I just upgraded the hosting plan for my SPEKTRMODULE podcast, which will allow me to bring the frequency closer to weekly.
(The new hosting plan also gives me the option of designing standalone Android and iOS apps for the podcast, but I really don’t have that kind of time, and I really don’t want to charge people yet for that kind of access, which the system seems to want me to do.)
The great joy of SPEKTRMODULE, for me, is locating new music, and rooting through my digital collection, to find things I like that go well together. It’s me little hobby.
But, since I want to increase the frequency, I’m going to do this: if you make music that fits the general tone of SPEKTRMODULE, could you maybe send me a link at email@example.com ? I do love to discover new stuff.
The SPEKTRMODULE podcasts all live here. The most recent one has been listened to by some 25,000 people, which I frankly find baffling.

|I love that Ego Assassin describe their heavy latex belt pocket as “just the right size to carry a phone, cigarettes, and a wallet.” Jodi and James understand the essentials. Retail is $40 at their site, but I don’t know if that’s USD or CAN (they’re based in Toronto).|

In association with Diesel Sweeties Store, we made, for one week only, a new t-shirt. Rich Stevens says of it:
If the internet was honest about itself, Baconcoin would be the new hotness in crypto currencies. Decode its delicious code if you dare.

As you can see. Pull it over your head and wear the visage of Scroobius Pip as a mask. Insane. Also, frankly, a bit disturbing when they’re the first thing you see on Instagram in the morning.
Buy them here. Scroobius notes that, although they’re a men’s cut, “The girls in the shoot were liking the small and mediums.”
You all know Scroobius Pip, right?

I missed this earlier, due to being out of the house and nobody emailing to tell me it was going live today. I’m looking at you, Greg.

Because I swear it looks to me like she’s breathing out a word in water. Exhaling liquid language. The shot is by Francesca Woodman, an artist who died in 1981 according to this collection of her work at Fluid Radio. Click through for some more fascinating images.

The network is the drone’s native environment. So, we must – like our colleagues in biology – see them as part of this wider ecology, if we want to better understand their use and their meaning.
A great “state of play” talk by Honor Harger, who ran the IMPROVING REALITY thing I spoke at last year.
