Radiohead blackmailed

Think this might have been a dream

Radiohead got hacked, lost thom’s personal minidisc
collection
So they decided to release the tracks for free on bandcamp

You are still dreaming. Your sleeping body lies at the side
of expressway 59. Something like ectoplasm but thinner
trickles from your exposed bum-crack.

yeah I saw that, I couldn't quite shake the feeling it was
like he saw the Aphex dump and is aping it, after all there
is no such thing as bad publicity, perhaps im being far too
cynical,

This is the water and this is the well. Drink full and
descend. The horse is the white of the eyes, dark within.

has anyone had the thot that they just wanted a pretext to
dump the archive rather than having had their hand forced

the actual tragedy is the warehouse with all the nirvana,
NIN, jazz, etc. masters burning down

genuinely depressing

that is very depressing, I guess that's why afx keeps his
stuff in ammo boxes, but I always worry about the condition
of those cassettes every year they degrade a bit more : (

it's a bit schizophrenic. i have a compulsive archivist
streak. somewhere, on multiple redundant drives, i have the
first emails i ever sent via a terminal on a vax 11/750 in,
like, 1990 or something. there have been some minor data
disasters, but i've more or less maintained a complete
archive of my digital existence for almost thirty years. i'm
a packrat; i have trouble throwing things out. i've had to
come up with strategies -- like, if there's some widget i
know i should jettison, but i can't quite manage it... i'll
take a bunch of photos, so at least i'll have the photos,
and that makes it easier to get rid of. physical stuff is
like that, but data is easier to lug around....

meanwhile, one day, i'll be gone, and perhaps people will
care about my writings or my musics or my code, but that
meticulously maintained archive of my whole life will
probably not be of much interest and fade away with my soul.

yes im like that, I enjoy archiving and Collecting and
ordering stuff, its satisfying, I don't think my archive of
stuff is as well maintain as what yours appears to be, but I
have stuff going back many years

dad joke

even if i suspect it won't be of much interest after i'm
gone, i get a lot out of it while i'm still here, all the
time.

my father and i were both habitual super-long email writers.
we never really had the patience to organize the phone, we
didn't get together too much, but miles of deep discussion
happened over email. lots and lots of people have commented
that he was a talented writer; that his emails were great.
after he died, i very carefully grabbed most of his hard
drives and backups. i have, essentially, all of the emails
he wrote. i've had this lingering idea to pump it all into a
neural network text-generator and setting it up so people
can email my dad again. sort of a digital homunculus.

or virtial pets

i had tiny elvis for about ten minutes, that shit was
annoying

re: archives of shit, i backed up all the texts i got from a
stalker / occasional girlfriend when i was 15-19, had pages
and pages of them stored as a word document on my old pc.
dunno what's creepiest, the text bombing or compulsive
logging of it. inevitably though i turned it into an Art
Project, poseur ponce that i am
