‘Gun Galaxy’ by The Hood Internet (CHVRCHES x Alex Metric & Oliver)
I appreciate when somebody forces CHVRCHES to loosen up and dance.
Everything was spontaneous,” Madlib tells me now. “We worked with whatever we had at hand. If you think about it too much, it won’t work. But shit usually works out when you’re with the like-minded. DOOM’s like my super-smart cousin. We trade books and records: Sun Ra equations, biographies of Charlie Parker. Some people are born off that same energy.Articles: Searching for Tomorrow: The Story of Madlib and DOOM’s Madvillainy | Features | Pitchfork
Deconstructed Part 2

Gaming has been around for as long as most of us can remember. Often the gamer is defined by the games they play and the tools they use. The controller is a pivotal tool used in gaming; each console comes with its own controller, designed to maximize the experience of the system. As we game, these controllers become an extension of our own movements. They transform the way we game and our actions and conduct. They are extensions of ourselves, and as we use them we grow attached to their touch. They are used to break language barriers and travel across continents. As we use them, they take on our characteristics, as much as we take on theirs.
Deconstructed is a series of dissected controllers collected from the gamers who owned them. Each controller was used and often played until it was no longer operable. Some have been physically altered, and others were damaged in attempts to fix them. This is their autopsy, a chance to compare our growth and commitment to the tools we use to game.
In reality, the list-growth curve may be more ‘spiky,’ especially in the organic category, as we get support from partners with big email lists that add a big chunk of new names all at once.http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/17/magazine/memo-to-self-do-not-run-for-office.html
