InfoWars and Goop are trying to sell you the same misinformed lifestyle.

An informative, passionate love letter to history's second most important drum machine. Although for me, 909 will always be #1.

This is delightful to watch, no matter who you are. Enjoy.

"This project examines English eel-rents from the 10th through the 17th centuries to help show both the extent and longevity of eel-rents as a part of the medieval English economy. Included are maps of eel-rents by century, estimates of the distances that rents travelled, and an educated guess about of the worth of eels in modern terms."

"Not only does [the way in which urban space is currently structured around the car] lead to congestion, it reduces quality of life with noise, pollution, and sprawl. To valorize Teslas is to simply want to continue the mistakes of the 20th century, keeping that basic organization of space the same while changing almost nothing. And as Singapore's Environment and Resources minister stated recently, it is systemic changes to things like public transportation that offer true change, not the "lifestyle" of a Tesla."

Nikol Štrobach explains how to duck or side-chain using envelopes, VCAs, and inverters.

A damning assessment of practices by MIT and the Media Lab which have ultimately been going on for 100 years.

Really great list.

I've seen two of them live, follow a handful on Twitter, and I'm particularly fond of Cameron Esposito due to her appearances on Comedy Bang Bang. I hope to catch a show the next time she's in town.

Fast software is the best software and almost none of today’s software software is fast.

Old school MTV news host and journalist Kurt Loder explains why George Clooney’s Confessions of a Dangerous Mind is “the greatest movie ever made.”

I'm not sure it's the GOAT, but it's pretty great.

"It has always struck me that while the people at the New York Times consider it the apex of journalism, the highest the ladder of excellence goes, they have not extended that reputation for quality to the acts of listening, receiving criticism, sorting signal from noise, and changing their work. It’s like they know they can’t do it well, so they don’t even try. And being the best in the world at listening and evolving isn’t even an aspiration there. “We are not the resistance” is a crappy read on what people are trying to tell you. But this is one area where mediocrity and worse — incompetence — is tolerated at the Times. Responsibility for that has to flow to Dean Baquet. There is no other place it can pool."

130 minutes of deep house and techno.

Track This

This Firefox tool opens up a 100 tabs (in any browser) and feeds ad trackers a bunch of garbage info that makes it harder for them to pin you down. It's not entirely clear that this is a meaningful thing to do, but it's a great way to demonstrate what trackers are capable of.

WTF is suffering from a serious case of diminishing returns, but it's still capable of great work. David Lee Roth is simultaneously exactly what I thought he was and somewhat of a revelation. He's a big ball of constant, random energy, but also a pretty deep dude with a surprising range of experience and expertise.

An all-analog distortion and lowpass filter with an internal envelope follower and self-modulating cutoff. And it's significantly smaller than the thing I'm replacing, so I get all this awesomeness and extra space in my rack.
