this is what the future will sound like [May. 25th, 2009|04:22 pm]

I want to hear a band full of macho-sounding dudes playing radical feminist punk. I need something like this to exist.

Cloudy Day Mix [May. 19th, 2009|07:30 am]
Alexandre
When I was still in Indiana, I found a CD-R on the street labeled "Cloudy Day Mix". I just put it in my CD player, and it looks like it'll still work. I wonder what's on it. I'm sort of scared to find out.

Update: It's an eclectic mixture of '90s/'00s pop songs and R&B standards. It's cute, anyway.

New Hampshire [2] [May. 15th, 2009|03:29 pm]

Finally, it sounds like progress is being made! Our governor has admitted that the current system is inequal, and while requesting certain concessions for religious folk in an effort to please everyone, the bill is hardly compromised. After this, the revised bill has to be voted on again. This will probably at most take a couple more days, and then we'll be the sixth in the country!

My very wonderful home state is incredibly close to legalizing same-sex marriage. All we need is for our governor to NOT veto the bill, and then we're in the clear. This is all happening so fast, I love it.

Nadja, Codeine [Mar. 14th, 2009|07:49 pm]

Uh, whoa. Apparently Nadja is doing a cover of "Pea" by Codeine. I'm really excited about that. I can't even imagine how astounding it will sound as a drone piece. I just hope it's not disappointing. Looks like the album has a My Bloody Valentine cover on it, too, and anything with such an excessive amount of guitar will sound great in drone form. I wonder if the album is all covers.

Merzbow [Feb. 15th, 2009|05:29 pm]
Alexandre
Lots of Merzbow albums sound pretty similar, and I can't tell the difference between a lot of them, but I always like getting new ones and listening to them. They're all pretty much variations on a theme, but it's always cool to hear them. Admittedly, there are some that aren't as good, but for the most part, rating and ranking them seems sort of arbitrary. It's just a matter of either accepting what he does or not. The same holds true for a lot of noise artists, but few of them are nearly as consistent (or successful, obviously) as Merzbow. Everyone knows this already.

Soviet nerd stuff [Feb. 9th, 2009|01:57 pm]

Apparently there were attempts to introduce the Cyrillic alphabet into Estonian, but I can't find any information about this. I was under the impression that all Soviet languages were required to be written in Cyrillic, but maybe they made an exception, because it never got done. I'm not sure whether Estonian was actively suppressed, but I don't get that impression. I know that there weren't really even efforts to develop Cyrillic writing systems for languages like Finnish and Karelian because Stalin hated them too much.
