Toro y Moi Contemplates Late Capitalism on 'Outer Peace'

It didn't take long for chillwave to become a punchline after its rapid ascendancy in the late 2000s, and it must have been tough to be Toro y Moi (the alias of producer Chaz Bear, fka Chaz Bundwick), an act known synonymously, and perhaps unfairly so, with the genre. One of the first genres born almost entirely out of the influence of the Internet, chillwave was quickly deemed too easily replicable and far too reliant on provoking cultural nostalgia.But a few proprietors of the sound, like ...

Mystery and Crime Oppenheim, E Phillips: The Colossus of Arcadia (1938); v1

Classic Oppenheim novel: the setting is Monte Carlo, and in the late 1930s with Europe's peace becoming more precarious by the day, there are spies and counterspies, well-heeled refugees. In short, there is trouble in Arcadia. I couldn't find a good original cover so I made this one from a part of 1930s Monaco travel poster Attached Files The Colossus Of Arcadia - E Phillips Oppenheim.epub (480.3 KB)

5 Pro Secrets To Getting Accepted At A Photo Stock Agency

Have you ever thought about selling your images through a photo stock agency? Here are 5 pro secrets to getting accepted. Trying to sell your images can be a very frustrating exercise.

Mystery and Crime Thorne, Guy: Chance in Chains (1914); v1

Guy Thorne (Cyril Arthur Edward Ranger Gull, 1875–1923), British author of over 100 works, fiction and non-fiction, mostly as by "Guy Thorne", a few as by "Ranger Gull" and "Cyril Cresswell Inglesby". Harnessing the new technology of Herzian (radio) waves, a group sets out to break the roulette bank at Monte Carlo. Barely a novel, just 30,000 words, this is sort of a "caper" novel with touches of sf. The only original cover I could find was a blank dark blue hardback, no dust jacket, so I mad...

Murder Charge Can’t Deter Sharpton’s Brother From Voting Rights Crusade

As more states adopt laws that could restrict turnout, Kenneth Glasgow and his allies are pushing to extend the vote to millions of ex-felons. Will the flimsily supported charge against him undermine this movement on the verge of its greatest success? The last weekend in March, Kenneth Glasgow had planned to be in Atlanta strategizing with other Southern organizers about how to help pass the Florida ballot measure that would result in the most sweeping restoration of voting rights for felon...

The 13 best hotel balcony views

Is there really any point in traveling if you can’t post a picture from an envy-inducing hotel balcony, then sit back and stare at the likes rolling in instead of the view? Not in 2018, not really. Hotels around the world are designing themselves to have increasingly competitive balcony views, so screen-scrollers around the world will stop, take a screenshot, and say, “Holy Lagos filter where is that?” The key to a fantastic balcony view is its expression of place, combining images that could...

My Money Blog Portfolio Income – October 2018

For a young person making a plan to reach financial independence at a very early age (under 50), I think using a 3% withdrawal rate is a reasonable rule of thumb. For someone retiring at a more traditional age (closer to 65), I think 4% is a reasonable rule of thumb. However, life is less stressful when you are spending just the dividends and interest generated by your portfolio. The analogy I fall back on is owning a rental property. If you are reliably getting rent checks that increas...

European capitals ranked by cost

Europe used to be cheap. Like dirt cheap. Ask your parents about their 1960s backpacking adventures across post-World War II Europe and they’ll tell stories of 10-cent hostels, five-cent beers, and the best pizza you ever had for a quarter. Like a lot of your parents’ stories, they’re highly exaggerated, but they’re also a far cry from the $7 pints and $200-a-night hotels you find in big Euro capitals now. That’s not to say the entire continent is a bank-breaker, though. Look hard enough and ...

“Automation Divine”: Early Computer Music and the Selling of the Cold War

It was a love song—not what viewers expected, perhaps, who tuned into a July 1956 episode of Adventure Tomorrow, a science documentary program broadcast by KCOP, channel 13, out of Los Angeles. But, then again, it was a love song to a computer. Push-Button Bertha. Sweet machine. What a queen. Jack Owens, the lyricist (and, on that July 1956 episode, the performer), had taken his inspiration from the tune’s composer: a Datatron 205, the room-filling flagship computer of Pasadena-based ElectroData...

Car show for a cause – the Fallen Trooper Memorial Car Show

Toward a predictive theory of correlated materials

Correlated electron materials display a rich variety of notable properties ranging from unconventional superconductivity to metal-insulator transitions. These properties are of interest from the point of view of applications but are hard to treat theoretically, as they result from multiple competing energy scales. Although possible in more weakly correlated materials, theoretical design and spectroscopy of strongly correlated electron materials have been a difficult challenge for many years. By ...

Confinement transition of Z2 gauge theories coupled to massless fermions: Emergent quantum chromodynamics and SO(5) symmetry [Physics]

We study a model of fermions on the square lattice at half-filling coupled to an Ising gauge theory that was recently shown in Monte Carlo simulations to exhibit Z2 topological order and massless Dirac fermion excitations. On tuning parameters, a confining phase with broken symmetry (an antiferromagnet in one choice...

Monaco on the Cheap: 7 Ways to save on the French Riviera

Much like Switzerland, Monaco is far from heralded as a budget destination in Europe. And with good reason. Nestled on the spendy French Riviera, Monaco is overflowing with glitz and glamor from fancy restaurants to million dollar yachts docked on the harbor. It certainly can’t compete with Spain, Portugal, or Slovenia when it comes to value for euros spent. But all things considered, this tiny principality known for its glamorous casinos, the Grand Prix, and Princess Grace (may she rest in peac...

The final day of our weeklong transformation of Jegs’ 1987 Monte Carlo SS Aerocoupe was a long one, as is typical with our Week To Wicked builds.

There are also far more little things that need to be handled than it seems.
