    My father have got a crash on his bike, bruised kness and hands, and a fissure in the pelvis... nothing serious for a man on his 74 years and still in a good shape.

    Thanks god for a life of no smoking, good diet and bike riding, go dad!! You're very inspiring!!

    • My uncle, who is 70, is also a long time cyclist. Last year he came from France to Portugal on his bike, alone. Took him 7 days to make the 1500Kms.dmay
    • 2 weeks after, he made the trip back, the same way...dmay
    • ^ cool!OBBTKN
    • Went back to the news in the local paper, and it was even harder: 1765Kms in 6 days, including 3 sleepless nightsdmay

    making beats

    Does Aphex Twin make anyone else feel like you're going insane? No disrespect to Alex James - I love his music - but some of this stuff would have been perfect to use on the Taliban when they were trying to make them crack in interrogations.

    • Hehe, Richard D James = Aphex Twin. Alex James is cheese mogul/ Blur bassist/ cunt. Aphex's sound these days is a deliberate Parody for the fucks...kingsteven
    • doesn't at all have the same impact (via years of imitation) as it did in the 90's. you have to dig for the good ones... or Selected Ambient Works Volume IIkingsteven
    • most of his tracks are probes of a certain sound/ device/ technique... but when he probes the heartstrings it turns dance floor nostalgists to goop.kingsteven
    • I like a few of his tracks from over the years but really can take or leave his stuff.microkorg
    • Yeah, the second half of his last EP is like that. Def. dig a lot of his music, but he's easily the most over-hyped IDM dude in history.section_014
    • Does he still live up here in Scotland? Not his biggest fan but would love to go round, hang out and play with his music toys!microkorg
    • i think he is aye, 5 studios in his place apparently.kingsteven
    • does he still own his tank?autoflavour
    • I think i read somewhere that he still does. Wonder if the yokels that live near him have any idea of his music. Lol @ the idea of Farmer IDMmicrokorg

    Pastor performing baptisms killed by crocodile

    Docho Eshete was with 80 others Sunday at Laka Abaya in southern Ethiopia when the crocodile attacked during the baptism ceremony.

    "He baptized the first person and he passed on to another one. All of a sudden, a crocodile jumped out of the lake and grabbed the pastor..."

    • Yes, gets better and better as it unfolds. A good part for him, not unlike Vince Vaughn in Brawl in Cell Block 99 (also worth watching).spl33nidoru
    • Is it realistic or fantasy?nb

    • That was never in question. What this photo tells us that only he can create real shit against any union because of that power.sted
    • Who cares if it's not a new thing or not? People are still obsessing over the inconsequential distractions that he provides. More liberties away taken daily.set
    • Yuekit, he has about as much power as a footballl team mascot does over winning the game.set
    • Away taken daily. See, Trump is turning me dyslexic.set
    • Fadein as usual your comment is completely ridiculous. I don't even get what your point is other than simply to try and counter me in any way possible...?set
    • You say it as if everyone knows that and acts accordingly already, which sadly is clearly and absolutely not the case.set

    • Christ Set, how triggered? it's blatantly obvious that he's a sideshow/distraction... its old news, you shared it like divine knowledge again.fadein11
    • Your tone as ever was to belittle people who find the sideshow amusing. Who do you think people here are, "unlit" morons to use millennial speak (yes you arefadein11

    • You have deep insecurity issues fadein.set
    • How you picked up all of that and took offence and felt threatened simply by me sharing what I did is utterly and hilariously beyond the paleset
    • Felt threatened? not at all, I merely commented that political distractions are not a new thing, and you lost your shit again and insulted me.fadein11
    • Wasn't even an attack on you lolfadein11
    • I didn't lose my shit at all I pointed out how ridiculous your comment wasset
    • And you threw yourself into a tirade of defensiveness and abuse, lol.set
    • but it wasn't ridiculous, it was a simple fact (yes a fact) backing up what you said. Jesus lol.
      anyway, moving on eh.
      fadein11
    • I think people are aware that the Trump shit sideshow is a distraction from the real business. Doesn't stop Trump being highly entertaining though does it?fadein11
    • Just because it was nothing new to you doesn't mean its not worth discussing or mentioning to any other human being on earth, nutter.set
    • ... and when 99.9% of discussion even here revolves around him as a character and his meaningless misdoings, rather than serious dismantling of positive...set
    • ... governmental structure behind the scenes, then I think that's worth discussing rather than brushing under the carpet like you'd rather do because...set
    • ... you reckon it's 'nothing new'.set
    • I think it's worth mentioning every single fucking time, personally, because that shit is no laughing matter.set
    • jesus. you are hard work. have a good day.fadein11
    • But yea its nothing new is it, so let's just get back to being distracted. Wanker.set
    • I'm no distracted though, I was agreeing with you you dipshit, it's been going on for centuries. Have to say I don't buy all of your student conspiracy shitfadein11

