  3. SoundCloud has become my main go-to source for new music. iTunes? Meh. Spotify? Burnt. Pandora? Don’t get me started… Sure, SoundCloud can be a bit of a slog, you never know what you’re going to get, but I think that’s part of the fun. Even a bad mixtape was someone’s baby-boy, pride-and-joy, when they mixed it, so why not give it a listen? You never know, maybe around the 20.35 mark they drop a rad hook…

    Anyway, No, I Mean, Yes' SoundCloud page has a few sets that I'm cultivating and songs that I've hearted, all just for fun. Check it out and send me your pages too. I'd love to hear what you've got.

    Other SoundCloud recommendations:

    Check Yo’ Ponytail
    Mixtapes by amazing artists for the LA based event/concert promo and production company

    Erased Tapes Records
    "Erased Tapes has fostered collaboration between its artists, often fusing disparate musical forms and styles, rendering so-called genres like modern classical, post rock and electronica redundant."

    Monsieur Adi
    I mean, Monsieur Adi is the Frenchman to call if you want to dance your buns straight off. Like, whoa.

  7. On Soul Mates…

    jenndlv:

    I love Dictionary.com’s Hot Word series. Even more so today because they referenced Hedwig!

    Lexical Investigations: Soul mate

    Though the phrase soul mate gained steam toward the end of the twentieth century, the idea goes all the way back to Plato’s Symposium, written in 385–380 BCE. In Symposium, when the two dialogists discuss love, Aristophanes tells Socrates that human beings used to have four arms, four legs, and two faces, and they were happy and complete. But Zeus was jealous and split them in two with his thunderbolt, and now humans spend their lives searching for their other half. This idea of an “other half” has been with us ever since.

    But the phrase soul mate itself was first recorded in 1822, when the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge wrote in a letter, “To be happy in Married Life … you must have a Soul-mate.” Inexplicably, the term has skyrocketed in use since the 1980s, according to Google’s nGram viewer. What do you think precipitated the spike in usage?

    Popular References:

    Hedwig and the Angry Inch, musical, song “Origin of Love” tells the story from Symposium. Song and lyrics by Stephen Trask, musical 1998, movie adaptation 2001.

    One of the finest animation programs in the world can be found at Gobelins l’ecole de l’image in France with campuses in Paris and Noisy-le-Grand. Here’s a graduation film from 2012 that’s recently come to light. It’s called “Distance” by Wandrille Maunoury. Traditionally animated by hand using TVPaint production software. Take a trip through high school angst with this impressive video… — (C) Animation Nation

    Maunoury's beautifully realized short film momentarily transported me back in time, to 2003. That year I was an awkward sophomore in high school with a major crush. I know I'm the only one who watched this film and giggled at the sheer relatability of the girl's naive and melodramatic hallucinations. I can still vividly remember walking past the guy I liked, nervous enough to faint, the world melting away, until I was far enough away from him to be able to breathe again…

    Yeah, that happened.
