On Future Performance - Opinionator Blog -
In fact, I think that it is precisely this kind of surprising freshness that technology can allow — through what can be precisely customized for each project and through the unexpected new discoveries that each project seems to require or reveal — that remains one of its continuing attractions for me.

But we can’t take such freshness for granted. Musical technology is so ever-present in our culture, and we are all so very aware of it, that techno-clichés and techno-banalities are never far away and have become ever more difficult to identify and root out. It is deceptively challenging these days to apply technology to music in ways that explode our imaginations, deepen our personal insights, shake us out of boring routine and accepted belief, and pull us ever closer to one another.

Karaoke industry may be facing the music -
For what was supposed to have been a flash in the pan, the karaoke phenomenon has had a long run. Musician Inoue Daisuke created the karaoke machine in 1971 using a car stereo, a coin box and an amplifier; the first karaoke "box" venue opened in 1984 in a converted freight car in a Japanese rice field.

The 1990s brought a surge in popularity for karaoke, which means "empty orchestra" in Japanese, not "tone-deaf" as urban legends have it.

"In the beginning, karaoke was kind of a gimmicky thing," said Peter Parker, publisher of Karaoke Scene Magazine. "But it's worked its way into all the cracks in the culture."

Sinatra Song Often Strikes Deadly Chord -
“ ‘I did it my way’ — it’s so arrogant,” Mr. Albarracin said. “The lyrics evoke feelings of pride and arrogance in the singer, as if you’re somebody when you’re really nobody. It covers up your failures. That’s why it leads to fights.”

36 Hours in Toronto -
Sidewalks are spotless, trolleys run like clockwork, and the locals are polite almost to a fault. That’s not to say that Torontonians are dull. Far from it. With a population that is now half foreign-born — fueled by growing numbers of East Indians, Chinese and Sri Lankans — the lakeside city offers a kaleidoscope of world cultures. Sing karaoke in a Vietnamese bar, sip espresso in Little Italy and catch a new Bollywood release, all in one night.
