R. Stevie Moore – Sit Down (1980)

Badical. Like some weird American Gang of Four, and predates the “dance-punk” “electroclash” “crump dogging” movement of the early 2000s by two decades. I never got into !!!, I think I was more interested in ska-punk back then (I’m a Christian).

LCD Soundsystem – Losing My Edge (2002)

Are there any legitimately old people (in the traditional sense, i.e. over the age of 15) who have not lost their edge? I would argue the following have not:

РLemmy from Moțrhead
– David Bowie, I would imagine
– Bill Clinton
– Bill Murray
– Joan Rivers?
– David Pease. He taught History of Modern Computing at UCSC. Awesome guy all around. (more info)
– Stan Lee
– Grace Lee Boggs. Check her out in Requiem for Detroit. She’s 100 years old and is still more eloquent/intelligent and lively than most people on Earth.
– Logan Bean

Enviro-Bear 2000: Operation Hibernation

Man this is good. The best part about this game is that somebody had the idea, was amused by it / possibly chuckled a few times, then poured hours and hours into developing it into a finished product. One of my favorite aspects is that there are other bears also driving around the forest in red 1992 Chevy Corsicas seeking fish and berries. Solid.

This is a truly gorgeous blast across the planet, compiled from Google’s Street View images. Imagine showing this to somebody 100 years ago. They might call for the local constable to assail you.
