1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    i know which of those 4 you are (you are actually 2 out of the 4) :devil:



    Naturally the common people don.t want war. But after all, it is the
    leaders of a country who determine the policy, and it.s always a
    simple matter to drag people along whether it is a democracy or a
    fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship.​
    Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of
    the leaders. This is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are
    being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and
    for exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every
    country..

    what you all don't know, is that I used to be Sipang's neighbor when we were young lads. Santa Agatha represent :slayer:

    when i had to leave, he used to ask me to stay. that was overheard one day by a man smoking a cig in a coffee shop. years later, he sung a song of our days together playing on that basketball court that is now a soccer field

    My sisters grew up there. They played with each other in French, spoke to my mother in Portuguese, and my father in English. I was unlucky in my family. I grew up in...New Jersey. :cry:

    Disintegration Loop 1.1 consists of one static shot of lower Manhattan billowing smoke during the last hour of daylight on September 11th, 2001, set to the decaying pastoral tape loop Basinski had recorded in August, 2001. Shot from Basinski's roof in Williamsburg Brooklyn, this is an actual documentary of how he and his neighbors witnessed the end of that fateful day.

    Basinski's The Disintegration Loops had its genesis in the physical process of decay. In the midst of archiving and digitizing analog tapes from the early 1980s, the composer realized that his material was literally disintegrating, leaving eerily silent passages in the midst of lush, pastoral music — "my paradise lost," he says.

    The rest of the 4 part set is similar, of course with different loops "disintegrating" in unique ways.

    In looking up stuff to make this post, I found out that it was performed live on September 11th, 2011 at the Temple of Dendur, and I missed it :(

    This set of 4 records, as well as much of Basinski's other work, had a huge impact on me in the end of high school. Where Brian Eno felt contrived and artificial, Basinski's recordings connected to me in a way that I hadn't experienced since Boards of Canada released Geogaddi. The pairing of d|p 1.1 with the static shot of the smoke was something I searched long and hard for, as it was a limited release on VHS. The advent and rise of popularity of YouTube sorted that out though, and now it can be experienced by everyone.

    That video is great, tween. steveo, the video you posted is horrifying in a Greek tragedy sort of way. I found myself slightly offended when I realized it was a commercial for jewelry. I was looking for a clip from Gus Van Sant's Gerry (ideally with Spiegel im Spiegel by Arvo Part playing), but I could only find trailers. Instead I'll post this by Arvo Part. It's one of my favorite pieces of music. And here's another favorite piece of music (no, seriously, I love this song).
