Maniac - Live Like Bats
Completely unsure what today will bring, so I’ve been up and drinking coffee since five AM. And now comes the loud music.
By the time Facebook introduced the Timeline I’d already deleted my “real” Facebook account, but I still had (have) an account that I use for work/research purposes.
What immediately struck me was that virtually everyone’s timeline was blank before their “joined Facebook” date, and that we were getting an interesting canvas on which to work.
My Facebook Timeline thus includes some fictional milestones in the ’70s and ’80s, like pictures from a 1972 trip to Timbuktu.
It actually surprises me that there hasn’t been more done already along these lines; or perhaps I just don’t see it because I don’t really use Facebook?
Twin Shadow - Not In Love (10cc cover)
My favorite from Twin Shadow’s UNDER THE CVRS series,
When my wife and I first moved in together I couldn’t help but notice that there were an awful lot of 10cc albums in her collection; at the time I was a little dubious, but over the years I’ve come to respect just how much good pop music 10cc created.
Happy cover Friday, kids.

The damage here isn’t that a bunch of people need to figure out how to delete an album1 that they got for free and are now whining about. It’s that Apple did something inconsiderate, tone-deaf, and kinda creepy for the sake of a relatively unimportant marketing campaign, and they seemingly didn’t think it would be a problem.
