Resistive Record

Design experiment from the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design creates electronic sound loops with a turntable and discs with conductive paint:

Conductive paint and resistive graphite were used to draw functioning circuits on paper discs. When the synthesizer completes the circuit its pitch is changed by the varying resistance of the graphite strips.


Amazon Prime Day is coming. Prepare to shop your brains off.
Amazon is celebrating its 20th birthday (crazy, right?) by launching Prime Day, a global shopping extravaganza for Prime members that could just out-bargain even the most legendary of annual shopping days: the one and only Black Friday. On Wednesday, July 15, new and existing Prime members all around the globe will be given crazy deals and mega-bargains for a period of 24 hours. Unlimited Free Two-Day Shipping is a given and discounted prices on products "across categories including electronics, toys, video games, movies, clothing, patio, lawn and garden, sports and outdoor items and more" will be open and widely available.

tumblr is a truly toxic website. And this goes for pretty much every ideology found on this website. The amount of times I’ve seen blatant lies spread around, all to further a certain agenda, is just ridiculous. Doxxing, death threats, cyberbullying… the list goes one.

This website could be amazing. A place where people can blog about what they’re are interested in and if it is debate-worthy, have a rational discussion about it.

Instead it’s a cesspool of hate-mongering, scare tactics and guilt trips. A status quo is slowly being built up, and anyone that dissents is any number of horrific things. “Racist! Sexist! Bigot!" Most of the time, that person is none of those things. They’re just someone who dares to disagree.

I only stay on this website because SOME of the content is actually really good. Some really talented content-creators, artists and writers can be found here, and that’s great to see. Hell, there are even some people who do get involved in political discussions who do so reasonably. But most of it is garbage.

Some people on this website need a fucking reality check.
