seems like the perfect day to highlight the most important drum machine of all time, the Roland TR-808. This drum machine kinda sucks, to be honest, but it was cheap and thus was co-opted by early rap producers to define the sound of early hip-hop. It's use has spiralled out of control, and you can hear it in all styles of music now. Here's a playlist of tracks that heavily use the TR-808, from Marvin Gaye to Phil Collins to Run DMC to early techno to Sublime.

Hallucinating at the Beach Edition

The End of Western Civilization

An artificial appropriation of different styles from different eras, the hipster represents the end of Western civilization – a culture lost in the superficiality of its past and unable to create any new meaning. Not only is it unsustainable, it is suicidal. While previous youth movements have challenged the dysfunction and decadence of their elders, today we have the “hipster” – a youth subculture that mirrors the doomed shallowness of mainstream society.

animals drink too

NYT reports on new research that wild animals drink alcohol, maybe i can use this to excuse my weekend habits?

German scientists have discovered that seven species of small mammals in the rain forests of western Malaysia drink fermented palm nectar on a regular basis. For several of the species, including the pen-tailed tree shrew, the nectar, which can have an alcohol content approaching that of beer, is the major food source — meaning they are chronic drinkers.