    blog

    Feeling very grateful for the music I love, most of which – as it happens – originated from black musicians. (Jazz, Funk, Afrobeat, Reggae, Dub, Hip Hop, Disco, House, Techno, Jungle, Drum 'n' Bass, Garage, Grime) Credit where credit is due.

    • If we're as as good at everything else as we are at music in its various forms we'd have no worries. It's the only thing that keeps me going sometimes.Fax_Benson
    • No jazz. No life.shapesalad
    • I love all that music too, but is it good objectively? it's popular, it's disposable, it's artistic, it makes you feel good, but is it good? does it stack up to_niko
    • ...classical in any way? I don't know anything about music, i don't really like classical but do those genres compare?_niko
    • hiphop, house, techno jungle, drum and bass are all about rhythm and a beat...anyone with an 808 or a computer now days is making "music" hell,_niko
    • every idiot like Khalid, calling him or herself a dj by just spinning records are glorified as musicians these days but are they good? is this good music?_niko
    • again this is the shit I like and grew up listening to but will any of this be remembered like mozart, beethoven or bach in 200 years?_niko
    • also, i think funk, jazz, soul, afro beat etc is real music made by real musicians. give me bill withers and a guitar sweating on a stool over tekashi69 any day_niko
    • so to summarize my meandering post, I agree with mort; music's been on a downward spiral since the days of white wigs; I'm old; get off my lawn._niko
    • music is still the highest form of art.sted
    • push and sliding buttons and shit
      and don't forget about autotunes
      utopian
    • why care about what tool or method was used to generate the music what inspires you. 500 years ago we made music with rectum from dead kitties.sted
    • i love the carribean african influence too. merengue, salsa, bachata, afro cumbia, and don't forget brazil's influences of bossa nova, samba,hotroddy
    • african's have introduced rhythm into music. You can't dance without rythem which is what made it a global phenomenom.hotroddy
    • https://www.youtube.…hotroddy
    • forgot to include reggae in that list!hotroddy
    • Interesting. You can’t really dance to classical music and you can’t fuck to it either lol_niko
    • non-african hispanic music = tango, ranchera, andean music = lolhotroddy
    • https://www.youtube.…hotroddy
    • most classical music is utter shit, much like everything else. the shit you've heard of is the work of prodigies and intellectuals. the good shit aspires tokingsteven
    • folk culture, spirituality.kingsteven
    • niko, couldn't you say the same about visual art and the fields we work in? Like modern art and design is all shit and only classical painting is valid? :)yuekit
    • Original post wasn't intended to be a this vs that thing. Just an appreciation of the roots of so much of what we listen to today. Music is so subjective.mort_
    • I think the most you can say in terms of good or bad is whether it comes from a place of authenticity or is purely commercial.mort_
    • Personally I tend to prefer the more underground, edgy artists in each genre. I don't believe that what's popular or what will be remembered in 200 yeas...mort_

    Punches For:

    People in the US that say "cheers" instead of saying goodbye. I have three people at work that do it, and one of them just started saying it. He used to say "goodbye" before a new guy began working and started saying "cheers", now the other one says it like 20 times a day. He says it instead of "thank you", too.

    PUNCH

    • well, at least he's not saying cheerio!_niko

    suicide

    There are people who have problems, get overwhelmed and kill themselves with no premeditation and leave a family behind, and then there's people who believe in the right to die.

    I'm in the latter category, and will probably off myself before I'm 40, and I don't think it's that big of a deal.

    • just don't, this is way too earlyApeRobot
    • It’s a big deal.monospaced
