Picked up the CD of this for a penny used a few years ago, When the wife was laid up with a spiral fracture of the leg, it became a permanent fixture for solo driving.
The follow-up is an utterly amazing collection of trip hop remixes that arrived too late in the trend curve to get properly noticed.
I still remember the period of unease in the recording industry when people were afraid that electronica was going to eat the heart of rock and roll, still whole and beating (albeit spastically).

the world is no longer this shape
For those of you who never thought you’d see Crass and Kim Wilde on the same cover (like me) you’re wrong wrong wrong.
capyrancher said: Do you think comics publishers would ever commission series regular artists who missed issues and needed fill-ins to go back and re-do the missing monthly issues for trade consistency etc? I realize it would change the nature of the trade as a document-of-preservation but could make some multipart story-lines a lot less jarring and appear as originally intended. I also realize people are buying them "as is" but don't singular artist trades sell better than random grab bag ones?
We’ve gotten part of the way there, with DC commissioning new pages for collected editions in the past (Final Crisis and We3 being the ones that immediately spring to mind, but I’m sure it’s happened with other collections) — they also had George Perez re-do pages from the Infinite Crisis series for collection, and Cameron Stewart re-drew Ashley Wood’s pages from The Invisibles for the final collection.
I’m sure it’ll happen eventually, if it’s not already been the case, but if/when it does, there’ll inevitably be those who’ll complain that either (a) they’re being punished for buying the single issues, or (b) the collection is somehow being unfaithful to the original incarnation of the story and demanding that the original version is also included in there somehow.
Seems like doing this would be tacit admission that the final product is the trade and not the monthly, so I’ve a tougher time seeing this coming down the pipe. However, it would be nice if they actually scheduled things with enough lead-time so that this wouldn’t be necessary. I know lie happens and all that, but schedules are often tight in the business.
this is the box of dice I have to sort
So sparkly …I kind of want to dive into this box the way most people want to lay on a bed of money.
There is nothing about this that doesn’t entertain the hell out of me.
Greatest back of the comic book ad of 1977 and maybe ever.
