Fuck... I got it quite a bit cheaper than usual, but way more than it costs now. I waited for fucking AGES too. Wish they would have announced it. Assholes.

Oh, well. Not like I bought a Cave Arcade Kit a day before the home port was announced.

I'm generally not a fan of mailing lists, but there have been several times where being on Ghostly's has clued me in to something that would totally fly under my radar. Bleep's as well.
You also distaste me with passion!

Real life has been kicking me in the cock lately, so even music has taken a hit. Hopefully I'll snap out of it soon. Here are a few recent grabs:

Black Marble: Bigger Than Life Very good
A Winged Victory for the Sullen: The Undivided Five They're touring soon. Need to grab tickets. I find Atomos far more dramatic, but nonetheless, this is fantastic.
Susumu Yokota: Cloud Hidden This is a weird one. Admittedly, had he not succumbed to illness, this wouldn't have been released and probably shouldn't have. It's been patched together from a DAT with previous material. However, as we will most likely never, ever hear anything from this genius again, I'm glad we got it. If you're unfamiliar, you should check out his discography. A true talent... one of the few that has spanned from Ambient to Techno to House, and it's all amazing.

So, I've been on a tangent musically for a while. I have a nice list of synthwave mixes on Youtube. It's hard to call them "mixes" as they aren't mixed... just standard playlists. But, they're easy to listen to while getting some work done. There's a few that aren't playlists, but actual albums. Lovers Part II EP by Time Cop 1983 I am digging. You can go down a veritable rabbit hole in this genre. Some suck, but some hit the nail on the head.
