Robocop, It’s deeper than you thought

I always liked the film Robocop, even though it is a bit too violent in my opinion. However hearing the director’s reasoning for the violence actually did make me have a new perspective on it. Here’s a pretty fascinating short film about the film that’s very worth the watch.

Amazing 1980s VHS Macintosh and MIDI documentary!

There’s a lot of these old vids surfacing on youtube these days, but this is definitely one of the coolest ones I’ve seen.

I love Herbie Hancock’s song on here “Little by Little” I can’t seem to find it anywhere. If anyone knows if this is actually on a release of his anywhere, let me know!

Meet Oded Kafri, Drummer, world traveler, and a man with simple life philosophy

Oded Kafri

I really love this man. Not only is he a completely amazing drummer and performer. He has such a level-headed and simple view of life it is truly inspirational. This is what music is all about.

Check out his amazing live drumming to Squarepusher!

Rare 1988 documentary about sampling from Australian TV!

Very cool piece of sampling history here. This 1988 documentary explores the ethical implications of sampling. Funny how this was made so long ago and this topic is still as heated as ever. My personal thoughts are if you take the sample and make it into something of your own, that’s no different than using a square wave on a synthesizer as your starting point of a synth patch. However, if you use an entire chorus or hook of a song and do nothing to it but slow it down, or just loop a 15 second unchanged clip over and over again, it’s theft.
