Ntone was, in the words of Peter Quicke, "for ambient and techno and other stuff that didn't quite fit Ninja Tune, but which we really liked, and didn't want to restrict ourselves from releasing.

RU: As far as cyber-fame visions and all that, it was all so experimental and seat-of-the-pants making it up as we went along that it was hard to really envision it all, but our agent was pretty experienced and thought we were going to be successful. And we were being asked to think about music videos, a conventional and popular medium that I think we could have used to great advantage.
Some people thought Thanx! I may have been a one hit wonder RU: As a matter of fact, a CD is going to be available in about a month, and if people drop me a line I'll put them on a list for it. To this address: Sirioso Yahoo. Or if I said that, would you accuse me of just being polite?
RU: Conceptually, Mondo Vanilli might be less relevant in the sense that you've already had something like the Gorillaz … also Milli Vanilli has faded somewhat as a historical sign post and one of them committed suicide. Also, there's more hostility now towards the sort of reflexive irony and postmodernism that we were playing around with then.
I don't think I would choose to do Mondo Vanilli now. I mean, I'll do it right now if there's a demand for it, but it's not something I would come up with today. And some of the lyrics are dated. This was after I'd already quit the magazine, but I happened to go up to the house that day to hang out and discovered this meeting would occur. It turned out that Madonna's people had been around just a few days earlier to get cyber hip. Meanwhile, this was a particularly desultory period around Mondo.
There was a super-weird vibe around. So the guy who shall remain nameless, but let's call him Jasper who was the point man for organizing this meeting with Prince's representative was drunk. And I remember sitting there with the rep after he'd shown up in the living room of this second Mondo house that had been established down the street from the original… and there were maybe a couple of other Mondo people who had come by for the meeting, but nobody came in to speak to the guy… they all went upstairs, and there were slamming doors and slurry words and weird noises emanating from above.
And I just sat there in front of this poor guy just sort of smirking. I think maybe after about a half hour, people came into the room and "Jasper" introduced himself and there was this sort of meandering and pointless conversation.
It was pretty hilarious. I didn't say a fucking word the whole time. Anyway, back to Mondo Vanilli… people seem to like the music more now than they did then. I think there might be two reasons for that. For one, people were much more purist about their genre identities back then… and we were all over the place. I actually thought I was being original when I described us as genre benders.
It actually seemed like a real challenge to some types of subcultural conformity. Now, pretty much everybody's eclectic, probably because of this tremendous access to all sorts of music. Secondly, people expected a certain thing from me back in or ' It would either be a musical hacker manifesto or it would be groovy raver positivism, but it would have something to do with how they thought about Mondo And this album was off on a weird angle, lyrically and musically. I used to tell myself that it was a great album but it wasn't a match to anything that anybody wanted.
I think that was probably true. It was an orphaned act of creativity. Sirius sitting in a crib, clad only in a diaper, smearing chocolate 'poop' all over himself and crying for his mama. I witnessed this in silent awe, standing no more than 5 feet away from the players in this narrow little shotgun-apartment gallery with maybe 15 other young confused hipsters, for 20 or 30 minutes. When things looked like they were about to take a turn towards 'audience participation,' however, I quietly but willfully made a beeline for the exit.
It HAD to have been a prank performance, a spoof on the grand folly of bad performance art, because otherwise, if it was sincere, it was the wankiest pile of poo I've ever witnessed. So… do you remember that? RU: Yes. It wasn't an official Mondo Vanilli show. We didn't use Mondo Vanilli music, but we were all involved. Actually, the crib — which had spikes pointed inward — was on one side of the space, near the window, and Sim1 was several yards away in front of most of the audience, so she wasn't actually "laying eggs" in front of me.
I don't remember much audience participation. I do remember that guys came close to Sim1 after awhile and started doing something… maybe fondling the eggs!
Sim1's performances were always funny… and that was their intention, other than the presentation of a sort of series of tableaus. It was like viewing a series of surrealist paintings, most of them involving sexuality or excrement.
Her crib remained in the Art Attack gallery window for a while and caused some protest from socially responsible types. RU: I think there were some bits of trouble that I've forgotten, but I don't remember much specifically. That single act might have wrecked my potential life as an elegantly wasted entrepreneur, now that I think about it. We did a performance titled "Eat Cake" at the new age Whole Life Expo that went over like a lead balloon.
I don't think anybody liked that one! RU: Absolutely. I'm sure there are some funny stories that other people can fill in.
