Here’s why we all live in endless, soulless, corporate musical hell:
“A relatively small number of producers and top-liners create a disproportionately large share of contemporary hits, which may explain why so many of them sound similar. The producers are almost always male: Max Martin, Dr. Luke, David Guetta, Tricky Stewart, the Matrix, Timbaland, the Neptunes, Stargate. The top-liners are often, although not always, women: Makeba Riddick, Bonnie McKee, and Skylar Grey are among Dean’s peers. The producer runs the session and serves as creative director of the song, but the top-liner supplies the crucial spark that will determine whether the song is a smash.”
In advance of Dean’s arrival at Roc the Mic, Stargate had prepared several dozen tracks. They created most of them by jamming together on keyboards until they came up with an “idea”—generally, a central chord progression or a riff—around which they quickly built up a track, using the vast array of preprogrammed sounds and beats at their disposal. Hermansen likens their tracks to new flavors awaiting the right soft-drink or potato-chip maker to come along and incorporate them into a product.
RIP: Ravi Shankar
Famed sitarist Ravi Shankar dies at 92 – latimes.com: “Ravi Shankar, the revered master of the sitar who introduced Indian music to much of the Western world, died Tuesday in San Diego County. He was 92.
Shankar was a hippie musical icon of the 1960s, playing at Woodstock and hobnobbing with The Beatles.
In 1966 the Indian musician met Beatle George Harrison, who became his most famous disciple and gave the musician-composer unexpected pop-culture cachet. Harrison labeled Shankar ‘the godfather of world music.’”

Walking in a fecal wonderland – Salon.com: “Winter brings wonderland dreams of pristine, snow-covered landscapes. At the Arizona Snowbowl resort, you can ski on it. You can sip hot chocolate gazing upon it. You can even get married on it.
But you might not want to make snow cones out of it. Because this year at Snowbowl, that twinkling white powder will be made from human sewage.”
Facts on Honey and Cinnamon: It is found that a mixture of honey and Cinnamon cures most diseases. – Facts – Fatal Facts: “Honey is the only food on the planet that will not spoil or rot. What it will do is what some call ‘turning to sugar’. In reality, honey is always honey. However, when left in a cool dark place for a long time it will ‘crystallize’. When this happens loosen the lid, boil some water and sit the honey container in the hot water, but turn off the heat and let it liquefy naturally. It is then as good as it ever was. Never boil honey or put it in a microwave. This will kill the enzymes in the honey.”
MSNBC Tops Fox News In The Demo Two Nights In A Row: “Is a shift happening in the normally frozen-in-place world of cable news ratings?

tonymacx86 – Free Photoshop alternative GIMP gets a huge OS X update: “GIMP (Gnu Image Manipulation Program), the long-standing open-source alternative to Adobe’s Photoshop, has now become a full fledged native OS X application. In the past the application had relied upon the windowing system X11, which in turn greatly affected performance and overall usage.
For people familiar with GIMP the transition will be easy as it retains much of the feel and setup of the pre-native version. New users should find it fairly easy to pick up for most basic image editing needs. And of course the best part for all users: it’s totally free! Head on over to the GIMP downloads page to try it out. Let us know in the comments what you think!”

The Sun Ship Sessions 1965 [no label, 1CD]
Sessions at RCA-Victor Studios, New York City, August 26, 1965. Broadcast on WKCR, Sept 23, 2001. Ex FM stereo.
‘In 2001, WKCR made a broadcast containing the unreleased takes of the Sunship Album. These takes have never been released officially.’ – Maurizio.
Sun Ship was an album that followed in the same vein as the late 1964 album, A Love Supreme. That was Coltrane’s famous album dedicated to the Supreme Being, God. After A Love Supreme, Coltrane continued with his spiritual journey which gave power to his music. The albums that followed, Ascension, Meditations, Kulu Se Mama and the post-humously released Om and Infinity, all recorded in 1965, displayed a man describing his faith and beliefs through music and chants. Sun Ship was recorded in August of that year.
Coltrane chose free jazz as the vehicle for his searching. Although neither Albert Ayler nor Archie Shepp or Pharoah Sanders, the free jazz advocates, sit in on these sessions, Tyner, Garrison and Jones felt the music just as deeply.
Sun Ship is an underrated album in the Coltrane canon but as the reviewers at the Penguin Guide To Jazz suggest, ‘it’s high time this fine record was better known’.
Thanks to Maurizio and u014945 who uploaded the show on Dime, April, 2012.”
Remote-control tech turns cockroaches into beasts of burden – Future of Tech on NBCNews.com: “Cockroaches use their antennae to feel their way around the environment. ‘What we do is we insert tiny electrodes to the antennae and we send low-power pulses [to them],’ Bozkurt said.
The pulse simulates the antenna feeling an obstacle, such as a wall, causing the cockroach to turn the other direction. Buzz the left antenna, the cockroach turns right; buzz the right one, the bug turns left.”
