Reproductores de música para sustituir Winamp El final de toda una era ha llegado, el antaño y popular reproductor de música para Windows Winamp, anunció que cerrará este 20 de diciembre. Nullsoft, la compañía detrás del producto fue adquirida por AOL en 1999, y muchos la culpan a esta de que Winamp no se haya convertido en un reproductor más moderno y novedoso con los años. Hoy apareció el fatídico mensaje en la web anunciando el fin de Winamp, sin más explicación. 15 años estuvo con nosotros, y debo admitir que hasta la fecha no he conseguido un mejor reproductor de audio para Windows. Sea como sea, podemos conservar nuestro viejo instalador de Winamp, o aceptar la muerte inminente del reproductor y buscar alternativas. Musique Musique es un reproductor relativamente nuevo creado por Flavio Tordini, un desarrollador italiano, famoso por el popular Minitube. La interfaz es hermosa y Musique luce genial. Foobar2000 Foobar2000 es un reproductor clásico y viejo, mas o menos de la misma generación de Winamp. Clementine GOM Audio iTunes

Let's talk, who do you think are the three most important people in Rock-n-Roll history? : LetsTalkMusic Collected Quotes from Albert Einstein [Note: This list of Einstein quotes was being forwarded around the Internet in e-mail, so I decided to put it on my web page. I'm afraid I can't vouch for its authenticity, tell you where it came from, who compiled the list, who Kevin Harris is, or anything like that. Still, the quotes are interesting and enlightening.] "Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to move in the opposite direction." "Imagination is more important than knowledge."

A Brief History of Noise, Part I In the 1970s, older folks regarded punk as untalented, amateur, and above all, noise. Only a few years after its arrival, British artists affiliated with the punk and postpunk scenes co-opted the “noise” designation, turned it into a badge of pride, and pushed the sonic envelope further than many believed possible. A controversial avant-garde and power electronics scene developed that, its adherents boasted, took the DIY spirit of punk more seriously than did many punks themselves. The most direct link between (what would develop into) the noise and power electronics scenes, and the late ’70s punk movement, are with principal players and noise artists William Bennett, of Whitehouse, and Gary Mundy, founder of both Broken Flag records and the experimental group Ramleh. Part of the cultural narrative starts this way, believe it or not: Founding X-Ray Spex member and saxophonist Lora Logic started the postpunk band Essential Logic in 1978 after a falling out with singer Poly Styrene.

100 Miles Per Hour Old friends are dying off at such a rapid pace that I can barely grieve before news of another one’s passing surfaces on Facebook. Arturo Vega, Ronnie Cutrone, Mick Farren, and Allen Lanier all died within the past couple of months. These names are familiar to a few, but not so famous as to merit headlines. Just some nice eulogies on the web and maybe a few postings of a YouTube video or two. I guess that’s what the modern world comes down to: a video obituary posted on a Facebook page with a funny quote written in the comment box. The world is moving way too fast. I was talking to photographer Bob Gruen the other day and he told me he’d just come from visiting our old friend Alan Vega, the lead singer of the band Suicide, in the hospital. Thankfully, Alan's OK. Suicide was anything but boring. Here's what Alan told me about Iggy Pop, the New York Dolls, and Chrissie Hynde's period. Marty Rev and Alan Vega in Berlin in 1978. But you could hear the fucking music blasting from miles away.
