How to decode the images on the Voyager Golden Record | Boingboing
"Welcome to the digital stone age". Recall that V'ger^WVoyager was launched in 1977, and employs technology available at the time. This clearly explains why the aliens are all avoiding us. They think we're all wearing bell bottoms and deely boppers, and encoding image data as analogue audio. Kinda haunting to listen to the raw recording.

The Kickstarter worked, so now these videos are available to the world. Even if you've not spent real money on every single Frisky & Mannish live performance available, like what I have, these hi-def recordings are now available for you to enjoy IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN HOME (although, for various reasons Festival-related and not, I still highly recommend getting drunk either first or during). F&M aren't doing any shows for the next while, so this is all you get. Enjoy.

Morgan Freeman Recites the Dictionary Definition of the Word 'Twerking' | Gawker
I've never liked Morgan Freeman. Every single one of his characters has come across as a patronizing prick to the extent that I can't believe that it stems solely from his characters, and also WHY DID THEY NOT MAKE HIM FACE OFF AGAINST ALAN RICKMAN IN ROBIN HOOD: PRINCE OF THIEVES? I can see the merit of his vocal style, but it doesn't impress me, largely because mine is better but also because of the patronizing prick thing as noted above. All that said, many of you may appreciate the video heretofore attached.

Referencing Ballet Mechanique and Musique Concrete, of which I've never really been a big fan, with one notable exception (Delia Derbyshire rocks your socks right off). Answer: probably. This investigation into the Dubsteps raises some damn good points, despite a slight overdependence on Skrillex as the ur-example. This I shall permit. They're Americans after all.