The History Project is going pretty well. I think I can complete it within the two years deadline I set for it. I recently had a breakthrough regarding how to write my own memory fragments… Basically, if I give each memory fragment a colorful title, it inspires me to tell the story as a story and to have fun with the language. I just figured that out a couple of weeks ago. RU: Well, I should mention that he'd taken shrooms at the party so that might have entered into his good feelings about our demo tape and promotional package.
The promo package was pretty audacious and absurdist. He might have been swayed by the affected arrogance and the real disrespect for record industry conventions. And it was a good demo tape! It had versions of Thanx! It was good shit. He was still excited about us after the psilocybin wore off. Who's to say what happened after, aside from the situation with Interscope, which I don't blame him for. Maybe he didn't really get the album, as a whole. We heard he liked some of it.
He also went into a well-publicized… ahem… downward spiral around that time. And we did make merciless fun of him for a few years after it all happened. He may have seen the "Keane painting" that Scrappi made of him, which we had online. Sad big-eyed Trent, with the text "Take a walk down lonely street" on it. We were pretty mean!
Laughter 10Z: You're a pretty big Reznor fan, aren't you? RU: I'm a medium-sized Reznor fan. But to me, all the stuff since then seems like more of the same. I know that fans and critics all say, "Oh, he's changed so much," but I don't see it. Scrappi used to say that he should show some real flexibility and do an album that's totally pop. I think he could do a great one. That would be really interesting. RU: Yeah, the weirdest thing was what happened after the record was completed and the Nothing management suggested that we should have a manager.
So after we approached a few people we knew who turned out to not be available, we asked the record label for advice. And they put us in touch with Olga Girard, who was the ex-wife of Trent's road manager, Gerry Gerard! She was managing Monster Magnet at the time, and maybe a few other bands I don't remember. But she went to L. And when she returned, naturally we were hoping she could use her influence and do some battle for us.
And she told us something had happened in L. She wouldn't say what happened, but she said it didn't have anything to do with us. And she did quit the music industry, totally, and wouldn't really communicate with us at all. A total paranoid breakdown.
Maybe the Illuminati got to her! They're tryin' to keep R. Sirius down, man! RU: It is all very strange. Is this what we wrought? I like the idea of an album. I mean, it has a nice jazzy feel, but what the fuck is it? If you're listening to the whole thing though, it's an important part of the atmospherics and the gender dialectics.
But I think there are a lot of generous open-minded people out there now who will listen to an album as an album if you tell them that's your intention. I remember maybe about 10 years ago, Lou Reed was ridiculed for telling people that his latest album release should be listened to as an album and not just scavenged for songs.
I think more people are much more willing to be appreciative of what someone is trying to do now. The knee jerk snarkiness of generation X has been modulated a bit Or America's Got Talent RU: Many televisions would have bullet holes in them. RU: It was a shocker when the release on BandCamp went onto Boing Boing and we discovered that we couldn't give everybody the free copy we'd promised. Now we're used to it and growing fond of the 50 cents apiece.
Hmmm, 50 cents. RU: Nauseous. No, actually Mondo Vanilli was a lot of fun. There was a whole lotta laughing going on. I do think I should've been a rock star. I think it fits my personality. I think the world would have gotten more from me, in the long run, if I could have been even more self indulgent! Look how much you ate over Thanksgiving! VH1 ranked "Baby Got Back" as the sixth-greatest song of the s and one of the 20 best hip hop songs of all time Now as an obese America tromps from one holiday eating binge to the next, I've started looking back on this song as our secret national anthem to gluttony.
And at this special time of year, YouTube has finally supplied the answer to the question: Who else likes big butts — and they can't deny? It turns out that it isn't just Sir Mix-A-Lot But absolutely no one expected that its next stop was this gentle easy-listening version created by singer-songwriter Jonathan Coulton.
He'd never actually met the famous rap artist though he warned readers that Sir Mix-a-Lot "is not an actual knight. But in , Richard Cheese created his own stunning swing version of "Baby Got Back," mimicking the stylings of a big band vocalist — albeit one who's "beggin' for a piece of that bubble. Burger King Says Here's My Scandal Just when you thought it couldn't get any stupider — or any whiter — the Burger King delivers his own demented butt-related rap, dedicating it to Sponge Bob Squarepants.
A newly-married couple performs their traditional first dance together — but their wedding planner apparently wasn't satisfied with the song "Unchained Melody". And since that fateful night in , their two-minute dance floor extravaganza has been watched more than 13 million times in its various incarnations on YouTube.
