the new movie about the NY Times The movie covers a lot of territory Wikileaks the run up to the Iraq war the recession etc all unified by the Times struggle for economic stability in the age of the internet It s a great movie My excitement about the film lead to buying the book Hard News which covers the history of the times through the prisim of the Jason Blair scandal and reading the book took up much of Saturday Next thing I knew it was Sunday which naturally means it was time for the Sunday Times 3 The NY Times iPad App Back in March I wrote about the NY Times pay wall strategy and theorized that the approach was just too convoluted and expensive to be successful Now after experiencing the total brilliance of reading the NY Times daily on my iPad I am happy to have my Fonzie

    soon grew uncomfortable with both its bad song results and its lack of artist support Through the 2000s I drifted from service to service online Rhapsody Imeem Lala iTunes eMusic I tried them all But somehow despite the cool music platform that the web had become something was missing Some days it was enough and I found treasures but most days it felt a bit cold clinical Listening to music on these services was mostly clean and efficient but it wasn t all that entertaining and it certainly wasn t magical These were algorithms and applications not good friends crafting music experiences The human element was missing For the first time in years I found myself missing the old WNEW FM Then in 2011 I found Slacker Slacker would have seemed like an impossible dream to the eighteen year old me It worked everywhere On my computer on my phone in my car Best of all is the curation At Slacker I have more than 200 pre programmed stations to choose from Sure there are the expected genre stations Today s Hits New Hip Hop Country and an excellent slate of Alternative stations But Slacker also digs really deep with Eclectic Rock G reat Songs You Forgot Old School R B and Grunge 20 Years Later These are thematic stations that terrestrial radio could never dream of With Slacker I can access the biggest hits or reinvent the concept of formats on a daily basis Only people who live and breathe music every day could come up with stations like Dive Bar Jukebox Broken Heart Radio or The 50 Most Embarrassing Facebook Songs No algorithm in the world can put a music mix together like these stations With Slacker I am able to follow hosts like Mat Bates and Scott Riggs whose expert curation routinely blows me away I love Scott s Indie Hits mix and I find Mat s New Music First stations invaluable I really couldn t live without The New 40 the Slacker station that plays the best 40 songs regardless of genre each and every week Yet as good at turning me on to music as Mat and Scott are I love being able to overrule them to have more power than the DJ to take a good station and make it better I can fine tune any station by tweaking the music mix based on related artists song popularity and song age Fine tune is an extremely cool feature I can add sports from ESPN news from ABC and talk from American Public Media At Slacker I have total control of a music library of more than 13 million songs I can lean in and make custom playlists I can lean back by simply typing a band or song name into the Search box and just let the music play For a guy who spent days as a kid making mixed tapes this seems unbelievably fast efficient and wondrous Most important at Slacker I feel like the human spirit of the old WNEW FM lives but within a new technological construct Experts like Scott Mat make superb stations they are bringing music curation back The technology platform makes everything easier better more customizable So go ahead poke around play a station or enter a

Pandora Slacker Slacker Radio Leave a comment on Slacker Bringing Music Curation Back Sacred Songs and Places Inspired by George Harrison Martin Scorcerse s new documentary George Harrison Living In A Material World is filled to the brim with sacred places The Beatles rise is so well known that most Rock fans over thirty probably can recite the stops by heart The Cavern Club Penny Lane Strawberry Fields St Peter s Church Twickenham Film Studios India Blue Jay Way and of course Abbey Road For a Beatles fan Scorcerse s biopic adds one more sacred location to the roadmap Friar Park The documentary suggests that George s most sacred place was his Friar Park home which he purchased in 1970 George devotedly tended to his home and its gardens while also recording and filming there It is depicted lovingly on the front cover of his first proper solo album All Things Must Pass and mythologized in his video Crackerbox Palace All these images got me to thinking about my own musical sacred places 1970 Record department at E J Korvettes department store Brooklyn New York I made my grandma take me here to buy Beatles records First 45 s then albums 1971 1977 Lebiush Lehrer auditorium Camp

cell phones clanking drink glasses and idle chatter Yet the vibe is always warm loose and all about the music These places are sacred to me What are your musical sacred places Author Jack Isquith

thought I knew drinking and I thought I knew about music but truth be told I knew next to nothing My idea of drinking was a 17 year olds technique of dumping out a third of a quart of Tropicana orange juice and replacing it with cheap vodka Musically I was up on the latest New Wave and Punk but I wouldn t know a George Jones tearjerker or a vintage STAX side if it sat down next to me on a rickety Frank s Living Room stool and bought me a snakebite After my first couple of visits I was pretty sure his name was Leo not Frank Leo poured with a heavy hand I remembered that he sighed and smiled when we called him Frank serving us another round of Vodkas and Grapefruits while flipping over a mixed tape The tapes were Leo s He played them loud Ear shatteringly loud Nervous Breakdown Get Off My Cloud The Grand Tour Holiday in Cambodia September Gurls After The Fire Is Gone Lust For Life Johnny Hit and Run Pauline Leo had a thing for X Gardening At Night American Music Cry Like A Baby I m So Lonesome I Could Cry Mamma Tried I ll Take You There Rise Above Color Me Impressed Time of The Season Pale Blue Eyes Sex Bomb One For My Baby Like I mentioned at first we thought he was Frank After all he lorded over the place Frank s Living Room a majestically squalid 500 square foot literally underground bar in the greyest city on earth Albany NY Leo was my personal John Peel Although he was probably barely 30 Leo was my elder statesman He taught me about life love and loss all through the power of a perfectly sequenced mixed tape Leo trafficked in classic Country Rockabilly Soul Garage Rock and the most cutting edge and hardest new Punk and New Wave Without knowing it Leo changed our take on music All genres mixed together All eras counted As long as it was pure it was on the Frank s Living Room list Leo created the model for Hipster Dive Bar Jukebox This station is for the Leo in us all Classic Country Vintage Soul Select Punk New Wave Indie Hipster Divebar Jukebox http bit ly

Glad Sorry After 31 years together as a band R E M announced their breakup today Michael Stipe A wise man once said the skill in attending a party is knowing when it s time to leave We built something extraordinary together We did this thing And now we re going to walk away from it I hope our fans realize this wasn t an easy decision but all things must end and we wanted to do it right to do it our way We have to thank all the people who helped us be R E M for these 31 years our deepest gratitude to those who allowed us to do this It s been amazing From my seat R E M is arguably the most important band in the history of Alternative Rock Part of their importance was certainly the high quality and innovative nature of their music Their first 4 albums are nothing short of a revelation But equally important was R E M s commitment to community communication and a sense of shared purpose with their fans If you talk to anyone who played a part in the College Radio Era of 1977 1983 they will regail you with tales of fanzines weak college radio signals dirty clubs couch surfing kids as promoters and inevitably transcendent R E M shows that brought a community together R E M hardly invented alternative rock Other innovators and brilliant artists shaped the scene before during and after R E M s heyday But if you were lucky enough to engage with them in their prime R E M certainly changed music and being a music fan for the better I m glad to have known them and played a tiny role in their legacy and I m sorry to see them go Author Jack Isquith Posted on September 21 2011
