A Thought

I normally don't veer towards political or social commentary here, but...

Isn't it time the concept of "performing" animals is laid to rest? Over time, I've really come to not like the idea of zoos or any animal-based attraction. Just let them live where they belong.

Pitchfork sheds light on the current indie-led mini revival of the lowly cassette.

Interesting: "Cassettes outsold vinyl and compact disc, respectively, from the early 80s until the early 90s. And yet despite their recent resurgence in certain indie circles, 2009 was the worst year for cassette sales since Nielsen SoundScan started keeping numbers, in 1991, according to the record-industry sales data provider. There were a staggering 8.6 million cassettes sold in 2004, and cassettes were still selling 1 million-plus copies as recently as 2006."

All three from "The Commercial DVD".

Fernando Forero

Just discovered Fernando Ferero, a Polish illustrator with a style I really, really like. Here's a collection of his work.

I'm particularly intrigued with his book, "Ultimos Ritos", which has a very strong Vaughan Oliver, old school 4AD vibe.

Photoshop at 20

On February 10th, 2010, Photoshop turns twenty. Here's an overview of the program's history.

My life's revolved around this software for the past 12 years. I used to go to bed and literally dream about merging layers. Thankfully, no more.