And through the miracle of the internet, instead of annoying just a handful of customers at WalMart, he ends up getting watched by nearly 3 million viewers on YouTube. Of course, they're also watching 90 seconds of his humiliating escort straight to the Walmart parking lot. And for what, asks a passerby? In fact, it actually formed the basis for a whole episode of Friends. One rebellious animator created his own naughty dance video using "American Girl" dolls , and someone's even dreamed up their own Gilbert and Sullivan version.
There's also an anime version , one with violent zombie-killing footage , and there's even a bible version called Baby Got Book. But only the curly-haired prankster from "FatVids" dared to leave the safety of the internet, and to speak Sir Mix-a-lot's magical but forbidden words in public.
And in one final conversation with Walmart's security guard, he breaks this song's appeal down into its essence. It's the one state where Democrats might actually win one of the toughest media wars ever, meaning TV viewers are seeing some of the roughest ads. And often, your best weapon is your opponent's own words The Bondage and Leather Festival When he was mayor, Gavin Newson "wasted tax dollars organizing a bondage and leather festival," according to this ad.
Though to be fair, that city was San Francisco While ostensibly complaining about the costs, Republican Abel Maldonado is really pressing the "extreme values" button, saying his opponent "wants to do for California what he did for San Francisco. It's the race for Lieutenant Governor, and in a traditionally Democratic state, Maldonado is trying the "kitchen sink" approach — lobbing a hodgepodge of attacks hoping something sticks.
It took a triple murder for mayor Gavin Newsom to admit San Francisco's Sanctuary City policies were a misguided and costly mistake. One of them — a gang member and convicted felon — is now charged with murdering a father and two of his sons. Davis School of Law. But then Republican Steve Cooley was asked how he'd handle his post-election finances. Did Cooley also plan to collect a pension for his work as Los Angeles County's District Attorney, effectively "double-dipping"?
And then there's an awkward pause You've earned it, there's no question. Cooley had inadvertently created an instant attack ad. All that it needed was ominous music. The Great California Mash-up One advantage of the instant attack ad" is it avoids extra and expensive production. For example, this ad is sort of a mash-up, using most of Jerry Brown's original "positive" ad — with a clip from a positive ad by his opponent.
Democrat Brown splices in an apparent endorsement from the former CEO of eBay, Meg Whitman — who just happens to be his opponent in the race. Jerry Brown was California's governor from to , starting his term at the age of He was following in the footsteps of his father, Pat Brown, who became California's governor in , defeating Richard Nixon to win re-election in , and then then losing in to Ronald Reagan. Now at the age of 74, Brown seeks a comeback against a tough opponent who's tapped her personal fortune to fund a non-stop television blitz.
Whitman's campaign was already hurt by stories that she employed an illegal alien — while campaigning on a promise to "hold employers accountable" for hiring documented workers. But last week the Washington Post calls Brown's new mash-up ad "devastating. Filmed in black and white, it cites "Trillions in reckless, wasteful spending There's always been lots of venom for liberal Senators, but Boxer seems to draw an extra helping of scatter-shot rage.
One photograph in an earlier ad — titled "Crushed" — actually cites the Dust Bowl of the s. And for web audiences the Republican Senate Committee even created a special ad citing Boxer's "Decades of epic fail" pointing viewers to a Boxer-bashing site called CallMeMaam. It identifies her first as a "political operative" in the s, then a county supervisor in the s, eventually contrasting her with unpopular Democrat politicians like Lyndon Johnson, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton.
Because unlike them, Boxer is still in Washington, seeking a fourth six-year term. Polls show Boxer may win her race, but the ad wasn't a total waste. With a few changes, the Republican Senate Committee also created an almost identical ad citing "decades of epic fail" for Democrat Harry Reid.
Aloha There was times it was considered one of the closest Congressional races in the country. Four-term incumbent Dan Lungren had actually raised less money than his challenger — for 15 consecutive months — giving Democrats a rare chance to takeover a Republican seat. And that was before a police officer pulled over Lungren while he was talking on his cellphone — during a radio call-in show.
But it all played into the theme they'd already decided on: that Lungren was an arrogant Washington insider. But in both cases, the message is unmistakable. In this case, Lungren argues Nancy Pelosi reflects the "liberal ideas of San Francisco," then calls newcomer Ami Bera "a Pelosi clone," and then fills his ad with unflattering pictures of Nancy Pelosi. Lungren seems to be making a direct appeal to the Tea Party, especially in another ad where he warns that "friends, neighbors, people I don't even know, are concerned about losing their freedom — and I haven't heard that word used as often in my lifetime For whatever reason, they voted for something new, but did not vote for this madness.
And I'd like to make sure that the madness does not continue. Yes, now Democrats and Republicans often seem to live in two different universes — seeing entirely different facts, or drawing the opposite conclusions.
