the soul superstar you've never heard of

"between 1968 and 1977 mingering mike recorded over fifty albums, managed thirty-five of his own record labels, and produced, directed and starred in nine of his own motion pictures. in 1972 alone he released fifteen lps and over twenty singles, and his traveling revue played for sold out crowds the world over.

how is it that such a prolific musician has gone under the radar for the more than thirty years? the answer is that all took place in mike's imagination, and in the vast collection of fake cardboard records and acapella home recordings that he made for himself as a teenager in washington, d.c. in the late 1960s."

in addition to recently having his first art exhibit ever (in winston-salem, nc), mike has a being released tomorrow of all his artwork. all of this newfound interest in mingering mike has sparked some curiousity as to what mike's actual music sounds like. rumor has it that a cd compilation of some of his early home recordings is in the works. for now, you can stream some of mike's very interesting songs over at his . check out more of mike's art at his

furry tv

no, it's not a reality show about (although that would be some good watchin'). it's a new tactile display concept from philips. :

Here's how it works: imagine the fabric is red and the hair is blue. With the hairs lying flat obscuring the fabric beneath, the pixel looks blue. But applying an electrostatic charge causes the hairs to repel each other and stand on end.

This reveals the fabric underneath and changes the pixel from blue to red. With an array of pixels, Philips says it should be possible to build a furry display that can show complete images. The company hopes to build furry displays into outfits. But does that mean we would all have to dress like Teletubbies?

mr. steuer in usa today on the new n.i.n. album

halfway into the in the new usa today you'll find a few passages from mr. eric steuer about trent reznor's smart approach to his new album..
Reznor's scary Big Brother thesis isn't novel, "but he found a cool way to deliver it," says Wired contributing editor Eric Steuer. "He's saying an album is not this fixed piece of media, and it's not just music. It's way bigger. It's art and interactive entertainment. He's pretty geeky and very technical, and he recognizes that you're not dealing with passive consumers anymore."
there's more so check it out.

learn to become a bigger music nerd/snob

ok, so you own every scott walker record. you liked baroque pop before it was cool. you collect strictly rock records on the janus and blue thumb label. you can name everyone in both miles davis quintets. you're "over" david axelrod. you can name every band that ian mackaye was in. you prefer manfred mann's later psychedelic funk records. you've memorized every discography from tyrannosaurus rex to can to pharaoh sanders to faust. but you can't even explain the difference between house and trance? a fellow music nerd turned me onto this very thorough website that explains it all with detailed maps of evolution from 70's ambient to 80's detroit techno to 90's gloomcore? try it .
