Wow having so much there just makes the ones still missing tilt me! Music Controller slaps. Natsumelo has gems if you look for em. Star Train's updated Imitation World single is a huge statement of how much he developed. Hope the gaps get filled in someday but this just shows how I'll never really be able to rely on music streaming services that don't let you fill in the gaps with your own files.

WOW, it's all really there. Most of the rest of the major works of Yasutaka Nakata are live on your music streaming service of choice (Perfume and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu albums were up already). One of the most impressive discographies in history.

Ok, now dig in and start listening and join me in trying to even wrap your brain around the fact that a single person wrote & produced all these albums in 20 years

Long bet on how long till substack posts accessed blog post style are caked in intrusive pop-ups to subscribe/sign up a-la medium?

I give it 3 yrs max

Along with colte monikha and the Liar Game OST (some of which is new to me!!)

And in light of that, Nakata deep cut of the day - Liar Game OST 2 - Edit

CAPSULE’s entire back catalog hits music streaming services Friday!!!! \o/ \o/ \o/

Absolutely elated to hear about the campaign to start this new venue in Minneapolis it was only a matter of time. India has been pretty quick to recognize foreign actors attempting to take advantage (like smartly blocking Facebook's predatory attempt to roll out free Facebook-controlled internet access)

IMO this is one of the most important geopolitical moves in human history. Curious to see now the response, if it lasts, long-term impact on Indian social media, what nations follow suit, the extent to which google/apple get caught in the middle, etc.

Wow, TIL there's an entire album of Hendrix demo material just sitting around waiting to be released

"...this is, I think, probably the first serious discussion of Abraham Lincoln in the United States of America." - Lerone Bennett, Jr. (2000)

The spike in chess popularity has been really fun to follow lately. Tough even grapple with how the human brain can be capable of this

Also the ongoing PogChamps tournament on twitch has been fun (live now) - Hoping Voyboy can take the cake

Nakata deep cut of the day (filmed months ago and I forgot). Perfume - Voice

The chords in even just the opening moments are so rich. The song also recycles this vocal part over completely different chords in the chorus which makes it that much cooler
