Designed by Khoi Vinh of Subtraction fame (the blatant inspiration for the look of this blog) we can now state our typographical preferences with pride.
So. Here is (yet another) page that probably should never have made it into public. 1500 (yes 1500) album covers featuring nudity. And I quote:
Very obviously not safe for work. Unless you work in a record shop, where one assumes this would be acceptable. If a bit much.
It’s been a while, but I’ve finally got round to buying some new music over the last few weeks. A bit hit and miss, but some of them are definitely worth checking out:
My LCD Soundsystem fanboy status grows and grows. The first album is fantastic. The second album is fantastic. It’s no great surprise to find that I think 45:33 is fantastic too. Roughly equivalent to the second disk of the first album this is a harder and edgier version of Sound of Silver. Really very good indeed.
Oh look. It’s another LCD Soundsystem related item. FabricLive36: James Murphy and Pat Mahoney. Twisted disco at it’s finest. Right up my street. And back down the other side. On a BMX. On the pavement. Doing endos. You get the picture.
Utterly different, this one, but equally awesome. People Pitch by Panda Bear. I love Feels by Animal Collective. This is the album most like it that I’ve heard from the Animal Collective stable. The latest (Strawberry Jam) is a bit too much for me, but People Pitch is fantastic – haunting, layered, driving, weird; impossible to define but, just, well, really, really, um, good.
Although, finding out that Stephen Fry shares my fears about Storm in particular and botnets in general was a little surprising.
Antonia – there’s competition in town:
An old friend, Natasha, has gone into business. Apple Tree Clothing is organic environmentally friendly clothes for kids. She’s only been going a few weeks and it seems like it’s going really well.
My interest (other than the lovely clothes, obviously)? I’ve just helped Richard redo the website. Go there, buy things (and be impressed by the HTML, of course. I’ve not even managed that level of perfection on my own site!).
