Stereo Heroes

Yeah, just blew out the speakers on my PC listening to this (maxed out); while ironing slacks…


Kris Wadsworth

I get these emails with links to electronica artists, and I was unimpressed with Kris, till the 4th track on his Life And Death album;

You can hear samples from the whole album here: http://www.zero-inch.com/artist/Kris_Wadsworth/album/Life_and_Death/379884?autoplay=true&utm_source=zero%22+%2F%2F+update&utm_campaign=51b7b5e614-November_2012_Essentials11_30_2012&utm_medium=email&mc_cid=51b7b5e614&mc_eid=6ea340d6e8

Chasing Ice Looks Cool


Fred Astaire And Leslie Caron

Some nostalgia today? No pain involved. Leslie Caron is such a good dancer, that Fred was confident enough to lead her (sometimes) like he did. He couldn’t afford the confidence with most of his on screen dancing partners.

Leslie from the movie Gigi, where she is just too damn cute..

That’s My Mother

Jabhat al-Nusra In Syria

They may be Al-Queda affiliated, but Jabhat al-Nusra can move, and they will play hell with Assad’s forces.


Four Tet

This is a song you HAVE to hear at CD quality with headphones. Well worth the purchase, called Everything Ecstatic.
