Re: Futbol 2019-20

i forgive you. it doesn't matter anyway. funnily dortmund is the only other buli team apart from bayern who occasionally play on an international top level and they're thinking about firing their coach. it probably all hinges on haaland now. as for rats, like i said, the next season will quite certa...

Re: Recently Watched Films 2020

Ride The Pink Horse , Robert Montgomery, 1947 [...] the hero (not a very likeable one at that) i used to see first halves of old movies as a kid (films started at 8.15, bedtime was at 9 ... it's probably why i still don't care for resolutions) and for some reason robert montgomery was among my hand...

the man who fell to earth by nicolas roeg. i'm sure i was more surprised to find i didn't like this than anybody else will be. i thought it would be a nostalgic revisit of a proven classic, but time seems to have sucked all atmosphere out of this, despite the pretty photography.

Re: fade-outs

some shocking fade out despotism by the leader. well-worn genre, but the records sounds especially great, there's spaces everywhere. except no space for pre-elevator eric gale on electric guitar, who throughout the record usually gets faded out at the mere suspicion of a solo. which is a pity becaus...

Re: fade-outs

thanks! that's really interesting in its boringness, the only way out of the basic set-up but not part of it, and the only aspect of the piece that's not radical at all. here's something more bonkers, a fade-out on laughter put through echo and delay effects (you can read that as a steve reich refer...
