Be that as it may, during an era in which techno’s popularity is at an all-time high, the Belleville Three have been somewhat removed from the conversation.
As we recently touched on in our Movement 2016 coverage, May, Atkins and Saunderson met as teenagers in the rural Detroit suburb of Belleville. For having taught the other two how to produce electronic music, Atkins is often referred to as “The Originator.” In addition, he’s credited for coining the term “techno” itself with the 1988 compilation Techno! The New Dance Sound of Detroit, which he adopted from
Welcome to October 21st, 2015, or as it used to be known: "the future."
Forever memorialized in Robert Zemeckis' Back to the Future Part II, today is the date on which Doc Brown, Marty McFly, and his girlfriend Jennifer Parker step out of the DeLorean and into the Hill Valley of the future (or as it's currently known: "the present").
You may have heard about this. People are pretty excited about. At the risk of being hyperbolic, you
The Stuff is centered around a mysterious, fluffy food product known only as, well, “The Stuff.” Discovered bubbling up from the grounds in a remote mining area, the highly addictive substance is quickly marketed out as pretty much the greatest
The burden of choice was something Alvin Toffler wrote about in 1970’s Future Shock. Toffler theorized that there may one day come a point where
I was halfway through Nightmare Movies, Kim Newman's perceptive and entertaining book about horror cinema since the 1960s, when I had my first anxiety attack. Spawn of the Slithis? Trail of the Screaming Forehead? All those horror movies, 95% of which the author estimates he has actually watched! He and I are of the same generation, and started reviewing films around the same time, in the early 1980s. So how come he's seen so many more than me?
Ideally, one would be able to explain the discrepancy by dismissing Newman as the sort of otaku who never shifts from the sofa in front of his DVD player, but that just isn't true; all the signs are he leads a full and active social life, certainly fuller and more active than mine.
In the opening minutes of Future Shock, a 1972 documentary based on the book of the same name, a bearded, cigar-puffing, world-weary Orson Welles staggers down an airport’s moving walkway, treating the camera like a confidante. “In the course of my work, which has taken me to just about every corner of the globe, I see many aspects of a phenomenon which I’m just beginning to understand,” he says. “Our modern technologies have changed the degree of sophistication beyond our wildest dreams. But this technology has exacted a pretty heavy price. We live in an age of anxiety and time of stress. And with all our sophistication, we are in fact the victims of our own technological strengths –-
This week, as befits a child of the English Midlands (not to be confused with Middle Earth, no Orc or Hobbit, I), I thought I'd get all Shakespearean on your asses. First, I'd just like to state that my editor, the bounteous Tyler, says I need to get to the point more quickly, so here we are [Ed note: I trimmed this a bit]. This week's topic is the tricky subject of meetings. Where the jiggins do you meet when you work from home? Maybe you designate the utility room as a conference room, with Danish pastries and coffee on top of the ironing board. If it's a "my place or yours?" scenario, you might want to opt for the latter. There's also the option of your local café, or joining a members' club--all options that we will explore in full. Shakey's iambic pentameters coming up in a bit.
I have spent the past three years working
