I'm doing a little music shopping today. Picked up Adam Jay's "Inoperable Data" and Galcid's "Ambient Works" both on Detroit Underground.
The Adam Jay album is terrific new (nu-nu-nu-)electro, very bright sounding, futuristic stuff. Reminds me a bit of The Advent's electro output.
Galcid's Ambient Works is also good, three chill beatless pieces and one with fast clattering synth percussion. Has some nice sharp-edged sounds.
Tomorrow’s date will be written as an eight-digit palindrome around the world, the first time this has happened in 900 years.
The coincidence is rare because countries use differing conventions. February 2, 2020, is a palindrome whether expressed as day/month/year (02/02/2020), month/day/year (02/02/2020), or year/month/day (2020/02/02).
This happened last on November 11, 1111, and it won’t happen again until March 3, 3030.
I just finished reading the 2015 short story collection "Cyberpunk: Malaysia". 14 near-future scifi stories by Malaysian authors.
I really enjoyed it! I appreciated the variety of stories in the book. It could've been 14 derivative angry-man-in-rainy-neon-city stories, but wasn't.
Zen Cho, the editor, has a webpage for the book: https://zencho.org/cyberpunk-malaysia/

I'm headed to the arcade tonight to DJ with my friend Megaphysics. CEV & Megaphysics @ Ground Kontrol Arcade #pdx 9:00 PM until close, $7 cover, games are set to free play, 21 & over.
I'll be playing the usual selection of electro, techno, and downtempo from 11:30 PM on.
I abstained from drinking alcohol for a year back in 2016, and am doing the same this year.
Both four years ago and now, after about two weeks I started craving sugar. From what I read online that's common. It's some kind of physical or psychological replacement effect. It's a weird feeling.
Feels like time for a late-night PB & J.
We are live on anonradio.net! Kickin' it off with a Double of KMFDM. Happy Sunday!
Tracklist for this week's Movement Through Thought:
Drum & Bass. dBridge, Sully, a little '90s, a few tracks from the third Subtle Audio comp, and a whole lot of Cosmic Bridge. Was a good set.
I absolutely adore this custom Bōsōzoku-style bike job.
Movement Through Thought on #aNONradio starts in 30 minutes. The show is live every Friday at 06:00 UTC (that's 10 PM Thursday west coast USA time).

T.Power / Bionic Chronic
From his 1996 album "Waveform".
I was mixing some drum & bass tonight, playing around, and came up against the weird time signature in this track. I count the first phrase as 6 and the second as 7; I guess that makes it 13 over 4? Something like that.
DJ. "Movement Through Thought" on http://aNONradio.net . "Logical Aggression" every last Wednesday at Ground Kontrol in PDX. He/Him.
