Off Daze, by Portland’s Das Leune - Directed by Joe Aimonetti - filmed in Portland, OR.

"No I wrote it on a Mac. I’ve never used a PC in my life; I don’t like them."

Brian Eno to the BBC last year when asked if he created the Windows 95 startup sound on a PC.

A nice follow up to this and this.

"Maybe people used to think Power-Point and various other things were just tools, like a hammer. But no, every tool, including hammers, is about doing very specific things. With a hammer, it’s easier to hit a certain kind of nail than it is other kinds of thing. And so they lead you, subtly, to do certain kinds of things. At the end of the 1800s, Edison invented a recording system that didn’t use any electronics. There was no microphone: the sound was focused through a physical horn that made a little needle etch a wax cylinder. The technology could record certain things, such as a singer, but percussive things, such as a bass drum, those kind of big bass-sound impulses, made the needle jump in the recording and the playback, so a lot of the time they relegated the bass to the back of the [recording] venue, or sometimes took it out altogether in jazz recordings. Which meant that the jazz ensembles that were recorded were not the same instrumentation as you would hear live. And so what got disseminated, what people heard and recognised as jazz, early jazz, bore almost no resemblance to what was actually being played. The technology limited what could actually be distributed. That’s an early and blatant example, but it continues. It’s a little more subtle. There are other things now that shape the music in other, more subtle ways."

I don’t love Arizona Green Tea. I think it’s okay, but a little sweet. 
But
I love this.

My friend Joe Aimonetti directed this music video for Portland musicians Reva DeVito and Roane Namuh. I think he did a great job.

Everywhere I go, I keep hearing Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know.”

I like the song. It’s not bad. But it sounds A LOT like the theme song to a show about a certain band of castaways.

Today I learned Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” is just a sleepy tribute to Gilligan’s Island.

Mashups just ruined your childhood.

Soundtrack of My Life (A Slacktory Video)

Don’t pretend you don’t sing to yourself when you’re alone in your apartment. You’ve done this.

Oh and I DARE YOU to not think “It’s the Circle of Food” next time you’re on the crapper. That one’s laying eggs in your brain whether you like it or not. (The eggs will hatch the next time you poop.)

DAS IS GOOD
