Here's some audio related stuff you should probably read:
- If you're like me, you've been wondering what Mike D and Ad Rock have been up to since MCA died. Mike D is into wine, and it's not as douchey sounding as you think. In fact, when you read how music influences everything he does, it even makes sense. And Ad Rock has been hanging out/collaborating with the immensely entertaining Champagne Jerry. (I know - it's a pretty old link.)
- I only caught the end of this, but you can be damn sure I'll be going back to listening to the whole thing: why conversation is important, and why communicating with emojis is bullshit.
- While I'm at it, I might as well recommend the 1A podcast for your audio input. It's paced well, is always interesting, intelligent and accessible.
- You should check out Chicano Batman and Khruangbing - good, catchy stuff.
- Talkbass.com - as you may have guessed, a forum for bass players - has a pretty cool thread about under appreciated bassists in famous bands. Who would you put in there? Note that as you scroll through it, you'll see some Fat Friday Feature alums in there.
[UPDATE] I just watched this - "How Flea Plays Bass". I love stuff like this and could watch it all damn day.
