  1. Is that a dig or a compliment? Maybe both, Pat is definitely generous with both. And it was the same employer, Steve McManus was even the editor of Crisis.
  2. Is there any decent summary of the Trevorrow script around that isn't a 4 hour youtube video?
  3. And for good measure, here’s a pic of the main chunk of the collection (there’s another 8 box shelf in the sitting room). About 20% of these belong to the missus and I haven’t a clue how she has them organised. We’ve also put up another 4 box kallax shelf on the right now, got some of the floor cleared. I need to sell a lot of what’s on the floor but I’ve been very lazy about it.
  4. As for discogs, I have way, way too many worthless records to bother putting them all on, but I’ve been doing a bit here and there in the last while for some of the stuff I have that’s worth a bit, stuff I look up and stuff I buy on there:
  5. Gonna cross post here: I’ve managed to organise my records without really thinking about it too much. Mostly by genre, although a good chunk of the weirder stuff (krautrock, synth stuff, Indian classical, African stuff, weird rock, spiritual jazz and fusion) all gets intentionally mixed up and rotated. For the proper mixing records it’s all just straight genre, with sort of hot spots in those sections where the really good stuff lives, and that’s rotated a good bit as well. Genres that go together are close as well so the dubstep is next to the garage, which is near the uk funky and post dubstep stuff, then the jungle is next to the DnB and the breakbeat hardcore is right in the middle of all of it. Seperate sections for 10” presses of jungle/dnb and dubstep/post dubstep. There’s a footwork section but I play all that with Serato now, it’s 99% digital only as a genre. Other sections then just live on their own like techno, reggae, jazz, hip hop and indie and electronica records from the 90s. I know vaguely where any record I might be looking for should be located. The good things about organising fairly loosely and rotating bits is it’s fairly quick and easy to put records back, and you keep finding things you’ve forgotten about. The thought of having to find the exact place for every record I have to put back terrifies me, so they’re never going into alphabetical or release order or anything like that.

  8. I find this guy absolutely fascinating. I bought the album when it came out as I have way more Indian Classical records than classic house and techno records. It's really good and really conforms to its title, they are (to my amateur ears) properly explored ragas, just using an 808 and a 303 instead of tabla and sitar. Not a fourtet or aphex expert, but from what i've heard, they would not be able to play like Charanjit did. He was tracked down by a journalist and the interview was very revealing. The journo was obviously a huge classic house and techno head. Singh really just came across as a jobbing session musician who got some new gear in the 80s, banged out an album to no great success and moved on. He had no real clue what anyone else did with them. When the journo played some chicago acid, he basically did a partridge shrug: The context he was making them in was all about exploring the Raga, basically playing with the melody using years of learning and experience. Whereas all the old house tracks were about simple repetition, unusual sounds and timbres but not necessarily any complex use of melody. So he didn't get much out of them. It was all just a giant cosmic coincidence. Really cool thing though. https://www.theguardian.com/music/2011/may/10/charanjit-singh-acid-house-ten-ragas
  9. They’re both definitely worth watching. There’s some decent episode guides out there. They’re most definitely kids cartoons so can lay on a bit of cringe sometimes but there’s some great moments and stories. Fairly heavy on the lore as well.
  10. Very true about Superman, there's plenty of mileage there. And while Snyder really stank the place out, he did understand the concept of Superman in as far as his real weakness is the people he is close to, and his love of humanity in general. That's why Batman's secret "weapon" against the resurrected Supes in Justice League was Lois Lane.
  11. They are pretty hard to manage, your best bet was what you did in creating a new post
