Doomsday Curve Song

February 10, 2009

We recently came across the Lifeboat Foundation, a think tank studying how humanity can safeguard against war, attacks from aliens, artificial intelligence, and so on. Their Doomsday Curve musical video is magnificent.


Jajouka!

This was a total revelation to me.  I hadn’t really known what kind of music was used in DJ/Rupture’s “No Income Tomorrowland,” and then driving home my friends Brent and Mariko from the airport last night KPFA (same excellent station which hosts Negativland’s “Over the Edge” weekly live broadcast) rocked me.

Anyway, here it is. The first track is kind of not as rocking as I would want you to have as your first track, but tracks two and track are awesome.  Then it sort of slides in and out of awesomeness and newageness.

Any SFers want to go when they play at Yoshi’s?

The “This American Life” podcast this week was a rerun of “Numbers”. I had missed the broadcast in 1998, and my entire decade has been the poorer for it.
I suggest you go straight to the link below and enjoy the gem they turned me on to :
