For those of you gray enough to remember....

Hammer Time


Matthew Shipp, ivory hammerer and veteran of the '90s New York downtown scene, inflicts glorious keystroke violence here. (No doubt he's familiar with this lot.)

The tune is Cohesion and it's an orgy of percussive playing, sword fighting analog and digital sounds, hip hop influenced beats, caffeinated bass playing, and fat machine gun chording.

This is the rebirth of cool.

What Is Music?


As that answer becomes ever more illusive, here comes another boundary pusher.

Grooveshark, Dead in the Water


For the last few years this blog has been using Grooveshark and its player for sharing the music I write about. If you haven't heard, Grooveshark has suddenly ceased to exist. Not only have they ceased business operations but they've obliterated their players as well.

Therefore, all of the many songs I had posted from Grooveshark over the years on this blog have now simply disappeared.


You'll notice in many of the posts there are now large blank spaces where the missing players are. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Junk Food 1984


If you'd thought by 2015 1984 would be played out, you'd be wrong. This video is going viral as it's being hailed as what passes for genius in the world of mad men.

But that's not why I've posted it here. I've posted it because it is yet again another misuse of Blitzkrieg Bop, a song about Nazis executing Jews, as fodder for selling super high-fat, empty calorie-d, sodium bombs in the form of highly processed breakfast "food."



All of that aside, the graphics are dope as is their mix of Blitzkrieg Bop.
