Putumayo Kids Presents: One World, One Kid

A short album of songs for children, coming from several cultures around the world, and structured like a radio show, complete with voiceovers. Utterly charming.

The new Tool album. I don’t know if it’s just that I had unrealistic expectations after such a long hiatus, but it hasn’t grown on me yet.

Wayform: The MKBHD Podcast

Kind of testing whether I like podcasts. I'm fairly distractible by pretty much everything nowadays but I'd like to switch my background noise from music to podcasts as they seem better use of time than random music. There's at least a slim chance that I could actually learn something.

Nemesea, White Flag

Their sound has lightened under their new singer, but I still like them a lot.

Lacuna Coil, Black Anima

Not crazy about Andrea Ferro sharing vocals almost equally with Cristina Scabbia (I wouldn't mind if it was just Scabbia, with no male vocals at all), but still a solid work.

I just randomly came across two specimens of the genre known as “chiptrax”, which I should stress with not inconsiderable emphasis, is very much not the sort of thing I normally listen to (which would be confirmed by the fact that immediately prior to this I had savoured organ compositions by JS Bach, Dietrich Buxtehude and this French upstart chap named Boellman, and no, the latter was not the Suite Gothique, nothing as well known).  Nonetheless whereas the first of the two specimens was a mere curio, the second, entitled appropriately “Computer Adventure” by a chap known as “Drozerix”, not only provided what in literature of old was referred to as “transportation” but also evoked such a strong feeling of nostalgia for my early childhood that the words of Talleyrand immediately came to mind, “those who have not known the Ancien Regime do not know the sweetness of life.”

Simkins, naked links are not permitted; they need at least a brief description or title.  I'm giving you a 10% warning as a result.  If you'd like to appeal this decision, you may do so via PM.

You lived in France during the Bourbon kingdoms?

For me the ancien regime is that time in the 80s, 90s and Noughties, the era where mobile phones were not generally owned by children, the era of Blockbuster Video and Hollywood Video, the era when old fashioned Routemasters were a common sight on every street in London, and British food had a bad reputation, the era when Deutsche Bahn had just finished repainting its trains after the Fall of the Wall, and still had a BordRestaurant on every InterCity and ICE train, the era when PCs ran DOS, the era when Macs ran an operating system with cooperative multitasking and manual memory management, and looked ugly, until the return of Steve Jobs and the iMac; the era of big, heavy, beautiful CRT monitors which could change resolution and still retain fidelity, the era of CD-ROM games, the era of shareware sold on floppy disks, the era where servers were still dominated by elegant midrange computers running Sparc, Alpha, PA-Risc, Power and MIPS CPUs and proprietary UNIX or VMS, the era when Unisys mainframes were still a thing and IBM mainframes even more of a thing, and the era in which people did amazing stuff on 8 bit Commodores, before they went bankrupt.

But now I am venturing still further into the past, musically at least, by listening to the lesser known oegan fugues of Johann Sebastian Bach, starting with his fugue in D major.  Then I think I shall go back further yet and savour some Dietrich Buxtehude, the greatest Scanian composer.

Council of Nicea:
Εθη ἀρχαῖα κρατείτω. 
Mores antiqui obtineant.
The ancient ways shall prevail.

The sentiment of Nicea in Greek and Latin, translated into English.
