50th Anniversary Book | Music News | Consequence of Sound
The 400-page book, which includes previously unpublished photos, arrives this October
Robert Plant recently told us that it would be a “disservice” to Led Zeppelin fans if the legendary rockers to ever reunite onstage again, but that hasn’t stopped them from teaming up for other pursuits. On the band’s official Twitter account yesterday, surviving members Plant, Jimmy Page, and John Paul Jones announced a new book they helped create in honor of Led Zeppelin’s 50th anniversary.
Called Led Zeppelin by Led Zeppelin, the 400-page illustrated tome details the band’s vast history in between photographs of the core members on and offstage, “in candid moments and in the recording studio.” Many of these photos are previously unpublished, and will adorn the pages alongside artwork from the Led Zeppelin archives.

Liz Phair’s ‘The Girly-Sound Tapes’ Sheds Light on a Songwriting Legend In-the-Making | Album Review — Albumism
Liz Phair
The Girl-Sound Tapes
Buy: Official Store | Amazon | iTunes | Listen Below
The Girly-Sound Tapes are three demo tapes recorded by Liz Phair in 1991, two years before the release of her hit 1993 debut album Exile in Guyville. Like a collection of post-collegiate diaries, they’re a manifesto of a woman coming into her own, with a lot to say. The Girly-Sound Tapes were a near-mythological artifact of the ‘90s, impossible to come by in the time before Spotify and iTunes, hyped to exhaustion by those with access.
Now, after decades of an underground-style circulation, Matador has released all three albums together, as a glimpse into where Phair got her start.
Girly-Sound, a moniker that Phair began recording under, winks at expectations. The ultra-feminine implications of “girly” clashes against her dry cynicism and candor, redefining the word. Her music in “feminist” simply in the way it exists, unapologetically made by a woman. The demos are gritty, but not amateurish, and it’s easy to see why they were a sensation.

Watch Alice in Chains Pay Tribute to Chris Cornell at Rock on the Range | Music News | Consequence of Sound
The heavy metal outfit covered Soundgarden's "Hunted Down" and "Boot Camp" in Columbus, Ohio over the weekend
Last week marked the one-year anniversary of Chris Cornell’s tragic passing. In remembrance, Alice in Chains used part of their Rock on the Range set over the weekend to deliver a grungey tribute to the late Soundgarden frontman.
Before a massive crowd in Columbus, Ohio, Jerry Cantrell and the rest of his heavy metal crew covered Soundgarden’s debut single and Badmotorfinger track “Hunted Down” as well as “Boot Camp”, off 1996’s Down on the Upside. As Louder also points out, Alice in Chains’ stage setup featured the initials “CC” and “SG” all lit up and flashing.

100-річчя підняття українських прапорів на Чорноморському флоті - YouTube
Ukrainian Institute of National Remembrance
Published on Apr 25, 2018
29 квітня 1918 року відбулася надзвичайно важлива історична подія в історії українського флоту. Спираючись на рішення делегатів корабельних команд і настрої українських моряків та офіцерів, весь Чорноморський флот був проголошений флотом УНР і видано наказ урочисто підняти українські прапори. Це рішення підтримала й виконала абсолютна більшість кораблів Чорноморського флоту. Ті ж команди, що перебували під впливом більшовиків, поспішно евакуювали свої кораблі із Севастополя до Новоросійська. День 29 квітня став справжнім тріумфом національної волі, на довгі роки ставши святом Українського Державного Флоту.
Для Українського інституту національної пам'яті ролик підготували Юрій Журавель та творча спільнота "Добродій".

The iMac’s lasting legacy | Macworld
The iMac's influence reaches far beyond the desktop, or even the PC.
Plenty has already been said about the 20th anniversary of the iMac, the computer that played an instrumental role in bringing Apple back from the brink. But the legacy of the Bondi Blue iMac is still with us in many ways today—not just in the computer that shares its name, but in an overriding philosophy that Apple continues to exemplify across its product line.
If you wanted an indication of how Apple would be doing business in 2018, you could do worse than cast back two decades and look at the decisions that it made when it produced that first iMac. (A machine that itself took a page directly out of Apple’s own playbook for the original Macintosh back in 1984.) The line is anything but subtle.

Just in Time | Asymco
The iMac launched May 6 1998, exactly 20 years ago. It is not the most significant computer to ever exist. It was a clear descendant of the original Mac which established the “all-in-one” desktop computer category. That category, to which it still belongs, is a modest segment. The last time Apple reported portable sales separately was in late 2012 when the desktops/servers and pro systems combined made up only 20% of all Mac sales by units. If iMac were 10% of Mac sales, it would represent about 2 million units in 2017.
Desktops evolved into laptops and personal computing evolved into pocket  computing. Becoming more personal means more intimacy and this is leading to wearable computing. There is more beyond that to be sure.
But the iMac is a historically significant machine. It allowed Apple to start on a new trajectory. It did this by first offering a financial lifeline. Sales of Macs, which were at the time the only source of revenues for Apple, increased from 2.7 million to 3.8 million a year. This at a time when Windows PCs were shipping about 100 million units. That was enough to ensure survival. Today Mac units are five times higher while Windows PCs are about 2.5 times higher. The following graph shows the impact of iMac on the Mac’s trajectory.

The iMac arrived 'Just in Time' - Six Colors
This is a simply amazing piece by Horace Deidu about the history of computing and the iMac’s place in it:
The iMac is a historically significant machine. It allowed Apple to start on a new trajectory…. iMac’s design screamed “consumer product” which went from signaling inferiority to superiority. It set a standard for novelty, creativity and dynamism in the category that was considered second-rate….
The question for today is what is the new iMac? What is the enabler for change? It’s not easy to spot. It is not the thing of the future but it points to the future.
Come for the insightful analysis, but be sure to linger over the mind-blowing charts.

iMac at 20: After the 1998 iMac announcement | Macworld
How the Mac clones helped make the iMac live, and why Mac users didn't all embrace Apple's newest creation
I was working at home when I got the message: The entire Macworld editorial staff needed to gather in a conference room in a couple of hours. Apple had announced something huge and we needed to react immediately.
Stop the presses!
It was May 1998 and I was working as a features editor at Macworld magazine—and in those days, magazines were superheroes and websites were their plucky sidekicks. Monthly magazines had a relatively leisurely schedule, but the day the iMac was announced, Macworld was in the midst of “close”—the one week where we finalized every single page in the magazine, back to front, and transmitted them to our printing press in the midwest.

Daring Fireball: 20th Anniversary of the Original iMac
Jason Snell...
Until the iMac was unveiled, the only thing Apple had really shipped in the post-NeXT-reunification era was the Think Different ad campaign. That was a great campaign, but still, mere words, not action. The iMac was the first real product, and it set the stage for everything that has come since. Snell truly captures the significance of the original iMac — the surprise, the controversy, the excitement. This was the moment when Apple truly was back.
A few stats. Max RAM on the original iMac was 128 MB; on today’s iMac Pro it’s 128 GB. Graphics megaflops performance: 60 vs. 11,000,000. It’s almost ridiculous what a difference 20 years makes, but the spirit remains the same.