And this was always going to be an unusual election, with the Tea Party energizing some Republican campaigns and the aftermath of a major Supreme Court decision about the financing of campaign ads.
But in theory, the fairest ads still attack a candidate on their actual record. In practice, however California viewers got ads which cherry-picked only the most damning soundbites — almost invariably blowing them out of proportion.
The end result is an election where all the candidates seem to be hitting past each other at some horrific, unidentified bogeyman. And yet on election day, one of those bogeymen is actually going to win. But will emerging technologies destroy humankind — or will humankind be saved by an emerging transhumanism? And which answer is more liberating?
If anybody knows, it's R. And R. But can he answer this ultimate question? Terminator Salvation played with questions about where technology ends and humanity begins.
But what will we do when we're confronting the same questions in real life? Human beings weren't born to be wild so much as we were born to be scared, starting on a savanna in Africa as hunter-gatherers watching out for lions and tigers and bears oh my Okay, maybe just lions , subjected to the random cruelties of a Darwinian planet. I would say that the transhumanist project is probably an attempt to use human ingenuity to make living in this situation as not scary as possible, and in some theories, to actually change the situation, to create a post-Darwinian era.
Sirius's editor's blog Of course, that — in itself — is scary. Our favorite narratives — our favorite movies and stories and comics tend to involve humans being altered by our own technologies to dramatically bad ends. Most of those stories are silly in the particular, but the broader fear of unintended consequences or the use of advanced technologies by intentionally destructive people isn't silly.
For instance, we explored the very rapid development of robotic technologies for warfare during the web site's Terminator Week. That's viscerally scary. Logically it can also mean less civilian casualties, less harm to soldiers, and so on.
And on the other hand, it can also mean less hesitation to use violence against others, or a possibly objectionable system of total control in which revolution is permanently rendered impossible. And on the other hand I can do the "on the one hand and on the other hand" until the Singularity or at least until the Mayan apocalypse of But seriously, what really scares the crap out of me is that we might not make radical technological problem-solving breakthroughs — that we might stop, or that the technologies might fall short of their promises.
What scares me is the idea of a 6 billion-strong species finding itself with diminishing hopes, resource scarcities, insoluble deadly pandemics, and global depression based on the delusions of abstract capital flow resulting in increases in violence and suffering and territoriality and xenophobia. We see this in research by neuropsychologist Bruno Laeng that suggests we are attracted to potential partners who look like us—though not too much like us.
Laeng found that people were most attracted to individuals who share about 22 percent of their facial features as opposed to 11 percent or 33 percent, the other percentages tested.
Other research by social-personality psychologists R. Chris Fraley and Michael J. Marks likewise hit the 22 percent mark. Inbreeding increases the chances that both partners would have the same nasty recessive genes for a disorder or disease. But when two recessive genes for a condition are paired like when close relatives with the same recessive gene make a baby , these genes become active—and so does the disorder or the disease. As for you, the features you happen to be attracted to come in the package of a guy who cheats on his girlfriend.
This reflects bad character. Morally At Leisure. He picks up the tab on most dates, and while he seems OK with this, it makes me uncomfortable. Does our financial inequality mean a relationship between us is doomed? What matters is how fair a relationship feels. It means you each seem equally motivated to make sacrifices to benefit the other—as opposed to one of you pulling the cashwagon, plow-style, while the other just hops on, puts his feet up and enjoys the ride.

According to my analysis of your astrological indicators, your ability to discover, attract and benefit from wonders and marvels will thrive to the degree that you forswear drugs and alcohol and artificial enhancements.
How could I be? I have an abundant curiosity, and I love to learn new things. Their inclination to see me as unimportant influenced me to be dull. I bring this up because now is an excellent time to remove yourself from situations where you have trouble being and feeling your true self. Friends and colleagues but not lovers, they had a playful relationship with each other.
A favorite pastime was figuring out tricks they could try that would cause the other to break into inappropriate laughter while performing. According to my quirky reading of the astrological omens, the coming weeks will be a propitious time for you to engage in similar hijinks with your allies. You have a poetic license and a spiritual mandate to enjoy amusing collaborative experiments, playful intimate escapades and adventures in buoyant togetherness.

Customer service The Hub has always been bike-friendly. So, why the move? Chad had previously worked at a place where coffee and bikes were together under one roof, and I think that was kind of the idea here—to just get a communal space where everything can be shared.
I feel like a lot of bike shops have a hard time staying alive in the slower season. This might help a little bit. It just makes sense. So, a dropout is actually the part on a bicycle where the wheels go in.
