Posted by Coola at May 20, 2017, 5:00 pm in music , tags: MC5 1960 punk rock n roll

SCREENSHOT

MC5 was an American rock band from Lincoln Park, Michigan, formed in 1964. The original band line-up consisted of vocalist Rob Tyner, guitarists Wayne Kramer and Fred "Sonic" Smith, bassist Michael Davis, and drummer Dennis Thompson. "Crystallizing the counterculture movement at its most volatile and threatening", according to AllMusic critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine, the MC5's leftist political ties and anti-establishment lyrics and music positioned them as emerging innovators of the punk movement in the United States. Their loud, energetic style of back-to-basics rock and roll included elements of garage rock, hard rock, blues rock, and psychedelic rock.... read more

The Creeps -- Enjoy The Creeps 1986

Posted by Coola at May 13, 2017, 5:27 pm in music , tags: garage rock n roll The Creeps

SCREENSHOT

An uninhibited, unpretentious garage rock band, the Creeps were formed in Sweden in 1985. Taking as their principal starting point the work of the Animals, Robert Jelinek (vocals, guitar), Hans Ingemansson (Hammond organ), Anders Olsson (bass) and Patrick Olson (drums) have become something of a Scandinavian Hamsters via their hard-gigging schedule. Their debut album, Now Dig This, was released in 1988. Their most popular song, ‘Ooh I Like It’, became a major Swedish hit two years later, and was eventually voted Best Song Of The Year by MTV viewers in 1990. The parent album, Blue Tomato, proved another major success, though the Creeps’ fixation with live performance has never been properly converted to the studio. Such was the scale and intensity of their touring that they were forced to take a career break in the early 90s with various members on the verge of nervous breakdowns. Refreshed, they returned in 1993 with the typically upbeat Seriouslessness, a superbly rendered collection of bar-room R&B songs.... read more

Sonic Youth - Goo

Posted by Coola at May 5, 2017, 5:15 pm in music , tags: Sonic Youth Goo rock garage

SCREENSHOT

Goo is the sixth studio album by American alternative rock band Sonic Youth. It was released on June 26, 1990 by record label DGC. The album was Sonic Youth's debut release on a major record label, after the band signed to Geffen Records following the release of Daydream Nation (1988).

Goo was recorded over a short period in early 1990 at Sorcerer Sound Recording Studios and Greene St. Recording with Daydream Nation producer Nick Sansano and additional producer Ron Saint Germain. The album's sound diverged considerably from their earlier material and is often considered "their most accessible album", with elements of experimental rock, garage punk, alternative rock and hard rock.

Lead single "Kool Thing" charted in the United States, United Kingdom and Ireland. Two other singles—"Disappearer" and "Dirty Boots"—were also released from the album, although neither were as successful as "Kool Thing".... read more

Silicon Valley leaders are working on a 'tech pledge' they want companies to get behind

Posted by Coola at May 3, 2017, 5:58 pm in general , tags:

Tech leaders are creating a "pledge" to support shared social, economic, and political values that they hope all of Silicon Valley can get behind.

In a series of tweets posted May 2, Sam Altman, a top investor and president of startup accelerator Y Combinator, revealed the first draft of "The Tech Pledge." It asks tech companies to commit to keeping user data private and supporting legal immigration.

More tenets will be added to the pledge in the future. Altman and his fellow organizers — including Debra Cleaver, the founder and CEO of Vote.org, and Matt Krisiloff, director at Y Combinator Research — are seeking feedback through May 16.

Business Insider first reported on the initiative in April, when Altman spoke at San Francisco's Commonwealth Club. He said he had spoken to hundreds of tech leaders and investors about creating a set of core values for the industry, and had been coordinating the effort over email, Google Docs, and a handful of meetings in Altman's home.... read more

A Short History of Korean Film

Posted by Coola at May 1, 2017, 6:13 pm in general , tags: Korean History Film

1903-1945: Korea Under Japanese Rule

Only fragments remain of Korea's early film history. The vast majority of Korea's early film footage was lost due to neglect or the destruction brought about by the Korean War, and not a single feature produced before 1934 survives in complete form today. Nonetheless, historical records paint a picture of a lively and creative industry that produced over 160 features from the early twenties until Japan's surrender to Allied forces in 1945.

From 1909 to 1920, a series of theaters were built in Seoul and in regional cities such as Pusan and Pyongyang. Most of these theaters were owned by Japanese businessmen, but a few Korean theater owners built up a significant amount of capital screening European and American imports. This capital would eventually be used to help finance the first domestic productions. Korea's first "film" (The Righteous Revenge), a kinodrama in which actors performed against the backdrop of a projected feature, debuted at Seoul's Danseongsa Theater in 1919. The public reportedly loved the show, but the long-term prospects of this and other kinodramas were hampered by intellectuals who criticized the mixed-media format as an insult to both theatre and film.... read more
