Initially reminded me of an old Library of Congress Alan Lomax field recording. I particularly like “See for Yourself.” Keep it up!
Over 30 Years of MIDI
For Dave Smith, MIDI could only become a success if every manufacturer adopted it - “we had to give it away”, he says.
The universality of the format was perhaps an early example of what now gets called “open source” technology - MIDI’s backers intended it to be a free gift to the world which allowed anyone access.
This technology was the birth of so much modern music. They were using Atari’s and Commodore 64’s as an interface back in the day.
one time I accidentally sent a picture of myself holding a bunch of weed to my step dad
one time I was having sex with my (ex)girlfriend in her bed and in our haste, her cellphone was left in bed with us and it somehow dialled her friend, more of an acquaintance. Who knows how long they were on the line, but it was while. When we quieted down we just heard this small, weirded-out voice, ”hello?…. hello?” coming from under the covers.
"A man must first of all understand certain things. He has thousands of false ideas and false conceptions, chiefly about himself, and he must get rid of some of them before beginning to acquire anything new. Otherwise the new will be built on a wrong foundation and the result will be worse than before. To speak the truth is the most difficult thing in the world; one must study a great deal and for a long time in order to speak the truth. The wish alone is not enough. To speak the truth one must know what the truth is and what a lie is, and first of all in oneself. And this nobody wants to know."
